The Indianapolis Colts announced the team will conduct its preseason training camp at its own Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center whenever the NFL allows teams to gather for preparation for the 2020 season.
No date for start-up was announced, but this means the Colts will not be able to conduct training camp at its usual Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL has ruled teams must practice at their regular workout places rather than at off-site locations. The Colts are one of 10 teams affected by the league decision.
In a statement, the team said, "The league’s decision was made based on the medical assessment of current risk factors and in consideration for the health and safety of players and football staffs."
The opening game of the NFL regular season is Sept. 10, pending a review of the status of the coronavirus. The Colts are scheduled to open Sept. 13 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The league’s preseason games are scheduled to begin with a single game Aug. 6. The Colts’ first exhibition game is Aug. 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
