INDIANAPOLIS – The Daniel Adongo experiment is getting another shot on the Colts 53-man roster.
On Thursday afternoon, the Colts elevated the former rugby star to their active roster.
Adongo's last game action in the NFL came in 2013 when, after 12 weeks on the team's practice squad, he played two games on the active roster before suffering a season-ending hamstring injury.
The 2014 season for Adongo ended in the preseason when a biceps injury last August sent him to injured reserve.
With Adongo's addition, the Colts have added even more depth to an already deep outside linebacker group. It remains to be seen if the 6-4, 252-pound Adongo can slide inside to help the Colts interior depth up front. Adongo has played around 270-280 pounds in prior seasons.
To make room for Adongo, the Colts waived running back Josh Robinson. The 2015 sixth-round pick battled some early fumble problems in his rookie season and has been inactive for the past four weeks.
Zurlon Tipton has been the team's third running back (behind Frank Gore and Ahmad Bradshaw), playing strictly on special teams.
