The absence of Trent Richardson due to injury set up Colts backfield mate Ahmad Bradshaw for a big game on the ground Sunday in Pittsburgh. But the team fell behind to stay early, giving Bradshaw few opportunities.
Colts cornerback Vontae Davis has recovered quickly enough from a knee injury sustained Sunday in Pittsburgh to return to practice Thursday, the team has announced. Chuck Pagano has declared him "ready to go," per the Anderson Herald Bulletin.
The Colts listed seven players on the final injury report for Week 8 against the Steelers. Reggie Wayne (elbow) was the only player on the list ruled out for Sunday's game. Trent Richardson (hamstring) and Jack Doyle (knee) were deemed questionable.
Chuck Pagano revealed that the absence of veteran wideout Reggie Wayne from Thursday practice was merely to provide rest and that he could have participated otherwise, per the Anderson Herald Bulletin.
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday wide receiver Nate Washington will be held out of practice this week after suffering a shoulder injury Sunday against the Texans. However, he should be OK to return after the bye in time for Tennessee's next game Week 10 against the Ravens.
