The updated 2011 NFL preseason schedule has been released. Here are the dates and times for the Indianapolis Colts:
Preseason No. 1: Indianapolis Colts at St. Louis Rams, August 13, 7:00pm
Preseason No. 2: Washington Redskins at Indianapolis Colts, August 19th, 7:00pm
Preseason No. 3: Green Bay Packers at Indianapolis Colts, CBS, August 26th, 8:00pm
Preseason No. 4: Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals, Sept. 1, 7:00pm
Other news, from the Associated Press, is that the Colts will open training camp on Sunday, July 31st. It was originally reported by the NFL that the Colts would report on Friday. Per NFL rules, teams must report to camp fifteen days before the start of their first preseason game. But Colts communications director Avis Roper said that Sunday was the earliest date the team could report.
The Vikings are also reporting late.
I don't know how the Colts are able to skirt around this 'rule,' but I guess they can. Regardless, camp starts Sunday with the first practice on Monday, August 1st.
