INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts are keeping two more injured starters out of Sunday regular-season finale against Houston.
Coach Chuck Pagano has ruled out defensive end Cory Redding (quad) and defensive tackle Antonio Johnson (ankle). Earlier this week, Pagano said starting center Samson Satele and backup running back Delone Carter would miss the game with ankle injuries.
Six other players, including receiver Donnie Avery (shoulder), linebacker Kavell Conner (hamstring), right tackle Winston Justice (knee) and safety Tom Zbikowski (knee), are all listed as questionable.
Pagano has said he plans to play his regular starters who are healthy even though it will have no bearing on the Colts' playoff position. Indy (10-5) is already locked into the No. 5 spot.
Houston can clinch the AFC's top seed with a win.
