Four players sit out at Colts practice
By Mike Wells
INDIANAPOLIS – Here’s Wednesday’s practice report for the Indianapolis Colts:
Havili had some concussion symptoms after the Nov. 14 game at Tennessee. He must complete the NFL’s concussion protocol before he’s cleared to play.
Landry wore a walking boot on his right foot during the media portion of the open locker-room period. He said he’ll be “fine” when asked about the boot.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said rookie Bjoern Werner will start at linebacker in place of the suspended Erik Walden in Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
“He’s coming back off the injury,” Pagano said about Werner missing three games earlier this season. “He’s knocking the rust off. Again, he can be and will be a good edge setter in the run game and he gives you pass-rush capabilities.”
Pagano declined to talk about Walden’s suspension for head-butting Titans tight end Delanie Walker. Walden’s appeal was denied Tuesday.
