INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts have officially "shut down" veteran defensive lineman Kendall Langford.

On Saturday afternoon, the Colts placed Langford on injured reserve.

Chuck Pagano was hoping to get Langford back to practice this week, but clearly the injury did not allow for that.

A preseason knee scope back in August for Langford was the beginning of a very difficult 2016 for the nine-year veteran.

Langford, who also dealt with an abdomen injury earlier this year, was healthy enough to play in the regular season opener, but was not himself in the first seven games.

Pagano said after Week Seven, the Colts were "shutting down" Langford for a period of time. He hasn't played or practiced since.

That ended a remarkable 135-game streak of consecutive games played for Langford. At the time, that active streak was the longest in the NFL for any defensive lineman.

While this move doesn't officially end Langford's season, he has to miss at least eight weeks and could not come back unless the Colts made a deep playoff run.

The healthy defensive linemen for the Colts are now: Henry Anderson, Arthur Jones, Zach Kerr, T.Y. McGill, David Parry and Hassan Ridgeway.
