Colts down to 3d RB

There weren't any major surprises among the Eagles inactives for Sunday's Colts game -- unless you count rookie linebacker Keenan Clayton dressing for the first time -- but Indianapolis was chock full of changes.

Colts running backs Joseph Addai and Mike Hart will not dress, which means third stringer Donald Brown will start. Andre Brown was added to the game day roster and will back up Donald Brown.

Quarterback Peyton Manning will have his top three receivers -- Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie -- at his disposal, but he will be without Anthony Gonzalez, who was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury on Saturday.

Tight end Brody Eldridge is inactive. With Dallas Clark already on the shelf, the Colts had to turn guard Jacques McClendon into a tight end -- his number was switched from 65 to 80 -- for Sunday's game. He'll backup starter Jacob Tamme.

On  defense, starters Jerraud Powers (cornerback), Bob Sanders (safety) and Clint Session (linebacker) are out. Reserve cornerback Justin Tryon and defensive tackle Antonio Johnson will also not dress.

As for the Eagles, wide receiver Chad Hall, running back Joique Bell, cornerback Ellis Hobbs, defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, tackle King Dunlap, guard Reggie Wells, tight end Clay Harbor and Mike Kafka (third quarterback) are inactive.

Clayton and running back Jerome Harrison will dress for the first time as Eagles.
