The Indianapolis Colts today elevated cornerback Christopher Milton to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and placed defensive end Kendall Langford on the Injured Reserve list.
Milton, 5-11, 190 pounds, was originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent on May 2. He was waived at the conclusion of training camp and signed to the team’s practice squad where he spent the first nine games of the season. Milton played in 53 collegiate games (33 starts) at Georgia Tech and collected 96 tackles (82 solo), 3.0 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, 14 passes defensed and five interceptions (two returned for touchdowns). He also contributed with seven blocked kicks. As a redshirt senior in 2015, Milton started all 12 games and tallied 28 tackles (27 solo), one interception, six passes defensed and two blocked kicks. He was the FBS active career leader in blocked kicks during the 2015 season.
Langford, 6-6, 305 pounds, started the first seven games of the 2016 season and posted 11 tackles (eight solo), two passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He had a streak of 135 consecutive games played, which was the longest among active NFL defensive linemen before it ended on October 30. In Langford’s nine-year career, he has played in 135 games (113 starts) and compiled 369 tackles (240 solo), 22.5 sacks, 20 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He was signed by the Colts as a free agent on March 10, 2015.
