Colts bring Guy back to help defensive line

INDIANAPOLIS -- The first sign that Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois' groin injury could cause him to miss some time came Tuesday morning when the team announced that it re-signed defensive lineman Lawrence Guy. The Colts also signed offensive tackle Xavier Nixon off Washington’s practice squad.

Jean Francois was injured in the second half of Sunday’s victory in San Francisco.

Guy is a familiar name for the Colts. He was with the Colts last season, starting two of the nine games he appeared in. He was cut by the team last month.

The Colts could also use extra bodies on the offensive line. Center Samson Satele missed the 49ers game with an elbow injury and guard Donald Thomas is out for the season with a torn quad.
