ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter predicted on SportsCenter Friday that Kerry Collins would be the Colts’ Week 1 starting quarterback. “They’re going as if Kerry Collins is going to be the starter,” said Schefter.
“That’s the feeling in the organization.” Schefter appears to be referring the early season only; the Colts wouldn’t have removed Peyton Manning from the PUP list if they expected him to sit out the entire year. We’ll know more when the Colts begin Week 1 preparations next week, but for now it looks like Collins is in the driver’s seat to start against the Texans. It would be a major early-season blow to all of Indianapolis’ pass catchers.
