Such a classy move by the Colts. I love seeing James back on the Colts sidelines, even in this capacity!!! 

From Colts.com:

Former Colts running back Edgerrin James and former United States Army soldier and Medal of Honor recipient Sammy Davis will serve as honorary co-captains for the Colts for this Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the New York Jets.

James, the fourth overall pick by the Colts in the 1999 NFL Draft and the franchise’s all-time leading rusher, totaled 9,226 yards and 64 touchdowns rushing in his seven years with the club. James, a four-time Pro Bowler, led the league in rushing his first two seasons in the NFL. He set a club rookie rushing record with 1,553 yards as a rookie in 1999, and set the club rushing mark with 1,709 yards in 2000. James, who played with Arizona from 2006-08 and with Seattle in 2009, has 12,246 rushing yards, 11th in NFL history.

Sammy Davis, a native of Dayton, Ohio, joined the United States Army from Indianapolis. In November, 1967, Davis was an artillery cannoneer private with the 9th infantry division assigned to South Vietnam. For his service and courageous efforts in Vietnam, Davis was awarded the Medal of Honor—America’s highest award for military valor—by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968. Davis is the only Vietnam era Medal of Honor recipient from Indiana. He also received a Silver Star and Purple Heart.
