Colts owner Jim Irsay entered a rehab facility nearly two months ago after a drug arrest, but he will be in Atlanta for the NFL owners meetings later this month, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star tweeted on Wednesday, citing Colts COO Pete Ward.

Irsay's daughter, Carlie Irsay-Gordon, has been running the Colts in her father's absence, according to ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

SI WIRE: Bills defensive end Marcell Dareus arrested on felony drug charges

Indianapolis is bidding for the 2018 Super Bowl, and the 54-year-old Irsay is planning to be at the press conference. Irsay was arrested on March 17 and faces four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance after police reportedly found him with $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his car.

"Every owner of the franchises whose city is bidding has a chance to talk for five minutes, so he plans on talking to the ownership," Ward said. "He's very excited about the bid ... He has become increasingly more active in terms of lobbying and just keeping tabs on how things are going."

It is uncertain whether Irsay is still in rehab or getting other treatment, Wells reports.

Indianapolis hosted Super Bowl XLVI in 2012, when the Giants beat the Patriots, 21-17.
