Colts to induct former center Jeff Saturday in Ring of Honor

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Former Colts center Jeff Saturday will become the 12th member to join the team's Ring of Honor on Sept. 21.

Indianapolis will host the New York Jets that Monday night.

Saturday joined the team as undrafted free agent in 1999 and became a fixture in the Indianapolis community and on the Colts' offensive line.

He and former quarterback Peyton Manning played competed in 170 games together, an NFL record for a quarterback-center combination. Saturday participated in 132 wins, the third-most in franchise history. He was named to six Pro Bowls and two All-Pro teams and created the symbolic image to the end the NFL lockout in 2012 when he hugged Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
