MIAMI (AP) _ Despite an injured ankle, cornerback Nick Harper participated in the Indianapolis Colts' final walk-through practice today. The team is hopeful he'll be ready for the Super Bowl.

Harper will be a game-time decision on Sunday. Colts coach Tony Dungy says the cornerback ``feels very confident that he's going to be able to go.''

The Colts also expect defensive end Robert Mathis to play against the Chicago Bears, even though Mathis was held out of practice. Mathis left the workout on Friday because of back spasms.

Dungy kept the team on the field about 40 minutes, telling the players afterward they had done all they could to prepare for the big game.

``There's no more preparation,'' Dungy says.
