Colts Waive NT Brandon McKinney, Expected To Sign S Ashante Williams

USA TODAY Sports

Colts have reached an injury settlement with McKinney and waive him.

Brandon McKinney's surgically repaired knee acted up during Colts training camp last week. He couldn't practice despite him being involved in OTAs and mandatory minicamp during the offseason. Thus, the Colts placed him on the injured reserve (IR) list, supposedly ending his season.

However, last night word came from the Colts last night that the team had reached an injury settlement with McKinney and released him. This means he is no longer on IR for the Colts, and he can join another team and play this season.

Personally, I wouldn't surprised to see him resurface in Baltimore. McKinney was well-liked it seemed by staff and players on the Colts. He never played in a regular season game after he signed a two-year, $2 million deal with the Colts during the 2012 offseason.

The other bit of news comes from IndyStar.com's Mike Chappell: The Colts are expected to sign safety Ashante Williams today, per him passing his physical.

Williams was known as a problem player at Illinois, but all signs point to him turning his life around and focusing on football. Williams went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Colts are dinged up at safety, with LaRon Landry, Sergio Brown, and Joe Lefeged all unlikely to play in the Colts' first preseason game against the Bills on Sunday.
