Colts AM Update: Roster Moves and Injury Info

The Colts made some roster moves this morning, signing safety Ashante Williams and linebacker Shawn Loiseau and waiving wide receiver Roderick Rumble and waived-injured offensive lineman Justin Anderson. Chuck Pagano also provided some injury updates this morning.


We've got some roster moves from camp this morning.  The Colts signed safety Ashante Williams and linebacker Shawn Loiseau, and to make room for them they waived wide receiver Roderick Rumble and waived-injured offensive lineman Justin Anderson.

Williams is a rookie safety out of the University of Illinois who the Colts had in for a workout not too long ago.  He has had some off the field troubles, but seems to have turned his life around, thanks in large part to the fact that he is a father.  For more on his story, check out this article from before the draft.

Loiseau was originally signed by the Houston Texans after the 2012 draft as an undrafted free agent out of Merrimac College but was cut before the regular season began.  He spent time on the Colts practice squad last season.

Rumble was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Idaho State this offseason by the Colts.  Anderson was drafted in the seventh round of last year's draft, but opened the season on the PUP and was waived after coming off of it.  He was then signed to the Colts practice squad, and was shortly thereafter placed on the practice squad injured reserve.  Chuck Pagano said at this morning's presser that Anderson has a significant pec injury that will likely require surgery and likely will end his season.  If he clears waivers, he will revert to the team's IR.

Ashante Williams likely will need to play on Sunday, as the team is running low on safeties who can play in the game against the Bills.  Good news, however, is that Pagano said that LaRon Landry is likely to play - but, of course, it won't be long because he is a starter.  Pagano also said that Josh Gordy and Darius Butler spent some time at safety during OTAs, so that's something to potentially watch for Sunday - I'd guess especially Gordy.

Injury Notes:

  • Offensive linemen Khaled Holmes and Hugh Thornton were out of their boots for this morning's walkthrough.  Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was walking through with the first team offense.
  • Tight end Dwayne Allen sat out of this morning's walkthrough with what Chuck Pagano described as a sore foot.  After Tuesday night's practice it started bothering him and he got treatment yesterday.
  • Pagano said that linebacker Jerrell Freeman is still on the mend but that Joe Reitz is ready to go when asked about those two players.
  • Safety Joe Lefeged has a slight calf strain and is in a precautionary boot.
  • LaRon Landry, as mentioned earlier, could be ready to go for Sunday's game, per Pagano.
