As the Colts prepare to return to Tampa for the initial time since an epic Monday night game eight years ago, eight members of the team are listed as questionable.
Maybe the biggest surprise is that quarterback Kerry Collins, who apparently has a concussion, hasn’t been ruled out for the game. He’s officially listed as questionable with a head injury. The team has not particularly said that Collins suffered a concussion last Sunday night, but coach Jim Caldwell has suggested that Collins is suffering concussion-like symptoms.
The Colts already have stated that Curtis Painter will be the beginning quarterback.
Also questionable is defensive finish Dwight Freeney (ankle), defensive back Antoine Bethea (ankle), tackle Ryan Diem (ankle), tight end Brody Eldridge (knee), defensive tackle Fili Moala (ankle), offensive lineman Joe Reitz (ankle), and linebacker Ernie Sims (knee).
