ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) – One of the most anticipated events of Colts camp, the team will hold its first and only night practice Wednesday night.

The night practice is something many fans look forward to. More fans are expected to show up compared to the usual day practices. The evening workouts give fans a chance to see the team.

Wednesday’s practice will be the first time the team is in full pads since their loss in the AFC Championship game to the New England Patriots, also known as the Deflategate game.

Coach Chuck Pagano says although it’s technically “full pads,” players have been going full tilt for the last two days.

“You got helmets on, you got shoulder pads on, we are going to get after it. We aren’t going to tackle anybody low, cut anybody, those type of things – we’re in pads today,” said Pagano. “Just because it’s helmets and shoulder pads, don’t misconstrue that we’re not getting after each other today.”

Wednesday’s practice goes from 6:25 p.m. to 9:10 p.m.

The team has a day off Thursday. Camp continues on Friday with an afternoon practice.

Wednesday night’s event is about more than football – there will also be a “Bar-B-Q Bash” in Colts City. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
