Indianapolis beefs up offensive, defensive lines with new additions

The Indianapolis Colts signed defensive lineman Lawrence Guy and offensive lineman Xavier Nixon on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4, 318-pound Guy spent part of last season with the Colts but was waived in August during the final cuts.

Nixon, a 6-6, 314-pound tackle, had been on Washington's practice squad.

To make room for the players, Indianapolis (2-1) waived receiver Da'Rick Rogers and running back Kerwynn Williams.

Rogers joined the practice squad on Sept. 2 and was promoted to the active roster on Sept. 19 when Indy was hit by a rash of injuries.

Williams, a seventh-round pick, was on the practice squad until he was promoted to the active roster when Vick Ballard went down with a season-ending knee injury two weeks ago.
