INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Injuries will keep the Colts' top two tight ends, Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, out of Saturday's game against Cleveland.

Fleener is recovering from a sprained right knee. Allen returned this week from a right foot injury, but coach Chuck Pagano said Thursday he would not play.

Also sitting out Saturday will be starting guard Mike McGlynn, who bruised his knee during Wednesday's practice.

Indianapolis did get some good news Thursday. Pro Bowl safety LaRon Landry is expected to make his preseason debut after returning to practice Wednesday. Landry missed more than two weeks with a left knee injury.

Rookie offensive lineman Hugh Thornton also could play after returning to practice this week from a sprained right ankle. Thornton missed all of training camp with the injury.
