Indianapolis Colts trying out QB Chad Kelly at rookie camp

Sports
May 3 (UPI) -- The Indianapolis Colts invited former Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly to rookie minicamp. Indianapolis is having rookie camp from Friday through Sunday. Kelly was at the camp Friday on a tryout basis. Kelly -- the nephew of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly -- was a seventh-round pick by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft. He didn't take a snap during his rookie campaign, but had a successful 2018 preseason. Kelly completed 66.7 percent of his throws for 466 yards, three scores and two touchdowns in four preseason appearances. He appeared in one regular season game last year for the Broncos, taking a knee for a one-yard loss. The Broncos released Kelly after he was arrested for trespassing in October. The 25-year-old completed 63.9 percent of his throws for 6,858 yards, 50 tou...

Oct. 13 (UPI) -- The Indianapolis Colts have elevated defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster. Indianapolis announced the move on Saturday.

Texans claim first win in overtime over Colts

Texans claim first win in overtime over Colts

Sports
INDIANAPOLIS -- At the end of a wildly entertaining, exhausting overtime test of endurance, Indianapolis Colts first-year head coach Frank Reich wasn't about to settle for a tie. Even when facing fourth-and-4 at his own 43 with just 27 seconds remaining, Reich didn't hesitate. He went for it. And didn't second-guess himself when it backfired. In a game where Andrew Luck set franchise records for passing, his final fateful throw was too low and bounced incomplete. The Houston Texans completed a 24-yard pass to DeAndre Hopkins and spiked the ball to stop the clock, which precipitated Ka'imi Fairbairn kicking a 37-yard field goal with one second remaining in overtime for a stunning 37-34 road victory on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. "We're not playing to tie," Reich said. "We're going for ...

Rookie wide receiver Deon Cain of the Indianapolis Colts will miss the 2018 season because of a torn ACL sustained during Thursday night's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. Colts head coach Frank Reich made the announcement on Friday afternoon. The 6-foot-2, 202-pound Cain was a sixth-round pick (185th overall) by the Colts out of Clemson and was expected to make a contribution this season after impressing during training camp. The 22-year-old Cain, whose draft stock slipped because of off-the-field issues, was injured after making the first catch of his initial professional game. Cain was suspended by Clemson for the 2015 Orange Bowl and the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game for failing a drug test. In the 2016-17 season, Cain returned and played...
