TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - With Peyton Manning temporarily sidelined, the Indianapolis Colts have signed two other veteran quarterbacks - Quinn Gray and Jared Lorenzen.
Gray played for AFC South division rival Jacksonville last season, and Lorenzen was a backup to Peyton's brother Eli with the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Manning's longtime backup, Jim Sorgi, now becomes the temporary starter.
Also today, team president Bill Polian announced that all 9 of the Colts' draft picks have signed contracts. The team also waived quarterback Josh Betts and guard Mike Elgin and claimed offensive lineman Doug Datish off waivers from Atlanta.
