The Indianapolis Colts today signed inside linebacker Andrew Jackson to the active roster from the practice squad and waived-injured inside linebacker Mario Harvey. If Harvey clears waivers, he will revert to the team’s Injured Reserve list.
Jackson was selected by the Colts in the sixth round (203rd overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft and was signed to the practice squad on September 1, 2014. At Western Kentucky, he registered 326 tackles (174 solo), 6.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, four passes defensed, one fumble recovery and one interception in 37 games played (33 starts). Jackson became the 10th player in school history to record at least 300 tackles, as his total ranked 14th among active NCAA Football Subdivision players. He competed in the 2014 East-West Shrine Game and earned All-Sun Belt Conference first-team honors in two consecutive seasons (2011-12).
Harvey played in 28 career games with the Colts (2012-14) and recorded 15 tackles (13 solo) and 16 special teams stops. In three games this season, he posted one special teams tackle, spending time at both the fullback and inside linebacker positions. Harvey was originally signed by the Colts to a reserve/future contract on January 20, 2012.
