The Indianapolis Colts have signed free agent running back Dominic Rhodes and placed defensive back Jerraud Powers on injured reserve with an arm injury, the club announced Tuesday. Rhodes spent seven seasons with the Colts from 2001-06 and 2008 after originally signing as a free agent out of Midwestern State. He spent 2007 with Oakland and this past season with the UFL's Florida Tuskers.

Powers, a second-year veteran, started 10 games in 2010 and had 53 tackles, two interceptions and a team-best nine passes defensed.

In eight NFL seasons, Rhodes has totaled 777 carries for 3,114 yards and 26 touchdowns and 146 receptions for 1,021 yards and four touchdowns. His Colts career totals include 702 rushes for 2,812 yards and 25 touchdowns, including five 100-plus-yard games. During the Colts' Super Bowl title run following the 2006 season, Rhodes rushed 62 times for 306 yards and one touchdown, including 21 carries for 113 yards and a touchdown in the team's Super Bowl XLI victory.
