Colts Rest Before Returning To Practice Field

Last updated on Tuesday, December 2, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts will have another day off before returning to the practice field on Wednesday.

The Colts will face the 1-10-and-1 Cincinnati Bengals Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Colts ran their winning streak to five games with a hard-fought 10-6 win over the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday.

The Bengals have dropped their last two games. They are coming off a 34-3 loss to Baltimore last Sunday in Cincinnati.

The Colts expect to be without center Jeff Saturday, defensive tackle Keyunta Dawson and linebacker Gary Brackett when they host the Bengals on Sunday.

Head Coach Tony Dungy expects Saturday to miss at least this week with a calf injury sustained against San Diego. Dawson and Brackett both left last Sunday's game in Cleveland. Dawson has a hamstring injury and could miss a couple of games.

Dungy said he had not heard the results of Brackett's x-rays when he met with the media on Monday but said it was "highly doubtful" that he would play against Cincinnati.

Dungy thinks safety Bob Sanders has a good chance to play this Sunday and that Matt Giordano, Freddy Keiaho and Tyjuan Hagler, who were banged up against the Browns, should be okay to play against the Bengals.
