No. 88 should be back tonight for the Indianapolis Colts.

Eight-time Pro Bowl receiver Marvin Harrison wants to make his 2008 preseason debut against Carolina -- he practiced twice in a day at training camp Thursday for the first time and is cleared to play, coach Tony Dungy said.


The decision is a change in plans from Thursday night, when Dungy suggested Harrison, 35, would not play until the next week or possibly Aug. 24 in the receiver's return from offseason knee injury.

"He actually wanted to work those two practices, made it through OK, felt good (and) wants to get a little bit (of game action) in," Dungy said after Friday's one-hour camp workout at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

Linebacker Gary Brackett, the defensive captain, returned to practice the past two days from a groin injury and could play in his first 2008 preseason game, too.

"They are cleared to play so we'll see," Dungy said. "They'll probably go with that first group."

Asked if Harrison is on a specific play count, considering the Colts have been cautious with his return, Dungy said:

"Everybody is on a play count, so he should be able to play with the first group."

Harrison missed 11 games last season and could not finish a playoff loss to San Diego. It was the fewest games played in a season in his 12-year career.http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080809/SPORTS03/808090449 The game is on WTTV @ 7:30 tonight

Wear something that is visible that has a Colts logo on it.

Are you literally not allowed or are you just a coward? ;)

I don't think it'd be a big deal if he just wore a hat or something, but who knows if I'd want to if the wives were the ones that got us tickets......

Eh.

I'd agree. I mean he got free tickets and will be sitting with the other teams wives. It wouldn't be polite to wear something with the Colts on it. It's preseason so it's not like the game means much anyways.

They were great seats. Just polite not to wear the logo.

By the way, I got other seats too. So I decided to let my brother's wife sit with him down in the good seats and I sat upper deck WEARING my colts logo's with my other brother. We could be a bit rowdier up there anyways. Funny thing is I was surronded by Colts fans. And it wasn't planned. The guy in front of me was painted from the neck up as were his two kids with Colts colors and logos.

And quite honestly, I'd say the crowd was 40% colts/60% Panthers. But both times I've been to panthers/colts in Charlotte, its been that way.
