INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- One week after two football fans were injured in a fall at Lucas Oil Stadium, returning fans says the Colts' home stadium is safer.

Barney Levengood, the executive director of the stadium, said earlier this week that "every nut and bolt" on a railing inside the stadium had been inspected. Those sitting in the section where the railing above the visitor's tunnel gave way as the fans leaned against it noticed changes Sunday, too.

One fan walked over to the railing, which witnesses said was wobbly before the fall, and shook it to see if it was sturdy. It was.

Another fan says the awning above the tunnel was raised a couple of feet, providing another potential barrier for fans.
