The Colts reportedly will be carrying on their routine offseason tradition of holding joint training camp practices—this time with the Arizona Cardinals.

According to Fox59/CBS4’s Mike Chappell, the Indianapolis Colts will host joint training camp practices with the Arizona Cardinals ahead of the two teams’ Week 3 preseason finale matchup on Saturday, August 17th (7 PM EST):

It sounds like at least some of these practices will be open to the general public, which is great for Colts fans making the trip to Westfield, Indiana.

The Colts hosted joint training camp practices with the Chicago Bears last year, as well as traveled to the Philadelphia Eagles before Indianapolis’s preseason matchup with each of them respectively.

The Colts have a long history of holding joint training camp practices including with the Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, and Cleveland Browns dating further back through the years. Some of those aforementioned teams like the Lions and Bears even multiple times.

Former Colts defensive backs coach Jonathan Gannon makes his return to Indianapolis as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. However, most of the Horseshoe faithful will be more interested in seeing the 4th overall pick of this year’s NFL Draft, Marvin Harrison Jr., who is of course the son of the legendary Colts Super Bowl champion wideout and Hall of Famer, his namesake, who spent his entire illustrious 13-year career all with Indianapolis.

Tempers flared during last year’s training camp practice with the Eagles, so it will be interesting to see how these late summer practices go against another set of birds.
