One thing certain about the location of the Colts' training camp this summer is where it won't be: Indianapolis.
Colts president Bill Polian confirmed as much Friday, while also saying that a return to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology isn't a given. The Colts have trained at the Terre Haute, Ind., campus since 1999, but the team's contract with the school expired last August.
Polian categorized a return to Terre Haute as "a possibility. I wouldn't say it's a probability. It's a possibility and we're looking at other venues as well.''
Polian would not divulge alternatives the team is considering. A return to Anderson University might be one option. The team trained there from 1984-98, and the school has since upgraded its football
Chris Williams, Anderson's director of communications, wouldn't say whether the school and team have had specific discussions about this summer, only that "we have remained in touch with the Colts since they left and this year is no different."
The team previously has explored holding training camp at Butler University, St. Joseph's College in Rensselaer, Earlham College in Richmond, Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Ill., and Louisville, Ky.
Last summer, Rose-Hulman officials estimated that more than 27,000 fans, a record, attended the team's three-week camp.
