    The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Dan Orlovsky, according to a league source.

    With starting quarterback Kerry Collins battling concussion-like symptoms following the Colts' 23-20 Sunday night loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Colts auditioned Orlovsky and ex-Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brodie Croyle on Tuesday, the Indianapolis Star reported.

    While neither signal caller boasts an impressive resume, Orlovsky had the inside edge on the basis of a few weeks spent in the Colts' system during the preseason. Orlovsky was among the Colts' final cuts when they trimmed their roster down to 53, but now he might be in the mix for the starting spot in Week 4.

    There's no telling if coach Jim Caldwell believes Collins is the man for the job anymore -- concussion or no concussion -- and Curtis Painter was uneven during the second half against the Steelers, completing 5 of 11 passes for 60 yards.

    Orlovsky has thrown for 1,679 yards and eight touchdowns to eight interceptions in 13 career games.

    I'm a little shocked that they aren't letting Painter get the start. I mean I know his track record isn't the best but last week he kinda-sorta play well against the Steelers right? Lol
