Colts Practice Squad and Roster Moves

The Colts signed just five players to their practice squad, including a few surprises.

The Colts signed five players to their practice squad, including two players who had been let go in the first round of cuts. They also released two players to make room for the signing of former Titans LB Rocky Calmus and former Cowboys LB Keith O'Neill.

Quarterback Tom Arth, who has worked behind the scenes for the Colts for the past two seasons, finally gets his well-deserved opportunity to work with the team as their third-string quarterback. The John Carroll University star has been learning the offense, breaking down film and assisting Peyton Manning while awaiting his opportunity to show his talent in the NFL.

Wide receiver Montiese Culton and defensive back Brandon Lynch were the most surprising additions to the practice squad since they were both cut in the first round, not this past weekend's final cuts.

WR John Standeford and G Trevor Hutton were not huge surprises as both of them developed nicely through the Colts practice squad last year. Hutton also played in NFL Europe this offseason along with Arth.

To make room for the addition of two new linebackers, the Colts trimmed defensive tackles Jason Stewart and recently-signed Lynn McGruder. However, since the Colts still have room for three more players on the practice squad, it's likely that they will both land there as long as they clear waivers.
