As pretty much everyone knows, Andrew Luck practiced with the Indianapolis Colts for the first time in his young career today. Big surprise here, I know, but from the sound of it, he was very impressive.

According to Phil Richards (@PhilRichards6), Luck's wide receiver Austin Collie said of Luck, "Andrew's got it. You can tell he's on his stuff, just the way he's pointing out his hots and stuff."

Right from the start, Luck was in command of the Colts' offense.

Tight end Coby Fleener noticed it too:

It is only one practice, and only a walk through at that. But Luck impressed people. Not just his physical ability, but his leadership and poise as well. That is what I was very interested in seeing - how Andrew Luck would take over the number one quarterback job. I was not sure if he would be hesitant or if he would step right in and assume leadership. It seems to be the latter.

That is not to say his physical skills were lacking, however. Per George Bremer on Luck's morning practice:

Tom James has the update on the afternoon practice:

Everyone is covering Andrew Luck's first day practicing with the Colts. Luck was brilliant today - his passing, his leadership of the offense, the way he dealt with the media afterwards - it was all great.

One day. Yes, it has only been one day (and that was against the Colts' defense, as well), but Andrew Luck impressed people today. This is probably making too much of it, but then again I am an obsessed Colts fan, so I am excited for minicamp. I guess I am crazy like that. But you don't have to be crazy to understand what Austin Collie said: "Andrew's got it".
