CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – There’s no incentive for the Colts and the Bengals to play their starters much in the final preseason game. They’ve done so well that both teams are feeling good about the regular season.

The Colts (0-3) and the Bengals (1-2) will be looking mostly at competition for backup spots on Thursday night (7:00 p.m./ABC6) at Paul Brown Stadium.

It’ll be the final time that Indianapolis linebacker Robert Mathis can be with the team. He’ll start serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. He claims he used a fertility drug to help his wife get pregnant.

Cincinnati Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who signed a three-year contract extension on Wednesday, is expected to sit out with a hamstring injury.
