The Indianapolis Colts today announced that tackle Xavier Nixon will return to practice with the team. He will remain on Injured Reserve/Designated for Return during this time.
The Colts have up to three weeks from today to elevate Nixon to the 53-man active roster or he will remain on Injured Reserve for the remainder of the season. He is not eligible to play until the team’s Week 9 game against the New York Giants on November 3.
Nixon was placed on Injured Reserve/Designated for Return on September 3, 2014. He was first signed by the Colts from the Washington Redskins practice squad on September 24, 2013. Nixon played in four games for the Colts in the 2013 regular season, making one start at left guard in a Week 16 victory at Kansas City. He also saw action in both postseason contests. Nixon was originally signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Florida on May 2, 2013.
