The Indianapolis Colts have activated former Alabama noseguard Josh Chapman.
They picked him in the fifth round of this past spring’s NFL draft. However, he hasn’t been able to play as he has recovered from knee surgery.
He played most of his last season at Alabama with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
The Colts have room for Chapman because they’ve lost defensive tackle Drake Nevis for the rest of the season and placed him on injured reserve. He hurt his hand Thursday against the Jaguars.
