Colts get down to mandatory 75 players

By Mike Wells

Sorry to disappoint you, but there wasn’t any suspense with the Indianapolis Colts' roster cut down.

The Colts got down to the mandatory 75 players on Tuesday when they waived injured receiver Nathan Palmer, placed rookie safety John Boyett on the reserve/non-football injury list and moved rookie linebacker Josh McNary, who was in the Army, to the exempt list.

McNary’s exemption is under the reserve/military rules where the player reported after June 1, 2013, and has not played in the preseason. He missed the first three games with a hamstring injury.

There could be some suspense when the Colts have to get their roster down to 53 players by the 6 p.m. ET deadline Saturday.
