Colts elevate WR Keke Coutee, K Chase McLaughlin to active roster

·1 min read

The Indianapolis Colts elevated wide receiver Keke Coutee and kicker Chase McLaughlin from the practice squad to the active roster, the team announced Saturday.

As both Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce were ruled out for the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Coutee should have a role on special teams. It’s likely that Mike Strachan and Dezmon Patmon also see bigger roles with the injuries in the room.

McLaughlin was signed to the practice squad this week when the Colts waived Rodrigo Blankenship. He battled with Lucas Havrisik, who also was signed to the practice squad this week.
