Harnish was among the players waived by the Indianapolis Colts today to bring their roster to the league-mandated 53 players.
If Harnish does not get an offer from another team, he is likely to be signed to the Colts practice squad, where he spent most of last season. Players can spend up to three seasons on the practice squad, unless they are active for nine regular-season games.
Harnish was the Colts' final pick in the 2012 draft and spent five games on the active roster last season, but did not play in a game.
Among the players cut by the Colts today were former draft picks defensive tackle Drake Nevis and offensive tackle Ben Ijalana.
Other players waived: rugby player Daniel Adongo, tight end Dominque Jones, defensive backs Larry Asante, Marshay Green and Sheldon Price, wide receivers Jeremy Kelley, Jabin Sambrano and Lanear Sampson, defensive end Lawrence Guy, linebackers Josh McNary and Monte Simmons, nose tackle Martin Tevaseu, tackle Lee Ziemba, center Thomas Austin and fullback Robert Hughes.
NFL teams can sign up to eight players to their practice squad on Sunday.OFFENSE
