Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary is being charged with rape.  The "Indianapolis Star" reports McNary is facing one count of rape, one count of criminal confinement and one count of battery.  The incident in question allegedly happened in downtown Indianapolis on December 1st. 

The U.S. Military Academy product recorded 28 total tackles and a half-sack, but primarily played on special teams in 15 games this season for the Colts.  According to a league source, the team was unaware of the investigation and is seeking additional information.  The Colts play the Patriots in the AFC title game on Sunday. 

Josh McNary has been placed on the commissioner exempt list after charges of rape.  The Colts requested the move, which was granted by commissioner Roger Goodell today.  The 26-year-old will not be allowed to practice with the team or attend games.
