(Pittsburgh, PA) - Danny Hrapmann kicked four field goals, including a partially-blocked 22-yarder with 20 seconds remaining that gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a 26-24 preseason win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Steelers jumped out to an early 14-0 lead when Ben Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown on a 57-yard pass play and Ike Taylor returned an Andrew Luck interception 49 yards for another score.

The Colts came back, scoring 17 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 17-14 lead at halftime.

Luck and Donald Brown scored on one-yard runs and Adam Vinatieri hit a 53-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter.

Pittsburgh got all four field goals from Hrapmann in the second half while the Horseshoes' lone score over the final 30 minutes was a four-yard touchdown pass from Drew Stanton to Griff Whalen in the third quarter.

Pittsburgh improves to 1- 1 in the preseason while the Colts fall to 1-1. The Horseshoes are on the road at Washington for preseason game number three on Saturday afternoon.

The Colts came away from Sunday night's loss in Pittsburgh with at least two significant injuries. Defensive end Cory Redding, who missed the preseason opener with St. Louis, left in the first quarter of last night's loss with a knee injury.

Head coach Chuck Pagano did not belive Redding's injury to be serious but Redding is scheduled to undergo an M-R-I today. Wide receiver Austin Collie was knocked out of the game when he was hit in the head by Pittsburgh linebacker Larry Foote.

Collie has a history of concussions and Pagano said they were not going to take any chances with the fourth-year receiver in a preseason game.

Linebacker Robert Mathis left the game early with a shoulder injury, but that injury is not believed to be serious.
