Colts Land In London For First Ever Regular Season Game Overseas

Intro: It’s Friday in London and the Colts (1-2) have arrived to continue their prep for a Week Four contest with the Jaguars (0-3). What is on the Colts’ agenda now that they have landed in London?


LONDON – Yes, that dateline is correct---the Colts have landed in London.

Playing the franchise's first ever regular season game outside of the United States, the Colts arrived in London on Friday morning at 6:30 a.m. local time (1:30 a.m. back in Indiana).

It was about an eight-hour, non-stop, flight for the Colts.

The Colts arrived in London with the bulk of their prep for Sunday's Week Four matchup already complete.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the Colts had a pair of practices at their team facility in Indianapolis.

They will waste no time getting back to work in London.

Adjusting their bodies to being five time zones ahead of normal is the objective on Friday.

The Colts will have meetings on Friday morning before an afternoon practice at their temporary headquarters, about 45 minutes outside of London.

Players will get a chance to see parts of London via a bus tour later on Friday.

From a game perspective, the Colts are still in limbo on how they will fill their final open roster spot.

It will likely depend on the health of starting offensive linemen Denzelle Good (right guard) and Joe Reitz (right tackle).

Both Good and Reitz were limited in Thursday's practice due to back injuries. If either, or both, of them can't go on Sunday against the Jaguars, the Colts will be relying on several rookies to round out their offensive line.

*Check back with later on Friday to hear from Chuck Pagano and players following their first practice in London.

The Colts left Indianapolis Thursday evening for their Sunday game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
