Colts will again bring new look to AU

(Continued)

"Guys seem to be getting it, digesting it a little bit and going out there on the field and putting it to work," veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne said during organized team activities earlier this month. "So, hopefully, we can go out there and make (Hamilton) look good. So far we are 1-0 on getting OCs a head coaching job. So maybe he's up next."

The Colts could feature as many as nine new starters this season, and six of those likely would come on defense. The defensive line has been upgraded with free agents Ricky Jean Francois and Aubrayo Franklin, either free agent Erik Walden or first-round rookie Bjoern Werner will start opposite Robert Mathis at outside linebacker and Kelvin Sheppard — acquired in a trade from Buffalo for linebacker Jerry Hughes — could push for a spot at inside linebacker.

But the biggest impact likely will be in the secondary, where cornerback Greg Toler and strong safety LaRon Landry likely will start after signing rich free-agent deals.

Fans can watch everything come together during 15 open practices at AU. Highlights include a night session on Tuesday, Aug. 6, and two Sunday matinees — including the first public practice of camp on July 28.

The Colts will play a preseason game at Lucas Oil Stadium against Buffalo on Aug. 11, and training camp breaks after an early afternoon session on Aug. 16.

As he said farewell to the media at the close of mini-camp, Luck was happy with the work Indianapolis already had done. And he was already itching to continue the work in Anderson.

"We're nowhere near perfect," he said. "I would hope we're not near perfect at this point. I think it was great to have the whole team together, to start to see some of the pieces come into place and to see guys compete. I'm happy to get this part done and have the break and really looking forward to training camp now."
