Colts officials say running back Joseph Addai isn’t expected to return to the game against the Saints because of a nagging right hamstring injury.
Addai sat out the winless Colts’ loss at Cincinnati last week because of the injury and didn’t return to practice until Friday.
He played in the Colts’ first two fruitless series in New Orleans on Sunday night, with two carries for 8 yards and two catches for 11 yards. Addai remained on the sideline in uniform, but without his helmet and with his socks rolled down.
Addai entered the game as Indianapolis’ leader runner with 249 yards and one touchdown on 56 carries.
