The Indianapolis Colts announced that they’ve signed veteran TE Ryan Hewitt to a contract and placed second-round DL Tyquan Lewis on injured reserve Monday
The Colts’ practice squad now consists of:
- TE Mo Alie-Cox
- WR Steve Ishmael
- WR Reece Fountain
- QB Phillip Walker
- CB D.J. White
- G Jamil Douglas
- DE Carroll Phillips

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that Lewis is expected to miss nine weeks with a foot injury.
Lewis, 23, was selected by the Colts in round two of this year’s draft after they traded up to get him. He receives a four-year, contract worth $4,366,054, which includes a $1,255,312 signing bonus.
