The Colts have signed safety Delano Howell to complete the 53-man active roster.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts today signed safety Delano Howell from the Buffalo Bills practice squad to the Colts active roster and announced that guard Seth Olsen will return to practice. Olsen will remain on Injured Reserve during this time.

 

The Colts will have up to three weeks from today to elevate Olsen to the 53-man active roster or he will remain on Injured Reserve for the rest of the season.

He was originally signed by the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford on April 30, 2012. He was waived on October 13 and signed back to the active roster on October 15. Howell was then waived on November 9 and signed to the practice squad on November 12.

 

At Stanford, Howell started 33-of-43 games played and finished with 242 tackles (174 solo), seven interceptions and 19 passes defensed. As a senior in 2011, he was a First Team All-Pac-12 Conference selection after finishing with 52 tackles, four passes defensed, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble.
