Harrison Questionable For Thursday Night

Last updated on Thursday, December 18, 2008

(JACKSONVILLE, FL) - The Indianapolis Colts try to lock up a playoff berth tonight as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville.

The Colts are 10-and-4 and are riding a seven-game winning streak. A victory over the Jaguars tonight would give the Colts an AFC wild card berth and the number-five seed in the playoffs.

The Jaguars are 5-and-9 and have been out of playoff contention for a couple of weeks. Jacksonville snapped a four-game losing streak with their win at home over the Green Bay Packers last Sunday.

Colts Injury Report

Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison is listed as "questionable" for tonight's game with the Jaguars, but The Indianapolis Star is reporting that he did not make the trip to Jacksonville with the team. Harrison suffered a hamstring injury against the Detroit Lions last weekend and underwent an MRI on Wednesday.

The availability of running back Joseph Addai and safety Bob Sanders will likely be determined at gametime. Addai suffered a shoulder injury against Cincinnati two weeks ago while Sanders has been hampered with a right knee injury for most of the season.

Linebacker Gary Brackett is the only Colts player listed as "out" for tonight's game as he recovers from a cracked fibula.

Four Colts Named To AFC Alternate List

Dungy announced Wednesday that Sanders, tight end Dallas Clark, center Jeff Saturday and punter Hunter Smith were named as alternates to the AFC Pro Bowl team. Dungy said he did not know whether they were first, second or third alternates.

If Clark and Smith receive invitations as replacements, it will mark their first appearances on the Pro Bowl roster. Saturday and Sanders have been to the Pro Bowl in the past and have been hampered by injuries for much of this season.

Quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Reggie Wayne and defensive ends Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis are already on the AFC team.
