INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay announced on Monday that the team will once again wear their all-white uniforms for this year’s preseason home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Aug 20:
The all-white uniforms are typically the Colts’ away uniforms, but the team has been wearing them for their preseason home opener since 2012.
They broke them out in tremendous fashion that year, as it was quarterback Andrew Luck’s first appearance at Lucas Oil Stadium. His first pass went for a 63-yard touchdown to Donald Brown in a 38-3 win over the then-St. Louis Rams.
Like they will with the Ravens this summer, last year the Colts hosted the Detroit Lions for a pair of joint practices before facing off in their preseason home opener in the all-white uniforms. The Lions won the game, 24-10.
The Colts’ joint practices with the Ravens this summer will be held on Friday, Aug. 17 and Saturday, Aug. 18 from 1:30-3:30 PM ET at Grand Park in Westfield, Ind., and they are open to the public.
Following the Colts and Ravens matchup during Week 2 of the preseason, the Colts will then host the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, Aug. 25 and then complete the preseason by traveling to meet the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, August 30.
