INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison might return for Sunday's game at Buffalo after sitting out last weekend with a strained right hamstring.

Harrison on Friday took part in his first full practice since he injured his leg during the Nov. 9 game at Jacksonville. A final decision on whether he will play won't be made until Saturday.

"I feel good," Harrison said after Friday's workout. "But we'll have to see what happens. I just don't want to do anything stupid to reinjure it. But right now, it feels real good."

Harrison is the top receiver for the Colts (8-2) with 56 receptions for 777 yards and seven touchdowns.

Colts coach Tony Dungy said he was optimistic about Harrison playing this week.

"The question is do you take the risk, and how much and how many plays and do you start him?" Dungy said. "He's basically only practiced once."
