The Indianapolis Colts waived wide receiver Kris Adams today. The move was made just under 24 hours from kickoff for their home match-up with the Green Bay Packers. Adams has appeared in all three games this season, but never made the impact they were hoping for.
In the three games, Adams only made two receptions for 26 yards. He made some big plays in practice and training camp as the coaches thought that would translate to the games, but never did. The move leaves the Colts with five active receivers on the roster for tomorrow as Reggie Wayne, Donnie Avery, T.Y. Hilton, LaVon Brazill and newly acquired Nathan Palmer will look for time in the offense.
Palmer was brought in to replace the void from Austin Collie‘s season ending injury suffered in the last game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He looked to get his time tomorrow on special teams, but now he may find the field on offense too.
With the open roster spot, the Colts moved offensive tackle Tony Hills from the practice squad to the active roster. Hills, is a big 6-5, 304 pound lineman. He’s in his fifth season in the NFL as he’s previously spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos.
Hills was signed to the Colts practice squad a few weeks ago on Sept. 18. He could also see some action tomorrow as the Colts’ offensive line is pretty banged up. He last saw game action in four games for the Steelers in 2010 and didn’t get any action last year as a part of the Broncos.
