Colts owner Jim Irsay’s daughter said Monday that her father was ready to get back to work and Irsay was doing just that on Monday afternoon.
Irsay is in Atlanta to address the league’s owners as part of Indianapolis’ bid for the 2018 Super Bowl. Irsay spoke to the team’s website about the bid and also met with reporters, telling them that he felt “grateful” to be back and that he hasn’t been totally out of the loop while getting medical treatment after an arrest for driving a vehicle while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance. Irsay wasn’t talking about that treatment or arrest, though, and he won’t be on Tuesday when he meets the owners either.
“I have been clued into everything for the last few months. I’m not going to talk about personal medical issues,” Irsay said, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The league has said that Irsay and other owners are subject to the same disciplinary action that players would face in the same situation, so there might be a time when he’ll have to discuss some of those personal issues with Roger Goodell.
