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, their 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.
