Dungy: Less Penalties Needed From Both Sides

Last updated on Tuesday, October 14, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts will not rest on their laurels following Sunday’s 31-3 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Head Coach Tony Dungy had his weekly news conference on Monday and says that while he was happy with the performances on all three phases against the Ravens, the Colts still have more work to do.

Dungy's main cause for concern was penalties. The horseshoes committed eleven penalties for 84 yards, one of which wiped out a 63-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to Reggie Wayne.

Running Back Depth Chart Takes A Hit

The Colts could be looking for a running back after losing both Joseph Addai and Mike Hart in Sunday's win. Tony Dungy was confident that Addai's hamstring injury was not serious but he did not know about his availability this Sunday at Green Bay.

Hart's knee injury is believed to be more serious. The rookie out of Michigan underwent an MRI on Monday and Dungy believed the injury to be significant. The Colts finished the game with Dominic Rhodes as their lone healthy back.

Dungy says if the Colts do sign a running back, it will be somebody familiar with the Colts' system. Possible candidates include Chad Simpson, who is on the Colts' practice squad, and Clifton Dawson, who was with the team in training camp.

The Colts are 3-and-2 as they face the Packers this Sunday in Green Bay.
