The Indianapolis Colts finished their last practice of their June mincamp today, and the veterans took the afternoon off as younger players received reps.

 

 

So the last practice before training camp open up next month was merely held to evaluate young rookies and where they can help the Colts in 2014.

One solid point of the day was Reggie Wayne taking time to talk to the media about his health and how ready he is for his 14th season in the NFL.

 

Wayne seems to be excited about this season for the Colts, and espicially the offense. “We can do some special thing.” Wayne said, and he would be upset if the offense did not rank in the top 5 of the league in several categories and total offense.

The Colts left camp however with several injuries, as projected starters LaRon Landry, Delano Howell, and Vontae Davis all battled injuries. Ryan Grigson said the team is not worried however, and all three should be ready by training camp.

Overall it was a solid camp for the Colts as rookies Donte Moncrief and Jack Mewhort all received praise on their efforts during the three days.

The Colts invited Brandon McKinney, a 6’2″ 345 pound nose tackle, who had missed the past two seasons with injuries. He was released last August by the Colts, but was given another chance at his comeback. After the tryouts this week the Colts re-signed him today. Giving them a much needed boost in the center of the defense. If healthy McKinney can be a dominant run blocker, something the Colts need.

So, for now we wait until July 23rd for the Colts training camp to open up in Anderson, Indiana. Chuck Pagano had something to say on the 34 day layoff.

 

Expectations are high for the Colts in 2014, and every player and coach knows it.
