Colts leave 5 players at home

The Indianapolis Colts announced Saturday night that running back Joseph Addai and linebacker Gary Brackett are among five players who have been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

In addition to Addai and Brackett, running back Mike Hart, linebacker Clint Session and defensive back Justin Tryon were downgraded.

Addai has not played since hurting his left shoulder Oct. 17 against Washington. Brackett and Session both missed last week's game against the Bengals. Brackett has turf toe, while Session is recovering from a dislocated right elbow. Hart has a sprained ankle, and Tryon is out with a foot injury.

Donald Brown, the Colts' 2009 first-round draft choice from UConn, is atop the depth chart at running back. Rookie Pat Angerer has been Brackett's replacement at middle linebacker.

Receiver Austin Collie, who missed last Sunday's win with a concussion, was not among those downgraded. He is listed as questionable along with injured receivers Reggie Wayne and Blair White.
