Colts CB Powers misses practice
By Paul Kuharsky
INDIANAPOLIS -- Eighteen players are on the first Colts injury report of the week.
Three were bigger concerns than the rest.
Rookie cornerback Jerraud Powers didn’t practice with a foot injury.
Safety Antoine Bethea (back) and tight end Dallas Clark (illness) were limited.
If Powers couldn’t start at right corner, rookie Jacob Lacey would work in his place, with Tim Jennings moving into the nickel package.
These players were full participants in practice but also made the report: Running back Joseph Addai (shoulder), defensive end Ervin Baldwin (shin), linebacker Gary Brackett (calf), safety Melvin Bullitt (shoulder), tackle Ryan Diem (elbow), defensive end Dwight Freeney (foot), linebacker Cody Glenn (back), defensive tackle Antonio Johnson (shoulder), tackle Charlie Johnson (foot), defensive end Robert Mathis (knee), guard Jamey Richard (shoulder), tight end Jacob Tamme (ankle), tackle Tony Ugoh (knee), kicker Adam Vinatieri (right hip) and receiver Reggie Wayne (knee).
Three Jets missed practice: defensive end Shaun Ellis (hand/knee), running back Thomas Jones (not injury related) and running back Tony Richardson (rib).
