Colts Training Camp Schedule

Friday, August 12:

8:30 a.m.

So, practice this morning ended (a walkthrough) and the Colts are gearing up for tomorrow night's 8:00 p.m. Eastern preseason game against the Rams in St. Louis. I'll be a guest on 101 ESPN St. Louis tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m. Eastern (10:30 a.m. Central) to preview the game.

Yesterday's practice was much more interesting than this morning's. Notes after the jump...

  • Jacob Lacey practiced yesterday after an injury scare two days ago where he was carted off the field. He is expected to start against the Rams tonight.
  • Lacey's injury was to his Achilles. This is interesting because we've seen nine players end their season so far in training camp with Achilles tears. Jacob might have dodged a big bullet.
  • Kevin Thomas looked good yesterday.
  • Dan Orlovsky was impressive yesterday. Hit Anthony Gonzalez on on a 30-yarder along right sideline.
  • Not practicing Thursday, according to Tom James, were Demario Pressley, Fili Moala, Jamaal Anderson, Ernie Sims, Joe Horn, Ryan Diem, Jamey Richard, Jaimie Thomas, Brody Eldridge, Blair White (PUP), and Peyton Manning (PUP).

I got jealous of other team's fans last night. They got to watch their teams play. Yes, I watched just about all of that crappy Chargers v. Seahawks game... and I LOVED IT!
