The former Los Angeles Charger had a career year last season, where he accounted for 5 sacks, and 19 tackles before signing a one year contract with the Colts this offseason.
However as of now his play on the field will take a potential backseat - if McCain is convicted, he faces up to six months in jail, plus any potential fines or probation.
