Default Colts notebook / Bye week bodes well for injured players

Colts notebook
Bye week bodes well for injured players
By Phil Richards
October 9, 2007

Playing without six starters, his primary return man and a veteran backup receiver is not something Tony Dungy would like to get used to, and the coach was happy to report Monday that he doesn't believe it will be necessary.
Because the Indianapolis Colts have their bye this week, wide receiver Marvin Harrison (bruised knee), running back Joseph Addai (bruised chest), tight end Ben Utecht (concussion), safety Bob Sanders (bruised ribs) and linebacker Freddy Keiaho (concussion) have another week to heal. So do return man T.J. Rushing and backup receiver Aaron Moorehead (back).
"I think most of those guys probably would be listed as probable this week and by next week should be even better," Dungy said a day after the battered Colts bruised Tampa Bay 33-14.
Dungy said that had Sunday been a playoff game, Addai and Harrison might have been able to play.
Linebacker Rob Morris, the sixth starter injured Sept. 30 against Denver, is out for the season after knee surgery.
Tough crowd

All four members of the AFC South won Sunday to push the division's record to 14-4, best in the NFL.
Three of those losses have been inflicted by one another, and AFC South members have permitted an average of only 15.9 points, fewer than any other division. The NFC East is next at 18.9.
Tennessee (3-1) ranks fifth in total defense, the Colts (5-0) sixth, Jacksonville (3-1) seventh and Houston (3-2) 11th.
The Colts are a leg up on the rest of the division with victories at Tennessee and Houston.
"We'll have another big division road game in two weeks, but there aren't going to be a lot of people that go into Tennessee and Houston and get wins," Dungy said. "I'm glad we got them and got them out of the way."
The Colts next play Oct. 22 on "Monday Night Football" at Jacksonville.
Glory calling

Kenton Keith's family and friends were almost as busy as he was Sunday.
"I got back to the locker room after the game. I had 87 missed calls," Keith said. "I think I might have called three people back. I couldn't do all that."
Filling in for Addai, Keith rushed 28 times for 121 yards and two touchdowns in his first NFL start.
He plans to go home to Omaha, Neb., after the Colts conclude bye week practice Thursday. He is unlikely to have to buy dinner, particularly if he stops at Buffalo Wild Wings.
"They said I had the whole city watching the game," Keith said. "They didn't show it out there, so they said like half the city was at Buffalo Wild Wings trying to get in. They said I sold out Buffalo Wild Wings and didn't know it."

The Colts opened the roster spot filled by wide receiver/return man Craphonso Thorpe by placing wide receiver Roy Hall (shoulder separation) on injured reserve, ending his season. . . . The Colts have won their past 10 games, including playoffs. That's the league's longest current streak and the Colts' fourth of at least eight games over the past three-plus seasons. . . . The Colts allowed a league-worst 173 rushing yards a game last season. They are allowing 105.4 this season.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
