Colts Seek First Home Victory This Weekend

Last updated on Thursday, October 9, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts are looking for their first home win of 2008 when they host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The Colts are 0-and-4 at Lucas Oil Stadium with a pair of preseason losses and two more regular season defeats.

The Colts will be without starting cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Sunday. Hayden suffered a knee injury in last weekend's win at Houston.

Head Coach Tony Dungy was unsure on Wednesday about the status of cornerback Marlin Jackson, wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez and defensive end Dwight Freeney. Jackson hurt an ankle, Gonzalez suffered a concussion and Freeney sustained a hamstring injury against the Texans.

Brackett Receives AFC Defensive Player Honors

Colts linebacker Gary Brackett is the AFC defensive player of the week. Brackett's 68-yard fumble return for a touchdown was a key play in the horseshoes' come-from-behind win at Houston last Sunday.

Texans quarterback sage Rosenfels fumbled after being hit by Marlon Jackson and Raheem Brock with Brackett's return pulling the Colts to within three points at 27-24 with 3:36 remaining in the game. The winning score came following another Rosenfels fumble, this time caused by Robert Mathis.

It is the second time in his career that Brackett has been honored with player of the week honors.
