Colts (maybe) sign Drew Willy off practice squad, sign that starters will rest?

96

The Colts chose to use to roster spot available from Anthony Gonzalez being placed on IR to elevate QB Drew Willy to the active roster. With 5 players either ruled out, or doubtful and another 4 listed as questionable it's no given that the player signed today had no chance to play. At the least the Colts appear to want the option of pulling Peyton while having 2 QBs. Hat tip to GoHorse88 who caught the move an hour ago. EDIT: The Indy Star is reporting that DT John Gill was the player signed off the practice squad. (Tip to Coltus in the comments). We'll just have to wait and see on this one. EDITx2: The Indy Star is reporting (same link as above) that both Willy and Gill were signed. No word yet on the cut made to clear room.
