The Colts announced they signed free agent offensive tackle Andrew McDonald and waived tight end Weslye Saunders. McDonald played in two games for the Seahawks this season.
The Colts listed tight end Weslye Saunders, linebacker Andy Studebaker, offensive lineman Lance Louis, offensive lineman Hugh Thornton, offensive lineman Xavier Nixon, tight end Dwayne Allen and defensive lineman Zach Kerr as inactive for Week 13 against the Panthers.
The Colts have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 17 players and making other moves. The offensive players on the list are running back David Fluellen, quarterback Chandler Harnish, wide receivers Ryan Lankford and Josh Lenz, center FN Lutz, tight ends Weslye Saunders and Erik Swoope and guard Josh Walker. The defensive players let go by Indianapolis are ends Gannon Conway and Tyler Hoover, linebackers Rob Ruggiero, Kelvin Sheppard, Phillip Hunt and Andrew Jackson, safety Dewey McDonald, tackles Brandon McKinney and Nnamdi Obukwelu and cornerback Sheldon Price. The Colts waived/injured tackle Matt Hall and safety Delano Howell and placed linebacker Robert Mathis on the reserve/suspended list.
The Colts are in largely good health for Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Chiefs, as their inactive list is made up of healthy scratches, with the exception of injured defensive lineman Fili Moala (knee). Joining Moala on the inactive list are linebacker Daniel Adongo, defensive backs Sheldon Price and Cassius Vaughn, tight end Weslye Saunders and offensive linemen Khaled Holmes and Joe Reitz.
