McNary signed a contract with the Jaguars on Thursday. McNary spent the last four seasons with the Colts, playing in 49 games and recording 79 combined tackles. He posted a team-high nine special teams tackles in 2016, and should fill a similar special teams role with the Jaguars while providing depth for the team's linebacker corps.
McNary will not receive a tender offer from the Colts, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports. McNary was a quality backup and special teams player for the Colts in 2016. He had 23 tackles and a forced fumble while playing in all 16 games. He'll be an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins Thursday.
McNary was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports. McNary suffered a "burner" during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, but the issue appears to be a non-factor at this point as he should be able to play in Week 9 versus the Packers.
McNary is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a "burner," BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. As long as McNary remains out, expect Edwin Jackson to see a starter's share of snaps at inside linebacker.
McNary (shoulder) had five total tackles and played 35 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss at Houston. McNary got all the snaps at inside linebacker opposite D'Qwell Jackson, but he came out on nickle and dime packages with Jackson saying in (he played all 71 snaps). Still, it looks like McNary will get the vast majority of playing time opposite Jackson over Antonio Morrison after the release of Sio Moore.
