Quick Take: Injuries haunt Colts, Bills

What we learned ...

Injuries a concern for both sides: The status of Peyton Manning is still cloudy, and Jim Sorgi missed the start with a "gimpy" knee, forcing Jared Lorenzen to start. Colts center Jeff Saturday also left with an injury. Bills left tackle Langston Walker -- filling in for holdout Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters -- injured his left forearm during the second quarter.

Josh Reed making strides: The veteran receiver returned to practice on Sunday for the Bills after missing more than a week with a back injury. He had 3 receptions for 34 yards in his return.

J.P. Losman looks sharp: Trent Edwards is the starter for the Bills when he returns from injury, but Losman showed that he is capable. He completed 13 of 18 passes for 108 yards, and led the team on two scoring drives.

Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders return: The Colts defense welcomed backed a pair of Pro Bowl players as Freeney and Sanders made their first appearance of the preseason. The duo returned to practice on Tuesday, each coming back from offseason surgery. Sanders had surgery on his right shoulder after last season, while Freeney had surgery on his left foot.

Lorenzen, Quinn Gray uninspiring: Both quarterbacks are vying to be the third quarterback for the Colts, but neither did anything distinguishing. Lorenzen completed 7 of 11 passes for only 52 yards, while Gray threw 4 interceptions in the second half to go along with 1 touchdown pass.
