Colts claim defensive tackle T.Y. McGill off waivers

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts added a body to their defensive line Sunday, a day after cutting a defensive tackle and a nose tackle and losing their starting defensive tackle for the season due to an ankle injury.

The Colts have claimed defensive tackle T.Y. McGill off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

Not much was known about McGill when he signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent from North Carolina State. But he had a decent preseason with Seattle.

It’s uncertain how big of a role McGill will have with the Colts, but they need help up front because Josh Chapman and Montori Hughes were released and Art Jones was placed on injured reserve on Saturday.

Defensive end Kendall Langford is the only defensive lineman currently on the roster who has started any games in their career. Langford has started 90 of the 112 games he’s played in.

To make room for McGill, the Colts cut rookie linebacker Amarlo Herrera.
