Colts deactivate 2 starting linebackers against Titans
September 16, 2007

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Indianapolis Colts deactivated starting linebackers Freddy Keiaho and Rob Morris for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Keiaho, who played with a dislocated right elbow last week against New Orleans, made seven tackles and had an interception against the Saints. Tyjuan Hagler made his first NFL start in Keiaho's place. Hagler appeared in nine games in 2006, playing mostly special teams.

Morris had been listed as questionable with a rib injury. Former Titans linebacker Rocky Boiman started in his place.

Being short-handed at linebacker could hurt against the Titans, who boast one of the best rushing attacks in the league.

The Titans combined for 433 rushing yards last season against the Colts and are coming off a 282-yard performance in a season-opening win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Titans deactivated defensive end Bryce Fisher, who was acquired in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday. Tennessee also deactivated defensive tackle Randy Starks, who did not play for the first time since his rookie season in 2004. Starks' absence leaves open more playing time for Corey Simon, a former Colts lineman who was picked up Aug. 28.

Eli Manning starts despite injury
September 16, 2007

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Eli Manning will start at quarterback for the New York Giants against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday after bruising his shoulder a week ago.

Manning's status had been uncertain because of his injury against Dallas last Sunday. The Giants announced about an hour before gametime there would be no changes to their starting lineup, meaning Manning would start his 41st consecutive regular-season game.

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora also was in the lineup after bruising a knee in the 45-35 loss to Dallas.

Manning walked on the field at Giants Stadium a little more than two hours before kickoff. He threw softly with backup Jared Lorenzen about 15 minutes later and then started throwing to his receivers.

Manning threw a variety of passes, including a couple of 20-yard crossing patterns and some fade passes to the corner of the end zone. He later spent time talking with Packers quarterback Brett Favre.
