Colts bring back Mitchell Van Dyk, waive-injured Isiah Cage

NFL: Preseason-Pittsburgh Steelers at Buffalo Bills Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts today made a minor roster move, signing offensive tackle Mitchell Van Dyk and waiving-injured guard Isiah Cage. If Cage clears waivers, he will revert to the Colts' injured reserve list.

Van Dyk was originally signed by the Colts earlier this year on April 20 as a free agent, though he was waived a few weeks later on May 2 to make room for undrafted free agents. He was originally drafted out of Portland State in 2014 by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round, though he didn't make the roster that year after being a part of the team in training camp and preseason. In 2015, he spent the entire year on the Pittsburgh Steelers' IR after he was waived-injured following the preseason. The Colts bringing him back adds depth along the offensive line and is another move geared toward finding as much talent as possible up front for competition in camp.

Cage was one of those players signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent earlier this year. He played collegiately at Wisconsin-Eau Claire (a Division III school), where he playing in 27 games and started 24. He was a three-time All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honoree during his time there. Unfortunately for him, he suffered some sort of injury this offseason that has resulted in him being waived-injured and he almost certainly will revert to the team's IR, joining tight end Mike McFarland on that list so far this year.
