Yesterday the Indianapolis Colts cut ten players and then signed running back Stevan Ridley, getting their roster down to 81 players. They need to cut down to 75 players by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m., and so this morning they cut four more guys to get down to 77.
The Colts this morning released tight end Konrad Reuland and waived wide receiver Danny Anthrop, offensive tackle Keith Lumpkin, and running back Trey Williams.
Once again, there aren’t really any surprises among this group of cuts. Once again, all it takes is looking at how much the guys are (or in this case, aren’t) playing and you’d probably have a good idea of most of the players cut during the first round of cuts.
Probably the most notable name among these four players is Trey Williams, who many were impressed with this preseason. He rushed eight times for ten yards and caught three passes for 32 yards and two touchdowns, but again - he didn’t play a ton and was with the third team when he did get in the game. He was clearly low on the depth chart, so with the signing of Stevan Ridley yesterday it made one of the other running backs expendable.
The Colts now have just two more cuts to make by Tuesday afternoon in order to get down to the 75 player limit. Final roster cuts down to 53 players are then due by Saturday at 4:00 p.m.
