The Indianapolis Colts are shelving their starting right guard for the remainder of the season.

Jack Mewhort was placed on injured reserve on Saturday after aggravating a knee injury in Friday's practice, coach Chuck Pagano told reporters. The guard will have to undergo another procedure after his knee flared up during walk-throughs.

Mewhort was listed as a "DNP" on Friday's injury report for a non-injury related issue. Clearly, that wasn't the case.

Mewhort had started all five games this season. Pro Football Focus graded Mewhort as the 48th-best guard in football in 2017.

Indianapolis' second-round selection from 2014 missed six games last year and ended the season on injured reserve with the same injury.

The team signed second-year guard Isaiah Williams in a corresponding move. Kyle Kalis, Mike Person and Le'Raven Clark are also potential replacements for Mewhort.

Mewhort is in the final year of his four-year rookie deal and will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
