Donnie Avery, Cory Redding out
INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts receiver Donnie Avery won't get a chance to face his old team after all.
Indianapolis says two key free-agent acquisitions -- Avery and defensive end Cory Redding -- will not play in the preseason opener Sunday against St. Louis. Both were injured in practice during the past week.
Avery is out with a bruised left thigh. Redding injured his left elbow, but the Colts have not disclosed the severity of the injury.
