Wide receiver LaVon Brazill (foot), cornerback Teddy Williams (quad), tight end Coby Fleener (knee), safety Joe Lefeged (calf), rookie center Khaled Holmes (ankle), and rookie inside linebacker Josh McNary (hamstring) did not practice.
Fleener was wearing a brace on his right knee Wednesday. He will probably be a game-time decision Saturday night when the Colts face Cleveland (7 p.m.) at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Kerwynn Williams getting his chance
With Wednesday’s trade of Carter to Baltimore, rookie running back Kerwynn Williams is expected to see plenty of work carrying the football during the Colts’ final two pre-season games.
Williams, first-year running back Davin Meggett, and fullback Robert Hughes will most likely see extensive playing time in the second half of this week’s game with the Browns and next week’s pre-season finale at Cincinnati.
“I would like to think that Kerwynn is one of the guy’s that’s been somewhat opportunistic as far as getting an opportunity to make a play and then making a play,” first-year offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said Wednesday.
“He’s been able to create his own yards. Even in our scrimmages over the course of training camp, he shows a knack for making the guy miss in the hole and getting more out of plays that in most you would think are starting to break down. He’s done well for himself.”
Starter Vick Ballard and veteran backup Donald Brown will take the bulk of the snaps in the first half of the Cleveland game. Bradshaw might get in for a few plays but isn’t slated to see a substantial workload.
“It’s Coach Pagano’s decision. If he decides to make Ahmad available. Of course we’ll devise a plan for Ahmad to go out and do what we all know that he can do very well and that’s run the football,” Hamilton said.
