The Indianapolis Colts, after a loss in the preseason opener last week to the New York Jets, return home to Lucas Oil Stadium tonight to take on the New York Giants. The two teams have met 14 times in the preseason before, and the Colts hold an 8-5 edge - this will also be the first time since the Colts' first year in Indianapolis, 1984, that the Giants will travel to Indy for a preseason game.
Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and running back Ahmad Bradshaw (who's status is still uncertain) will face their former Giants team, and on the flip side quarterback Curtis Painter (remember him?) and safety Stevie Brown will face their former Colts team.
Here's all you need to know about tonight's game, including game time, television schedule, live streaming information, and more!

Prediction: Hey, it's preseason! The Colts are 0-1, but that doesn't really matter. Check back when it's the regular season, and I'll certainly offer a prediction, but for tonight - it's preseason. Go Colts!

Injury Report: We don't know yet, so stay tuned for the latest later today. Jack Mewhort, Delano Howell, Jerrell Freeman, T.Y. Hilton, and others all missed practice time this past week, but we don't really know the status of any player. Two of the biggest questions fans have is whether Reggie Wayne or Ahmad Bradshaw will make their preseason debut tonight, and neither decision has yet to be announced. We do know, however, that corner Vontae Davis and safety LaRon Landry will both play.
