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.

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.

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 in 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.

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 or not Michael Pittman's (shoulder) is able to retake the field. Fernea has yet to draw a target across two appearances this season.

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 Bengals on Sunday. However, the 25-year-old failed to record any stats and will now wait for another opportunity to be elevated.

The Colts elevated Fernea to the active roster Friday.

Fernea signed with the Colts' practice squad Dec. 1 after being let go by the team Aug. 10 with an injury settlement. The undrafted wide receiver out of UCLA has a chance to make his 2023 debut Saturday against the Steelers.

The Colts signed Fernea to the practice squad Friday.

Fernea gets a spot on Indianapolis' practice squad following the placement of KJ Hamler on the practice squad injured list. He also spent time on the Colts' practice squad as a rookie in 2022.

Works out with Colts

Fernea (undisclosed) had a workout with the Colts on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Fernea was waived with an injury settlement by Indy in August due to an undisclosed injury. His workout Monday indicates his health is finally back up to par. It remains to be seen if he will get an opportunity with the team.
