According to a report on WISHTV, Jim Irsay told Super Bowl donors at breakfast that Peyton Manning will be placed on IR.
With an extra day to get ready for Tampa Bay, it would be prudent to bring in David Garrard (cheap) or Carson Palmer (expensive) if they don’t want the “lose for Luck” crowd drowning the team with boos at every game in Indianapolis.
I believe Curtis Painter will win them at least a game if he starts the rest of the season, but they need a better second option than a concussed, past-his-prime Kerry Collins.
UPDATE! Jim Irsay says on Twitter: “I didn’t say Peyton out 4season FOR SURE,keeping him on ActiveRoster n taking it month by month/Outside chance of return n December possible”
