Amidst tremendous speculation about the health of QB Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts released a statement that included the following:
During the last week, the rate of improvement in Peyton’s rehabilitation process slowed. Over the weekend Peyton experienced soreness in his back. It was originally thought to be a normal reaction to his rehabilitation regimen. When the soreness persisted, the Colts medical team decided to initiate diagnostic tests and to consult with a number of specialists around the country who have been involved in Peyton’s case from the outset. That process continues. As a result of the most recent development the doctors have decided that Peyton will not practice. His participation therefore, in Sunday’s game versus Houston will likely be doubtful. We will update his playing status as required by NFL policy as the week goes on.

This isn't really earth shattering since Manning's recovery had already taken months longer than previously expected. The fact that he will not be practicing essentially ensures that he won't play in the opener against the Texans. All signs point to Kerry Collins getting the starting nod and he has as much experience playing against the Texans as anyoneother than Peyton Manning in the NFL.
However, he like every QB in the league has ZERO experience playing against THIS defense under Wade Phillips. Collins is as good a back-up QB as anyone around and he's a fantastic option for the Colts, but this is still new territory even for him.
As John McClain tweeted this morning - here are the important numbers to consider IMO - Collins 3-3 as a starter vs Houston, but 0-7 vs Wade Phillips as DC, 1-8 overall vs Phillips.
