The Colts released the following players; safety Ibraheim Campbell, safety Sean Davis, offensive lineman Will Holden, quarterback Brett Hundley and offensive lineman Joey Hunt.
The Colts waived/injured the following players; tight ends Jordan Thomas and Andrew Vollert. If Thomas and Vollert pass through waivers unclaimed then they will go to the Colts injured reserve list.
The Colts also placed defensive end Dayo Odeyingbo on Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. Odeyingbo is ineligible to practice or play in games for the first six weeks of the regular season. After six weeks, Odeyingbo can begin practicing but cannot be moved to the active roster until after the Colts have played the first eight games of the season. When ODeyingbo starts practicing, a three-week window begins in which he can be moved to the active roster. If Odeyingbo does not get activated after the three-week window ends, he must remain on the reserve/NFI list for the rest of the season.
