Colts Taking Holiday Off, Host Titans On Sunday

Last updated on Thursday, December 25, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts are taking the holiday off following two days of practice.

The Colts host the Tennessee Titans in the regular season finale Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Running back Dominic Rhodes will not play Sunday after injuring his ribs last Thursday against Jacksonville. Joseph Addai is healthy and is expected to get a few carries before giving way to Chad Simpson at running back.

Linebacker Freddy Keiaho will also be rested Sunday while linebacker Gary Brackett will miss the game as he recovers from his broken leg. Brackett says he is optimistic that he will be ready by the start of the playoffs next weekend.

Quarterback Peyton Manning is the AFC offensive player of the week. Manning completed 29 of 34 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns in the Colts' 31-24 win at Jacksonville last Thursday. He started last week's game with the Jaguars by completing his first 17 passes.

Manning is just 93 yards shy of 4,000 for the season. It would mark the ninth time in his career he would reach the 4,000-yard milestone, but Manning says he is not thinking about it. He could be removed early from Sunday's game against Tennessee before reaching 4,000 yards.

Head Coach Tony Dungy has said that backup quarterback Jim Sorgi will see some action against the Titans.
