Luck working on decision making



"We always talk about getting hits on the quarterback, you love sacks. But the hits add up through the course of the game and the course of a season. So we’ll continue to make a point of emphasis with Andrew as far as extending plays and getting first downs when he can get first downs, but certainly we’d love him to get out of bounds, slide, throw the ball away whenever possible.”
Arians, who coached Roethlisberger with the Steelers, agrees.
"He [Luck] has a great feel for sliding, getting out of harm's way and not taking any shots. Andrew has a great feel in the pocket. He doesn't get the credit for the athlete he is. He's a phenomenal athlete. John Elwayish. He's big, strong and can move," the Colts assistant said.
"And Ben's the same way. He was uncanny at it. But [Luck's] not going to take shots. He knows when to go down. We've just got get people to make sure they're not hitting him when he's sliding. I think he has a real good feel for who's around and when to get down, when to get out of bounds."
Injury list -- Center Samson Satele (knee) and offensive guard/center Mike Mcglynn both saw limited work during Thursday's practice. Wide receiver Austin Collie (concussion) and offensive tackle Winston Justice (concussion) was able to fully participate in the workout.
Defensive end Cory Redding (triceps), meanwhile, did not practice Thursday. He saw limited work on Wednesday
Outside linebacker Dwight Freeney (ankle) has not practiced since he was hurt in the first quarter of the Chicago game in the regular-season opener. He is not expected to be available for Sunday's game with Jacksonville.
Offensive guard Joe Reitz (knee) sat out Thursday's workout. He has only practiced once since the team returned from training camp. Reitz is not expected to be available for Sunday's game with Jacksonville.
