Colts signed NT Brandon McKinney.
A nine-year veteran, McKinney was a Colt in 2011-12, but spent both years stowed away on injured reserve with knee issues. Going on 31, McKinney will fight for a rotational role along the Colts' defensive line, but has to prove he's healthy before anything else. Thu, Jun 19, 2014 02:30:00 PM

Free agent NT Brandon McKinney is participating in Colts minicamp on a tryout basis.

McKinney, 31 in August, hasn't played a snap since the Divisional Round of the playoffs with the Ravens in 2011. He came to Indianapolis with coach Chuck Pagano in 2012 but tore his ACL in August of that year and ended up missing the next two seasons. If healthy, McKinney would be a worth a flier. That's a big "if."

Colts released NT Brandon McKinney with an injury settlement.

McKinney was placed on injured reserve with "knee issues" last week. His "issues" were never made clear, but he was reportedly still struggling with his recovery from his 2012 ACL tear. McKinney is now free to sign with any team, but will have to get healthy first. Going on 30, he's appeared in just 30 games since the end of the 2008 season.

Colts placed NT Brandon McKinney on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

McKinney was having issues with his troublesome left knee, and the Colts clearly weren't optimistic they'd get better. Going on 30, McKinney has appeared in just 30 games since the end of the 2008 season. The Colts have adequate nose-tackle depth with Aubrayo Franklin and 2012 fifth-rounder Josh Chapman.

The Colts are "optimistic" that NT Brandon McKinney (torn ACL) will be ready for training camp.

McKinney tore his ACL last August after signing a two-year deal. Entering his age-30 season, he needs to get on the field as soon as possible to compete for a job. The Colts signed NT Aubrayo Franklin as a free agent and have 2012 fifth-rounder Josh Chapman waiting in the wings.

Colts placed DT Brandon McKinney on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

The Colts signed McKinney to a two-year, $2 million contract in April to help install Chuck Pagano's new 3-4 defense. They'll be relying heavily on holdover Antonio Johnson now, especially early in the season. Rookie Josh Chapman is beginning the year on PUP. McKinney was going to play significant snaps.

Colts signed DT Brandon McKinney to a two-year contract.

McKinney joins DT Cory Redding in following former Ravens coordinator Chuck Pagano to Indianapolis. McKinney played roughly one-fifth of Baltimore's defensive snaps last season as a backup to NT Terrence Cody. He's likely ticketed for a situational run-stuffer role with the Colts.

Ravens DT Brandon McKinney was a healthy scratch in Week 9.

McKinney was replaced by Cory Redding, who began the season as the starter. Redding ended up with two tackles.
Mon, Nov 8, 2010 09:34:00 AM

Brandon McKinney started at defensive end over Cory Redding in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

The two ends are rotating heavily regardless of who starts. Redding had two tackles on Sunday while McKinney didn't even get in the box score.
Mon, Oct 18, 2010 09:36:00 AM

Ravens DL Brandon McKinney participated in individual drills Tuesday for the first time since undergoing surgery in February to repair a herniated disc in his back.

"It went good, man," McKinney said. "I'm lighter than I was, I was up there. I've had no setbacks. Everything is straight." He'll have to fight for a roster spot this year after the Ravens added veteran Cory Redding and rookie Terrence Cody.
Tue, Jun 8, 2010 09:05:00 PM

Ravens DL Brandon McKinney underwent surgery in February to repair a herniated disc in his back.

The back injury ended McKinney's season in December after appearing in just seven games. While he's expected to return for training camp, the Ravens may opt to cut ties after signing Cory Redding and drafting Terrence Cody.
Tue, May 18, 2010 01:16:00 PM

Ravens DL Brandon McKinney, who was listed at 360 pounds last season, is trying to get down to 325.

McKinney hasn't been able to participate fully in the offseason program yet because of the back injury that ended his season prematurely in 2009. But he sees an opening with Justin Bannan gone and is pushing himself to get in shape and win the job. The Ravens likely still see him as a backup until proven otherwise.
Sun, Mar 28, 2010 11:14:00 AM

Ravens placed DT Brandon McKinney (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

McKinney appeared in just seven games this season and recorded two tackles. He's signed through 2011 but probably isn't worth the $1.2 million he's scheduled to make in 2010.
Sat, Dec 19, 2009 01:45:00 PM

Ravens re-signed DL Brandon McKinney to a three-year contract.

An impending restricted free agent, McKinney would've cost $1.01M to tender at the lowest rate. The Ravens wanted him back, but he isn't worth that much. McKinney, a backup, will likely make minimum salaries through 2011.
Tue, Feb 17, 2009 12:51:00 PM

Ravens signed DT Brandon McKinney.

McKinney was just released by the Chargers on Saturday. He will take the roster spot of nose tackle Kelly Kregg, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
