Colts Take On Bengals Thursday

The Indianapolis Colts will look to get their current roster pared down even further when they host the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday from Lucas Oil Stadium.

Thursday’s battle marks the 19th preseason meeting between the clubs in the past 26 years. The lone time the teams have not met in preseason since 1992 was in 2000. This is the eighth consecutive year and the ninth time in the last decade the clubs have battled to conclude preseason play. Indianapolis reaches Thursday’s game with after dropping a 37-17 home decision to San Francisco (8/15), falling, 34-21, to Buffalo (at Toronto, 8/19) and dropping a 59-24 contest last Thursday at Green Bay. Cincinnati dropped a 16-7 decision to Dallas on August 8 in the Hall of Fame Game. The Bengals earned two home wins (33-24 over Denver, 8/15; 22-9 over Philadelphia, 8/20), then lost last Saturday at Buffalo, 35-20.

There are several players who didn’t participate in the Green Bay game and their status for Thursday’s contest isn’t known as of this posting. They are: QB Tom Brandstater, TE Dallas Clark, C Jeff Saturday, OTs Charlie Johnson and James Williams, WR Austin Collie, RBs Devin Moore and Allen Patrick, DBs Jerraud Powers, Glenn Sharpe and Kevin Thomas.
