To help rebuild their injured roster of linebackers, the Indianapolis Colts have brought in free agent Mike Balogun. The Colts have been hit by injuries early and often already this preseason. These early injuries, although surprising, are not all that uncommon or shocking.
With their second game of the preseason coming up in Pittsburgh this Sunday night, the Colts will find themselves on a grand stage for the first time. The Colts will travel to Heinz Field on Sunday night, under the spotlight of a nation-wide primetime game for the first time this season. The Colts have only one other nationally-televised game, which is an away game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 10 of the regular season.
The Colts finished the last of their two-a-day practices on Wednesday, but will return to the practice field in Anderson, Indiana for a night practice on Thursday. The Colts will close out training camp in Anderson on Friday, before making the trip to Pittsburgh for their primetime game on Sunday night.
NFL veteran defensive end, Cory Redding, says he is ready to make his debut as a Colt on Sunday. Redding missed the game against St. Louis last week with an injured elbow.
“Even though I’m an old vet in this league, I heal quick,” Redding said.
