Can Marquis stick in Cincy

CINCINNATI, OH (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 at Paul Brown Stadium.

It'll be the last chance for UA grad Marquis Flowers ('13) to show that he belongs on an NFL roster. The sixth-round picks has seven tackles during the pre-season and survived the first cut earlier this week that claimed his former Wildcat teammate quarterback Matt Scott.

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