The Indianapolis Colts' insurance policy in case Peyton Manning is sidelined for a while following…
Colts to break in Kerry Collins
"Ron Turner has been really counseling him along the way, and trying to utilize every waking hour possible. I think it's certainly given him a chance to, at least, get familiarized with it somewhat. Now, obviously, the practices are extremely important, but he's got to get some time in the game as well."
The Colts will be looking for Collins to quickly get up to speed.
"Really I'm looking on giving him the experience of operating the offense in a game-type situation," Collins said. "There are so many things that you can simulate in practice, but it's a little bit different in the ballgame. But the nice thing about it is the fact that he's been in it.
"He understands concepts, (and the) basic philosophy of what we're trying to do. So he's way ahead in that regard. All he has to do is try to transpose things that he already knows and is familiar with with a little different terminology. So we're looking for the operation, giving him an opportunity to get a sense of how to function within this offense in a game. That's really what we're looking for."
