DT Tommie Harris among players released by Colts

BY foxsports • September 3, 2011

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris was one of 27 players cut by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday to reach the NFL roster limit of 53.

Harris, a former first-round draft pick, was released by Chicago in February and signed with the Colts during the first week of training camp.

Indy also waived two draft picks from 2010 - guard Jacques McClendon and defensive tackle Ricardo Mathews. Receiver Taj Smith was placed on the waived-injured list and another receiver, Blair White, was activated from the physically unable to perform list.

Running backs Darren Evans and Chad Spann, who both played prep ball in Indy, made the active roster. And the Colts kept three quarterbacks: Peyton Manning, Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter. Veteran Dan Orlovsky was waived.
