--OT Ryan Diem suffered a high ankle sprain on the last play of Sunday's game with Jacksonville and will most likely miss several days pf practice. Diem, who had an MRI performed on his ankle Monday, is not expected to play against New Orleans this week.
--OT Adam Meadows suffered a knee sprain
against the Jaguars. Meadows' availability for this week's game with the Saints
will be determined later in the week.
--There is an outside
chance that rookie OT Makoa Freitas could be promoted from the practice squad
this week. Freitas, one of the Colts' sixth-round draft picks last spring, would
help give Indianapolis better depth along the offensive line in the wake of
injuries to Ryan Diem and Adam Meadows.
--DE Dwight Freeney may
get the okay to play Sunday at New Orleans. Freeney sat out the Jacksonville
game with ankle and abdominal injuries.
--OG Steve Scuillo is
expected to play this week despite an on-going problem with turf toe. Scuillo
initially suffered the injury two weeks ago but has been able to start against
Tennessee and Jacksonville.
-WR Brandon Stokley's status for the
New Orleans remains iffy. Stokey has been sidelined with a pulled hamstring
since the start of the season.
--RB Edgerrin James has now
rushed for 5,176 yards during his career. He has moved past Lenny Moore (5,174)
into fourth place on the franchise's all-time list. James' next target is Eric
Dickerson with 5,194 yards.
--OT Tarik Glenn made his 99th
consecutive start against Jacksonville. That is the second-longest active streak
in the NFL to start a career.
