Back-up QB Josh Betts knows he has hard fight ahead of him going into this years training camp. Betts spent last season on the Colts' practice squad, but hopes to make the active roster this year. He's really going to have to show what he's made of in order to crack a roster that usually carries two quarterbacks and Peyton Manning and Jim Sorgi's names are all but set in stone for those spots. To make things even more interesting Betts will also have to battle John Navarre, even just for the No. 3 spot, who signed with the Colts during the offseason after three years with the Cardinals. Click here to see why Betts thinks he can do it and how he's been preparing!

While he is no longer a Colt, Brandon Stokley will always have a special place in Colts history. He, Marvin Harrison, and Reggie Wayne became the first receiving trio in NFL history to each catch for over 1,000 yards and 10 TDs. He caught the touchdown pass which helped Peyton Manning break Dan Marino's single-season touchdown record. Most of all he continually sacrificed his body by playing in the slot and taking the big hits to move the chains. Unfortunetly taking those kinds of hits makes you more likely to get injured and Stokley found himself in rehab multiple times in the last season. The good news is he is finally returning to the field after rehabing his ruptured Achilles' tendon and says he has a new motivation. Click here to see how he's handling his return.
