Indianapolis Colts release Marshay Green

The Indianapolis Colts made a minor move in their defensive backfield by waiving cornerback Marshay Green and picking up fellow corner Teddy Williams from the practice squad. Green came to the Colts 53-man roster the same way that Williams has, as he was picked up from the practice squad at the end of last month.

The move doesn’t change too much in the secondary, because the Indianapolis Colts will still only have four cornerbacks available against Tom Brady and the top-notch New England Patriots passing attack. Darius Butler and Cassius Vaughn are the two starters with Jerraud Powers out for the year and Vontae Davis ruled out for the game, so the Pats- Brandon Lloyd in particular- should have a great showing against the Colts.

Williams is a 6’3″, 200 pound CB from UTSA, and the former WR brings size to the table as the Colts No. 4 corner for the upcoming Week 11 showdown. Viewed as a project player, the Dallas Cowboys tried to develop him at the wide receiver position before finally releasing him this offseason after converting him to the defensive side of the ball during the spring.

Marshay Green is a 26-year-old who has bounced from team-to-team as either depth at corner or an option on returns. He used to be a good kick returner while playing in college for the Mississippi Rebels, but he has less upside than Williams and was, thus, expendable.
