INDIANAPOLIS COLTS MAKE ROSTER MOVES

Posted by coltsindianapolis on November 26, 2013 – 5:03 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today elevated inside linebacker Josh McNary from the practice squad to the active roster. The team also waived tight end Justice Cunningham and wide receiver David Reed and placed safety Delano Howell on Injured Reserve.

McNary, 6-0, 251 pounds, was originally signed by the Colts as a free agent on April 11, 2013. He finished his collegiate career as Army’s all-time leader in sacks (28.0) and tackles for loss (49), while adding 195 tackles (117 solo), nine passes defensed, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He is the only player in school history to record two double-digit sack seasons and also holds school records for the most sacks in a single game (4.0) and a single season (12.5).

Cunningham was selected by the Colts in the seventh round (254th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft and was signed to the practice squad on September 2, 2013. He was then elevated to the active roster on November 19 and caught one pass for four yards in one game played.

Reed was acquired by the Colts in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens on August 21, 2013. He played in seven games this season and returned 24 kickoffs for 590 yards (24.6 avg.). For his career, Reed has returned 63 kickoffs for 1,740 yards (27.6 avg.) and one touchdown in 36 games played.

Howell was originally signed by the Colts from the Buffalo Bills practice squad on November 28, 2012. In 2013, he appeared in six games, making three starts and recording 24 tackles (14 solo) and two passes defensed. He also recovered a blocked field goal and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown against Seattle (10/6/13).

    That’s why they are so out of sync. They keep make these stupid roster moves every week instead of letting them get some chemistry

    Disciplined athletes with character and intelligence are always welcomed. I also agree that we need more quality receivers, but I think we will have to do the best with what we have. Also, if Mr. Lynch can fit in, then he will. If he can’t, then he will have to go. I think the problem mostly needs to be put at the coaches’ doorstep. Why they cannot get the team ready to fight from the beginning is something they must fix lest they have to find another job at the end of the year. Go Colts! Go Chuck! Go Andrew! Go OFFENSIVE LINE! Go DEFENSE! Out “tough” the other team! My hopes are high and expectations are realistic!
