On Wednesday, ColtPower and our Clemson affiliate at Scout.com, CUTigers, reported that the Colts had re-signed former Clemson wide receiver Roscoe Crosby and added him to the practice squad.
Today, we've learned that undrafted wide receiver Montiese Culton is the player who was bumped from the practice squad to make room for Crosby. The Colts are reporting the Culton was placed on the reserved/injured list with a foot injury.
Crosby recently drew interest from both Carolina and Green Bay and had tryouts with both teams. The Colts are reportedly interested in sending Crosby to NFL Europe next spring as one of their allocated players, so the sudden interest by other teams may have spurred their decision to add him to the practice squad to increase the odds of holding on to him for the balance of the season. Up until Tuesday's move, any other team could have added him to their practice squad.
Now that Crosby is on the Colts' practice squad, the only way Indianapolis can lose him is if another team is willing to put him on their 53-man roster.
Crosby could develop into a returns specialist and provide depth at wide receiver with some additional experience. With this move, the Colts have increased the likelihood that he'll gain that experience as a member of their organization.
