Chiefs Preparing For Both Colts Quarterbacks

It's usually a problem preparing for the Indianapolis Colts because of the quarterback we've seen behind center for the last 13 years -- Peyton Manning. Manning is gone but it'll still be a little bit of an issue preparing for the Colts quarterback.

Kerry Collins was signed over the offseason with the expectation being that he'll be the starter if Manning couldn't play. Manning hasn't played (and won't play in Week 5) so Collins started the first three games for the Colts, before going down in Week 3 with "concussion-like symptoms". (Why not just say concussion?) Curtis Painter started Week 4 for the Colts in Collins' place.

Which brings us to the present. Todd Haley says the Chiefs will be preparing for both quarterbacks this weekend.

"We gotta prepare for a couple quarterbacks this week," Haley said (via KCChiefs.com), "unless someone knows something that I don't, in Painter and Kerry Collins. As the week goes on we'll figure out how that's gonna go but as of now we're preparing for two."

The Chiefs should probably focus more on Painter. Colts' exec Bill Polian reportedly said on Tuesday radio show in Indianapolis that he doesn't expect a change at quarterback, and Painter will likely play.
