Colts cut Ridley, Irving to reach roster limit of 53
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Inside linebacker Nate Irving and running back Stevan Ridley were among the players cut by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.
Irving was hobbled by injuries most of last season. Ridley was signed Sunday and played in Thursday night's preseason finale.
To reach the roster limit of 53 players, Indy placed three players - cornerback Tevin Mitchell, outside linebacker Ron Thompson and offensive linemen Hugh Thornton - on injured reserve.
They also waived defensive linemen Sterling Bailey and Kelcy Quarles; linebackers Trevor Bates and Earl Okine; safeties Alden Darby, Lee Hightower and Stefan McClure; cornerbacks Tay Glover-Wright and Christopher Milton; receivers MeKale McKay and Tevaun Smith; and offensive linemen Kitt O'Brien, Adam Redmond, Mitchell Van Dyk and Jeremy Vujnovich.
