The Indianapolis Colts waived-injured wide receiver and Elkhart Central alum Nathan Palmer on Tuesday.
If Palmer clears waivers, he will revert to the Colts Injured Reserve list.
The Colts also placed safety John Boyett on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list and moved linebacker Josh McNary to an exempt status on the roster. With the moves, the Colts have reached the league-mandated 75-man active roster
Palmer was signed by the Colts off the San Francisco 49ers practice squad on September 24, 2012. Last season, he caught one pass in five games played.
He was injured in the this weekend's preseason game against the Browns, straining his MCL. Palmer is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.
