Indianapolis Colts cornerback Jerraud Powers has been downgraded to doubtful for today's AFC championship game against the New York Jets.
Powers started 13 times this season, including last week's divisional-round game against the Ravens. But the rookie did not practice all week after appearing to injure his left foot against the Ravens.
If Powers does not play today, rookie Jacob Lacey is expected to take his place.
Lacey made nine starts this season, including the final three regular-season games when Powers was out with a hamstring injury. Lacey is fifth on the Colts with 78 tackles and second with three interceptions - one of which he returned for a touchdown.
The only other Colts player expected to sit out is kicker Adam Vinatieri.
Broncos: Former Buffalo assistant Eric Studesville was hired as Denver's new running backs coach, replacing longtime assistant Bobby Turner, who rejoined Mike Shanahan in Washington.
Studesville's hiring was one of many coaching staff changes the team announced Saturday.
Bob Ligashesky is the tight ends coach, replacing Clancy Barone, who moves to offensive line coach. Bob Wylie was made Barone's assistant, and Ben McDaniels - coach Josh McDaniels' brother - was promoted to quarterbacks coach.
