Moala can now practice with the team and may be available to play in the Colts' third preseason game. The Colts do not need to make a roster adjustment as Moala was already counted as part of their 90-man roster. Rosters are cutdown to 75 on August 27th.
The fifth-year defensive lineman is battling with Drake Nevis, Ricardo Mathews, Lawrence Guy, and Kellen Heard for one of the remaining spots in Chuck Pagano's 3-4 defense. Moala was drafting by the previous front office regime to play defensive tackle, but at USC he was used more as a defensive end and in Pagano's scheme Moala looked passable last season.
Moala was re-signed in March to a one-year deal. He was a second round pick for the Colts in 2009 and has 40 career tackles and two sacks.
