Minor NFL Transactions: 8/10/16

Here are today’s minor moves.

  • A sixth-round Colts pick in 2015, linebacker Amarlo Herrera could not stick on Indianapolis’ roster long.

Toure will revert to the Colts’ IR if unclaimed. Drafted out of Georgia, Herrera played in three games for the Colts last season. The move to cut Herrera served as a football-0nly move despite it coming before Indianapolis’ preseason debut, per Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star (on Twitter).
