Addai has missed the past eight games due to a nerve injury in his left shoulder, yet he's still the team's No. 2 rusher (406 yards). He was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, and he said he got through it without a setback. He said if the game was Thursday, he would play.
Addai's improvement comes as the Colts deal with losing wide receiver Austin Collie for the season. Collie sustained a concussion Sunday against Jacksonville and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Coach Jim Caldwell said Addai's versatility and ability to protect quarterback Peyton Manning make him valuable to the team as it goes for a playoff spot.
