Colts wrap up work at AU

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

Luck completed 15 of 20 passes in the final practice of his second training camp. With veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne taking the day off to rest, Darrius Heyward-Bey was the quarterback's favorite target with five receptions.

Second-year wide receiver T.Y. Hilton — the star of this year's camp — made three grabs, and tight end Coby Fleener had two catches including Luck's only touchdown toss.

Safety Delano Howell, who made a name for himself with a solid performance in the preseason loss to Buffalo, intercepted Luck on a fade pattern in the end zone.

It was an otherwise quiet practice as Indianapolis finished up preparations for Sunday's second preseason outing.

"I thought we made progress, and I thought we got a lot out of this camp," head coach Chuck Pagano said. "Obviously, from Game 1 to Game 2, we are looking forward to playing on a national stage on Sunday night in New York, and we will just see how far we came progress-wise."

The roster slowly is getting healthier. Two starters — safety LaRon Landry and tight end Dwayne Allen — likely will not play Sunday, and linebacker Pat Angerer and running back Ahmad Bradshaw will wait at least one more week to make their preseason debuts.

But there was encouraging news on the injury front. Allen showed up for the morning practice without the boot he'd been wearing on his right foot since injuring it during the Aug. 6 night practice. Pagano said the second-year tight end is wearing an orthotic in his shoe and will switch back and forth between that and the walking boot.

"He is just day-to-day, and he is trending and progressing in the right direction," Pagano said. "So hopefully we get him back sooner than later."
