INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The smallest player on the Colts’ preseason roster might be the team’s biggest surprise.

At 5-foot-7, 153 pounds, JoJo Natson has proven he can be a dynamic kick returner and also is capable of making plays in the passing game. All he has to do now is demonstrate those skills one more time.

On Thursday against Cincinnati, Natson and dozens of other NFL hopefuls will get one last chance to convince the Colts they deserve a spot on the 53-man active roster.
