Former Hoosier Courtney Roby was cut today as part of a group of personnel moves by the Indianapolis Colts. Here’s the information the team’s Web site has about the roster moves:
“The Colts on Thursday also continued to hone the roster, releasing veteran defensive tackle Ed Johnson and veteran wide receiver Courtney Roby and signing veteran defensive tackle LaJuan Ramsey and rookie running back Justin Forsett.
Ramsey (6-feet-3, 300 pounds), originally a sixth-round selection in the 2006 NFL Draft by Philadelphia, played two seasons with the Eagles, playing in 15 games and recording 18 tackles â€“ nine each in 2006 and 2007. He played collegiately at the University of Southern California.
He spent training camp and preseason with the San Francisco 49ers before his recent release.
Forsett, a seventh-round selection by the Seahawks in the 2008 NFL Draft, led the Seahawks in rushing during the preseason with 248 yards and a touchdown on 46 carries. He also returned nine punts for a 6.6-yard average and six kickoffs for a 23.5-yard average.
Roby returned five kickoffs for a 20.2-yard average against Chicago this past Sunday.
Forsett, waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday, started 18 of 49 games at California, ranking third in school history with 3,220 yards rushing and fourth in rushing touchdowns with 26. He started 13 games and was a first-team All-Pac 10 selection as senior, rushing for 1,546 yards and 15 touchdowns on a school record with 305 carries.”
