The move is confirmation the Vikings expect Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) to start in Week 6. Harnish was replaced on the roster by second-year FB Zach Line.

Vikings promoted QB Chandler Harnish from the practice squad.

WR Rodney Smith was waived in a corresponding roster move. Harnish's promotion is a tell-tale sign that Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) will sit out Thursday's game against the Packers.

Colts waived/released QB Chandler Harnish, DE Gannon Conway, RB David Fluellen, DE Tyler Hoover, OLB Phillip Hunt, ILB Andrew Jackson, WR Ryan Lankford, WR Josh Lenz, C FN Lutz, S Dewey McDonald, DT Nnamdi Obukwelu, CB Sheldon Price, ILB Rob Ruggiero, TE Weslye Saunders, TE Erik Swoope, OG Josh Walker and NT Brandon McKinney.

The No. 253 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Harnish has never attempted a regular-season pass. Fluellen is a candidate for the practice squad, and could eventually reach the 53-man roster considering the state of the Colts' running back corps.

Colts signed QB Chandler Harnish, OG Zach Allen, C Thomas Austin, LB Alan Baxter, CB Marcus Burley and TE Martell Webb to reserve/future contracts.

The "Mr. Irrelevant" of the 2012 draft, Harnish was released at final cuts last August. He'll be a long-shot to crack the 53-man roster in 2014. Austin appeared in one game for the Colts this season.

Colts waived or released QB Chandler Harnish, LB Daniel Adongo, S Larry Asante, C Thomas Austin, CB Marshay Green, DE Lawrence Guy, FB Robert Hughes, OT Ben Ijalana, TE Dominique Jones, WR Jeremy Kelley, DT Drake Nevis, CB Sheldon Price, WR Jabin Sambrano, WR Lanear Sampson, LB Monte Simmons, OT Bradley Sowell and NT Martin Tevaseu.

Harnish has never appeared in an NFL game. The No. 49 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Ijalana was waived/injured last summer, spending 2012 on injured reserve. He's shaping up as a massive bust. The No. 87 pick in 2011, Nevis has made just 14 career appearances. The Colts are purging former GM Bill Polian's mistakes.

Colts waived QB Chandler Harnish.

This year's "Mr. Irrelevant" as the last player picked in the draft, Harnish had yet to appear in a game. He was more than respectable in preseason action, completing 27-of-47 passes (57.4 percent) for 406 yards (8.6 YPA) and a 91.3 passer rating. Harnish will be a practice squad candidate if he clears waivers.

Colts rookie QB Chandler Harnish is out 2-3 weeks with a "knee issue."

It sounds like a scope. Harnish, the 2012 Mr. Irrelevant, is battling Trevor Vittatoe for third-string duties behind Andrew Luck and Drew Stanton. The Colts may keep only two quarterbacks unless Harnish or Vittatoe jumps off the page.
Wed, May 16, 2012 01:10:00 PM

Colts selected Northern Illinois QB Chandler Harnish with the No. 253 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Meet the new "Mr. Irrelevant." A four-year starter and the MAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2011, Harnish completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 2,942 yards and a 26:5 TD-to-INT ratio. Highly athletic and smart with a strong arm, Harnish has the legit potential to emerge as Andrew Luck's long-term backup in Indy.
