Camp notes: Costanzo impresses Clark in debut

ANDERSON, Ind. — Before Saturday’s preseason opener, tight end Dallas Clark said he looks forward to the exhibition games because it’s fun to see which young players will step up on the brighter stage.

So, following the Colts’ 33-10 loss to the St. Louis Rams, who stood out for Clark?

“I think Anthony (Castonzo) did a really good job blocking, and I think he’s had a lot of ups and downs as we all have during camp,” he said. “But as rookies they’re a little more extreme because you don’t see the light quicker than the veterans. If you make a mistake as a veteran you kind of know what you have to do, but as a rookie you just kind of feel like the whole world is crumbling around you. But for him to go out there, he had some really good blocks and just did a really good job, so he’s the one that jumped out.”

Garcon sits out

Wide receiver Pierre Garcon paid a small price for his highlight-reel catch Saturday against the Rams.

The fourth-year receiver pulled in a 41-yard pass from Curtis Painter during the first quarter, flipping backward head-over-heels after making the grab.

He suffered what head coach Jim Caldwell termed a “contusion” on the play and did not participate in Monday’s afternoon practice. The injury isn’t considered serious, however, and Garcon could return as soon as today.

Others on the mend

Rookie linebacker Adrian Moten was wearing a boot on his right foot Monday, and he was listed as missing practice with an ankle injury in a team release.

Others who sat out Monday include: defensive end Jamaal Anderson (groin), defensive tackle Tommie Harris (hamstring), defensive back Joe Lefeged (groin), linebacker Ernie Sims (appendectomy) and offensive guard Jamie Thomas (back).

    For punter Pat McAfee there was just one little thing missing from Indianapolis Colts Training Camp this year.
    “My bed, not even a question. I love my bed. I enjoy Anderson University, obviously, but I’ve taken time on my bed to make it perfect for me and that’s what I’m excited to get back to,” McAfee said after the Colts’ final practice at AU on Thursday. “If I could have brought it here, which is what I should’ve done and what some vets do, it would have been a perfect experience.”

    A face familiar to Anderson football fans joined the Indianapolis Colts final huddle Thursday morning at Macholtz Stadium.

    One of the more interesting developments from Tuesday night’s practice was a shifting of positions along the offensive line.
    Rookie Anthony Castonzo and second-year player Joe Reitz were to the left of center Jeff Saturday, while Jeff Linkenbach was at right tackle with Ryan Diem at right guard.
    The biggest shock was Diem’s move from tackle to guard — a position he hasn’t played in nine years.
