Washington Redskins RB Josh Ferguson was signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Free-agent RB Josh Ferguson worked out for the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

  Texans | Josh Ferguson still viewed as top candidate for RB3 role    Sun Jul 28, 03:52 PM

Houston Texans RB Josh Ferguson is still regarded as the leading candidate for the team's third running back role, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Lamar Miller and D'Onta Foreman are locked in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Ferguson is in line to get some passing down work and Foreman will get early down work. Miller should get enough touches to justify his ADP, but if Foreman comes on as a runner it could muddy the waters.

  Texans | Houston signs eight to futures contracts    Mon Jan 7, 06:35 PM

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a versatile all-purpose back who can make defenders miss in the open field. He's mainly been with the Colts since coming into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Ilinois in 2016. We'll monitor him in the deepest dynasty formats.

  Texans | Josh Ferguson released    Tue Oct 23, 07:36 PM

Houston Texans RB Josh Ferguson was released Tuesday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: That didn't last long. Ferguson, undrafted out of Illinois in 2016, has spent most of his pro career bouncing on and off the Colts roster and practice squad. The Texans just signed him to their practice squad on October 17th...and here we are just a few days later and he's without a job. We'll see if Ferguson lands another practice squad gig soon.

  Colts | Two practice squad moves for Colts    Tue Oct 17, 04:36 PM

Free-agent RB Josh Ferguson (Colts) was re-signed to the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 17. WR Cyril Grayson was released from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a good receiving back who has spent plenty of time in the Colts system after they picked him up as a college free agent out of Illinois in 2016. He's a good all-purpose back who gets another opportunity now that Robert Turbin is done for the year.

Footballguys view: Watch for a guy like Ferguson to be brought back on the team's practice squad. Other than that, perhaps a player like Krieger-Coble could make it to the developmental squad too.

  Colts | Dalton Crossan could make roster    Sun Jun 25, 09:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dalton Crossan did 'everything right every day' during OTAs, according to general manager Chris Ballard, and Kevin Bowen of Colts.com believes Crossan could compete with RB Josh Ferguson for a roster spot if the Colts decide to keep four running backs.

Footballguys view: At 5'11" 204 pounds, Crossan was an impressive player during his college career at New Hampshire. He's fast but it takes him some time to throttle down and change direction. Crossan is best used as a player in space, slot receiver or receiver out of the backfield...plus he's got returner experience on special teams.

  Colts | Josh Ferguson seeing targets    Tue Oct 4, 06:39 PM

  Colts | Growing pains for Josh Ferguson    Sun Aug 21, 11:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson is averaging 0.69 yards per carry on 13 rushes this preseason, and he has struggled in pass protection.

Footballguys view: Ferguson has been tossed around as a sleeper in some fantasy circles -- and for good reason. The rookie has a real opportunity to begin the season as the primary backup behind Frank Gore. He's more quick than fast, but Ferguson is elusive in the open field and can be utilized well in a fast-break offense. However, the kid is going to have to protect the QB or he simply won't see the field. We like him as a 'lottery ticket' pick in the last round of the draft, but we'd like to see more from him in the preseason.

  Colts | Josh Ferguson gains valuable reps    Fri Aug 19, 01:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson ran with the first-team offense in the Colts' first preseason game and understands how valuable the experience is to improving his game. An undrafted free-agent rookie, Ferguson has gained praise around the Indianapolis organization this summer, and the Colts are intrigued by his ability as a complementary receiving back.

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a good receiver out of the backfield and he has some suddenness in space, but he could be overwhelmed running between the tackles in the NFL.. He's the handcuff to Frank Gore, but Ferguson also has a bust risk if he inherits the starting job.

  Colts | Backup running back unclear in Indy    Tue Jul 19, 05:40 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is the unquestioned starter for the Colts, but his backup remains to be seen. ESPN.com's Mike Wells did mention RB Josh Ferguson first for the position, however.

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a nice sleeper rookie RB to consider. He was a good all-purpose back in college at Illinois, and our very own Cecil Lammey reported positive things about Ferguson during the week of practice for the East-West Shrine Game earlier this year. Ferguson is more quick than fast, and he doesn't waste time dancing in the backfield. He's electric with the ball in his hands, but he's not much of a bruiser. We like him as a receiver out of the backfield too. Keep his name in mind when considering backup Colts RBs. In 2015, 37.2 percent of Ferguson's carries went for five yards or more.
