With Daunte Culpepper doubtful for the Colts game, the Detroit News is reporting that an old friend could be back under center Sunday – that of Dan Orlovsky. Lions coach Rod Marinelli said yesterday that Culpepper is “more doubtful than probable” to play in the contest, meaning the team will again go back to Orlovsky as the Lions try to get their first win.
