The man who is in charge of protecting the blindside of Andrew Luck returned to practice on Thursday afternoon.
With Castonzo returning to the lineup, it looks like the Colts will have their starting offensive line in tact to start the season.
“It all starts up front,” offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said Thursday. “Our offensive line has consistently gotten better since the start of camp. We expect that we’re going to be able to come out and control the line of scrimmage. That’s our ultimate goal.”

Keefer’s feature on Luck looks at the signal caller away from the gridiron and the low profile he has kept after on year in the NFL.
“I try not to get too wound up in the commercial side of things,” Luck says. “And I wanted to be sure with anything I did … could I put my whole heart in it?”
Luck was busy, after all; the extracurriculars were simply bumped down the list. He finished his degree at Stanford, moved into a downtown Indianapolis apartment and dove into his new playbook. Football came first. The rest waited its turn.
“A big part of me wanted to make sure: If you can handle things on the football field, the opportunities will come,” Luck said.
