A quarterback, a wide receiver and a defensive lineman were amongst the Indianapolis Colts' roster moves on Monday. Get the details in this news feature from ColtPower.com.

The Indianapolis Colts made three roster moves on Monday, including the release of former Cardinals quarterback John Navarre. The team also placed wide receiver Devin Aromashodu on injured reserve and claimed defensive end J.J. Milan off of waivers from the Oakland Raiders.

The strong-armed Navarre didn't seem to be picking up the Colts playbook effectively as his execution in the early days of training camp was erratic at best. By waiving Navarre, the Colts now have the same four quarterbacks they had in training camp last year -- Peyton Manning, Jim Sorgi, Josh Betts and Mike McGann. Betts was on the team's practice squad last season while McGann was released during the summer.

Wide receiver Devin Aromashodu, who reportedly pulled a hamstring muscle during last Wednesday's practice, has been placed on injured reserve after clearing waivers over the weekend. Initial speculation by the team was that the first-year wide receiver would only miss a couple of weeks of camp. In addition to working out at wide receiver, Aromashodu was getting some work as a returns specialist as well.

Indianapolis used one of the vacated roster spots to claim former Raiders defensive end J.J. Milan off of waivers. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound rookie out of Nevada has a reputation as a smart, quick player with good instincts. He made 39 tackles and posted 9.5 sacks during his senior year, earning Outstanding Defensive Player of the Year honors. Some projected Milan to be an outside linebacker at the pro level due to his size, and that's where he was reportedly trying to make the team with the Raiders. But in Indianapolis' scheme, he fits as a defensive end and will be able to play his natural position.

The Colts' addition of Milan further solidifies the team's decision to move former Texas Tech defensive end Keyunta Dawson solely to defensive tackle. Dawson registered a pair of sacks and a fumble recovery last weekend during the team's Blue-and-White scrimmage while playing defensive tackle.
