The NFL has released the entire 2018 preseason schedule in which the Colts will play four games before the beginning of the regular season.
This year’s preseason will be critical for the Colts as they break in a new coaching staff and hopefully work on getting Andrew Luck back in the lineup.
This preseason will give Indianapolis’ new coaching staff a chance to evaluate their new players and get them important reps in a new system.
Here is the Colts’ complete 2018 preseason schedule (all times Eastern):

The exact dates for three of the four games haven’t been set yet, but we will give you that update as soon as the NFL releases it. However, you can set your calendars for the first home game of the preseason on August 20th, which will also be aired on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
The Colts will be playing some solid competition in the preseason with four opponents who have legitimate hopes of reaching the playoffs in 2018.
The biggest question surrounding the 2018 preseason is whether Andrew Luck will be taking any live snaps under center.
If I had to guess, I think they’ll hold Luck out for the entire preseason to avoid taking any unnecessary hits. But we will find out more during the offseason.
Clear your schedule for the third week of August to watch the new-look Colts play two games at Lucas Oil Stadium.
