Dungy To Rest Players This Sunday

Last updated on Wednesday, December 24, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts were back at practice Tuesday as they get ready for their regular-season finale with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Head Coach Tony Dungy met with the media yesterday and did not disclose his specific plans for Sunday's game except to say he will rest some of his players. He did say that linebacker Gary Brackett will miss Sunday's game and that backup quarterback Jim Sorgi will see some playing time.

Dungy also said that he is eager to get wide receivers Roy Hall and Pierre Garcon some playing time on Sunday.

Running back Dominic Rhodes came out of last Thursday's win at Jacksonville a little banged up and is a good candidate to sit this weekend. Dungy says Joseph Addai is doing fine and will probably start with Chad Simpson serving as Addai's backup at running back.

Dungy also says that Marvin Harrison is doing fine after missing the Jacksonville game with a hamstring injury.

Both the Colts and the Titans have locked up their playoff positions and can not improve them with a win Sunday. The 11-and-4 Colts have the fifth seed in the AFC while the Titans are the number-one seed at 13-and-2.
