Even though the Colts released another long injury list this week, there was some good news if you were paying attention and noticed three starters who weren't on the list this week -- DE Dwight Freeney, LB Gilbert Gardner and DT Montae Reagor.
For Reagor, that was a big step because he had been sitting out some Wednesday practices in the past due to a sore knee. Backup quarterback Jim Sorgi, who had been on the injury lists over the past few weeks due to a shoulder problem, also wasn't included on this week's report.
Rookie running back Dede Dorsey was upgraded to probable status, making it possible that he could be on the active roster for the first time this year. The odds of that increased earlier this week when the Colts released RB Ran Carthon, leaving them with just Dorsey and the Colts running back tandem of Dominic Rhodes and Joseph Addai on the roster.
As we reported earlier in the week, DT Corey Simon isn't likely to see action until after the bye week, and he's already listed as doubtful.
New to the Colts report this week are: CB Marlin Jackson (concussion), OG Dylan Gandy (abdomen), and DT Dan Klecko (lower back). MLB Gary Brackett has a thigh injury after being listed with a calf injury last week, and TE Ben Utecht has a groin problem after recovering from a concussion last week.
Four starters for the Jets are listed as questionable and didn't practice Wednesday, including star receiver Laveraneus Coles. Four other starters were listed as probable.
