Troy Walters was held out of Friday's practice to give his aching groin some rest in hopes that he'll be ready for action on Sunday.
Walters was confident that the problem wouldn't sideline him, saying, "I'll rest today, rest tomorrow and be ready to go Sunday."
If he can't play, the Colts have indicated that WR Marvin Harrison would likely be tabbed to handle punt returns.
TE Ben Utecht, who had missed practice earlier this week with flu-like symptoms returned to the field on Thursday, but the Colts lost backup LB Gilbert Gardner with a similar problem on Friday. The Colts are hopeful it's just a 24-hour bug.
The only player who appears to be in real danger of missing Sunday's matchup is rookie defensive back Kelvin Hayden due to a sprained ankle. Veteran Von Hutchins would step in for him when the Colts load up the field with extra defensive backs.
The only Steeler whose status was in doubt for Sunday, linebacker and special teams player James Harrison, missed another day of practice and appears to be out, despite being listed as doubtful on the official report. WR/KR Quincy Morgan was put on injured reserve last week, ending his season.
All other players for the Colts and Steelers practiced on Friday.
