The Indianapolis Colts announced Tuesday that they have released safety Winston Guy Jr.

The former Lexington Catholic and University of Kentucky star had played in both games for the Colts this season. He made three tackles in Week 1 against the Lions, and one in Week 2 against the Broncos.

Guy has played in 34 career NFL games — with five starts — and registered 43 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and 15 special teams stops in his time with Indianapolis (2014-16), the Jacksonville Jaguars (2013-14) and the Seattle Seahawks (2012).

Guy was originally selected by the Seahawks in the sixth round, 181st overall, of the 2012 NFL Draft.
