Former Bears fourth-round pick guard Josh Beekman was among eight players waived by the Colts on Sunday.
The full list as decided on by multiple Polians: tackle Casey Bender, wide receiver Joe Horn (not that one), running back Devin Moore, safety Chip Vaughn and quarterback Mike Hartline. The team also waived/injured linebacker Cody Glenn and defensive back Mike Newton.
Vaughn used to play for the Saint, while Glenn was a solid special teamer for the Colts last year.
All teams need to get down to an 80-man roster by Tuesday. The expanded rosters will help teams get through the fourth preseason game on Thursday.
We’ll be curious to see how much Kerry Collins plays for Indianapolis in order to get ready for a potential Week One start.
