Colts OL Mewhort retiring

(WESTFIELD, IN) – Indianapolis offensive lineman Jack Mewhort has announced his retirement a week into training camp after starting every game he played during his four seasons. In a statement released from the team, Mewhort thanked the Irsay family and the entire Colts organization for giving him the opportunity to live a childhood dream. Mewhort says the fans and the city of Indianapolis have treated him like one of their own, and he is forever grateful. Mewhort, 26, who was selected in the second round of the 2014 draft, started all 45 games he appeared in during his career. Injuries, however, took a toll on his body in each of the past two seasons. He only played a total of 15 games in the 2016 and 2017 seasons because of knee injuries that sent him to the season-ending injured reserve list. He signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Colts this past spring and was likely only going to be a backup after the addition of veteran Matt Slauson and the drafting of Quenton Nelson, the two players who have been working with the first unit at left and right guard. Mewhort spent some time playing left tackle during training camp while starter Anthony Castonzo was on the non-football injury list. Mewhort's retirement means the Colts have no players currently on their roster from their 2014 draft class.
