Colts pick their first 53


The Colts have announced the 53 men who will make up their roster as of 9 p.m. ET.

There’s probably a good chance that some of those men will not be on the roster as of 9 p.m. ET on Saturday or Sunday night. The Colts hold the top waiver position in the entire league through Week Three and that makes it very likely that they will be grabbing anyone they like from the waiver wire in the next few days and weeks.

To get down to 53 players, the Colts waived wide receiver Jeremy Ross, running back Darren Evans, tight end Andre Smith, tackle Mike Tepper, center Zane Taylor, tackle Steven Baker, defensive tackle Jason Shirley, linebacker Greg Lloyd, tight end Kyle Miller, guard Hayworth Hicks, linebacker Jerry Brown,  safety Latarrius Thomas, defensive tackle Chigbo Anunoby, wide receiver Kashif Moore and long snapper Justin Snow. They waived-injured running back Deji Karim, defensive end James Aiono, linebacker Tim Fugger, cornerback Brandon King and safety Mike Newton. Fugger was a seventh-round pick in April and is the only one of the 10 Colts draft picks to get cut.

The Colts also placed wide receiver Jabin Sambrano and cornerback Korey Lindsey (pictured) on injured reserve and released tackle George Foster from IR on Friday.
