INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 8, 2005) -- Colts safety Joseph Jefferson has been place on injured reserve and will be out for the rest of the season.

Jefferson has been sidelined for the past two weeks with swelling and soreness in his knee. He underwent arthroscopic surgery Dec. 6, then was placed on IR.

Linebacker Mike Labinjo will take Jefferson's place on the roster. Labinjo, who started his career with Philadelphia, has been on the Colts' practice squad.

In another roster move, safety Brandon Lynch also has been placed on injured reserve. Lynch has been bothered by back spasms.
