Colts cut QB Kelly from practice squad

The Indianapolis Colts released quarterback Chad Kelly from the practice squad on Wednesday.

A seventh-round selection by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft, Kelly has appeared in just one NFL game. The nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, the 26-year-old was better known for his off-field transgressions, which included an arrest on criminal trespassing charges and subsequent two-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

The Colts signed veteran Philip Rivers in the offseason, and Jacoby Brissett is his backup. The Colts also used a fourth-round draft pick this spring on Jacob Eason.

The Colts replaced Kelly on the practice squad with wide receiver Krishawn Hogan.

Hogan, 25, has played in 10 games with the Colts (2017) and New Orleans Saints (2019), catching one pass for four yards.
