 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The Colts cut two reserve quarterbacks on Saturday, a likely sign that Peyton Manning and backup Jim Sorgi are on the mend.
The Colts waived Jared Lorenzen and Quinn Gray, leaving the Colts with just Manning and Sorgi heading into the season opener Sept. 7 against Chicago. Lorenzen and Gray were among the final cuts that trimmed the Colts' roster to the NFL-mandated 53 players.
The Colts also placed linebacker Tyjuan Hagler and offensive guard Ryan Lilja on the reserve/physically unable to perform list.
Manning missed the entire preseason after having knee surgery in July. He was activated Tuesday and went through a pregame workout with the team before the final preseason game Thursday night, but didn't play. Manning said he expects to start against Chicago.
Sorgi has had a gimpy knee. Though X-rays and tests were negative, he didn't play in the final two preseason games.
That left Lorenzen and Gray with all the playing time against Buffalo on Aug. 24 and Cincinnati on Thursday. Neither impressed as the Colts lost both games badly. Lorenzen finished the preseason with a quarterback rating of 61.0; Gray's was worse, at 49.5.
Kenton Keith was the other significant cut. He ran for 533 yards and scored four touchdowns as Joseph Addai's backup last season. He was arrested in April for criminal trespassing after he allegedly refused to leave a nightclub parking lot that was being cleared by police.
Six days after the arrest, the Colts drafted Michigan running back Mike Hart. Weeks later, Indianapolis brought free agent running back Dominic Rhodes back after he spent a year in Oakland.
Keith struggled in the preseason, gaining 35 yards on 14 carries. Hart led the Colts with 95 yards on 17 carries in exhibition games.
