Camping With the Colts, Day 10

Wednesday was a milepost day for the Colts in at least one way.   After a walkthrough in the morning, the Horseshoes suited up in full armor for a public practice last night that drew more than 9000 fans to Anderson University’s Macholtz stadium.   This was an important practice because it will be the last full-pad session of training camp, which wraps up on August 18.  After that date, it’s real-time mode for the Colts who will move to their normal in-season schedules and facilities.    Here are some of the notable happenings from Day 10:

  • Cornerback Jacob Lacey participated in the morning walkthrough and showed no ill effects from whatever cut short his practice on Tuesday.
  • Peyton Manning … didn’t practice again.  Surprised?
  • Bill Polian hinted that the Colts may keep three quarterbacks on the roster because of Manning’s neck.   Right now, those look to be Dan Orlovsky and Curtis Painter.
  • Joe Reitz and Jacques McClendon continue to battle for snaps at LG, and the race for the starting spot could go down to the wire.
  • Lots of guys didn’t participate in the night practice.  Among them: Manning, Jacob Lacey, Chris Brooks, Cody Glenn, Ernie Sims, DeMario Pressley, Jamaal Anderson, Jamey Richard, Jaimie Thomas, Joe Horn, Blair White, Brody Eldridge
  • Nate Davis struggling to stay in QB mix … fumbled snap, sack, short passes.
  • Jerry Hughes saw some time with the starting kickoff coverage unit.
