Colts re-signed DE Josh Thomas to a one-year contract.

Colts free agent DE Josh Thomas is due to visit the Titans today.

Jevon Kearse won't be alone in Nashville. Thomas started seven games for the Colts last season, and has become an attractive option for several teams on the market as most of the defensive ends have been swept up in the past week.

Colts DE Josh Thomas will likely start in place of the injured Dwight Freeney over newly signed Simeon Rice in Week 11.

DL Raheem Brock (neck) practiced on Wednesday, along with starting LT Tony Ugoh (neck) and LB Freddie Keiaho (ear).
