The first practice of minicamp is done, and the impression many in media are leaving with is this:

Here are some more news and notes from Tom James of the Tribune Star and George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin.

  • Starting offensive line at camp today was LT Jeff Linkebach, LG Seth Olsen, OC Samson Satele, RG Mike McGlynn, and RT Winston Justice. Please note that LT Anthony Castonzo and OG Ben Ijalana did not practice, as they are nursing injuries.
  • Andrew Luck completed completed 15 of 16 pass during 11-on-11 work. The only incompletion was a drop by TE Dwayne Allen.
  • Luck's favorite target this morning: Austin Collie. Maybe this is why Collie was glowing after practice when discussing Luck.
  • Starting defensive line was DE Fili Moala, NT Antonio Johnson, and DE Cory Redding. Drake Nevis did not practice because his foot was in a boot.
  • Kevin Thomas again started at CB opposite Jerraud Powers. However, according to George Bremer, Chuck Pagano made it clear no one should read anything into who is or isn't starting at CB right now.
  • I love this tweet:

  • TE Dominique Jones saw snaps with the first team as an H-back. It seems Jones (who played in the Indoor Football League last year) took the job many thought Brody Eldridge was best suited for.
  • Starting WRs were Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, and Donnie Avery. Avery spent some time in the slot.
  • Donald Brown and Delone Carter actually split carries at RB today.

This morning's practice was not at full speed. The afternoon practice is expected to be faster.
