INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Defensive end Simeon Rice, signed two weeks ago to fill in for injured Pro Bowler Dwight Freeney, was released Tuesday by the Indianapolis Colts.
Rice, who played one season for Colts coach Tony Dungy at Tampa Bay, was claimed off waivers from Denver after Freeney suffered a season-ending foot injury at San Diego. Rice played the past two games, both as a reserve, and had one sack.
Dungy and other team officials were not available for comment, Colts spokesman Craig Kelley said.
The team also re-signed running back Luke Lawton, who played the first six games mainly on special teams, but was released last month.
