Position Listing
Anthony Fabiano
News
The Colts promoted Fabiano to their 53-man roster Saturday.

Fabiano has spent time on the practice squads of the Patriots, Giants and Redskins this season before joining the Colts last week. The second-year center is expected to provide depth on the offensive line.

Johnathan Calvin
No Updates
Chester Rogers
News
Rogers had two receptions for 39 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over Houston.

Rogers got ample playing time the past three games with Donte Moncrief out, but had just three receptions on 11 targets. His production would likely improve if Andrew Luck is able to return from a shoulder injury in 2018, but it's not clear if Rogers will be given a shot a top-three receiver role.

Jon Bostic
News
Bostic (knee) was placed on injury reserve by the Colts on Monday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News reports.

Bostic suffered the injury in last Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and while the specifics remain relatively unknown, his 2017 season has come to an end. Anthony Walker and Jermaine Grace are set for increased workloads at inside linebacker over the final two weeks of the season.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Ryan Kelly
News
Kelly (concussion) was placed on injured reserve by the Colts on Monday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News reports.

Kelly did not play in last Thursday's game against the Broncos, marking his third straight missed contest. The 24-year-old had not progressed through the league's concussion protocol as hoped and will have the entire offseason to recuperate, leaving Mike Person to continue as the Colts' starter at center.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Brad Kaaya
News
The Colts signed Kaaya off the Lions' practice squad Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

After being drafted by Detroit in the sixth round of the draft in April, Kaaya was waived three times by two different teams before ultimately joining the Lions' practice squad in late October. The Colts evidently recognized some potential in the 22-year-old, who will get a look during their final week of practice of the season. Indianapolis could view Kaaya as a potential backup candidate in 2018 with Scott Tolzien set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Jermaine Grace
News
Grace (hamstring) practiced without limitations Friday and will be ready for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Grace hasn't seen the field since Week 2 against the Packers, when he played strictly in special teams scenarios. Top middle linebacker Deion Jones rarely leaves the field, so don't expect Grace to log many defensive snaps or serve as a relevant fantasy option.

Anthony Castonzo
News
Castonzo (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Castonzo was limited to a handful of snaps in practice Friday after not practicing early in the week, but he is apparently well enough to play Sunday. The 29-year-old will start at left tackle for the Colts against the Texans.

Jack Mewhort
News
Mewhort was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury Saturday, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Mewhort underwent an MRI after his knee swelled up Friday and it was decided that another surgery was necessary. The 26-year-old sustained a meniscus injury late last season as well, and will finish on IR for the second consecutive season.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Mike Person
News
Person (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Because starting center Ryan Kelly is out with a concussion, Person is expected to snap the ball Sunday.

Matt Jones
News
Jones signed with the Colts on Monday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

The 2015 third-round pick has been with the Colts since the Redskins released him in early September, initially joining the practice squad and then making it up to the active roster. He was released Saturday but will rejoin the team just two days later, perhaps hoping to get a few more carries as the Colts play out the string of lost season. Jones has five carries for 14 yards in three appearances this year, and he'll still fall behind Marlon Mack (and possibly Josh Ferguson) if the Colts decide to cut back Frank Gore's workload.

Ross Travis
News
Travis brought in both of his targets for 33 yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.

Travis saw increased playing time on offense (10 snaps) with Brandon Williams suffering a concussion. It's possible he could be given a larger role in the offense for the balance of the season, due both to Williams' injury and the fact he's likely to have increased his knowledge of the playbook since joining the Colts in late November.

Malik Hooker
News
Hooker injured his knee Sunday and is questionable to return, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.

With Hooker on the sidelines, the Colts only have two remaining healthy safeties -- Matthias Farley and Darius Butler. A quick return would be beneficial, but if Hooker can't make it back, he'll shift his focus to getting ready for a Week 8 matchup with the Bengals.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Rashaan Melvin
News
The Colts placed Melvin (hand) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Melvin has acted as the No. 1 cornerback for an injury-ravaged Colts secondary for much of the season, but he's been sidelined the past four weeks with a dislocated metatarsal on his left hand and didn't make enough progress in his recovery to gain clearance for the Week 17 matchup with the Texans. With Melvin unavailable for the season finale, Kenny Moore, Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston should serve as the team's primary corners.

Injury
Hand - Injured Reserve
Anthony Johnson
News
Johnson was promoted to the Colts' active roster Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Johnson has spent the past month on the Colts' practice squad after spending previous stints with the Jets and Patriots. Look for the Johnson to play in a reserve role on the defensive line behind starter Margus Hunt.

Colin Jeter
Injury
Rigoberto Sanchez
No Updates
Erik Swoope
News
Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that Swoope (knee) won't be activated from injured reserve this season, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

The Colts designated Swoope to return from IR after he resumed practicing Nov. 8, but with the tight end's three-week evaluation window coming to a close Wednesday, Pagano and the coaching staff determined Swoope hadn't made enough progress to help the team over its final five games. The extended shutdown period will prevent Swoope from practicing again in 2017, but he should enter the Colts' offseason program at full health. Swoope could resurface as the top backup to Jack Doyle next season.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Kenny Moore
No Updates
Harvey Binford
News
The Colts reached an injury settlement with Binford (undisclosed) on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Binford was released by Cardinals in May before signing with the Colts in June. He was not expected to land on the final roster before getting injured.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Johnathan Hankins
News
Hankins (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Hankins was a non-participant at practice this week after playing through the injury in last Saturday's loss to the Ravens. Hassan Ridgeway and Anthony Johnson should both see increased snap counts against the Texans in Week 17.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Robert Turbin
News
Turbin, who was placed on injured reserve Oct. 20, said he's fully recovered from a dislocated left elbow, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Turbin looks like he'll be in store for a normal offseason, but despite his good health, he won't be able to play in any of the Colts' final four games or practices during that stretch after the team already exhausted both of its designated-to-return-from-IR spots. The running back will enter the second year of his two-year contract with the Colts in 2018.

Injury
Elbow - Injured Reserve
Nate Hairston
News
The Colts have listed Hairston (concussion) as active for Saturday's matchup against the Ravens.

Hairston met with an independent neurologist Thursday, and it looks like he ultimately got cleared for Saturday's game. Barring any setbacks, look for him to assume his usual responsibilities at cornerback.

Mo Alie-Cox
No Updates
Isaiah Williams
News
Williams was waived by the Colts on Saturday.

Williams was promoted to the active roster prior to Week 6, but failed to participate in any games. Assuming he clears waivers, the 24-year-old will either look for a new opportunity or land on the team's practice squad.

Kolby Listenbee
News
The Colts signed Listenbee to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Listenbee finished the season with the Colts' practice squad after previously spending eight weeks with the Dolphins' practice squad. A sixth-round pick of the Bills out of TCU in 2016, Listenbee has yet to make his NFL debut.

Al Woods
News
Woods was dealing with a knee ailment but won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Woods was a late addition to the injury report this week, but he was able to return as a full practice participant Friday. Although the 30-year-old has started at nose tackle for the Colts this season, his 18 tackles (10 solo), one sack and reduced snap count give him limited fantasy appeal.

D.J. White
News
White was claimed off waivers by the Colts on Monday.

White was waived by the Chiefs over the weekend after being a healthy scratch in every game this season. Now with the Colts, White is unlikely to operate as anything more than a reserve option at cornerback.

K.J. Brent
News
Brent was promoted from the Colts' practice squad to their active roster Saturday.

Brent was brought in as a safety measure at wide receiver, as Donte Moncrief (groin) is questionable for the contest. Brent has been with the team since signing with the practice squad Oct. 24. Prior to that he spent time with the Seahawks and Raiders.

Clayton Geathers
News
Geathers (neck) isn't listed on the Colts' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans.

Geathers was recently activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list following a long recovery from a serious neck injury. Unless he endures a setback in practice this week, look for Geathers to make his season debut Sunday against the Titans. If he's able to claim a starting role, Geathers could have some IDP upside after logging 59 tackles and a forced fumble in just nine games last season.

Barkevious Mingo
News
Mingo had eight tackles (all solo) and a sack in Saturday's loss to the Ravens.

Mingo entered December with a quiet season through 12 games, but over the past three games he's recorded 15 tackles (all solo), two sacks and forced two fumbles. The 27-year-old has a limited history of success, but a matchup against the quarterback-deficient Texans in Week 17 could make him an under-the-radar IDP streaming option for those willing to take a risk.

Chris Milton
News
Milton (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Milton didn't participate in Friday's practice and was given a questionable designation, but it appears it may have been just for cautionary measure. The second-year pro has only played seven defensive snaps all season, so don't expect much of an impact Sunday.

T.Y. Hilton
News
Hilton had three receptions for 14 yards on six targets in Sunday's win over Houston.

Hilton continued his boom-or-bust season as he had four games of 100 yards or more receiving, and eight games of 30 yards or less. He had a big decline in production without Andrew Luck as his 57 receptions and 966 yards receiving were the lowest since his rookie season in 2012. His four touchdowns were a career low. No player may get a bigger boost if Andrew Luck is able to return in 2018.

Marlon Mack
News
Mack had seven carries for 28 yards, including a one-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Houston.

The Colts stuck with Frank Gore as the primary ball carrier all season even though at age 34 he's unlikely to return next season and Mack could be the future starter. Mack had 358 yards rushing and four total touchdowns in his rookie season. He had just a 3.8 YPC, but showed explosiveness and could be poised to become the starter if Gore doesn't return.

Antonio Morrison
News
Morrison had 12 total tackles in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.

Morrison is averaging 7.3 tackles per game on the season, making him a steady source in that category in IDP leagues. He has failed to record a sack or interception, however, which has prevented him from ascending to the top tier of producers at linebacker.

Donte Moncrief
News
Moncrief's (ankle) future with the Colts is up in the air, according to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star.

Back-to-back injury-plagued seasons have derailed the 24-year-old wideout's ascent, and his modest 2017 numbers (26 catches on 45 targets for 391 yards and two TDs in 12 games) were also in part fueled by the absence of franchise QB Andrew Luck. Per the report, Moncrief -- whose rookie contract is set to expire -- would prefer to re-sign with the Colts, but GM Chris Ballard seems unlikely to be inclined to offer the wideout a lucrative extension offer. Moncrief is thus a candidate to test free agency unless he's willing to accept a "prove-it" deal to remain with the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Jack Doyle
News
Doyle had four receptions for 38 yards on five targets, including a six-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Houston.

Doyle was one of the few things working well for the Indy offense in 2017 as he finished with 80 receptions for 690 yards and four touchdowns. His production could get a boost if Andrew Luck is able to return from a shoulder injury in 2018.

Matthias Farley
News
Farley recorded 11 tackles (three solo) against the Broncos on Thursday.

The lack of solo tackles is troubling, but it was a solid performance nonetheless. Farley logged 63 of 79 defensive plays, and he is now averaging nine tackles per game over his last three matchups, making for a solid stream in most formats.

Le'Raven Clark
No Updates
Andrew Luck
News
Luck (shoulder) has returned from spending six weeks in the Netherlands working with a trainer but said he did not receive any injections or special treatment, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports. "I plan on being ready for everything, everything official, offseason, NFL schedule," Luck said. "I plan on being ready."

Luck said he was doing "rehab, strength training, soft tissue work" with a trainer in Europe and left the U.S. to focus on his rehab. He'll start throwing again next month, but he and the team have not ruled out surgery if he's still experiencing pain. Luck, who had shoulder surgery in January, hasn't thrown since being shut down in late October. He has had similar optimism over the past year, so we may not know his 2018 status until he begins throwing and participating in offseason workouts.

Injury
Shoulder - Labrum - Injured Reserve
Darrell Daniels
News
Daniels (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Tuesday.

Daniels' full session to begin Week 16 preparations offers optimism about his chances of suiting up Saturday against the Ravens, though the coaching staff would surely like to see him put in another full practice or two to feel better about his availability. The reserve tight end has missed the last four games with the hamstring issue and shouldn't be expected to play a major role in the passing game if he suits up Saturday.

Jabaal Sheard
News
Sheard had four total tackles, four QB hits and two sacks in Sunday's 20-14 win at Houston.

Sheard has provided a steady pass rush with 30 QB hurries, four QB hits and three batted passes, according to Pro Football Focus. He should continue to be a decent source of sacks.

Frank Gore
News
Gore had 24 carries for 100 yards and three receptions for 11 yards in Sunday's win over Houston. He became the fifth player in NFL history with more than 14,000 yards rushing.

He has 14,026 yards rushing in his career. Gore says he plans to play in 2018, but it seems unlikely he'll return to Indianapolis with a rebuilding team. Gore finishes the season with 961 yards rushing and four total touchdowns, but just 3.7 yards per carry.

T.J. Green
News
Green (neck) was left off of Wednesday's injury report.

Green is expected to play Sunday against the Rams. Although he is still a backup, he recorded 43 tackles last season and proved he can hold his own, so Green should still see a fair share of defensive snaps.

George Winn
News
The Colts placed Winn (undisclosed) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Winn didn't practice Monday due to an undisclosed injury. His placement on IR opens a roster spot for the addition of fellow tailback Daryl Richardson.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Joshua Perry
News
Perry was waived by the Colts on Tuesday.

Perry was waived in order to make room for Clayton Geathers on the active roster. The 23-year-old linebacker could be a target for the Colts' practice squad should he clear waivers.

Joe Haeg
No Updates
Dres Anderson
News
The Colts signed Anderson to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Anderson spent time with the Colts and Redskins practice squads in 2017, but was never promoted to the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old wideout is still awaiting his NFL debut since going undrafted out of Utah in 2015.

Kamar Aiken
News
Aiken played just seven snaps on offense and was not targeted in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Aiken missed practice time during the week due to a hamstring injury but wasn't on the injury report and it didn't appear to be a factor in his lack of playing time. Aiken has become buried on the bench due to his inability to catch the ball as he's hauled in just 14 of 38 targets.

Joey Mbu
News
The Colts signed Mbu to a contract Tuesday.

The nose tackle will assume the roster spot of wide receiver Quan Bray (undisclosed), who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. Mbu has appeared in two career NFL games, both of which came in 2015.

Grover Stewart
News
The Colts selected Stewart in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 144th overall.

Stewart dominated the competition in the Southern Conference at Albany State. He was a three-time first-teamer in the Southern Conference and has good size at 6-foot-4, 334 pounds, but Stewart will have a learning curve at the next level as he adjusts to NFL competition. Stewart is a project with upside, but some may consider him a reach even at the bottom of the fourth round.

Scott Tolzien
News
The Colts officially named Jacoby Brissett as their starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, leaving Tolzien to serve in the backup role, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

Though Brissett has been with the Colts for less than a month after being acquired from the Patriots prior to final roster cuts, Tolzien performed poorly enough as starter in the team's embarrassing loss to the Rams in Week 1 for coach Chuck Pagano to go in a different direction. If Andrew Luck's shoulder injury keeps him sidelined for the foreseeable future and Brissett fails to ignite the offense or succumbs to an injury, it's possible that Tolzien gets another look as the team's signal caller, but he's unlikely to yield promising results in that scenario. For his career, the 30-year-old Tolzien owns a mediocre 61.6 quarterback rating and a 2:9 TD:INT ratio.

Christine Michael
News
Michael was placed on injured reserve Thursday with an undisclosed injury, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Michael suffered an injury during practice Wednesday and it appears as though it was at least somewhat serious. Indianapolis signed running back Troymaine Pope to take the place of Michael on the team's current roster.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Deyshawn Bond
News
Bond (quad) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Bond suffered a torn quad muscle in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, and the injury will require surgery. With that, Bond's season likely is over, and the Colts will be down to their third center until they can get Ryan Kelly (foot) back on the field.

Injury
Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Phillip Walker
News
Walker signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.

Walker was a member of the Colts' practice squad for the entire 2017 season after being waived during final roster cuts in September. The former Temple standout likely will get the opportunity to compete for No. 2 or 3 quarterback duties if he remains on the roster through training camp this summer.

Anthony Walker
News
Walker (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Walker has only played two games so far this season, as the rookie continues to battle hamstring injuries. Should he be cleared to play Sunday, look for the linebacker to play exclusively on special teams.

Henry Anderson
News
Anderson sustained a laryngeal fracture during Sunday's win over Houston and will be placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

At this point in the season, Anderson will be unable to return by Week 17 once he undergoes surgery Friday. Oft-injured throughout his three-year career, the defensive tackle has appeared in just 29 games, accruing 65 tackles (43 solo), three sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Expect some combination of Margus Hunt and Hassan Ridgeway to cover the gap left behind by Anderson on the defensive front.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
Edwin Jackson
News
Jackson had six total tackles in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

Jackson took over as a starter at inside linebacker after several injuries and suspensions. He averaged 6.6 tackles per game over his last five games after getting more playing time and put himself in a position to contend for a starting job next season.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Tarell Basham
News
Head coach Chuck Pagano said Basham will get more chances in pass-rush situations with John Simon (shoulder) on injured reserve, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Basham hasn't played more than 19 defensive snaps this season, but it sounds like he'll surpass that number Sunday against the Bills. The rookie third-round pick has two sacks already this season, proving he's capable of taking on the challenge.

Caraun Reid
News
Reid signed a contract with the Colts on Monday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News reports.

Reid was waived by Washington at the start of December, but he may have an opportunity to finish the season with the Colts. The 26-year-old should serve as a depth option in Indianapolis' defensive-line rotation.

Josh Ferguson
News
Ferguson had three receptions for 16 yards on three targets in Sunday's 30-10 loss at Jacksonville. He also returned three kickoffs for an average of 17.3 yards.

Ferguson played 16 snaps on offense mostly late in a blowout loss. He went four games without a snap on offense, so he'll likely only get playing time in lopsided games.

Tyreek Burwell

Burwell was promoted to the Colts' active roster Thursday, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports.

Burwell was moved to the active roster after Andrew Luck (shoulder) was officially placed on injured reserve Thursday. Burwell should serve as a depth lineman and special teams contributor for the time being.

Darius Butler
News
Butler had one tackle in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Pittsburgh while playing 49 snaps at free safety.

Butler has moved into a more prominent role with Malik Hooker out for the season with a knee injury, as he's splitting playing time with T.J. Green opposite Matthias Farley. However, Butler hasn't been a prodigious tackler in his career, which limits his IDP value.

Jeremiah George
News
George (neck) was a full participant in practice Tuesday.

With the Colts playing Thursday night in their Week 15 loss to the Broncos, George wasn't able to rally from the neck injury on a short week. The additional few days off appears to be all George needed to heal up, setting him up for a return Saturday against the Ravens. Though he's seen most of his action on special teams in recent weeks, George could pick up more snaps at inside linebacker Saturday following starter Jon Bostic's (knee) recent placement on injured reserve.

Jacoby Brissett
News
Brissett was 15-of-25 passing for 114 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's win over Houston.

Brissett struggled at times with his accuracy, but otherwise put in a solid performance, albeit against one of the league's worst secondaries. Brissett showed promise in his first season as a starter but struggled at times, especially holding the ball too long (taking 52 sacks). He finishes with 3,098 yards for 13 touchdowns with seven interceptions and a 6.6 YPA. His role for 2018 is unclear as he'll likely be the backup, or traded, if Andrew Luck returns from a shoulder injury. Or he could return as Indy's starter if Luck remains injured. Either way, he likely showed enough promise to get another shot at a starting job in the NFL.

Quincy Wilson
News
Wilson (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Wilson was limited in practice throughout the week but he's expected to see his typical role in Sunday's game. Look for him to continue as one of the Colts' top backups in the secondary.

Jason Vander Laan
News
Vander Laan (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Vander Laan did not participate at practice again this week and hasn't made the necessary progress to clear the concussion protocol. The 25-year-old will finish the 2017 with zero targets in four games with Indianapolis.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
John Simon
News
Simon (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Simon suffered the shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. His season ends after nine games, in which he recorded 43 tackles (28 solo), three sacks and one interception which he returned for a touchdown. In his absence, look for Barkevious Mingo to take over starting responsibilities.

Hassan Ridgeway
News
Ridgeway (shoulder) was a full participant at Friday's practice and will play in Sunday's game against the Bills.

Ridgeway logged a pair of limited practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, but he returned to full activity on Friday as he confirmed his availability for Week 14 barring any setbacks. He's slated to provide depth at defensive end in his return from a two-game absence.

Margus Hunt
News
Hunt had seven total tackles and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's 13-7 overtime loss at Buffalo.

Hunt is getting increased playing time with Henry Anderson (neck) now on injured reserve. He played a season-high 57 snaps Sunday.

Adam Vinatieri
News
Vinatieri converted both field-goal attempts (from 54 and 22 yards) and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Houston.

Vinatieri has said he plans to play in 2018 at age 45, but he's a free agent and it's not clear if he'll return to the Colts. Vinatieri may want to play for a team with better playoff prospects. Vinatieri showed he can still kick from long range as he made five of six field-goal attempts from 50 yards or more in 2017.

Brandon Williams
News
Williams (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Williams suffered the concussion in last Thursday night's game against the Broncos and was eventually admitted to the local hospital. To no surprise, the Colts will exercise caution with the tight end and shut him down for the rest of the season. Williams was primarily used on special teams in 2017.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Pierre Desir
News
Desir is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a shoulder injury.

The Colts secondary was already shorthanded with Rashaan Melvin (hand) inactive Sunday, but will now likely be without the two starting cornerbacks. Nate Hairston and Kenny Moore should see significantly increased snap counts with Desir unlikely to return against the Jaguars.

Injury
Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Mark Glowinski
News
The Colts claimed Glowinski off waivers from the Seahawks on Monday.

Glowinski will provide the Colts with another depth option along the interior of the offensive line with starting center Ryan Kelly (concussion) landing on injured reserve. A fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2015, Glowinski is capable of playing both guard spots and made 10 appearances (two starts) with Seattle this season before being dropped from the 53-man roster.

Ronald Martin
News
The Colts promoted Martin from their practice squad to the active roster Friday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Martin will fill the open roster spot created by the placement of tight end Brandon Williams (concussion) on injured reserve. Martin will likely be a depth option in the secondary while seeing time on special teams.

Krishawn Hogan
News
The Colts placed Hogan (knee) on injured reserve Monday.

Hogan tore his ACL in Sunday's victory over the 49ers. The 22-year-old was elevated from the practice squad prior to Week 4 in order to provide depth at wide receiver. He failed to record a reception during his stint with the club.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Arthur Miley
News
Miley signed with the Panthers on Tuesday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Miley was released by the Panthers before the 2016 season, and now he's returning. He's not going to be competing for a starting job, but an excellent camp could make him a viable backup end.

Luke Rhodes

Denzel Rice
News
Rice (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Texans on Friday.

The severity of the injury hasn't been specified, so it's unknown if Rice is likely to have an opportunity with another team.

Andreas Knappe
No Updates
Denzelle Good
News
Good (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Good didn't participate at practice this week after sitting out last Saturday's loss to the Ravens. Joe Haeg should continue in his stead at right tackle, with Le'Raven Clark filling in at right guard.
