Colts signed S Delano Howell off the Bills’ practice squad.Strong safety Tom Zbikowski left last week’s win over the Bills with a shin injury. If he can’t go this week, Howell can step in as depth and help on special teams. He’s an undrafted rookie out of Stanford.
Howell competed in both football and track & field at Stanford University where he wore number 26 on the field. In track & field he owned Stanford’s best mark of 2011 in the long jump at 23-8 3/4.
In his final year at Stanford, Howell missed three games due to a hand injury, but was still able to win the Jack Huston Award for “the player who best exemplifies aggressiveness, exceptional performance and unheralded efforts”
