GAME RELEASE: Indianapolis Colts vs. Buffalo Bills

Colts open preseason with Bills.





The Indianapolis Colts kickoff the 2013 campaign with a home preseason contest against the Buffalo Bills. General Manager Ryan Grigson and Head Coach Chuck Pagano embark on year two together after a successful season a year ago.

The Colts finished the 2012 regular season with an 11-5 record, earning an AFC Wild Card berth in the playoffs. Their record was a nine-win improvement from 2011, tying the Colts for the third-largest one-year turnaround in NFL history.

The Colts roster features several new faces following a productive offseason by the team. Grigson made key additions with the signings of RB-Ahmad Bradshaw, T-Gosder Cherilus, NT-Aubrayo Franklin, QB-Matt Hasselbeck, WR-Darrius Heyward-Bey, DT-Ricky Jean Francois, S-LaRon Landry, OLB-Lawrence Sidbury, G-Donald Thomas, CB-Greg Toler and OLB-Erik Walden. Grigson also acquired FB-Stanley Havili in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Indianapolis' seven-man draft class is headlined by first-round pick OLB-Bjoern Werner, a unanimous All-America first-team selection in 2012. Also selected by the Colts are G-Hugh Thornton, C/G-Khaled Holmes, DT-Montori Hughes, S-John Boyett, RB-Kerwynn Williams and TE-Justice Cunningham.

Following Sunday's preseason contest against the Bills, the Colts will return to Anderson University to continue their 2013 training camp. Practices will resume on Tuesday, August 13.
