The Indianapolis Colts today elevated cornerback Teddy Williams from the practice squad to the active roster and waived cornerback Marshay Green.
Williams, 6-1, 201 pounds, was signed to the Colts practice squad on October 30, 2012. He was originally signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Texas-San Antonio on July 29, 2010. He was waived on September 4 before being signed to the practice squad a day later. Williams switched positions to wide receiver midway through the season and was elevated to the active roster on December 21, 2010. He was inactive for the final two games. Williams then spent the entire 2011 season on the Cowboys practice squad before being waived on August 31, 2012.
At UTSA, Williams did not play college football, but was a standout on the track and field team. He was the school’s only four-time All-America selection and helped lead the Roadrunners to six Southland Conference Championships (four indoor/two outdoor) from 2007-10. Williams claimed nine Southland titles (five indoor/four outdoor), was twice named the league’s Indoor Athlete of the Year (2009-10) as well as Outdoor Outstanding Track Performer (2009-10). He also established UTSA records in the 55m (6.23 seconds), 60m (Southland-best 6.59), 100m (9.90), 200m (20.60) and 400m relay (39.59).
Williams’ 9.90-second 100-meter time was the fastest in the world during his junior season.
Green, 5-10, 175 pounds, was originally signed to the Colts practice squad on October 1, 2012 and was elevated to the active roster on October 29. He appeared in one game this season, making three solo tackles.
