Addai Takes The Lead At Humid Training Camp

Last updated on Wednesday, August 1, 2007

(TERRE HAUTE, IN) - Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy says he would like to use two or three running backs on a regular basis this season.

Joseph Addai is back for his second season and assumes the number-one role. After that, no other Colts left on the roster had even one carry during the regular season last year.

Dede Dorsey has been working as Addai's backup during camp so far. Dominic Rhodes opened last season as the starter, but signed with the Oakland Raiders as a free agent following the Super Bowl.

Training camp continues today for the Colts in Terre Haute with weather starting to become a factor. Temperatures during Tuesday afternoon's special teams only practice reached 89 degrees with today's forecast calling for temperatures in the low 90s with high humidity.

Head Coach Tony Dungy says the weather might force the team to adjust the times of practices. Today, the Colts will workout once in the morning and will hold their first night practice of camp this evening.
