ColtPower has learned that the Indianapolis Colts have added former Colts
offensive lineman Trevor Hutton to the roster. Hutton, who was in training camp
this summer with Atlanta, was released as the Falcons trimmed their roster to 75
earlier this week. Since he already knows the Colts offense, Hutton was a smart
addition for this week's game against the Bengals since the Colts plan to keep
most of their starters off the field to avoid a late preseason injury to key
Originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Utah State back in 2004, Hutton was on the team's practice squad most of his rookie year until he was promoted to the active roster in mid-November. He spent the balance of the season with the team and then did a tour of duty in NFL Europe with the Hamburg Sea Devils in 2005. He was again signed to the team's practice squad last September, but was released about a week later.
In other roster news, center Albert Bimper has been waived. The undrafted rookie out of Colorado State suffered a high ankle sprain against the Saints last Sunday, but had done some solid work in reserve duty throughout the preseason. Another offensive lineman, Mike Johnson, who missed training camp due to an non-football injury he incurred this spring while assigned to NFL Europe, has been put on the team's reserve/non-football injury list.
