The Indianapolis Colts finished their roster moves Monday to get down the league mandated limit of 75 players. The team placed Griff Whalen, George Foster and Brandon McKinney on the reserved injured list. Under new NFL rules, these players could possibly return later in the year if their health permits.
Rookies Justin Anderson and Josh Chapman were placed on the reserve physically unable to perform list meaning they cannot play or practice for the first six weeks of the season.
These moves accompany the Colts waiving 11 players on Sunday. Among those cut were several players who played significantly in 2011. Safety David Caldwell cornerbacks Chris Rucker and Terrance Johnson all saw considerable time in the Colts' secondary last season.
Vontae Davis also arrived at the Colts facility today and will wear number 23.

Andrew Luck has one more chance to get things right before the games count.
The rookie quarterback has looked good in the Colts' first three preseason games, though Saturday afternoon's loss at Washington was clearly the toughest.
Against the Redskins, Luck had to contend with a bevy of blitzes, breakdowns along the offensive line and penalties that led to stalled drives...
Vontae Davis couldn't wait to get started in Indianapolis.

Joe was on ESPN's "First Take" to promote the new Madden 13 game when the round table discussion inevitably came around to co-host Skip Bayless asking the four-time Super Bowl winner which rookie he would pick to have more long-term success as an NFL quarterback — Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.
Montana tried to dodge the question before a nagging Bayless said...
The Indianapolis Colts acquired former 1st round corner back Vontae Davis from the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
I, like nearly everyone else, has been predicting that the Colts would make a move via trade to help shore up their secondary. This maybe wasn’t quite the move we had been expecting however.
The biggest thing Colts fans have to wonder: Is this the major upgrade the secondary...
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has once again filled us in with a very vague assessment of the “trade winds” that have been blowing in Indy.
On Sunday morning Irsay posted the tweet below.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano expects Austin Collie to be healthy for week 1. Collie suffered his 4th concussion in 21 months last week, but it was as minor as they come and he should be cleared before week 1. On a thin receiving corps, Austin Collie has great upside in fantasy leagues. Other than him, the Colts’ only other receivers who aren’t...
The best thing about preseason NFL football is the fact that it signifies that regular season football is only a couple weeks away. It’s where the starters go through the motions for a couple weeks and the back-ups earn roster spots. The play-calling is very vanilla and games are sometimes tough to watch in the second half. A couple times a year there’s a preseason match-up that...
When Colts' owner Jim Irsay tweeted that "TRADE WINDS (are) BLOWING!!!" earlier this week, it wasn't too big of a surprise. Irsay often appears to a monthly quota of semi-incomprehensible tweets to fill, and he had spent a good deal of time mostly out of the spotlight. It was about time for Irsay to grab some headlines.
Far more surprising was the actual trade...
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts may have plugged their biggest hole on defense by trading two undisclosed draft picks to Miami for cornerback Vontae Davis. The Dolphins confirmed the move Sunday afternoon. The move ends a weekend full of speculation. Team owner Jim Irsay started the discussion Thursday night when he posted several messages on Twitter indicating the Colts were...
Colts’ owner Jim Irsay said on twitter recently that the team was going to make a big move, and they did just that by trading for Dolphins’ corner back Vontae Davis.
Davis had fallen out of favor with the Dolphins, and was acquired by the Colts for the price of a second round pick and a conditional sixth rounder.
The Colts badly needed to shore up their defense, and if Davis...
The news came out today that the Washington Redskins have released long time and former Pro-Bowl tight end Chris Cooley. I think that Cooley would be an amazing addition to the team, and I’ll detail why here in a moment.
One thing that makes any situation like this easier is that the Colts have the first crack at any player placed on waivers thanks to their 2-14 record in 2011...
