Indianapolis — The Indianapolis Colts have signed running back Javarris James to the active roster and dumped the contract of linebacker Tyjuan Hagler.
James is the cousin of the Colts’ career rushing leader, Edgerrin James, and spent the entire preseason with Indianapolis.
Javarris James was released Sept. 4 and joined New England’s practice squad two days later.
James, who attended Miami (Fla.), was released by New England on Tuesday night and was immediately signed to Washington’s practice squad. After practicing with the Redskins on Wednesday, the Colts signed him to the active roster.
James, then, has been with three teams in a short span of three days.
