Thursday’s practice, the second-to-last of training camp for the Indianapolis Colts, was schelduled to be a night practice. Bad weather forced the team to move their final night practice up a few hours, as the Colts finish up their 2012 training camp, before heading to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers on Sunday.
The two-hour practice on Thursday was held indoors due to strong storms outside. Head coach Chuck Pagano wanted to get his team outside, even in the messy conditions, to help this young team prepare for whatever weather they might be facing at Heinz Field Sunday night. The night game under the lights will be the only nationwide prime time game featuring the Colts. Indianapolis plays only one other night game this season, an away game in Jacksonville, on Thursday November 8th.
The Colts will wrap up their final day of training camp on Friday, with an early morning walk-through that begins at 9:45am. The Colts will then leave Anderson, Indiana and return to their usual practice field at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center in Indianapolis.
