INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts will have Curtis Painter as their starting quarterback for Sunday's game against Kansas City as Kerry Collins continues his recovery from a concussion.

Collins sat out last Monday's game against Tampa Bay and has been limited in practice this week. Painter made his first NFL start in the 24-17 loss to the Buccaneers that dropped the Colts to 0-4.

Lured out of a brief retirement in late August when it was learned that Peyton Manning would need more surgery for his injured neck, Collins had started the Colts' first three games and was knocked out of Week 3's contest against the Steelers.

Painter threw for 281 yards with a pair of touchdowns against the Bucs, but completed just 13-of-30 passes and was sacked four times.
