The Indianapolis Colts announced Wednesday that they’ve placed S Mike Mitchell on injured reserve and promoted Rolan Milligan to their active roster.
- The Colts also signed DE Anthony Winbush to their practice squad.
Mitchell, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Raiders back in 2009. After four years in Oakland and a brief stint with the Panthers, Mitchell signed a five-year, $25 million contract with $5.75 million guaranteed with the Steelers back in 2014.
Unfortunately, the Steelers released him back last March and it took until October for him to catch on with the Colts.
In 2018, Mitchell appeared in eight games for the Colts and recorded 28 tackles, one interception, two forced fumbles and a pass defense.
Milligan, 24, wound up signing with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2016. He was, unfortunately, waived with an injury designation a few months later and later reverted to the team’s injured reserve list.
The Cowboys elected to waive him with an injury settlement. Milligan signed on with the Lions during the offseason but was waived coming out of the preseason
Milligan was on and off of the Lions’ practice squad before the Colts later added him to their taxi squad in October. He was recently promoted him to the Colts active roster only to be cut loose soon after.
During his one year at Toledo, Milligan record 34 tackles, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, three pass defenses, and three forced fumbles.
