The Day After; Indianapolis

News and notes on the Indianapolis Colts.

--WR Brandon Stokley still isn't sure when he will be able to return to the lineup. Stokley has been nursing a sore hamstring for the past three weeks. "I probably rushed it a bit too much in practice last week," he says. "So I want to take it easy and see what happens. I'm not setting any time table, but I just want to get back as soon as I possibly can."
   --DT Josh Williams is still having some minor problems with a sprained thumb, which he initially hurt in practice last week. He played with the injury against Tennessee and is expected to be available this week for the Jacksonville game.
   --DT Dwight Freeney had a problem with a bruised shin after the Cleveland game but returned to start against the Titans on Sunday. Freeney tweaked his ankle in the Tennessee game and did not practice Monday. The injury is not serious and he should be available for Jacksonville.
   --WR Brad Pyatt drew the interest of Colts coach Tony Dungy in training camp with his kick and punt return skills. Pyatt, who played at Northern Colorado, went undrafted after declaring himself eligible for the supplemental draft last summer. The rookie has now become Indianapolis' primary kick and punt returner, averaging 29.0 yards per kick return and 10.8 yards per punt return through the first two games. "There's just something about him that I really like," Dungy said. "He makes things happen out there and he has made good decisions so far."
   --Rookie SS Mike Doss has drawn favorable comparisons to Tampa Bay safety John Lynch. While it may not be fair to make such comparisons so early in Doss' NFL career, Dungy can understand why the subject has come up. "They're both really smart football players," the Colts coach said. "Mike is still learning while John has been around for awhile. But they both have a good sense of the game and for what's happening out there."
