The Indianapolis Colts Influence
Packers Trade Brett Favre to the New York Jets
The Brett Favre drama has finally ended.
The Green Bay Packers traded quarterback, Brett Favre to the New York Jets in exchange for a conditional fourth round pick in next year's draft. That could change to a first round pick if Favre plays 80% of the snaps and if the Jets make the Super Bowl.
Former Mexico High School two-way football star and University of Missouri standout linebacker Dedrick Harrington hopes to come to the rescue of the Indianapolis Colts.
With up to five linebackers unavailable this week, the Colts have signed Harrington, who had been released late last month from the St. Louis Rams training camp.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Harrington spent time on the Colts' practice squad last season and also has worked out with Dallas in hopes of continuing his gridiron career at the professional level.
After losing to Washington in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game, the Colts had Monday off and a relatively light day Tuesday before going through a pair of full-team practices Wednesday.
The Colts were to practice twice today, then once Friday morning before traveling to Carolina to play the Panthers on Saturday night.
The RCA Dome, home of the Indianapolis Colts, will die a slow death. Starting in September, the 16 fans that supply air for the dome will be turned off. No big deal to you, but for the dome's ceiling it's everything. The Indianapolis Star writes that the ceiling will collapse within 30 minutes of the air being cut off.
An implosion in December will end the RCA Dome's life. But in the meantime, the RCA Dome will be torn down slowly. According to the newspaper, "Even the dome's fabric roof will be preserved and sold as memorabilia -- $60 for an 8.5-by-4-inch swath." And for you green fans, 80 percent of the stadium will be recycled.
Lucas Oil Stadium will be the new home of the Colts. The RCA Dome has been the home of Colts ever since they left Baltimore in the middle of the night in 1984. It was very similar to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. It was called the Hoosier Dome until 1994 when RCA bought the naming rights. The stadium, which seats 57,980 for football, saw its last game when the Colts lost to the San Diego Chargers, 28-24, Jan. 13, 2008.
The Lucas Oil Stadium will seat 63,000. Interestingly, it will have the second smallest seating in the NFL. The Chicago Bears' Soldiers Field seats just 61,000. The first game at the new stadium will pit the Colts against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, August 24, at 8:00 p.m. in an exhibition game.

Colts CB Michael Coe should be out approximately two months after undergoing surgery on his left knee Wednesday.
"The surgery went well," coach Tony Dungy told the Indianapolis Star. "We're looking at probably eight weeks from now before he's ready to get back going."
A second-year pro out of Alabama State, Coe recorded 10 tackles in his rookie season. He was expected to add depth to the Colts' secondary, most likely seeing time in a reserve role or in the nickel and dime packages.
Coe, who injured the knee in practice last week, is the latest casualty to a Colts defense already operating without starters DE Dwight Freeney, S Bob Sanders, DE Robert Mathis, MLB Gary Brackett and SLB Tyjuan Hagler. All except Hagler and Coe are expected back for the regular season, although it's no certainty Coe will make the final 53-man roster.
