Colts Notebook: Pagano loves camping away from home

ANDERSON, Ind. — The trend in the NFL has been toward teams staying home for training camp. In fact, now more than half the league's 32 teams train at their year-round facility.

But Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano sees benefit in camping away from home, and he's happy to be back at Anderson University this summer.

"We're just excited to be here," Pagano said after Sunday morning's walkthrough in Macholtz Stadium. "Hats off and many thanks to everybody here at the University of Anderson that helped to set this up. This is a huge undertaking when you move and you go away to camp. We love going away to camp. I think we're one of only 13 teams left in the league that are going away to camp.

"But this is a necessary evil, so to speak, as Robert Mathis can put it so eloquently. It's a necessary evil. It's a great time for us to come together as a team, keep building the family atmosphere that we have around here, get the competition going."

This is the fourth straight summer the Colts have trained in Anderson, and the 19th time overall. The team likely will announce sometime next spring whether it will return to campus for a 20th time next summer.

On the sideline

The Colts entered training camp with three players — running back Ahmad Bradshaw, inside linebacker Pat Angerer and defensive end Fili Moala — on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list and a fourth — rookie safety John Boyett — on the non-football injury list.

In addition to those players, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and rookie offensive guard Hugh Thornton did not participate in practice Sunday afternoon. Thornton wore a walking boot on his right foot.

Updates on both players are expected Monday.
