Landry makes instant impact for Colts

INDIANAPOLIS — It took just two snaps during 11-on-11 drills for LaRon Landry to make an impact during his first practice with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday.

Veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne leapt to make a catch in the left flat, and the new strong safety came roaring in behind him. Landry arrived about the same time as the ball, briefly made contact with Wayne and sent the six-time Pro Bowler tumbling to the turf.

By NFL rules, mini-camp practices are held without pads, and contact is prohibited. Landry's brush with Wayne clearly wasn't intentional, but head coach Chuck Pagano still walked over and draped his arm around his starting safety's shoulder, talking with him all the way back to the huddle.

Recalling the scene after practice, Pagano couldn't stifle a wry smile.

"It is a mandatory mini-camp, but we still got to play by the rules," Pagano said. "I'd much rather have to put my arm around a guy and slow him down rather than have to go the other way. (Landry) understands the tempo. He understands the pace. He understands how we go."

And, deep down, the Colts coach no doubt hopes the collision is a tiny preview of things to come.

Indianapolis hasn't seen the likes of Landry since Bob Sanders, the NFL's 2007 Defensive Player of the Year, was roaming the defensive secondary.

He has a physique that would be right at home in this weekend's Superman reboot film, "Man of Steel." But it's a different comic book denizen that resides in Landry's locker — Marvel's enigmatic Red Hulk.

Landry calls the character — who looks very much like the mainstream Incredible Hulk, except for the change in hue — his "alter ego." He's had the figure since his college days at LSU, and he displays it in different poses each day to reflect his mood.

McAfee was focused only on the 27-26 loss against the New York Giants and how his right foot could have changed it.
