Colts edge Bengals in preseason finale

CINCINNATI -- Stephen Morris' 25-yard touchdown pass to undrafted rookie Tevaun Smith with 40 seconds left gave the Indianapolis Colts a 13-10 preseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night with both teams' starters watching from the sidelines.

The Colts (2-2) and Bengals (1-3) rested their starters, hoping to avoid injuries, but Indianapolis lost another player at a hard-hit position.

Cornerback Tevin Mitchell left in the first half with a hamstring injury. The Colts already had five cornerbacks injured.

The Bengals' starters were among a group of 27 players on the field for a workout in T-shirts and shorts two hours before the kickoff, knowing they wouldn't be playing.

Andy Dalton lingered on the field after the workout and chatted with Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals, a fellow TCU athlete. The Cardinals were in town and had the day off before opening a weekend series against the Reds. Carpenter, Kolten Wong and Lance Lynn watched the pregame warmups from the sideline.
