The Indianapolis Colts today completed the process of bringing its roster down to the 75-player maximum limit by the Tuesday, Aug. 27, 4 p.m. deadline.

The team Monday officially waived injured wide receiver Nathan Palmer, placed safety John Boyett on the reserve and non-football injury list, but received a roster exemption for linebacker Josh McNary to keep him on the team.

Palmer suffered a sprained MCL during the Saturday, Aug. 24 preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, and was expected to miss 4-6 weeks. Boyett was the team's sixth round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, but has yet to practice this season.

McNary received exempt military status for reporting out of the Army after June 1 and not appearing in a preseason game this year.

On the offensive side of the ball, running back Davin Meggett, guard Danous Estenor and center Rick Schmeig were all waived by the team. On defense, tackle Kellen Heard, linebacker C. O. Prime and defensive backs Johnny Adams, Allen Chapman and Ashante Williams were also amongst those waived. Kicker Brandon McManus also was let go.

The team's other three moves included wide receiver Maurice Williams being waived with the agreement to an injury settlement, defensive back Teddy Williams getting waived-injured, and placing linebacker Lawrence Sidbury on Injured Reserve.
