Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is healthy and armed with a new contract making him the highest paid playeer in NFL history.
But according to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, Luck has had an uneven training camp.
“I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, for sure, like anybody in training camp,” Luck said Thursday, moments after the Colts wrapped up their final workout at Anderson University. “I’d like to think that I haven’t repeated any of the same mistakes. That’s part of practice, making mistakes, but you try not to repeat them.”
Luck is working with a new offensive coordinator, a new position coach, a new scheme and new techniques. It’s the biggest makeover of his young career.
Luck will start his first football game in nine months come Saturday, when the Colts open the preseason in Buffalo. He admitted there was a sliver of excitement after all that went wrong at the end of 2015.
Finally, after three weeks of practice, it’s time to play football.
“I like where Andrew’s at,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “We gotta get him in a game and get him with the offense and go see how they perform when it’s live bullets.”
