Colts put LB Angerer on injured reserve, sign RB

Colts linebacker Pat Angerer was placed on season-ending injured

reserve Tuesday.

Angerer was bothered all season by an undisclosed knee injury

but continued to play despite the pain. When it became clear the

injury was limiting Angerer’s play, the Colts shut him down. Last

year, Angerer made only three starts because of a foot injury. He

finished the season with 87 tackles and one interception.

Indy (9-5) replaced Angerer on the roster by signing free agent

Shaun Draughn. The 6-foot, 205-pound running has played in 20 games

and rushed for 235 yards and two TDs on 63 carries. He could help

fill a spot if Donald Brown cannot play Sunday at Kansas City

(11-3). Brown left Sunday’s game with a stinger and did not return

for the AFC South champs.
