INDIANAPOLIS — It's time to go to work.

The Indianapolis Colts today announced they have waived 23 players, waived six players with an injury designation, and released five veterans to shrink from their 90-man preseason roster to their initial 53-man roster. Also, quarterback Chad Kelly was officially placed on the Reserve/Suspended list.

So while lots can change on every NFL team's roster between now and their Week 1 matchups — the waiver claim period for those released today expires at noon tomorrow, while practice squads can be formed an hour later — let's take a look at who initially made the cut at each position for the Colts heading into the 2019 regular season (UPDATED to reflect moves made Sept. 1-2):
