Colts Elevate OLB Daniel Adongo; Waive RB Josh Robinson


The Indianapolis Colts made some small moves Thursday afternoon. The team waived rookie running back Josh Robinson while elevating outside linebacker Daniel Adongo to the active roster.

Robinson was a sixth round pick out of Mississippi State in April. In five games, Robinson had just 17 attempts for 39 yards, a 2.3 per carry average. He also had six receptions for 33 yards. Robinson was credited with one fumble, but ball security was an issue in the preseason. He had been inactive for the past three games.

Adongo has been with the Colts in some form since 2013. He is a former rugby star from Kenya. He was on the practice squad for 12 games in 2013 before being activated for two games late in the year. In 2014, Adongo was placed on IR with a hamstring and hip injury. He’s since dealt with hamstring issues that have landed him on the injury report multiple times.

Adongo had been on the practice squad all season and while he’s been a project to develop, there is potential as a pass rusher in the young player provided he can stay healthy.

The move drops the Colts to just three running backs with Frank Gore, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Zurlon Tipton left at the position. The Colts also have six active outside linebackers, but Adongo will likely only see snaps on special teams.

Neither move seems indicative of any other injuries or issues with the roster, merely shuffling out a player who hasn’t added anything to the roster for one who might.

The Colts are currently off for the week and no new injury news is great news.
