Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt missed practice Thursday because his wife went into labor.

Colquitt said recently that he and his wife, Christia, would be welcoming their fifth child during the bye week.

“I just dialed up to the maker and said we need it on the bye week, if possible,” Colquitt said last week. “… When the schedule came out, as a Christian man I thought, that could not have been better timing.”

Colquitt was not available for comment Thursday.
