Tight Andre Smith was claimed off waivers from Chicago by the Colts, who also waived cornerback Mike Holmes.
Signed as an undrafted rookie out of Virginia Tech in June 2011, Smith spent the first eight games on the Bears' practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster but did not appear in any games.
Holmes was signed to the Colts' practice squad on Oct. 12 and then to the active roster Dec. 6, but was never on the game-day active roster.
