INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Dan Orlovsky could be playing this week on
short rest.

The Indianapolis Colts quarterback missed Wednesday’s practice
after his wife, Tiffany, had triplets.

Coach Jim Caldwell said Orlovsky was expected back in town
Wednesday night and should practice Thursday. Caldwell would only
say Orlovsky was absent for “personal reasons.”

But Curtis Painter, who took the first-team snaps Wednesday,
said Orlovsky’s wife had delivered the three boys.

Orlovsky, in his seventh NFL season, has won two straight for
the Colts (2-13) since replacing Painter four games ago. Orlovsky
had lost his first nine career starts.

He is the second Colts quarterback to welcome multiple children
this year. Peyton Manning and his wife, Ashley, have
eight-month-old twins.
