Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard has brought in another player from his former team to the Colts. Ross Travis, a tight end who was signed to the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad in 2015 as an undrafted free agent, has played 17 games in his career. In that time, he’s caught 8 passes for 58 yards, with a majority of those catches coming this season. Travis was waived on Monday and immediately scooped up by the Colts.

The team also announced that they released wide receiver Matt Hazel from the active roster. The 25-year-old had played three games with the team this year, and has caught 1 pass for 1 yard before being released.
In addition to the moves with the active roster, the team also added centerAnthony Fabiano to the practice squad, likely as a result of starting center Ryan Kelly leaving last week’s game against the Tennessee Titans. The team had cited this information of Fabiano on their news article.
Fabiano, 6-1, 303 pounds, has spent time on the practice squads of the New England Patriots, New York Giants and Washington Redskins this season. As a rookie in 2016, he spent time on the Cleveland Browns’ active roster and practice squad. Fabiano originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent on May 6, 2016.
