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.
