Colts will consider drafting a QB
Without discussing specific names, Polian, the Colts' vice chairman, told radio listeners he had already spoken with Manning about using Indy's first-round draft pick on a quarterback and that Manning is ''fine'' with that.
Speculation, of course, has centered on Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
At 0-10, the Colts are the league's last winless team and they have a two-game lead in the chase for the No. 1 overall draft pick.
Manning has not played this season after undergoing neck surgery twice since May. On Sunday night, Polian said he expected Manning to return to the field next season even though Manning is not expected to start practicing until at least next month.
