On Sunday, the Colts played in the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. This year’s matchup was against the Washington Redskins. Unfortunately, the Colts couldn’t pull out the victory, losing 16-30, but Colts coach Tony Dungy said that the game was “really encouraging in a lot of areas”.
Among the less experienced players to show surprising potential were Mike Hart (pictured), Gijon Robinson, Pierre Garcon and even Peyton Manning’s backup – Jim Sorgi. After the first preseason game of the year, the Colts headed back to Terre Haute to continue training camp today.
The Colts training camp has been held on the campus of Rose Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute for the past 10 years. Each year, in late July, the Colts report for several long weeks of training before the preseason begins.

The Colts final preseason game is against the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium at 7:00 on Thursday, August 28.
