Day Off For Colts Squad, Back To Work Wednesday

Last updated on Tuesday, September 16, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts will take today off and return to practice Wednesday as they get ready for Sunday afternoon’s game with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Colts evened their record at 1-and-1 with an 18-15 comeback win at Minnesota last Sunday. They are a game behind first-place Tennessee in the AFC south. The Jaguars are bringing up the rear in the south after losing their first two games of the season.

The Jaguars are expected to try to run on the Colts with Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew, but injuries have decimated Jacksonville's offensive line. The Jags have lost starting guards Vince Manuwai and Maurice Williams to season-ending injuries.

Colts Injury Report

Head Coach Tony Dungy had no updates on injured left tackle Tony Ugoh and safety Bob Sanders during his weekly news conference on Monday. Ugoh left with a groin injury while Sanders was carted off with an ankle injury during Sunday's win at Minnesota.

Dungy did express confidence that Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday and tight end Dallas Clark could be available this Sunday against Jacksonville. Saturday tore an MCL in a preseason game with Buffalo on August 24th while Clark suffered a knee injury in the season-opening loss to Chicago on September 7th.
