McGill was on the Browns' 53-man roster through Week 14, but was active for only three games, recording one tackle. The 25-year-old also had five sacks across 25 games in two seasons with the Colts.
McGill was waived by the Browns on Wednesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.
McGill logged one tackle in three games for the Browns this season. The Browns will replace him on the 53-man roster with offensive lineman Geoff Gray.
McGill (back) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is preparing for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Sunday will be McGill's season debut, but he isn't much more than a reserve defensive tackle. The third-year lineman recorded six tackles (four solo) and two sacks in 2016.
McGill (back) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Colts.
McGill was limited in practice throughout the week after sitting out Week 2. As a depth defensive lineman, McGill likely won't have a large role with the team when he does return to action.
McGill was a limited participant in practice this week after not playing Week 2 and is still dealing with a back issue from last season. Even if the 24-year-old is able to play Sunday he is unlikely to play a significant role for the Browns' defense.
