We still don’t know who will start Monday for the Colts -- Kerry Collins is still recovering from concussion symptoms, which might open the gate for Curtis Painter to make his first NFL start -- but we know somebody else who will be there watching.

"I haven't thought about all that," he said
Which, you know, is a bit hard to believe, considering he’s made a trip to Europe in an effort to use stem cell treatment to heal his neck.
As he waits, he’s been relegated to being a sideline cheerleader, and he told ESPN he misses his old life.
“Being there with the guys, the huddles, the conversation,” Manning said. “You just don't feel as much a part of it, a contributor."
