Colts Hit Practice Field, Some Players Sit Out

Last updated on Thursday, September 27, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts were back at practice Wednesday as they get ready for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos at the RCA Dome.

It will be the Colts' first home game since their 41-17 win over the New Orleans Saints on opening night.

The horseshoes have won their last ten games at the RCA Dome, one shy of the franchise record.

The last time the Colts faced the Broncos was last October in Denver when Adam Vinatieri's 37-yard field goal with two seconds remaining gave Indianapolis a 37-34 win, their seventh-straight victory to open the 2006 season.

Seven Colts sat out practice on Wednesday. Defensive backs Marlin Jackson and Tim Jennings, linebackers Tyjuan Hagler and Clint Session, offensive linemen Ryan Lilja and Tony Ugoh and wide receiver Roy Hall missed all of yesterday's workout.

Linebacker Rob Morris and offensive tackle Charlie Johnson did not participate in the full practice session, but were back on the field getting some work in.

Morris has not played since the season opener with the Saints and says he expects to be ready to play in Sunday's game with Denver.

Johnson suffered a knee injury in the preseason finale against Cincinnati but did return for last Sunday's game in Houston.
