The Indianapolis Colts continued their roster shuffling today by making a relatively minor roster move.  They brought back defensive end Gannon Conway and waived offensive tackle Eric Pike.

Conway played in 30 career games (14 starts) at Arizona State, making 51 tackles (9 for loss), 5.5 sacks, and 2 passes defended.  He was named an Honorable Mention All-Pac 12 after an impressive and career best senior season in 2013.  He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Miami Dolphins but was waived just days later.  When Colts defensive end Fili Moala tore his ACL in offseason work and would therefore miss the season, the Colts signed Conway on June 11.  They waived him on July 16, but they've now brought him back.  He's a long shot to make the roster, but he'll get an opportunity to play in the last few days of training camp and in the preseason.

Pike was initially signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent before being waived just a few days later.  Then, when Donald Thomas went down in training camp with a season-ending injury, the Colts brought Pike back.  Now, they've released him.  Pike was a four-year starter at Towson and was a team captain and an FCS All-American during his senior season.

This is a minor roster move unlikely to shake anything up.  Conway is likely a guy just around for camp and preseason, and Pike was the same thing only along the offensive line.  Of course, with the injury to Jeris Pendleton, there might be a spot open along the defensive line for Conway to take, but it's very much an uphill climb for him.
