The Colts have started their journey to a 75-man roster on Monday morning by parting ways with 11 players.

As is often the case in the first round of cuts, the Colts haven’t made any surprising moves. The players let go were all long shots for roster spots when they joined the team and failed to change that outlook over the course of training camp.

The Colts waived cornerback Johnny Adams, cornerback Qua Cox (pictured), guard Andre Cureton, guard Marcus Hall, cornerback Kameron Jackson, wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson, linebacker Jonathon Sharpe, safety David Sims, wide receiver Eric Thomas, wide receiver Tony Washington and fullback Cameron White.

Indianapolis is now down to 79 players, leaving them with four more moves to make to set their roster by Tuesdays deadline.
