The Indianapolis Colts are required to make an appearance at the Pro Bowl game in Miami on Sunday night.
But they aren’t required to stay for whole thing.
Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that the Colts contingent will leave the game at halftime to return to Indianapolis with their teammates. Then, they’ll travel with the team on Monday to Miami.
Per Marvez, the league will permit the players to leave at the half, “after fulfilling media and television responsibilities.”
Saints players also will return to New Orleans on Sunday night and fly back to Miami the next day.
The 14 total Saints and Colts make up nearly half of the 29 players who have bailed on the annual all-star game.
