9/5/20 Colts moves to get to final 53 man roster

Recommended Posts

Saturday is cut down day in the NFL, and Sunday will be the day that waiver claims are made and practice squad signings are done. 

There had been talk that the NFL increased roster size but I believe that there has been some confusion about that. The teams are still going to have a 53 man roster (48 active players on game day as opposed to 46 last year) BUT on game days they can call up 1 or 2 players from the practice squad for the day. That player reverts back to the practice squad without being subject to waivers. A player from the practice squad can only be called up this way twice during the league year. This explains the increased practice squad size from 10 to 14


WR Artavis Scott 

OT Brandon Hitner

S Donald Rutledge 

CB Tremon Smith 

CB Andre Chachere

TE Andrew Vollert

CB Travis Reed

DL Kameron Cline 

TE Dominique Dafney



This pretty much means they aren’t planning on adding him the the practice squad. Doesn’t mean he might not be an emergency pick up down the line but in the short term he isn’t in the plans

Just added a bunch to the original post, Joel A Erickson is doing one tweet per cut which would be ridiculous to post in here. 

He did mention that the Football Team from Washington cut former Colts TE Hale Hentges which is an interesting possibility for a waiver claim.

They just showed some Army players who had tiny mikes on them in practice yesterday......One of the Army player was heard to scream out (and he was very very happy as he screamed it out )>>>>>"2020 Football Season is Here !!!!! " .

Colts also waived OL Carter O’Donnell and Jake Eldrenkamp and 6th round DP DT Robert Windsor 

Colts beat reporter Stephan Holder announced this in his twitter account 30 minutes ago. Colts fans comments attached to Holders tweet do not seem happy about this .

cuts of note 

QB Chad Kelly

WR Marcus Johnson (Dezmon Pattmon makes the roster)

C/G Javon Patterson 

TE Farrod Green 


TE Xavier Grimble

C Joey Hunt


DE Kemoko Turay 


Eason makes roster as 3rd QB

Doyle, Alie-Cox and Burton are the only TEs. Burton needed to remain on active roster to be moved to IR/return tomorrow. So either the Colts make a waiver claim for Travis or Hentges or resign Grimble or Green tomorrow

6 WR made roster Hilton, Pittman, Campbell, Pascal, Dulin and Pattmon 

I think only 7 OL made the final 53: starters and Clark and Pinter
