Colts safety Bob Sanders sat out Thursday's afternoon practice but remains hopeful of being able to start against Sunday at Denver.
Sanders has missed the past four games as he recovered from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. He was able to do some running Monday and took part in his first full practice Wednesday.
Although he experienced some soreness in his knee prior to the Thursday's workout, he thinks he will be able to play against the Broncos.
"I got a little work (Wednesday) and it was good to be back. It felt real good. I started off kind of slow, but as the day went on, I think I did pretty good," he said.
"(The knee is) kinda sore. We thought that it would be like that. Took (Thursday) off and just relaxed, give it another day to heal up a little bit more. But I think it will be fine for this weekend."
--S Mike Doss, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the fourth quarter of last week's win over Washington, is out and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
--WR Brandon Stokley is recovering from a sprained left knee that he injured against Tennessee on Oct. 8. He has not practiced for the past two weeks and will be sidelined against the Broncos.
--LB Keith O'Neil incurred a sprained left ankle in the Washington game and has not practiced all week. He will not play this week against Denver.
--DT Montae Reagor is still hospitalized after undergoing surgery Wednesday to repair a broken orbital socket near his left eye. He was injured Sunday when his SUV was hit and flipped as he was driving from the Colts' offices to the RCA Dome prior to the game against Washington.
--DT Anthony "Booger" McFarland is expected to get his second consecutive start this week. McFarland was acquired from Tampa Bay in a trade last week. He made his first start for the Colts against Washington due to DT Montae Reagor's traffic accident.
