The Indianapolis Colts have continued to make moves to bolster their offense since losing tight end Dwayne Allen to season-ending hip surgery. It all started yesterday when the team sent a 2014 first-round pick to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for running back Trent Richardson.

In the latest move, the team has decided to promote wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster.

Rogers is a very talented receiver that fell out of the draft primarily because of character issues. After the draft, he signed with the Buffalo Bills where he impressed the coaching staff before the learning curve became too much.

After going unclaimed on waivers following his release, the Colts scooped him up.

Rogers will likely not contribute immediately for the team, but without Allen they will be using more three wide receiver sets. Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey are the top three wideouts, but Rogers could challenge for some reps as the team’s fourth receiver.

One thing is for sure: the Colts are committed to winning.
