Colts Notebook: Pagano pleased with offseason work so far


BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY: Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and cornerback Greg Toler were among the players sitting out Wednesday.

Heyward-Bey tweaked a hamstring during Tuesday's practice, and Toler has been suffering from a sore foot. The veteran cornerback fully participated in Tuesday's workout but was held out Wednesday as a precaution.

"We're going to err on the side of caution, especially this time of year and not push it," Pagano said. "It'd be silly for me or anybody else (to push it). They want to go. We have to protect those guys from themselves. They want to be a part of everything.

"Push him out there and force the issue with him, then have something serious happen this time of year would be not very smart on my part."

Others sitting out Wednesday's session include: safety Delano Howell, safety LaRon Landry, running back Delone Carter, safety Joe Lefeged, safety Larry Asante, safety John Boyett, inside linebacker Pat Angerer, guard Ben Ijalana, wide receiver Reggie Wayne, defensive end Cory Redding, defensive end Fili Moala, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and outside linebacker Robert Mathis.

LEADER OF MEN: Veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck could see Andrew Luck's physical talent from afar.

But it wasn't until he signed with the Colts as a free agent this offseason that he learned the second-year quarterback is just as a good in the locker room as he is on the field.

"It just comes real natural to him," Hasselbeck said of Luck's leadership. "He's got a great sense of when to pull somebody aside, how to deal with coaches, just how to treat everyone around him."

CALL OF DUTY: Army lieutenant Josh McNary still is serving out his commitment to the armed services.

The Black Knights' all-time sacks leader signed with Indianapolis in March but won't report to practice until he receives his discharge. That is expected to come by June, but Pagano said there is no firm time table.

  • George Bremer: Pagano's tale has big-screen potential

    I'm picturing Billy Bob Thornton. Or perhaps Stephen Lang, who's probably best known for playing the bad guy in "Avatar." Sorry. I'm getting a little ahead of myself. "Sidelined," the new book by Chuck Pagano and agent/author Bruce A. Tollner reads so much like a treatment for a classic sports movie that you can't help but begin casting the starring role of the Indianapolis Colts head coach in your head.

Many of the team's veterans got an even earlier respite this time around, being dismissed following the morning meetings.
