Colts defensive tackle lands on IR again

– Colts tackle Brandon McKinney was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, costing the team one big piece of its rebuilt defensive line.

The 345-pound McKinney was lost one day after coach Chuck Pagano said he had swelling in his surgically repaired left knee. McKinney spent all of last season on injured reserve, too, after injuring the knee during a preseason game.

To replace McKinney, the Colts pulled linebacker C.O. Prime off waivers. Prime had been waived earlier to make room for another linebacker, Josh McNary, who was cleared to start practicing after serving a two-year stint in the U.S. Army.

McKinney watched the afternoon practice but did not participate, and Pagano did not take questions after the afternoon practice to explain why the decision was made.

Colts rookie offensive lineman Khaled Holmes was carted off the field with a right ankle injury. The severity of that injury isn’t known. Backup linebacker Scott Lutrus (knee) and safety Sergio Brown (hamstring) also left the afternoon practice early. And two-time Pro Bowl safety Antoine Bethea took the day off to attend the birth of his daughter.
