The Indianapolis Colts signed nose tackle Antonio Dixon and promoted linebacker Jerry Brown and defensive end Clifton Geathers from the practice squad to the active roster today.
The team also waived cornerback Justin King.
Dixon’s and Geathers’ signings is an indication that defensive end Fili Moala (knee sprain) and nose tackle Martin Tevaseu (foot) are likely to miss some time. Both were injured Sunday, when the Colts beat the Green Bay Packers.
Dixon (6-3, 322) appeared in 35 career games with 10 starts with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Colts also signed linebacker D.J. Bryant, cornerback Isaiah Green, fullback Robert Hughes and tight end Dominique Jones to the practice squad. The team released running back Alvester Alexander from the practice squad and linebacker Mario Addison was signed off the practice squad to the Washington Redskins active roster.
