Colts Taking Advantage Of Bye Week

Last updated on Tuesday, October 9, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN)- The Indianapolis Colts will get some much needed rest as they enter their bye week.

The blue and white were without five starters in their 33-to-14 win over Tampa Bay Sunday. Marvin Harrison, Joseph Addai, and Bob Sanders were three of the key players to sit out.

Colts coach Tony Dungy said the team didn't focus on who couldn't play, but who could. He said the team did not want to change the gameplan and that the backups stepped up in place of the wounded.

One of those to step up in a big way was rookie running back Kenton Keith, who got his first start in place of Addai. The former CFL player turned in an impressive performance by rushing for 121 yards and two touchdowns. He also grabbed five passes for 37 yards.

The defending Super Bowl champions return to the field on Monday, Oct. 22nd in Jacksonville and a meeting with the AFC South division-rival Jaguars.
