On Saturday, NFL teams were required to cut down their squads to a league mandated 53-man initial active roster respectively.
It was a tough day for NFL teams where a lot of equally tough cuts had to be made.
With that being said, there were a number of former Indianapolis Colts who hit the league waiver wire from other NFL teams—in addition to the Horseshoe’s own difficult roster cuts:
- WR Rodney Adams, Chicago Bears
- OC/OG Josh Andrews, New York Jets
- OT Jackson Barton, Kansas City Chiefs
- OG Evan Boehm, Buffalo Bills
- WR Deon Cain, Pittsburgh Steelers
- S Matthias Farley, New York Jets
- DB T.J. Green, Carolina Panthers
- CB Nate Hairston, New York Jets
- OC Jonotthan Harrison, New York Jets
- TE Hale Hentges, Washington Football Team
- WR Krishawn Hogan, Tennessee Titans
- DL Margus Hunt, New Orleans Saints
- DT T.Y. McGill, Philadelphia Eagles
- CB Chris Milton, Tennessee Titans
- WR Donte Moncrief, New York Jets
- WR Chester Rogers, Miami Dolphins
- OC A.Q. Shipley, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- RB Jonathan Williams, Detroit Lions

So, they have no backup center at the moment.
The Giants claimed OT Jackson Barton and DB Adrian Colbert from the Chiefs and WR Damion Ratley from the Browns off waivers.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) September 6, 2020
So with David Mayo and Xavier McKinney likely headed to IR Giants will have to make one cut from initial 53.
My biggest Bills surprise who made the 53: LB Del'Shawn Phillips— Sal Capaccio (@SalSports) September 5, 2020
My biggest surprise cut: OL Evan Boehm
(not counting Roberts or Marlowe who will re-sign)
Ray Ray McCloud made it over Switzer. Deon Cain also cut.— Sean Gentille (@seangentille) September 5, 2020
Other notable Jets cuts: TE Daniel Brown, S Matthias Farley— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 5, 2020
The #Panthers are cutting DB T.J. Green, per source.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 5, 2020
Don't know if this is out there, but Washington released TE Hale Hentges, per source.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 5, 2020
The #Titans have released WR Krishawn Hogan, sources said.— Justin M (@JustinM_NFL) September 5, 2020
The Saints are releasing veteran DL Margus Hunt, per source -- though it could just be a temporary move.— Mike Triplett (@MikeTriplett) September 5, 2020
#Eagles cut 5 more: DB Michael Jacquet, DE Matt Leo, TE Caleb Wilson, DT T.Y. McGill, DB Trevor Williams.— Martin Frank (@Mfranknfl) September 4, 2020
Among the surprise cuts for the #Titans: D'Andre Walker, Chris Milton, Trevor Siemian, Tye Smith.— TURRON DAVENPORT (@TDavenport_NFL) September 5, 2020
Remember, this 53-man roster is only for now. Sunday is typically a big day for claims. That may be different this year due to the pandemic.
We have released WR Chester Rogers.— Miami Dolphins (@MiamiDolphins) September 2, 2020
To get to 53-player cutdown, Bucs are releasing center A.Q. Shipley, who joined the team this week. Makes sense they could re-sign him in next 24 hours.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) September 5, 2020
