The Colts ended September with a Painter in the driver’s seat and a superstar Manning a growing injured reserve list. Bleak and Blue adequately describes the mood surrounding this team as the leaves start to turn. Here are the notes from Friday:
- It looks like Terrence Johnson will start at left cornerback over Jacob Lacey.
- The Colts continued to waffle on whether QB Kerry Collins would play against Tampa on Monday. I’m getting my Painter jersey warmed up.
- Collins missed practice on Friday, thanks to his maybe concussion.
- Also sitting out practice were DT Fili Moala (ankle), G Ryan Diem (ankle), G Joe Reits (ankle), LB Ernie Sims (knee), and TE Brody Eldridge (knee). It’s not a good time to be part of Colt’s leg.
- Putting in full practices Friday were DE Dwight Freeney (abs) and S Antoine Bethea (heel).
