The Colts are expected to sign center/guard Josh Andrews off the Eagles’ practice squad, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (on Twitter). Starter Ryan Kelly is likely to miss time with a knee injury suffered on Sunday, so Andrews will provide them with depth in the interim.
Kelly went down in the fourth quarter of the Colts’ 38-10 win over the Titans on Sunday. It’s especially unfortunate since Kelly may be in the midst of his best season to date. The former first-round pick ranks as Pro Football Focus’ No. 8 center in the NFL and has started in all ten of the Colts’ games so far. Meanwhile, the 5-5 Colts kept their playoff hopes alive with the win over the Titans and have a chance at the postseason if they finish strong over the final six games.
Andrews, 27, entered the league as a UDFA with the Colts in 2014. He has 16 games of experience between 2015 and 2016, but has not seen live action in the last two years.
