The Colts And Saints Set For A Sunday Night Showdown

Last updated on Friday, October 21, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts look for their first win of the season when they face the Saints on Sunday Night Football in New Orleans.

It is the first time the teams have faced each other since the Saints beat the Colts in Super Bowl 44 two seasons ago in Miami.

The Colts are 0-6 and are coming off a 27-17 loss in Cincinnati last Sunday. New Orleans is 4-2 after losing at Tampa Bay last Sunday.

The Saints and Buccaneers are tied for first place in the NFC South.

The Colts had two players return to practice Thursday while having another one sidelined.

Linebacker Kavell Conner and tight end Brodie Eldridge practiced fully yesterday after sitting out Wednesday's workout with injuries.

Running back Joseph Addai, offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo, linebacker A.J. Edds and defensive tackle Drake Nevis missed their second-straight days of practice.

Guard Ryan Diem was added to the injury list as he did not participate due to his nagging ankle injury.

Defensive end Robert Mathis was given Thursday off to rest while wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez was limited in yesterday's practice due to a groin injury.

Quarterback Kerry Collins remains limited in his participation due to a concussion.
