Colts Working Out Quarterbacks Dan Orlovsky, Brodie Croyle

The Indianapolis Star is reporting that the Colts have two Quarterbacks in their facility today for a workout, and one is a familiar name from Training Camp:

Sources says #Colts are working out QB Dan Orlovsky and Brodie Croyle today as they consider roster addition.

So let the speculation begin on who will no longer be on the roster. I'm a believer that Peyton Manning will not be placed on IR at any point this season, even if it ultimately wastes a roster spot all season. That's why you hear Colts owner Jim Irsay say he may start practicing in December, just so people can hope to see their favorite Colts suit up and play in the season's final month, even though he absolutely shouldn't play in meaningless games (he never has before).

That means that if one of these guys is signed, the Colts will have four QBs on the active roster, something I'm not sure anyone has done before.

We could see somebody who is already injured placed on Injured Reserve, such as Ernie Sims or Melvin Bullitt, but I'm thinking they'll stay on the active roster. Neither injury seems that long-term. The Colts have had Kevin Thomas inactive all three weeks, and Chris Rucker inactive once. So, we could see a move like what happened with Darren Evans, going to Practice Squad, for one of those guys for a week or two. Could be one of the Defensive Ends (I'm guessing not Jerry Hughes).

We should find out soon enough. Certainly seems as though Curtis Painter will get his first NFL start on Monday Night Football though.
