Dungy Addresses Colts Injuries

Last updated on Friday, January 2, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts will head west to face the San Diego Chargers Saturday night in an AFC wild card playoff game at Qualcomm Stadium.

Colts Coach Tony Dungy addressed his team's injury situation on Thursday. Middle linebacker Gary Brackett will miss his fifth consecutive game tomorrow night with a cracked fibula suffered against Cleveland on November 30th.

Dungy says Freddy Keiaho will likely move from the outside to take Brackett's spot in the middle with Tyjuan Hagler getting the start in Keiaho's normal position.

Dungy also says that Dan Federkeil has spent this week's practice working at right guard in place of Mike Pollak, who is nursing an ankle injury.

The San Diego Chargers have injury concerns entering Saturday's playoff game with the Colts.

Ladanian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates missed practice on Thursday. Tomlinson is nursing a strained groin but is expected to play Saturday.

The Chargers signed veteran running back Michael Bennett at mid-season, but Bennett has not dressed for San Diego in the eight games he has been with the team. Bennett is expected to be active for the chargers on Saturday night as insurance in case Tomlinson is not at 100 percent.

Gates' status is more up in the air as has been slowed by a high-ankle sprain.
