Colts starting LB Hagler out for season with torn biceps

INDIANAPOLIS -- The unbeaten Indianapolis Colts have lost starting linebacker Tyjuan Hagler for the rest of the season with a ruptured biceps.

Colts coach Jim Caldwell said Hagler was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Second-year linebacker Philip Wheeler and undrafted rookie Ramon Humber are expected to replace Hagler. Indy also will promote rookie linebacker Cody Glenn to the active roster from the practice squad.

Running back Donald Brown (shoulder) practiced Wednesday, but cornerback Marlin Jackson (strained anterior cruciate ligament) did not. Also missing practice were wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez (knee), cornerback Kelvin Hayden (knee) and safety Bob Sanders (elbow). Defensive end Dwight Freeney was held out to rest.
