The Indianapolis Colts today elevated outside linebacker Daniel Adongo to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and waived running back Josh Robinson.
Adongo, 6-5, 252 pounds, has spent the entire season on the team’s practice squad a year after being on the Colts Injured Reserve list in 2014. In 2013, he spent the first 12 games of the season on the Colts practice squad before being signed to the active roster and playing in two games. Prior to joining the Colts, he played for the Southern Kings of Super 15 Rugby, the highest level of pro rugby in the world. He also played in the 2012 Varsity Cup for the University of Pretoria Tuks.
He graduated from Strathmore High School (Nairobi, Kenya) in 2006 and attended the University of South Africa the following year. Adongo also attended the Sharks Academy, a rugby academy accredited by South African Rugby, and made his senior debut in the 2010 Vodacom Cup. In addition, he played for the Kenya Harlequins junior team before going on to play for Kenya’s U-18 and U-19 national teams.
Robinson, 5-8, 221 pounds, has played in five games for the Colts in 2015 and totaled 17 carries for 39 yards and six receptions for 33 yards. He was selected by the team in the sixth round (205th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.
