The Colts practiced Wednesday without starting quarterback Dan Orlovsky after his better half delivered triplets. That temporarily put Curtis Painter back in the charge of the starting offense, a tradeoff some Colts fans are willing to make given the circumstances. To their dismay, coach Jim Caldwell declared Orlovsky, who has won 2 straight, should return to practice Thursday and should play Sunday. Football scores
But Curtis Painter, who took the first-team snaps Wednesday, claimed Orlovsky’s spouse had delivered the three boys.
Orlovsky, in his 7th NFL season, has won 2 directly for the Colts (2-13) since replacing Painter four games back. Orlovsky had lost his first 9 career starts. Baseball scores
He is the second Colts quarterback to welcome multiple kids this year. Peyton Manning and his better half, Ashley, have eight-month-old twins.
