TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -The Indianapolis Colts will be without 14 players when they face Washington in Sunday night's Hall of Fame Game.
Among those not scheduled to make the trip are two-time league MVP Peyton Manning, record-setting receiver Marvin Harrison, 2007 defensive player of the year Bob Sanders, former league sacks champion Dwight Freeney and linebacker Philip Wheeler, a third-round draft pick who is scheduled to have knee surgery.
Wheeler injured his knee earlier this week, then continued to practice. Coach Tony Dungy expects Wheeler to miss at least a couple of weeks.
The Colts also will be without defensive back Michael Coe, a second-year player who injured his knee in Friday afternoon's practice. Dungy did not give a timetable for Coe's return and said he may need surgery.
``It's not going to be anything where he'll be back in the next couple of weeks,'' Dungy said Saturday morning before the team left for Canton.
Indy also re-signed kicker Adam Crossett, who was waived July 25, to help Adam Vinatieri rest his right leg, and waived guard Tala Esera.
