Colts Sign Veteran Offensive Tackle

The Indianapolis Colts offense has been off to a rough start through five weeks, and they made a move Tuesday afternoon to try and boost their struggling offensive line. Joel A. Erickson of IndyStar announced the team is signing offensive lineman Ty Nsekhe to their practice squad. The Colts offensive line has been a mess so far this season, allowing a league-high 21 sacks and averaging 3.6 yards per rushing attempt. They also faced an injury to center Ryan Kelly during the team's Week 5 12-9 win over the Denver Broncos.

Nsekhe is an eight-year veteran and has appeared in 93 games for the St. Louis Rams, Washington Commanders, Buffalo Bills, and Dallas Cowboys. The 37-year-old tackle hasn't started a game since 2019. He'll likely serve as depth along a Colts offensive line desperate for answers. 
Nsekhe has had a long, circuitous journey through the NFL. He first latched on in the league at 27 years old with the Rams and didn't notch a start until his age-30 season with the Commanders. His persistence has paid off; according to Pro Football Focus, he has graded as an above-average offensive lineman in every season except 2017.
