Dont count on Peyton in wks 15-17

NBC TV Interview with Bill Polian - [Full Article]

When it comes to the Colts football operations, the man is Bill Polian (team president, elite world class GM and all around football brain). In short, he runs the shows and when Bill talks, takes note.

"Health is the key consideration," Colts president Bill Polian said on NBC Sunday night as he said the Colts will rest key players. "That's our No. 1 priority. Be healthy in January when the money is on the line. Everything else pales by comparison."

Former Colts coach Tony Dungy, now an analyst for NBC, said on Sunday that the focus for Polian and current Colts coach Jim Caldwell is not to get anybody else hurt.

So how much should we expect to see QB Peyton Manning, chasing his record fourth MVP award, on Thursday?

"Not very much, I don't think," Dungy said on NBC. "I think you're going to see a ton of (backup) Curtis Painter."
