The Colts are in a team meeting, and all players and coaches are registering to vote right now as part of that meeting. Coach Frank Reich met with the team’s leadership council last night to set all this up.
I’m told Jacoby Brissett was a leading voice in doing it.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett and head coach Frank Reich are leading the charge to get every player and member of the coaching staff registered to vote.
The Colts also announced that they wouldn’t be holding training camp practice on Thursday and will instead focus on discussions surrounding social injustice while making an impact in the community.
“The Colts will not practice today. Instead, the team will use the day to discuss and work toward making a lasting social impact and inspiring change in our communities,” the team announced in a statement Thursday.
These decisions come following the police shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The Colts are one of many teams canceling practices and meetings on Thursday.
The NBA postponed playoff games that were planned for Wednesday night while a number of MLB teams had their games postponed as well.
The Colts have been very outspoken in their belief for social change this offseason. The organization has been vocal in their support of the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd earlier this year.
From owner Jim Irsay to general manager Chris Ballard and the entire roster, the Colts are standing firm in their demand for social change.
