Hickman and Spears will go on injured reserve if they clear waivers.

Two other players who were injured against the Bills _ defensive tackle Montori Hughes (stinger) and cornerback Cassius Vaughn (wrist) _ are listed as day-to-day along with safety LaRon Landry (knee). The Colts also may have linebacker Bjoern Werner, their first-round draft pick, back from a sore left knee. While Landry and Werner did play against Buffalo, Werner returned to practice Tuesday.

But the biggest factor in making the owner happy will be cleaning up the mistakes.

“Just like we said after the game, disappointed but not discouraged,” Pagano said. “So we look at the good things. We want to come out and keep working on those and replicate those things and then find the flaws. Find out where our weaknesses are and go to work. I told the guys, `Get with your position coach and let’s get a plan to get better at the things we need to get better on.’”

Notes: The Colts signed cornerback Johnny Adams and linebacker Monte Simmons.
