Tuesday, December 6, 2011
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have put rookie defensive tackle Drake Nevis on injured reserve with a lower back injury.
Nevis is the third defensive player from Indy to have his season end in less than 24 hours. Cornerbacks Jerraud Powers and Terrence Johnson were placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday.
To fill the roster, the Colts signed defensive back Brandon King from the Miami Dolphins practice squad, claimed linebacker Kevin Bentley off waivers from Jacksonville, promoted defensive back Mike Holmes from the practice squad to the active roster and signed offensive tackle Mike Tepper to the practice squad.
Nevis played in five games and had 19 tackles this season, but was hobbled by a back injury most of the season.
