INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indianapolis tight end Ben Utecht returned to practice Thursday, a day after sitting out with an injured shoulder.
Rookie outside linebacker Clint Session (ankle) and wide receiver Craphonso Thorpe (illness) also returned, and the Colts said all three might play Sunday against Houston at the RCA Dome.
Sitting out Thursday's workout were safety Antoine Bethea (knee), defensive tackle Raheem Brock (rib), offensive tackle Ryan Diem (knee), rookie outside linebacker Ramon Guzman (foot), wide receiver Marvin Harrison (knee), cornerback Tim Jennings (team decision), defensive end Robert Mathis (knees), and safety Bob Sanders (team decision).
Sanders usually sits out one practice a week. He and Jennings both are expected to be available Sunday. Guzman's status should be updated before Sunday. The others aren't expected to play.
Coach Tony Dungy has said he doesn't plan to rest his starters before the playoffs if they're healthy.
``I envision some guys playing the whole game, other guys getting rest,'' Dungy said. ``I envision some of our younger guys and second-team guys in there with the first team. I don't think it will be just wholesale substitutions. We want to get some guys in there in the heat of battle with guys that they may be playing with in the playoffs.''
