Robert Myers Reportedly Added to Colts Practice Squad


According to the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson, the Indianapolis Colts have brought back rookie offensive guard Robert Myers, only this time to the team’s practice squad:

As a 5th round pick of the Ravens this year out of Tennessee State, the Colts had previously added Myers to their active roster on September 6th, only to release him this past Saturday, September 15, to make room for recently acquired ex-Browns defensive lineman Billy Winn.

The 6’5″, 326 pound Myers is a big bodied guard, who could be worth a developmental stash for the team, as he played well in this past January’s Senior Bowl and has some potential (via his Draft Profile):

"BOTTOM LINEMyers is already above average from a technical standpoint and is a quick processor when the game speeds up. Myers is a guard prospect who can pull and play in a power scheme. He has the pass protection traits of an NFL starter. The ceiling is higher for Myers than many guard prospects in this draft, and with more coaching and work in the weight room, he should be an NFL starter."

It’s worth noting that the Colts aren’t exactly deep along the interior offensive line either, where veteran Lance Louis is currently one of the starters at guard and reserve Hugh Thornton was inactive last week as he presumably is still battling a knee injury.

It’s not clear yet who the Colts have released from their practice squad in a corresponding move to make room for Myers.

However, if the latter impresses, there’s a strong chance he could be promoted later to the active roster as the season progresses.
