Had Rhodes been injured Sunday, Dungy said the Colts would have moved rookie tight end Tom Santi to running back.
And if they need another back, the Colts will likely seek a player such as Clifton Dawson, who has experience in the Colts' system.
"We're not necessarily looking for a more veteran guy, but we are looking for a guy who knows our system, knows our blocking assignments, knows our audibles," Dungy said.
The Colts also could get two starters back Wednesday. Left guard Ryan Lilja and outside linebacker Tyjuan Hagler have both been on the physically unable to perform list since training camp opened in late July. The Colts now have three weeks to activate Lilja and Hagler or they will miss the rest of the season, and Dungy believes both could start practicing this week.
Hagler said doctors cleared him to practice a couple of weeks ago and he's eager to get on the field, though he doesn't know how long it will take to crack the starting lineup.
"I'm in shape, but game shape and conditioning shape are two different things," Hagler said. "But that's how you get into game shape, you continue to play in games, so we'll see."
