    Colts fill the empty roster spot with a TE.

    INDIANAPOLIS COLTS MAKE ROSTER MOVES
    Posted by coltsindianapolis on October 29, 2013 – 6:38 pm

    The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent tight end Weslye Saunders to the active roster and tackle Xavier Nixon to the practice squad. The team also waived cornerback Daxton Swanson from Injured Reserve.

    Saunders, 6-5, 261 pounds, has played in 27 career games (10 starts), catching six passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. He was originally signed by the Colts as a free agent on October 16, 2012 and appeared in 11 games (four starts) last year, recording two catches for 15 yards. Saunders was waived by the Colts on July 25, 2013.

    Nixon was originally signed to the Colts active roster off the Washington Redskins practice squad on September 24, 2013. He was inactive for all four games before being waived on October 28. He was originally signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent on May 2 and was waived on August 31. Nixon was then signed to the team’s practice squad the following day.

    Swanson was signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent on April 30, 2013 and was waived-injured on August 31. He graduated Sam Houston State as the school’s all-time leader in interceptions with 14 and ranks second in all-time interception return yardage (228).

    I thought it would be Dominique Jones.

    Now wait a minute. The Colts waived Saunders after he was suspended for 8 games. Has he served that suspension? Do the 8 weeks of the season played so far count as 8 games of the suspension, even though he wasn't on a roster? I guess it must.

    The move comes three months after the Colts (5-2) waived Saunders after he was suspended eight games by the league for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. He has six career receptions for 44 yards and one touchdown in 27 career games. Last season with Indy, Saunders caught two passes for 15 yards.

    I would argue that San Diego was possibly overlooked.
    I can agree there. I highly doubt the coaching staff or the vets overlooked, but yes some of the players probably did

    Many things went wrong in that game. Inability to catch the ball, bogus playcalling and a whale for a Linebacker hilariously trying to cover TEs or catch a running back.

    I just can't wait for this game. It feels like the Colts haven't played in a month. It will be sad seeing the team take the field without Reggie though. That's when his absence will become a reality.

    If Luck can keep this team winning without his HOF security blanket, which I think he will, then it will further add to his young impressive legend.

    This game scares me. One thing I will say is we beat a better Texans team last year at home and I think we played better in Houston than the scoreboard indicated. It's very difficult to win on the road in prime time as the Colts found out in San Diego, and even Denver found out in Indy. I think both the Chargers game and Broncos game were both great learning experiences and I think we'll start fast tomorrow night.

    The Colts struggled to move the ball with Reggie Wayne and now they go on the road to face a desperate divisional foe on national TV that has the best defense in the league.

    The Colts will be lucky to score 14 points.

    Sure Houston's defense gives up the fewest yards, but they are far from the best defense in the league. They give up nearly 28ppg. Take away the pick 6's and its like 24ppg, which still isn't good. Houston's defense is just given a really short field a lot, so they have less yards to give up.

    The Colts have a few good things going for them:

    Andrew Luck, he's pretty good.

    Robert Mathis, he's also pretty good.

    Also, the team from Houston isn't called the Chargers.
