We already knew that QB Josh Betts and WR Sam Giguere were on the practice squad, but now we know 4 others, and one will most definitely please Colts fans.
S Jamie Silva, RB Chad Simpson, OT Michael Toudouze, and OG Tala Esera were all signed to the practice squad. Jamie Silva looked like a potential starter this preseason, so it is vital that we retained him. He originally made the 53 man roster but was later cut to make room for Daniel Muir and Buster Davis. Simpson is not a surprise as he is the only running back who was on the 80 man roster that was practice squad eligible. Toudouze and Esera both can become players who can make the 53 man roster in the future.
I would assume that a defensive lineman and a linebacker will take up the last two spots, so DT Colin Ferrell and LB Kyle Shotwell may be the most likely players. Ferrell should have made the roster, so we need to keep him as he could become a star in the future. Shotwell was the best linebacker to not make the roster, and he is practice squad eligible. He’s a fairly safe bet to make the practice squad.
