Colts claim DE Addison off waivers from Bears, release RB Evans

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have claimed defensive end Mario Addison off waivers from the Chicago Bears and signed receiver Jarred Fayson to the practice squad.

To make room on the active roster, the Colts cut running back Darren Evans, who was named Indiana's Mr. Football during his prep career.

Addison joined the Bears in July as an undrafted rookie. The 6-foot-3, 252-pound end from Troy University made the team and played in three games with the Bears but did not record a tackle.

The Saints signed Fayson as an undrafted rookie in July. He was cut Sept. 3. Fayson started his college career at Florida then transferred to Illinois.

Evans played in two games for the Colts and has been on both the practice squad and the active roster this season.
