INDIANAPOLIS. Ind. (21 Alive) - Norwell alum and Colts third string quarterback Chandler Harnish was not resigned to the Colts practice squad on Sunday, where he had spent the last two seasons.

The Colts today signed nine players to the practice squad: T-Tyler Hoover, ILB-Andrew Jackson, WR-Ryan Lankford, WR-Josh Lenz, S-Dewey McDonald, DT-Nnamdi Obukwelu, CB-Sheldon Price, TE-Erik Swoope and G-Josh Walker. The team also agreed to sign QB-Jeff Mathews to the practice squad instead of Harnish.

Harnish was among 17 players released by the Colts on Saturday.

Also waived were DE-Gannon Conway, RB-David Fluellen, DE-Tyler Hoover, OLB-Phillip Hunt, ILB-Andrew Jackson, WR-Ryan Lankford, WR-Josh Lenz, C-FN Lutz, S-Dewey McDonald, DT-Nnamdi Obukwelu, CB-Sheldon Price, ILB-Rob Ruggiero, TE-Weslye Saunders, ILB-Kelvin Sheppard, TE-Erik Swoope and G-Josh Walker.

The team released NT-Brandon McKinney, waived-injured T-Matt Hall and S-Delano Howell and placed OLB-Robert Mathis on the Reserve/Suspended by Commissioner list. If Hall and Howell clear waivers, they will revert to the team’s Injured Reserve list.

The Colts also traded CB-Marcus Burley to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a sixth-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.

With the moves today, the Colts have reached the league-mandated 53-man roster.
