Colts leave 3 players at home

– The Colts are leaving three players home as they head to Jacksonville.

Cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Jerraud Powers, and tight end Coby Fleener did not travel Wednesday. Interim coach and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians already had said none of them would play.

Losing Davis (knee) and Powers (toe) leaves Indianapolis (5-3) without either starting cornerback against the Jaguars (1-7). Cassius Vaughn replaced Davis in the starting lineup Sunday against Miami, and Darius Butler replaced Powers when he got hurt during the Dolphins game.

Fleener is out with a left shoulder injury.

Five other players listed as questionable did make the trip – receiver Donnie Avery (hip), running back Donald Brown (knee), right tackle Winston Justice (knee), outside linebacker Robert Mathis (back) and center Samson Satele (back).
