Colts promoted RB/KR Kerwynn Williams from their practice squad.

He'll be No. 3 on the tailback depth chart, behind Ahmad Bradshaw and Donald Brown with Vick Ballard sent to injured reserve. Though undersized at 5-foot-8, 195, Williams has terrific long speed and receiving ability. He lacks re-draft value, but is worth a roster spot in deep Dynasty leagues.

Colts signed RB/KR Kerwynn Williams to their practice squad.

He'll be on speed dial in case Ahmad Bradshaw, Vick Ballard, or Donald Brown gets hurt. Williams was the 230th overall pick in April's draft. He rushed 41 times for 169 yards (4.1 YPC) and had three receptions in the Colts' preseason.

Colts waived RB/KR Kerwynn Williams.

It's a surprising move, although Williams didn't have an overwhelmingly positive or buzz-worthy preseason. He goes to make room for ex-Titans TE Jack Doyle. Williams was the Colts' seventh-round draft pick this past April.

The Colts are expected to use rookie RB Kerwynn Williams on kick returns.

The special teams value gives Williams -- the 230rd overall pick -- an inside track on a roster spot. If the Colts sign Ahmad Bradshaw, either Donald Brown or Delone Carter will be let go. Williams was also a terrific receiver at Utah State and could be a third-down weapon in time if he learns to pass protect.

Colts agreed to terms with No. 230 overall pick RB Kerwynn Williams on a four-year contract.

Williams averaged 6.94 YPC on 218 carries at Utah State as a senior, his first year as a starter. He's a bit undersized at 5-foot-8 and 195 pounds, but he posted an impressive 4.48 forty at the Combine with a 1.52 ten-yard split. Williams is lightly penciled in as the fourth-string running back in a Colts' backfield lacking talent, so he could see meaningful snaps as a rookie.

Colts selected Utah State RB Kerwynn Williams with the No. 230 overall pick.

Williams (5-foot-8 1/8, 195) emerged from 2012 draft picks Robert Turbin and Michael Smith's shadow to rip off 1,512 yards and 15 touchdowns on 218 carries (6.94 YPC) in 2012. He added 45 catches for 697 yards (15.5 YPR) and five more scores. Williams' versatility is attractive, but he's more of an undersized straight-line speedster, albeit with absolutely blazing wheels. He ranked fourth among running backs at the Combine in both forty time (4.48) and the ten-yard split (1.52). In a best-case scenario, Williams would be groomed to take a larger role in 2014 when Donald Brown is a free agent.
