Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jeff George is listed as a probable for Sunday's game against Houston after suffering a pulled abdominal muscle.

"I feel I can play Sunday , but it is painful," George said Thursday after seeing limited practice."Whenever I extend my leg, it hurts pretty bad. I'm throwing as well as I have thrown, but it is in an area where you really can't do anything for it," said George.

No one is certain when George was injured, but it is believed to have been during the Colts 16-14 loss last Sunday to New England. The injury surfaced on Monday.

Coach Ron Meyer said he planned to start George at Houston's Astrodome.
