Full speed ahead for Colts, from Day 1

Training camp provides little time for young team to gel

ANDERSON, Ind. — Determined to hit the ground running at his first professional training camp, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck spent four days recently working out in South Florida with wide receiver Reggie Wayne.

“I got a chance to go down to Miami and work out with Reggie at ‘The U’

which was a neat experience,” he said Saturday after reporting to camp at Anderson University. “You know, as a kid, you grow up hearing about all the athletes that go to Miami to train. And it definitely is that atmosphere (you hear about). So it was nice to be down there with him.”

Wayne gave the quarterback rave reviews for his work.

He had just one small nit to pick. Concerning fashion.

“I was kind of disappointed on the last day,” the veteran wideout said.

“He showed up in a Stanford outfit. I guess he couldn’t do all four days in Miami stuff.”

The pair were joined by wide receivers Donnie Avery and Griff Whalen in a sort of accelerated learning session aimed at making up for lost time.

Luck missed all 10 of the team’s OTA practices in May while he was finishing up his college degree, returning in time only for a three-day full-squad minicamp in June.

Luck also participated in a three-day rookie camp last week, ending Friday just before the Colts reported to training camp.

Wayne said the sessions were anything but easy, and he made sure the players continued to work even in inclement weather.

“You only have so many days, but we were able to get a lot in those days,”

Wayne said. “We got it in the rain and everything. So I didn’t let their frequent flyer miles go to waste.”

That work ethic is pervasive as Indianapolis prepares a march back to respectability following last season’s 2-14 train wreck.
