Colts waived NT Josh Chapman.

The writing was on the wall after Champman played deep into the fourth preseason game. Chapman opened training camp as the favorite for the starting nose tackle job, but he lost the job to rookie David Parry.

Josh Chapman is expected to get the first crack at the Colts' starting nose tackle job.

Last year's starter, Aubrayo Franklin, is a free agent and isn't expected to be re-signed. Chapman was the nation's premier run defender in 2011 at Alabama before tearing his ACL and meniscus in his left knee. He played just 306 snaps last season but has a clear path to a starting job this summer. Chapman will be flanked by Arthur Jones, Cory Redding, and Ricky Jean-Francois.

Colts NT Josh Chapman has been deemed "completely healthy" after missing his rookie year with a torn left ACL and meniscus.

"I'm full go. I'm 100 percent," said Chapman, referring to his status for OTAs. "I'll be right out there with them." Chapman wound up a "redshirt" player in 2012. He'll enter 2013 with a good chance to start at nose tackle in Chuck Pagano's 3-4 defense, upgrading on Antonio Johnson. Chapman was arguably the premier pure run stopper in college football two seasons ago. He's already been nicknamed "Thug in the Trenches, TNT" by veteran Robert Mathis.

Colts NT Josh Chapman (knee) is expected to be ready to participate in OTAs.

Chapman tore his ACL and meniscus as a senior at Alabama, but he somehow played through the injuries for the final eight games that season. The Colts kept him out for his entire rookie year, so he should be more than ready. He and Brandon McKinney will likely battle for the starting nose tackle job.

Colts placed NT Josh Chapman (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Interim coach Bruce Arians said the rookie fifth-rounder was making progress in his return from ACL surgery, but the Colts apparently don't believe the knee is ready to contribute. A street free agent will have to be signed to add depth with Fili Moala out for the season. Chapman should contribute as a run-plugger in 2013.

Colts placed NT Josh Chapman and G/T Justin Anderson on reserve/PUP.

A fifth-round rookie out of Alabama, Chapman almost certainly would have been a second-day selection if not for the fact that he was coming off a torn ACL. Rather than rush him back, the Colts will give Chapman another full month and a half to heal. He will be eligible to rejoin the roster after six games. A seventh-round pick out of Georgia, Anderson will likely be shuttled to the practice squad once he comes off the PUP list.

Colts fifth-round NT Josh Chapman (ACL surgery) said he's "right on schedule."

Chapman went under the knife in January. "I'm getting my strength back," he said. "I'm getting back to myself and feeling pretty good." If healthy, Chapman will be competing with Antonio Johnson and Brandon McKinney for snaps at nose tackle in the Colts' new 3-4 scheme.
Wed, Jun 27, 2012 10:57:00 AM

Colts signed fifth-round NT Josh Chapman to a four-year contract.

Chapman's biggest rookie-year obstacle is recovery from a torn ACL and meniscus. When healthy, he is an immovable fire hydrant at 6-foot-1 and 316 pounds. The Colts believe Chapman will be medically cleared before training camp. If so, he'll compete with Brandon McKinney and Antonio Johnson for snaps inside.
Wed, May 16, 2012 06:23:00 PM

The Colts expect fifth-round NT Josh Chapman (ACL, meniscus surgery) to be cleared for football practice by mid-June or July.

In other words, the Colts' medical team anticipates Chapman participating in training camp after reconstructive knee surgery in January. Chapman will contend for nose tackle snaps with Antonio Johnson and Brandon McKinney. Chapman is the most gifted option, and the job should be his once he's healthy.
Sun, Apr 29, 2012 01:20:00 PM

Colts selected Alabama NT Josh Chapman with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

It's the first pick of the fifth round, and Indy just stole its nose tackle of the future. Chapman goes 6-foot-1, 316, and Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris deemed him the NCAA's premier run defender on 2011 game tape. Impossible to move with incredible toughness, Chapman anchored Alabama's run defense while playing the final eight games through a torn left ACL and meniscus. He may be eased back slowly in training camp, but figures to be a major contributor and possible starter no later than the 2013 season.
Sat, Apr 28, 2012 02:03:00 PM

The agent for Alabama NT Josh Chapman (ACL surgery) promises that his client will be ready for the start of training camp.

Chapman underwent surgery to repair his left ACL and meniscus in January after playing through the injury for the final eight games of his senior year. Agent predictions can't be taken at face value, but there are no indications that Chapman has suffered any setbacks. He projects as a middle-round pick.
Fri, Apr 13, 2012 02:39:00 PM

Alabama NT Josh Chapman played the final eight games of his senior season with a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee.

"Dr. (Lyle) Cain said he's never seen a guy that can have a torn ACL and still stay that stable," explained Chapman. The 2011 second-team All-SEC pick and Senior Bowl invitee finally underwent reconstructive surgery on Tuesday and will probably begin his rookie career on the PUP list. Chapman still intends to do the bench press at the Combine and interview with teams. Pre-injury, Chapman was projected to be a third- or fourth-round pick.
