Colts Consistency On Offense Needed For Win

Last updated on Friday, October 10, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts will try to get their first win in their new home on Sunday when the Baltimore Ravens come to Lucas Oil Stadium.

Both teams enter Sunday's game with 2-and-2 records. The Colts will need to find some consistency on offense as they face off against the league's best defense. The Ravens are ranked number one in passing defense, rushing defense and total defense.

Baltimore also owns the fourth-best rushing offense in the NFL and will try to take advantage of a Colts run defense that ranks dead last in the league.

Colts Injury Report

Colts cornerback Marlin Jackson says he expects to play against the Ravens on Sunday. Jackson missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury but was back on the field yesterday.

The Colts are already missing their other starting corner as Kelvin Hayden is out after suffering a knee injury in Houston last Sunday.

Starting safety Bob Sanders is also out following a high ankle sprain and arthroscopic knee surgery.

Among the others who did not practice on Thursday were defensive end Dwight Freeney, linebacker Clint Session and guard Jamey Richard.

Depth Chart Update

The Colts released kick returner Justin Forsett earlier in the week and Head Coach Tony Dungy says Keiwan Ratliff will handle the punt return duties this weekend with rookie Pierre Garcon returning kickoffs.
