Filling out its practice squad, the Indianapolis Colts signed six players on Sunday, Sept. 1 that the team waived prior to the Saturday, Aug. 31 NFL deadline to bring rosters down to the 53-player limit.
Among the most notable players brought back by the Colts were quarterback Chandler Harnish and linebacker Daniel Adongo.
Harnish was the team's final pick and held the title "Mr. Irrelevant" for the 2012 NFL Draft and was its third-string QB last season.
Adongo, a former rugby player from Africa, was originally signed by the Colts on July 25. Although not playing a snap during the preseason, he has been praised by head coach Chuck Pagano for his work ethic and ability to pick up the game, which he is playing for the first time in his life.
Also signed to the practice squad were center Thomas Austin, tight end Dominique Jones, linebacker Josh McNary and cornerback Sheldon Price.
The team also signed tight end Jack Doyle off waivers from the Tennessee Titans, and released running back Kerwynn Williams to make room on the team's roster for him.
At 6-feet, 6-inches, 258 pounds, he was originally signed by Tennessee as an undrafted free agent in May following the 2013 NFL Draft out of Western Kentucky University, and is a local Indianapolis product, attending Cathedral High School. Doyle, 23, finished his career at WKU as the school's second all-leading receiver and a First Team All-Sun Belt Conference player.
Williams was drafted by the Colts in the seventh-round this season, and appeared to be a bubble player that had a good chance of making the final roster after the team traded Delone Carter to the Baltimore Ravens. Williams carried the ball 41 times for 169 yards and made three receptions for six yards during the 2013 preseason.
