Colts shut down Brandon McKinney on IR

The Indianapolis Colts placed nose tackle Brandon McKinney on injured reserve due to ongoing knee problems.

He missed the entire season last year due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The Colts rescinded a waiver on linebacker C.O. Prime, keeping him on the roster.

McKinney is a former Baltimore Ravens reserve signed last year. In six career starts and 61 games, he has 82 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

The 6-foot-2, 345-pounder didn't practice earlier this week due to swelling in his knee.
