The Colts signed left tackle Xavier Nixon off the Redskins’ practice squad, they announced Tuesday morning.
Nixon was originally signed by the Redskins in April, when he went undrafted out of Florida. The 6-foot-6, 314-pounder was signed to the practice squad earlier this month when initial 53-man rosters were finalized.
He played in 46 games at Florida and started 33 over four seasons.
It was unclear Tuesday afternoon how the Redskins planned to fill Nixon’s spot on the practice squad.
