Relax, Colts fans, franchise QB looks like he’s ready to go

Stop your worrying. Stop your grousing. The Franchise, Peyton Manning, will be ready to go when the Indianapolis Colts open the season Sept. 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Seriously, was there ever a question?
“I would be shocked if (Manning) isn’t there (for the season opener),” coach Tony Dungy said after Thursday night’s typically unwatchable preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. “He’d have to have a dramatic setback (to miss the game).”
By setback, he means “getting hit by a bus.”
Gnash your teeth about center Jeff Saturday’s knee and the fact the Colts don’t seem to have much in the way of a second- or third-string quarterback, but as far as the big question of the preseason, consider that one answered.
