ANDERSON, Ind. — Curtis Painter is finally getting his chance to lead the Indianapolis Colts.
On Monday, the backup quarterback led his teammates onto the field for their first training camp practice, a one-hour walkthrough. It's the first time in Painter's three-year NFL career that he's taken extensive snaps with Indy's regulars.
Colts players say they believe the homestate kid who played college ball at Purdue can get the job done while Peyton Manning recovers from neck surgery in May.
Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne says he's a fan of Painter's. Pro Bowl tight end Dallas Clark acknowledges that Painter has a strong arm and knows the offense, and until Manning returns, Painter will be the most experienced quarterback on the Colts' roster.
