Look for Drew Willy in Jets-Colts inactives

Fantasy owners who have Colts QB Peyton Manning must be very cautious with the veteran quarterback in Week 16. While coach Jim Caldwell has made no announcement, there is a chance Manning will play only a portion of today’s game against the Jets.

But we might have a clue to Caldwell’s intentions in the inactives report.

If the team lists QB Drew Willy, a practice-squad player all season, as the third quarterback, there’s a good chance Manning could be rested.

In that scenario, Willy would be used as the backup to QB Curtis Painter if and when Manning is pulled from the contest.
