Jack Trudeau replaced Gary Hogeboom as the starting quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, prompting the demoted NFL veteran to demand his release from the team.

"My feeling, as I expressed to Ron, is I want to be released or cut tomorrow," Hogeboom said. "There are other things to do in this world besides play in the NFL."Hogeboom completed 15 of 20 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Colts' 17-14 overtime loss to Houston. But the often-injured veteran threw a sideline pass that was intercepted and returned 44 yards for a touchdown. He was also sacked and fumbled to end a late drive.
