INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 30, 2005) -- The Indianapolis Colts released running back Ran Carthon after he had carries in only three games this season.
To fill Carthon's roster spot, the Colts activated defensive back Von Hutchins from the practice squad. Hutchins, drafted in 2004 by the Colts out of Mississippi, had 42 tackles and an interception last season.
Carthon, whose father Maurice is the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator, had 13 carries for 18 yards this season. He scored a touchdown against Jacksonville on a 6-yard run during the Colts' second game this year.
