The Indianapolis Colts moved practice indoors for their first time of the training camp season. Today we’ll talk about some of my observations from Day 5 and play you the audio from player-coach media availability.
Andrew Luck has been drawing a lot of attention in the first week of practices,and rightly so. He’s been excellent to this point with everything considered. He’s got the arm strength that we’ve seen in the past, he’s as accurate, he looks comfortable in the pocket and seems to be as sharp as ever at reading defenses.
Frank Reich talks about Luck’s Day 5 performance in which he increased his workload yet again.
As I spoke about in my camp notes for the day, the cornerback and receiver positions are in desperate need of someone stepping up. The Colts have a pretty solid top-4 at each, but the competition after that gets pretty dicey. Reich responded about each unit saying that they needed to be playmakers.
I give some of my thoughts on Tyquan Lewis and Kemoko Turay and how they’re likely to be used, how Anthony Castonzo and Clayton Geathers alone bring quite a bit more normalcy with their return (expected to be soon) and why this coaching staff will be worth a game or two just among the position coaches and coordinators.
Additionally, I put up the audio from Day 5, taking you in to player-coach availability to listen to the interviews for yourself. Colts running backs Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines talk, followed by head coach Frank Reich. Enjoy
