The former Army standout is now with the team at training camp in Anderson. UPDATE: C.O. Prime recalled after being cut and is now back on the team's 90-man training camp roster.

The Colts have announced that former West Point defensive stud Josh McNary has joined his new teammates in Anderson, IN for training camp after serving in the U.S. Army. To make room for McNary - who will play outside linebacker - the Colts waived rookie C.O. Prime.

McNary was a three-year starter at West Point before having to commit two years to serving in the Army. The Colts signed McNary in April 2013, but he was unable to join the team for OTAs or minicamp because of his service obligations.

We all wondered if and when McNary would join the Colts as he is an intriguing prospect who could, at the very least, make an impact on special teams with his speed and explosiveness. He's a bit undersized at 6'0, 255 pounds.

The Colts official Twitter handle already has a picture posted of Chuck Pagano coaching McNary.

Unfortunately, adding McNary meant C.O. Prime had to go. It's sad because Prime had THE BEST NAME in camp. He also impressed people during OTAs and minicamp. Cory Redding sung his praises during the offseason as well. Prime played his college ball at Wagner. The Colts had signed him as an undrafted rookie following the 2013 NFL Draft.

[UPDATE]: The Colts placed nose tackle Brandon McKinney on IR today following the team's afternoon practice. By placing McKinney on IR, the team was able to rescinded waivers on recently released linebacker C.O. Prime. Prime was cut earlier today to make room for linebacker Josh McNary. So, in the span of roughly 8 hours, Prime was both cut and recalled by the same team.
