INDIANAPOLIS —It's time for the Indianapolis Colts (1-0) to take on the Baltimore Ravens (2-0) in tonight's preseason matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Be sure to follow along here for live in-game updates:


— The Colts dodge a bullet. Quarterback Robert Griffin III scrambles, sets his feet and throws on the money down the right sideline to Jordan Lasley — but he drops it. Probably would've been a touchdown for Baltimore, but it has to settle for a field goal to extend its lead to 20-10 with 8:50 left in the fourth quarter.

— Mike Badgley connects on a 43-yard field goal, and the Colts cut the Ravens' lead to 20-13 with 6:06 left. The big play of the drive was a 39-yard connection from Jacoby Brissett to rookie wide receiver Steve Ishmael.

— Hassan Ridgeway: 4-3 superstar. He gets sack No. 2 on the night and No. 4 on the preseason.

— Phillip Walker, the Colts' third quarterback, tosses an interception, and the Ravens take over up seven with 2:49 left in the fourth quarter.

— Tarell Basham busts through for the blocked punt; he recovers it at the Ravens' 9-yard line. Great effort and hustle there for the second-year Ohio product. And on the first play of the ensuing drive: Phillip Walker to Zach Pascal, nine-yard touchdown. Colts going for two here, down one, 20-19, but Walker's run on a designed play up the middle comes up short. The Ravens, who recover an onside kick, lead 20-19 with 2:23 left in the fourth quarter.

— Final: the Ravens defeat the Colts, 20-19.


— Rookie Nyhiem Hines fumbles the opening kickoff of the second half, and the Ravens recover in Colts' territory. Five plays and 27 yards later, Lamar Jackson finds Chris Moore for a seven-yard touchdown pass. The Ravens take a 17-10 lead with 12:40 left in the third quarter.

— Another forced fumble and Colts recovery on an Indy punt. This time, Matthew Adams comes in and knocks the ball out, and Rigoberto Sanchez recovers. Colts take over at the 50.

— The Colts can't capitalize on the takeaway again. On 4th and Goal from the 3-yard line, Frank Reich decides to go for it, for Jacoby Brissett's pass on the run falls incomplete. Ravens take over on downs. It's the second time this game the Colts have forced and recovered a fumble on a punt and can't get points off the takeaway.

— At the end of the third quarter, the Ravens lead the Colts, 17-10.


— An initiating-contact-with-the-helmet penalty — the second on the Colts' defense this game — allows the Ravens to get to the Indy 14-yard line, and it really stings a few plays later, as Joe Flacco finds Josh Brown for a seven-yard touchdown pass. Brown was just barely able to get his second foot down before going out of the back of the end zone. The Ravens take a 7-3 lead with 13:21 left in the second quarter.

— Injury update: Colts running back Josh Ferguson (groin) will not return tonight.

— Andrew Luck's night is over after five drives. He goes 6-of-13 for 50 yards and an interception, but the Colts' offense really started to feel the Ravens' defensive pressure up front the last couple drives, allowing two sacks and even more hurries. Jacoby Brissett is now in at quarterback.

— Rookie running back Jordan Wilkins comes on and has an immediate impact, running four times for 21 yards on Brissett's first drive. But his final carry could've been costly — he fumbled near the goal line, but wide receiver Chester Rogers was right there alone in the end zone to pick it up for a touchdown. Colts take a 10-7 lead with 5:26 left in the second quarter.

— Defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway with his third sack of the preseason; loss of nine yards on 3rd down. Lamar Jackson wasn't going anywhere that time. Ravens punt. It seems as if the third-year Texas product Ridgeway is enjoying his new role in this 4-3 defense.

— Justin Tucker's 38-yard field goal ties the game at 10 with two seconds left in the first half.

— At halftime, the Colts and Ravens are tied at 10.


— Clayton Geathers in there at Matthias Farley to start. Joe Flacco tries a DEEP ball to open things up, but both Colts safeties are there to knock the ball to the new Lucas Oil Stadium turf.

— Andrew Luck and the Colts' offense getting a nice round of applause as they take the field for the first time. It's Luck's first game at home since Jan. 1, 2017. Le'Raven Clark (LT) and Braden Smith (RT) getting the start along the offensive line for the Colts. Look for J'Marcus Webb (LT) and Austin Howard (RT) at some point, too. Also, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton looks like he won't play tonight; he has a shoulder injury, but head coach Frank Reich didn't preliminarily believe it was serious.

— Ravens, Colts go three-and-out on their initial drives. Luck goes 0-for-2 to start. Clayton Geathers with the forced fumble on the ensuing punt; Colts' long snapper Luke Rhodes with the recovery deep in Baltimore territory.

— Not ideal: Colts can't capitalize on the turnover. Andrew Luck throws an interception on third down, as Anthony Levine Sr. gets the pick at the Baltimore 6-yard line. Luck 0-for-3 with an interception to start this game, and Indy leaves points on the field.

— Defensive end John Simon breaks through for a big sack on third down. It was all-out effort from the veteran, who now has 2.5 sacks on the preseason. Ravens forced to punt again.

— Adam Vinatieri's career-long field goal? 57 yards; he did it in the regular season back in 2002 as a member of the New England Patriots. Sixteen years later, he crushes a 57-yard field goal to put the Colts up 3-0 with 49 seconds left in the first quarter.

— At the end of the first quarter, the Colts lead the Ravens, 3-0.


— The Colts win the opening toss; elect to defer to the second half. Kickoff going to Baltimore to start this one. Jabaal Sheard, Matt Slauson and Najee Goode out as midfield captains for Indy.
