Jim Irsay Pleads Guilty, Receives Sentence

After much anticipation and speculation, Jim Irsay's punishment from the NFL has been made public. Just hours after his guilty plea in court, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced that Irsay would be suspended for six games, and will be fined $500,000. This is the maximum amount anyone can be fined under current league rules.

The fine is ten times that of the fine for the same infraction committed by a player. Goodell was quoted as saying, "Owners, management personell, and coaches must be held to a higher standard than players." It is the highest penalty given since 2007, which was received by Bill Belichick for the Patriots' spying scandal.

It also marks the first time an owner of a team has been suspended since 1999, when San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. plead guilty to an extortion case.

The penalty officially begins 5 P.M. Wednesday, after which Irsay can no longer be present at any Colt's facility, attend games or practices, represent the team in any way, conduct interviews with the media, or use social media to discuss the team.

After a close 27-26 loss to the reinvigorated offense of the New York Giants, the Colts are continuing to make their preseason adjustments. While the Colts held them for much of the game, the Giants earned two touchdowns in the final four minutes to steal the game in its final moments.

As for positive news, Hakeem Nicks caught five passes for 53 yards, making him the leading receiver of the night. Nicks did not score a touchdown, but his second quarter opening play was a 17 yard reception that lead to a 47 yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri.

Andrew Luck was also passing reliably, completing 12 out of 18 passes. Both he and Matt Hasselbeck passed for a touchdown.

With the game against the New Orlean Saints quickly approaching on Saturday, much speculation is in the air about Reggie Wayne. While Wayne has repeatedly said that he is ready to return to the field during game time, Coach Pagano still has reservations about letting him fully return.

Training Camp Ends, as Colts Continue Preseason Prep

The Colt's summer training camp in Anderson, Indiana, has concluded on Wednesday, but the team is still continuing to develop. After three weeks away, the team is returning to Indy in preparation for the quickly approaching season.

Throughout the camp, the the star of the show has been the offense. From Donte Moncrief developing as a player, to T.Y. Hilton continuing to deliver results, and Hakeem Nicks making a name for himself, the team seems to be putting a formidable offensive combination together.

A core part of that offense will be Reggie Wayne, who appears to be back in top form after recovering from his torn ACL. He currently stands 1,015 yards behind Marvin Harrison for the franchise record of receiving yards, and it may be possible he'll earn the title this year.

Following last week's game, the camp received a special visit from a famous former Colt. Edgerrin James arrived Saturday to spend some one-on-one time with Trent Richardson, in order to mentor him on how to mesh better with the team and put up bigger numbers. Statements on Richardson have been optimistic throughout the duration of camp, and the arrival of James further demonstrates how much interest the team has put into him.

The Colts may have lost to the New York Jets Thursday night in a 13-10 game, but the final score isn't what most will remember about the game. It was a night full of expected turns, twists, and even a few pleasant surprises.

The preseason opener took place in the Meadowlands, where things quickly turned negative for the Colts quickly, as starting center Khaled Holmes was injured on the opening drive. He was seen grabbing his leg, and attempting to get up, before laying down and waiting for medical attention. After examination from the trainers, he was able to limp off field.

Today he underwent an MRI scan, where it was found he sprained his ankle. It has not been said how many games he will miss, but it is likely he will return later in the season.

Holmes' opening was filled by Jonotthan Harrison, who unfortunately snapped the ball too early on only his second down. In a post-game interview, he claimed he was nervous about his first NFL game, and that he would make it a point to make sure it didn't happen again.
