Starting guard Reitz out of lineup in Colts' finale vs. Jaguars

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts will play Sunday at Jacksonville without starting guard Joe Reitz or backup linebacker A.J. Edds.

Both players stayed home Saturday when the team flew to Florida for the Colts' season finale against the Jaguars.

Reitz missed practice all week with an undisclosed ankle injury. Edds has an injury to his left foot that has kept him off the field for most of December.

The Colts also will be without starting linebacker Phillip Wheeler, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve this week.

Indianapolis (2-13) can clinch the first overall pick in April's draft with a loss to Jacksonville (4-11). The Colts also get the No. 1 pick if the St. Louis Rams (2-13) defeat the NFC West champion San Francisco 49ers (12-3).
