INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Strong side linebacker Rob Morris, who has missed the last two games with a strained abdominal muscle, will be back in the starting lineup Sunday for the Indianapolis Colts in their home game against the Denver Broncos.
Morris was limited in his return to practice Wednesday, but participated fully Thursday and Friday.
Offensive linemen Tony Ugoh, Charlie Johnson and Ryan Lilja, all nursing nagging injuries, took part in Friday's workout.
Tight end Dallas Clark is expected to play, but did not practice after slightly hurting his knee during Thursday's workouts.
Cornerback Marlin Jackson has been limited in practice all week, nursing a bruised quadriceps, but was expected to start if he doesn't aggravate the injury.
``He's pretty confident that he's going to play,'' coach Tony Dungy said. ``But it will probably be a game-time decision watching him run.''
Among those who will not play this week are wide receiver Roy Hall (shoulder), defensive end Jeff Charleston (knee), and rookie outside linebacker Clint Session (hamstring).
The Colts also signed rookie running back Clifton Dawson, releasing second-year offensive tackle Michael Toudouze to make room.
Dawson, who played for Harvard, was signed by Indianapolis as an undrafted free agent last spring but was cut at the end of training camp.
He joined the Cincinnati Bengals and spent time on their active roster and practice squad until being released last week.
