Morris initially signed with the Colts in early September after he was one of the New York Jets final 53-man roster cuts.
The 26 year old cornerback appeared in 6 games (1 start) with the Colts earlier this season, recording 16 tackles and a pass defensed.
However, the 5’10”, 188 pound cornerback was waived by the Colts in mid-October until he was re-signed to the team on Wednesday.
Originally signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2013, Morris has also spent time with the Houston Texans and New York Jets organizations.
The 4-year veteran has appeared in 42 career games (2 starts), recording 51 tackles, 8 passes defensed, and an interception.
The cornerback he’s effectively replacing, Williams, was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Purdue.
The 5’9″, 190 pound cornerback had previously spent time on both the Colts practice squad and active roster earlier this season–having spent the entire offseason with Indianapolis, appearing in 3 games and recording a tackle.
It’s worth noting that the Colts may need the additional cornerback depth, as starting cornerback Vontae Davis has yet to practice all week with an ankle injury and was previously seen in a walking boot.
The secondary faces a prolific Pittsburgh Steelers passing attack led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
