  • Colts' Ethan Fernea: Staying in Indianapolis

    Fernea signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.

    Fernea joined the Colts' practice squad in early December, failing to record any stats while appearing in three games with the team down the final stretch of the year. The wide receiver will now have a chance to compete for a spot on the team's 53-man roster ahead of the 2024 campaign.

  • Ethan Fernea: Reverts to practice squad

    The Colts reverted Fernea to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Fernea has been elevated from the practice squad each of the past three weeks, but he's logged only two offensive snaps over that span while working mostly on special teams. If the Colts want him to suit up again Saturday versus Houston, they'd need to sign him to the active roster.

  • Colts' Ethan Fernea: Elevated Saturday

    The Colts elevated Fernea to the active roster Saturday.

    This marks Fernea's third elevation in as many weeks. He has played just two offensive snaps compared to 19 on special teams over the previous two games, so he will presumably again be more involved in the latter camp. However, if both Michael Pittman (concussion) and D.J. Montgomery (groin) are unable to go, Fernea could see some extra snaps on offense.

  • Ethan Fernea: Returns to practice squad

    Fernea reverted to the Colts' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Fernea played two offensive snaps and 12 snaps on special teams during Sunday's loss at Atlanta. His chances of being elevated again Week 17 may come down to whether Michael Pittman's (shoulder) is able to retake the field. Fernea has yet to draw a target across two appearances this season.

  • Colts' Ethan Fernea: Back up to active roster

    The Colts elevated Fernea to the active roster Saturday.

    Fernea made his season debut in Week 15 against the Steelers and played exclusively on special teams. With Michael Pittman's (shoulder) status up in the air, Fernea could see some run on offense Sunday against the Falcons, but he isn't expected to play a significant statistical role.

    Fernea reverted to Indianapolis' practice squad Monday.

    Fernea was called up for the first time since signing with the team earlier in December and played seven snaps on special teams during the team's loss to the Steelers on Saturday. However, the 25-year-old failed to record any stats and will now wait for another opportunity to be elevated.

  • Ethan Fernea: Gets cut loose

    Fernea (undisclosed) was waived from injured reserve by the Colts on Thursday with an injury settlement, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Fernea saw action in one game with the Colts last season and then re-signed with the team in January on a reserve/future deal. He was placed on injured reserve Saturday, which would have put him out for the season had he not reached an injury settlement. Now he'll be able to find an opportunity with a new team once he can prove himself healthy.

    The Colts have placed Fernea on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

    The Colts signed Fernea to a reserve/future contract Friday.

  • Ethan Fernea: Back to practice squad

    Fernea reverted to the Colts' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Fernea received the promotion with Keke Coutee currently in concussion protocols. The 24-year-old saw one snap on offense and nine of special teams against the Titans on Sunday, but he failed to tally any stats. If Coutee remains out Sunday against Washington, Fernea could earn another chance on the active roster.

  • Colts' Ethan Fernea: Added to active roster

    Fernea was elevated from the Colts' practice squad to the active roster Saturday, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

    Fernea spent all of training camp with the Colts and has been on the practice squad since. With Keke Coutee (concussion) ruled out, Fernea could have the chance to be active for his first NFL game. If so, he is likely to still be buried among the team's wide receiver corps.

  • Ethan Fernea: Joins Colts' practice squad

    Indianapolis signed Fernea to the practice squad Wednesday.

    Fernea didn't log a statistically impactful preseason with the Colts, but he evidently showed enough to warrant more development. Indianapolis still lists the former UCLA running back as a wide receiver.
