(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts begin preparing for Sunday's game with the Jacksonville Jaguars when they return to practice this afternoon.
The Colts are 9-and-2 and hold a one-game lead over the 8-and-3 Jaguars in the AFC South. A victory on Sunday would give the horseshoes a two-game lead and the tiebreaker over the Jags with four games left to play in the regular season.
The Colts have won every championship in the South since the division was created in 2002. Indianapolis has won four of the last five games in the series, including a 29-7 win in Jacksonville on October 22nd.
Colts Coach Tony Dungy says today's practice should give him an idea of who will be available when they host the Jaguars on Sunday.
The Colts did make a roster move on Tuesday, releasing defensive end Simeon Rice and re-signing fullback Luke Lawton. Rice was claimed off waivers from Denver two weeks ago in the wake of the season-ending foot injury to pro-bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney.
Rice, a three-time Pro Bowl participant, had one sack in two games with the Colts. Lawton has played in six games for the Colts this season, primarily on special teams. He was released following the colts' win in Jacksonville six weeks ago.
