Colts release Brandon McKinney from IR


Last week, the Colts placed veteran nose tackle Brandon McKinney on injured reserve.  This week, the Colts cut him loose.

The team announced on Tuesday that McKinney has been released from injured reserve, with an injury settlement.

McKinney joined the Colts last April, following coach Chuck Pagano from Baltimore, where Pagano had served as defensive coordinator.  McKinney spent all of 2012 on injured reserve with a torn ACL.

Undrafted in 2006 from Michigan State, McKinney spent three seasons with the Chargers and four with the Ravens.  He has appeared in 61 regular-season and seven postseason games.

    Stinks for him. Probably not a major deal for the Colts. Nevis and Chapman are coming on strong in camp.

    The Colts released Brandon and that is sad, however, he is now officially overqualified to play for any other team in the league. Thats right, if your not healthy or good enough to play for the Colts some other team will take you and you’ll be their best player. Only someone is extremely fat and ugly will click the thumbs down button.

    Facts, please. How are the Colts any better than any other middle of the road team? They play in one of the worst divisions in the league, too, and have one SB victory in the modern era? Seriously, what are you talking about?
