Natson has been on the team's practice squad after making an impression in the preseason, and finally earned a roster spot. The 23-year-old will likely contribute on special teams, but with ArDarius Stewart (groin) not certain to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, he could see some opportunities as fourth wide receiver if Stewart cannot play.
Natson had two receptions for 56 yards, including a 51-yard reception, and a 31-yard punt return in Thursday's preseason win over the Bengals.
Natson had an impressive preseason and could make the final roster as a kickoff or punt returner along with a reserve receiver. The Colts will likely decide between Natson and Quan Bray for the return jobs.
Natson had three receptions for 13 yards on three targets and two kickoff returns for an average of 21 yards in Saturday's preseason win over Pittsburgh.
Quan Bray and Natson are battling for the kickoff return job. Natson got some time with the first-team offense which is an encouraging sign he'll make the 53-man roster. He may not have much of a role on offense, however, if he makes the team.
Natson had three receptions for 60 yards, one rushing attempt for seven yards and returned both punts and kickoffs in Saturday's preseason loss at Dallas.
Natson made a strong impression for a second consecutive preseason game. He could win a return job and a reserve receiver role. The undrafted free agent from Akron is small (5-foot-7, 160) but has elite speed.
Natson had five receptions for 51 yards and returned both punts and kickoffs in Sunday's preseason loss to Detroit.
The Colts have a wide-open competition for both return jobs, so Natson could be a candidate to make the roster on special teams. The undrafted free agent from Akron is small (5-foot-7, 160) but says he can run a 4.38 second 40-yard dash, according to the Indianapolis Star. He was second in the nation last season in punt returns with 16.3 yards per attempt.
