The Indianapolis Colts today made some moves to their practice squad, signing cornerback Tay Glover-Wright and safety Lee Hightower while releasing defensive lineman Kelcy Quarles and guard Adam Redmond.
The moves shouldn’t really surprise people, as the team added two defensive backs to the practice squad, joining cornerbacks Frankie Williams and Christopher Milton on the ten-man unit. The Colts now have four defensive backs on the practice squad that they are working with, which is a very smart idea since their active roster is very injured right now. Working with these guys on the practice squad will help them be ready in case the Colts need to add depth at either cornerback or safety.
Glover-Wright was with the Colts in the offseason and training camp and actually saw extensive action in the preseason due to some of the injuries, but he was waived as a part of final roster cuts. He also spent time on the team’s practice squad for a few weeks last year and played in two games for the Colts last year was well. In 2014, he was with the Green Bay Packers on their practice squad.
Hightower was also with the Colts this year in training camp and played some in the preseason, and he was one of the initial members signed to the team’s practice squad before he was subsequently waived. He was an undrafted free agent out of Houston this offseason.
