The Colts have made a practice squad move early this morning, re-signing safety Rolan Milligan to their practice squad and releasing quarterback Phillip Walker.

If you paid attention to roster moves last year, you remember that Walker bounced on and off of the practice squad all season long, and it seems like he may be set to repeat that in the 2019 season. Walker did not have an inspiring preseason or camp, so whether he will have the ability to keep coming back is certainly in question.
Milligan, the 5’10” 200lb UDFA safety out of Toledo, is clearly a player the Colts like, having spent time on both the practice squad and active roster last season. He now has another shot to prove himself and develop on the practice squad in hopes of working his way onto the 53-man roster.
This likely will not be the last we see of the Colts churning through players on the practice squad. They have done this quite a bit during the Chris Ballard era, and his staff uses the practice squad to the fullest. Hopefully for Phillip Walker’s sake, he doesn’t have to be the primary recipient of that churn this season.
