Painter Now No. 2 QB On Depth Chart; Sorgi Moves to IR

The Indianapolis Colts recently just placed backup quarterack Jim Sorgi on IR. That just leaves more help for Curtis Painter, who has been playing football in Indiana for pretty much his whole life.

Painter has just now moved up to the second spot in the depth chart behind Peyton Manning (who would replace him?).

“I guess it moves me up. Now I’m one step away instead of two,” Painter told the Indianapolis Star. “It changes in that sense, but not really, because in this league you’ve got to be ready at any time. So I’ve really tried to take that approach the whole time.”

Painter had thrown for 381 passing yards and completed almost 60 percent of his passes in the preseason. If the Colts move to 13-0, they might have home-field advantage.

And if that happens, Indiana might bench their players, which would leave playing time for Painter. I like to see what Painter has. I think he looks like a good backup.

But Jim Sorgi may be in trouble.
