The Indianapolis Colts are doing what eventually had to be done.
By Tuesday afternoon, all teams in the NFL have to be trimmed down to 75 players. The Colts aren’t at 75 just yet, but they have made cuts to come close. At press time of this article, the Colts have cut their roster down to 78 players.
Indianapolis waived CB-Johnny Adams, CB-Allen Chapman, G-Danous Estenor, DT-Kellen Heard, P/K-Brandon McManus, RB-Davin Meggett, LB-C.O. Prime, C-Rick Schmeig and S-Ashante Williams. WR-Maurice Williams was waived with an injury settlement and CB-Teddy Williams was waived-injured. The team also placed OLB-Lawrence Sidbury on injured reserve.
The roster size will go to 75 on Tuesday, then be finalized next week, with the final 53-man squad.
