Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts take the field again Monday night against the Houston Texans, after a tumultuous bye week that allowed injured receiver Anthony Gonzalez to get ready for a return but cost Manning two of his top targets, Austin Collie and Dallas Clark.
Manning will get by just fine, however, and resumes his place atop the AFC signal-caller hierarchy simply by retaking the field.
