According to Fox 59/CBS 4’s Mike Chappell, the Indianapolis Colts have unveiled their expected training camp start dates for both veterans and rookies to report (per head coach Frank Reich):

Obviously, with the ongoing pandemic, this situation remains completely fluid, and it’s always possible the Colts schedule could be adjusted or even pushed back—with other adjustments that could soon follow down the team’s scheduled chain of events.

The Colts and the league’s other teams are already required to conduct each of their training camps at each respective team’s practice facility and headquarters—which presumably means that live practices this year will be closed to the general public as another health precaution (with joint practices among teams already prohibited).

There will be no usual ‘Colts Camp’ at Westfield this year—instead it’ll be held at the team’s W. 56th Street practice facility.

Currently, the Colts are wrapping up the final week of their ‘virtual offseason’, which is another adjustment that Indianapolis and other NFL teams have already had to make:

This is just a strange offseason for the Colts and a time for all sports in general—the latter which is pretty well nonexistent right now.

The encouraging news is that it does appear that the NFL is fully planning on playing football this season (and tentatively, on a fairly ordinary timeline), but it doesn’t mean that there won’t be additional precautions/adjustments down the road—or that the possibility is completely ‘out of the woods’ quite yet.
