Right tackle Ryan Diem (ankle) was added to the Colts injury report Thursday and did not practice. The transcript of Tony Dungy's daily press session, held before practice, included no mention of the injury.

Indianapolis has used eight linemen in four different starting combinations this season because of injuries. Diem is the only line member who's started every game at the same spot.

In other injury news, cornerback Kelvin Hayden (hamstring) remained out and Dungy indicated the Colts' starting corners at Pittsburgh could be the same as they were in the win over New England, Tim Jennings and Keiwan Ratliff.

"We're still working it out, but I would think it may be the same as it was last week," Dungy said.

Dante Hughes, out last week with an ankle injury, is not on the injury report and should also be back in the mix.
