Colts Promote OT Tyreek Burwell To Active Roster

The Indianapolis Colts announced Thursday that they’ve promoted OT Tyreek Burwell to their active roster.

Burwell takes the roster spot of Andrew Luck, who was placed on injured reserve today. This is also an indication that LT Anthony Castonzo could miss Week 9’s game.

Burwell, 25, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati back in 2015. He was waived a week into the regular season and later added to their practice squad before eventually being promoted to the Chargers’ active roster.

The Chargers elected to waive him with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list before he was eventually waived with an injury settlement.

The Colts signed him to their practice squad a week later.

In 2016, Burwell was active for five games.
