The Indianapolis Colts today signed cornerback Eric Patterson to the practice squad and released guard David Arkin from the practice squad.
Patterson, 5-10, 193 pounds, was waived by the Colts on September 22, 2015 after being elevated to the team’s 53-man roster on September 18, 2015 from the practice squad. He saw action against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 2 and recorded two tackles. Collegiately, Patterson saw action in 41 games (28 starts) at Ball State and finished with 189 tackles (135 solo), 27 passes defensed and six interceptions.
Arkin, 6-5, 310 pounds, was signed to the team’s practice squad on September 18, 2015. He has played in one regular season game and three postseason contests with the Colts and Miami Dolphins. In 2014, Arkin spent the majority of the season on the Colts practice squad before being signed to the active roster and competing in all three of Indianapolis’ postseason games on special teams and in tackle-eligible situations. He was originally selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round (110th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft and spent time on the Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks practice squads.
