The Facts: HC Tony Dungy has ruled three players out of Sunday’s regular-season finale, a list that could grow by week’s end. Dungy said middle linebacker Gary Brackett, outside linebacker Freddy Keiaho and Rhodes will not play against Tennessee.
Diehards Line: Rhodes likely would have played if it was a playoff game, but Dungy wants them to rest. “Dom’s down a little bit, so he’s definitely out of this game,” Dungy said. It’s become almost an annual routine for the Colts, who find themselves wrapping up the season with another meaningless home game. A victory at Jacksonville last week locked them into No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs. Look for other starters -- including Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison and perhaps Joseph Addai -- to sit out of play very limited roles.
