Andrew Luck threw for 107 yards and two touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts responded to criticism by owner Jim Irsay with a 20-12 exhibition victory over the host New York Giants on Sunday night.
Irsay used Twitter to apologize to fans for the Colts' abysmal showing in a 44-20 loss to Buffalo last week, and the Colts (1-1) improved markedly, with some help from the bumbling and suddenly injury-concerned Giants (1-1).
New York wide receiver Victor Cruz (bruised heel) and starting center David Baas (sprained knee) left the game, and the Giants did little on offense.
Dolphins: Tight end Dustin Keller will miss the season after seriously injuring his right knee during Saturday's exhibition game at Houston, two people familiar with the diagnosis said Sunday.
Vikings: Reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson will make his exhibition season debut against the 49ers on Sunday, Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier said.
Broncos: Defensive end Derek Wolfe accompanied his teammates on their flight home after being whisked from the field in an ambulance after a hit to his head and neck in Denver's 40-10 exhibition loss at Seattle on Saturday night. X-rays, CT scans and MRIs were all negative, however, and Wolfe says he'll be back on the field soon.
Fellow starters cornerback Champ Bailey (sprained left foot), wide receiver Wes Welker (mild right ankle sprain), right guard Louis Vasquez (left knee) and linebacker Stewart Bradley (left wrist) also were injured against the Seahawks.
Chiefs: Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles returned to practice with no hesitation despite a lingering right-foot strain that caused soreness to travel halfway up his leg. Charles said it was the first time he'd had this type of foot strain, calling the injury "weird" and saying that "it was definitely scary" because it affected the way he runs.
Jets: Linebacker Quinton Coples, New York's sacks leader last season as a rookie, is out indefinitely because of an ankle injury that will require surgery.
Bears: Chicago signed former Stanford quarterback Trent Edwards to a one-year contract and waived wide receiver Jerrell Jackson. Edwards has started 33 games in a five-season career with Buffalo, Jacksonville, the Raiders and Philadelphia.
