Here are some Training Camp schedule takeaways for 2019:

 

No Night Practices

 

All 16 practices for the Colts are free and open to the public. They will have 10 in the afternoon and 6 in the morning.

 

While the Colts will have 6 practices on either Saturday or Sunday, they will not have any night practices this year.

 

That’s a difference from past years, where night practices often drew the largest crowds to Anderson or Westfield. The two practices with the Browns are more in the later afternoon timeslot.

 

This move away from night practices was a preference from the football side of the Colts operation, focusing on the recovery time for players over the three-week period at camp.

 

Browns Coming To Town

 

The highlight for this year’s camp will be the Cleveland Browns coming to Grand Park for two joint sessions on Wednesday, August 14th and Thursday, August 15th (the two will play at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, August 17th in Week Two of the preseason.

 

These practices will be open and free to the public, running from 4:00-6:10 on Wednesday the 14th and then from 4:00-6:00 on Thursday the 15th.

 

Fireworks should be aplenty between the Colts and Browns given all the intrigue into what the Browns have done this offseason.

 

Both teams improved by quite a bit in 2018. The Colts went from 4-12 to 10-6, making it to the Divisional Round of the Playoffs. And the Browns went from winless in 2017 to 7-8-1 last year, with interim head coach Freddie Kitchens now taking over full-time. Of course, Cleveland made the move of the 2019 offseason in trading for Odell Beckham, Jr., giving Baker Mayfield quite the toy.

 

Last year’s practices between the Colts and Ravens at Grand Park were open to fans, for those looking at getting an up-close look at two exciting teams entering 2019. This year's practices will be open to the public, as well.

 

Get Ready For Padded Practices

 

Arguably the biggest difference for the Colts last year in Training Camp intensity was the amount of full-padded practices they had.

 

And it sounds like Frank Reich is going to maintain that approach.

 

“We’ll be in a very similar schedule as far as time, as far as pads,” Reich said earlier this month when asked about this year’s camp. “We felt pretty good about our schedule last year, the tempo, the timing, the number of days in pads. We might pull off a little bit in a few key places from our study, but other than that we felt pretty good about the schedule.”

 

Before the joint practice session with the Ravens to end camp last year, the Colts were in full pads for 9 of their 15 sessions, which was a major step up from the 2017 camp under Chuck Pagano.

 

The emphasis on more physicality in camp last year certainly contributed to the rise in trench play from the Colts.
