Owner: Colts to comply with rules
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay says the team will comply with the NFL's Pro Bowl rules -- even if it means players must make a round-trip flight to Miami on Sunday.
Irsay told The Associated Press on Wednesday night the team will abide by the league's requirements. The Colts still haven't decided whether the Pro Bowlers will return home Sunday night and then fly back to Miami with their teammates Monday.
Team president Bill Polian called the rule "distasteful" during his weekly radio show Monday.
Irsay said the team will follow its traditional plan, "which is comply with league policy and not make a bigger deal out of it than it is."
