1. Is Curtis Painter entrenched as the backup quarterback? That apparently is the case, that despite concern from observers and fans over the situation. Painter, a sixth-round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft from Purdue University, played extensively in the final two regular-season games as a rookie. He struggled in those appearances, but played in tough situations, with the Colts having pulled most of their starters having clinched their post-season seeding. Painter at the time was playing because the Colts had placed then-backup Jim Sorgi on injured reserve, and after the Colts allowed Sorgo to sign with the New York Giants as a free agent, there was speculation that the Colts would sign a veteran to backup Peyton Manning. But the Colts typically develop young players as backups, and did so with Sorgi six seasons ago, and with OTAs halfway over, it would be something of a surprise if they deviated from that course.
