According to The MMQB’s Albert Breer, the Indianapolis Colts tried out a trio of offensive tackles on Monday for potential additional roster depth including: Christian DiLauro, Antonio Garcia, and Casey Tucker:

The 6’6”, 300 pound offensive tackle was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns out of Illinois. Since then, he has spent time with the San Francisco 49ers (2018-19), Houston Texans (2019), and Pittsburgh Steelers (2019-20) organizations.
The former 2017 3rd round pick of the New England Patriots was a member of the Colts practice squad and offseason roster previously from 2018-19 but also has been with the New York Jets (2018) and Miami Dolphins (2019) organizations. He was suspended the first 4 games of the 2019 season for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy.
The former undrafted free agent from Arizona State was initially a member of the Detroit Lions practice squad (2019) before spending time with the Philadelphia Eagles organization (2020). At 6’6”, 315 pounds, Tucker also has projected as an offensive guard at the NFL level.
Of course, the Colts are significantly depleted at offensive tackle with starting left bookend Anthony Castonzo expected to miss at least a few more weeks, and his primary backup Le’Raven Clark recently lost to a season-ending torn Achilles.
Down to third-string blindside protector Chaz Green on the left side, the Colts only have developmental rookie practice squad offensive tackle Carter O’Donnell as their sole remaining in-house depth—which very well means Indianapolis will have to bring in an outside reinforcement or two at offensive tackle this week.
