The Indianapolis Colts released RB Chris Rainey.

Footballguys view: The Colts just lost running back Vick Ballard and Rainey had earned praise from head coach Chuck Pagano, so this is curious. Rainey was a character risk going back to his days at Florida, so an off the field issue could be the cause of this sudden release.
