Dan Orlovsky could be playing this week on short rest.

FAMILY FUN

The Harbaugh brothers are just one of the many great families in sports.

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.
