Colts’ Dallas Clark to retire
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former Indianapolis tight end Dallas Clark will retire Wednesday with the team that brought him into the NFL.
Clark was Indy’s first-round pick in 2003. In nine seasons, he broke the franchise’s career tight end records for receptions (427) and TD catches (46) and finished second in yards receiving (4,887) and 100-yard games (seven). He also set Colts single season records with 100 receptions and 1,106 yards in 2009 and 11 TD catches in 2007.
He was released following the 2011 season, part of the rebuilding purge that included the release of Peyton Manning and defensive captain Gary Brackett among others.
Clark landed with Tampa Bay in 2012 and played in Baltimore last year. He finished with 505 receptions, 5,665 yards and 53 TDs.
The Colts announced the retirement Monday.
Indiana transfer lands at Illinois State
NORMAL, Ill. (AP) — Illinois State reported that former Indiana quarterback Tre Roberson has been added to the Redbirds’ roster.
Illinois State coach Brock Spack said Monday the 6-foot-3, 203-pound redshirt junior has enrolled and will have two years of eligibility left. Spack said he liked the fact that Roberson can run and throw on the run.
Roberson announced earlier this month he was leaving Indiana. Because Illinois State is a Championship Subdivision school, he will be eligible to play right away.
He played in 23 games for the Hoosiers and threw for 20 touchdowns and 2,433 yards on 197-of-330 passing. Roberson broke a leg in 2012 as a sophomore and was granted a medical redshirt.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Louisville will host in-state rival Kentucky on Dec. 27 in a game that will be billed as the Basketball Hall of Fame Shootout.
Portions of the proceeds from the game to be broadcast on ESPN2 will benefit the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
The Wildcats lead the series 32-15 and have won six of seven against the Cardinals, including twice last season. Kentucky won the second meeting 74-69 at the NCAA Midwest region semifinal in Indianapolis en route to its runner-up finish.
