NFL: Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts

The Colts claimed former center, A.Q. Shipley, off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens today. Shipley was originally signed by the Colts in January of 2012 and started 5 games for the team, but was traded to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2014 conditional 7th round pick in the 2013 offseason. He started 9 games for the Ravens last season, mostly at guard.

Originally a 7th round pick out of Penn State of the Steelers in 2009, Shipley demonstrated cohesion with starting quarterback Andrew Luck during his short time as a Colt and played considerably well, filling in for then injured starter Samson Satele.

In a corresponding move, the team released back-up center, Thomas Austin, in order to make room on the 53-man roster.
