COLTS NOTEBOOK: Training camp moves to Indianapolis for final phase

INDIANAPOLIS — The  location may have changed, but training camp continues on for the Indianapolis  Colts.

With the Anderson University portion of camp wrapping up a  three-weekrun last Friday, the Colts are spending the final days of the  pre-season schedule working out at the team’s own Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center.

There are two exhibition games remaining for Indianapolis, a  home matchup

with the Cleveland Browns Saturday night (7 p.m.) at Lucas Oil  Stadiumand a road trip to Cincinnati next Thursday.

During an  extended team meeting with his players Tuesday morning, Coltshead coach Chuck  Pagano stressed the importance of staying in a training campstate-of-mind for  the duration of the preseason.

“It feels like home and everybody’s  ready to get [to the] in-season routine. And even though we’re treating this  week like that, we’re still at camp,” Pagano repeated. “As I just told [the  players], it may look like West 56th [Street], but treat it like you’re still  at Anderson.

“We’re still in training cap mode. This is no time to get  complacent. We took a big step this past weekend [with a 20-12 pre-season win  over the New York Giants]. We certainly don’t want to take a step backwards.  So we’re still in training camp mode. And that’s the mindset we’ve got to  have.”

According to quarterback Andrew Luck, the coach’s message got  through loudand clear.

“We’re still in that training camp mentality.  We’re still trying to grind as much as we can during the day. And, honestly,  we are focused on the

Browns. We’re trying to make this as much game like it  would be during theseason,” Luck said.

“In my mind it’s like a dry  run [for the regular season]. Okay, here, let’s do it now and maybe we can  improve it before Week One.”

Getting ready for Cleveland

Since Saturday night’s  matchup with the

Browns will be the third pre-season game, look for  Indianapolis’ offensive and defensive starters to get maximum playing time.

“Normally, what  you’d like to do is play a half, go in, make your adjustments and come out and  play a series in that third quarter. Again, depending on how many plays we  play is to be determined, how we handle that situation. We always take it  case-by-case,” Pagano explained.

“If we  got a veteran guy that is over a number that we’ve deemed from a play-count  standpoint before the half, then we likely get a guy out. A guy like  [defensive end] Cory [Redding], a guy like [wide receiver] Reggie [Wayne]  those type of guys that have got enough snaps under their belt. Typically, go  in [at halftime], make your adjustments, come out, play a series in the third  quarter and start to make substitutions from there.”

A few  veteran players who have battled injuries during training camp — such as  inside linebacker Pat Angerer (foot) and strong safety LaRon Landry (knee) — might see their first playing time of the pre-season. Another  veteran free agent pickup, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, is not expected to  suit up, although that decision could change later this week.

“In a perfect  world, that’d be great. But [Bradshaw] is a veteran. He is a pro. He  understands what it takes to be ready once the season opener hits on [Sept. 8  against Oakland]. If we get that, that’s a bonus. If not, I’m not worried  about it,” the Colts coach said.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
