Two Colts starters had to leave Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers because of injuries, but reports suggest that Indy has nothing to worry about.

Starting RB Joseph Addai left midway through the third quarter with a concussion, and defensive captain LB Gary Brackett left late in the first quarter with an apparent right hand injury.

Addai said after the game, "It's nothing. I was fine. I just got a little dizzy, but I was cool." Addai suffered the injury after tackling Packers LB Robert Francois, who had just recovered a Colts fumble.

Brackett's hand injury led to a little more mystery following the game. More than a half-dozen trainers and Colts personnel surrounded Brackett on the field and his locker was cleared out following the game. But a source told the Indianapolis Star that the injury is "no biggie" and that X-rays taken on the right hand came back negative.
