The Colts will conduct their mandatory minicamp for all players (veteran and rook alike) this week, from Tuesday, June 12th to Thursday, June 14th. The June 13th practice (Wednesday) will be at Lucas Oil Stadium and it will be open to the public. Practice starts at 2:00 pm.
Look for a Stampede Blue preview article for minicamp tomorrow.
Obviously, the biggest storyline going into camp is Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall pick. Though he is not currently signed to a contract, he is allowed to practice. This will be Luck's first practice with the veterans. He participated in the rookie camp just after the draft, but he missed all of the team's OTAs due to graduation requirements at Stanford.
WRs Griff Whalen (Stanford) and LaVon Brazill (Ohio) also missed OTAs because of school requirements. They are expected at minicamp this week as well.
Some of you have asked me the best place and time to watch minicamp. Media will have four opportunities to watch camp: Tues at 11:00 am and 1:30 pm; Wednesday at 2:00 pm as LOS; Thurs at 11:00 am. All times are Eastern. For fans, I recommend making time to go to the Wednesday practice at 2:00 pm ET. For many, it will be the first time seeing Andrew Luck throw. Take the opportunity.
For now, post the stories you are most interested in following during minicamp. Is it the runningback battle? Who is going to play corner? Will Donnie Avery stick? The starting offensive line?
Yep, lots to talk about.
