With mini camp winding down, it’s time to look forward a bit to training camp time. What should Colts fans be eager to see?
Colts fans have been watching mini camp closer this year than most years in the past. That has everything to do with Andrew Luck and his recovery from a shoulder injury. But now that he has been seen throwing footballs, what else should fans be looking forward to?
Luck’s progress is still going to be the number one thing to watch. JIm Irsay has said that Luck will have no restrictions during training camp. Fans should wait and see if that is the case. By that point, Luck should be throwing an NFL sized football with ease.
Fans should also be eager to see the roster battles that will be had. There are starting positions open for grabs everywhere on the defense. The entire linebacking corp is up for debate, as is most of the defensive line. The secondary will have quite a few new faces as well.
The coaching staff may be the most underrated thing to watch during training camp. They are brand new and camp will give fans the first real look at the new offensive and defensive systems that the team will be running. It’ll give an insight into what kind of plays the Colts will run to keep Luck healthy as well.
The fans should also look at the brand new venue where the Colts will be. They will be in Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana this season. As a Westfield resident for the first 18 years of my life, it is a great town that has a state of the art sports complex there in Grand park and it will be a great place for the Colts to hold camp.
Training camp will answer a lot of questions. Colts fans can only wait to see what those answers are.
