Colts Work Out Kinks After Bye Week

Last updated on Tuesday, October 16, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts were back on the practice field Monday afternoon as they get reacclamated following the bye week.

Head Coach Tony Dungy says Monday's practice was mainly to get the kinks out following a week off and that they will start preparing for Monday night's game in Jacksonville when they return to the practice field on Thursday.

The Colts are 5-and-0 while the Jaguars sit a game back in the AFC South at 4-and-1. The Colts' lowest point in the 2006 season occurred in Jacksonville when the Jaguars rolled up 375 rushing yards in a 44-17 Jags win in week 14.

Dungy hopes to have most of his injured players back at practice this week. Six players who were hurt in the game two weeks ago against the Denver Broncos missed the week-five win over Tampa Bay.

Some of those players, including safety Bob Sanders, were held out of the game against the Buccaneers in the hope that missing that game followed by the bye week would get them healthy in time for this Monday's showdown with the Jaguars.

Among the others who are expected to return this week are wide receiver Marvin Harrison, running back Joseph Addai, linebacker Freddy Keiaho, backup tight End Ben Utecht and kick returner TJ Rushing.
