The Indianapolis Colts had until Tuesday afternoon to hit their NFL roster cuts and get down to the 80-man roster limit but they went ahead and made those cuts early. The Colts had eight players to release and reports have listed all eight of those players including RB Devin Moore, S Chip Vaughn, G Josh Beekman, OT Casey Bender, WR Joe Horn, QB Mike Hartline, LB Cody Glenn and DB Mike Newton.
One semi-surprise in these cuts is Indy native, RB Devin Moore, writes SB Nation's Stampede Blue.
Devin Moore was a guy I had high hopes for, especially as a return guy, but something must have happened between the end of training camp and last Friday's game, as he didn't get on the field at all. During camp, he seemed to be the first guy out there each time.
The Colts next round of cuts will come on Sept. 3 when teams need to get down to 53 players. Of course, the player most in Indy care about is the health of QB Peyton Manning.
Stampede Blue has the full run down on all the players released.
