INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indianapolis practiced without eight-time Pro Bowl receiver Marvin Harrison and three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney on Wednesday although both are expected to play Sunday at Carolina.
Harrison has been recuperating from a bruised left knee and spent the last part of Monday night's game on the sideline because the coaching staff had put him on a play count.
Freeney, this week's AFC defensive player of the week, was held out because of a team decision, according to the practice report.
Starting left tackle Tony Ugoh, who has been battling an ankle injury, also missed Wednesday's light workout. Ugoh was replaced by Charlie Johnson for the second half of Monday night's game.
Still, Colts coach Tony Dungy believes all three will play this weekend and the only concern is backup safety Matt Giordano, who injured his hamstring late in Monday's game.
``I think we'll be fine with the exception of Giordano,'' Dungy said. ``I don't think he'll be ready to practice much this week, but he said that by the end of the week he should be ready if we rest him up.''
Dungy said the Colts would not practice in pads this week and that he was trying to give some players extra rest because of the short week.
