INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts have put longtime
backup quarterback Jim Sorgi on injured reserve, leaving rookie
Curtis Painter as the only backup to three-time MVP Peyton Manning.
Sorgi had been the third quarterback for the past four games
after hurting his right throwing shoulder in practice.
Painter, a Purdue alum, was a sixth-round draft pick in April.
The Colts also signed offensive lineman Michael Toudouze, Indy's
fifth-round pick in 2006, to fill Sorgi's spot. They waived
quarterback Shane Boyd from the practice squad and signed former
University of Buffalo quarterback Drew Willy.
