    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky The Colts defensive line depth will be tested Sunday in MinnesotaÂ*as starting right defensive tackle Ed Johnson won't play after being arrested and charged with speeding and possession of marijuana.
    It's unclear how the Colts will fill his spot, but Daniel Muir is listed as his backup. Muir, and two rookie ends, Marcus Howard and Curtis Johnson, were inactive for the Colts' season opener. Raheem Brock, who can play inside or out, and rookie tackle Eric Foster, worked as the extra defensive linemen. Tackle Darrell Reid, who plays primarily on special teams, was also active.
    Colts President Bill Polian made a statement about Johnson today:
    "Ed Johnson, last night in Hamilton County, was arrested between midnight and 1:00 a.m., and charged with speeding and possession of marijuana. Those charges have been filed, it is my understanding, and we are in the process right now of determining what course of action to take in respect to discipline. There will be discipline, the question is, 'What is it?' We want to gather all the facts to make sure that what we're doing is correct within the confines of the NFL rules, the CBA and our own particular club rules. I suspect that we'll have an announcement on that in the very near future. That's all I have at the moment."
    Tony Dungy later said: "Ed will not play this week, for sure, so we'll make some plans and figure out what we're going to do"
    It's not the best week for the Colts to be without their starting right defensive tackle. Minnesota left guard Steve Hutchinson and center Matt Birk have been named to 11 Pro Bowl teams between them.

    Omaha isn't here, and won't be until the Colts do better.

    Can't blame Ed though - after the thrashing they took from the rook, I'd probably want to get a little high too :)

    We still have to handle our business. If we go 3-0 in our at home division games, it would be a good start.
