Sanders, Proehl likely out; Vinatieri 'probable' for finale

INDIANAPOLIS --Safety Bob Sanders and newly acquired wide
receiver Ricky Proehl are likely to miss the Colts regular season
finale Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.


"Ricky probably won't go and Bob Sanders is the same way. But
we haven't ruled them totally out yet,'' Colts coach Tony Dungy
said after Friday's practice.

Also, kicker Adam Vinatieri missed Friday's practice. Colts
spokesman Craig Kelley said the kicker has an injured knee but was
probable for Sunday's game.

Sanders has played in four games this season, the last one three
weeks ago. He is still recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his
right knee in September.

Proehl was added to the roster to an attempt to bolster the
team's depth at wide receiver. But he has been bothered by a
strained hamstring for the past two weeks.

Linebacker Rob Morris missed Friday's practice with a strained
upper leg muscle, but Dungy expects him to play on Sunday.

Defensive back Marlin Jackson and outside linebacker Gilbert
Gardner, who have been battling flu symptoms, both returned to
practice Friday.

Cornerback Kelvin Hayden has been cleared to play after
sustaining a concussion in practice Wednesday. Tight end Dallas
Clark (knee) practiced for a third straight day and will see
limited playing time Sunday.

Offensive guard Ryan Lilja (knee) also has been ruled out of the
Miami game with a strained knee that he injured last week at
Houston.
