Colts Reach Roster Max

The Colts reached the 53-man limit on Saturday by cutting a number of players, including running back Charcandrick West. West, who has been toggled on and off of the Chiefs’ roster in recent years, hooked on with the Colts less than two weeks ago. Despite the season-ending injury suffered by D’Onta Foreman, he wasn’t able to make the final cut.

Also among the cuts – J’Marcus Webb, one of the club’s Week 1 starting tackles in 2018. Webb’s season was mostly lost to injury, and he’ll have to hook on elsewhere for 2019.

Here’s the rest of the Colts’ moves:

Colts’ Antonio Garcia Suspended By NFL

Colts tackle Antonio Garcia has been suspended for the first four games of season for a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to a team announcement. The ban will cost Garcia a month’s worth of game checks and may cost him his spot on the team.

The former Patriots third-round pick has yet to find his footing in the NFL. He missed all of 2017 on the NFI list after being diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs and lost 40 pounds while sidelined. The Jets claimed him off waivers in May of 2018, but he missed the club’s final cut. The Colts added him to the practice squad before Halloween 2018 and gave him an extended look with a reserve/future deal in January.

Garcia is still looking to make his true NFL debut, but it won’t happen any sooner than October.

Colts Sign Nine To Reserve/Futures Contracts, Including CB Jalen Collins

After being eliminated from the playoffs, the Colts have made a handful of moves with an eye toward 2019. They signed nine players to reserve/futures contracts today, the team announced on Twitter. These deals will go into effect on the first day of the 2019 league year, with players joining the team’s offseason 90-man roster:

The most notable name of the bunch is cornerback Jalen Collins. Collins was a highly regarded 2015 second round pick of the Falcons, but his career flamed out due to a series of off-field issues that led to four suspensions. He was released by the Falcons in late 2017, and signed to the Colts’ practice squad this past November. If he can get everything sorted out, it could prove to be a great pickup for Indianapolis. Walker is the former Temple quarterback who has been on Indy’s practice squad the past couple of seasons.
