Colts promote Da'Rick Rogers

The Indianapolis Colts have promoted rookie wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers from the practice squad to the active roster and signed wide receiver Josh Lenz to the practice squad.

The team waived-injured safety Larry Asante. If Asante clears waivers, he will revert to injured reserve.

Rogers was originally signed to the Colts practice squad in September.

In three collegiate seasons, he posted 139 receptions for 2,100 yards and 21 touchdowns in 36 games played. Rogers played two seasons at the University of Tennessee before transferring to Tennessee Tech for one year (2012). As a sophomore in 2011, Rogers earned Associated Press First Team All-SEC honors after leading the conference with 67 receptions for 1,040 yards and ranking second with nine receiving touchdowns.

Asante was signed by the Colts on Oct. 4 and appeared in five games this season. For his career, he has totaled 12 tackles (nine solo), one interception and one forced fumble in 17 games played.
