Matt "mgrex03" Grecco was on a plane back to Colorado when the Colts were holding their afternoon practice today, which was in full pads. This morning's practice was more of a walk through.
Interesting note: A week after BEING A TURNCOAT and doing some special coaching for the Saints, former-offensive line coach Howard Mudd was at morning walk through in Anderson today. Peyton Manning said it was a bit of a thrill to see the grouchy old coach.
I knew Howard was coming yesterday and I think players enjoyed seeing him. We had a retirement party for Howard back in April with the linemen and a lot of ex-offensive linemen who have played here through the years and me and Dallas (Clark.) So we had a nice tribute to Howard and it all went really well. I think he really enjoyed it.
Notes for this afternoon's practice right now are sparse. We'll probably get more details later this evening. For now, updates to practice are via Phil Wilson, Colts.com, and John Oehser.
- As reported earlier, Charlie Johnson and Andy Alleman were carted off the practice field with either foot or knee injuries. No word yet on the severity of the injuries.
- Jim Caldwell said he would address the media on injuries tomorrow after after the team's morning practice.
- On a lighter note, punter Pat McAfee lined up at wideout on one play.
- Colts focused on goal-line offense.
- Curtis Painter hit Jacob Tamme on a nice TD pass. Tamme tumbled into the spectators near the field.
