Burning Topics heading into the final week of Colts Training Camp

Posted by Kevin Bowen on August 12, 2013 – 4:20 pm

The Colts will conclude their 2013 training camp at Anderson University this Friday.

Practices will take place each afternoon through Thursday, before a final Friday morning session wraps up three weeks in Anderson.

With a preseason game in the books, here’s a look at five topics to focus on before the Colts travel east this weekend to take on the New York Giants.

Andrew Luck looking for scoring drives: It was a short, but solid, afternoon for the Colts first-team offense on Sunday.

Luck admitted to a mental error with his cadence at the line of scrimmage that led to a sack. Also, a Coby Fleener fumble ended a potential scoring drive.

Against the Bills, Luck was 4-of-6 for 41 yards. Expect the Colts second-year quarterback to get a few more series of action on Sunday night.

Putting together sustained drives, ending in points, is a point of emphasis this week.

Getting DHB his first catch with the Colts: Darrius Heyward-Bey is still working his way back from a knee sprain.

He ran with the first unit against the Bills but did not record a catch.

Expect DHB to get some more 11-on-11 work in practice this week as the Colts try to solidify a potent top three receiver group in Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and DHB.

Starting offensive line needs to stay in tact: This goes without saying but given the depth behind the starting five, keeping the current unit healthy is vital.

Each member of the starting five has been out there for every practice during training camp which is a welcoming sign with two new starters being brought in.

Backup Joe Reitz got multiple quarters at left tackle against the Bills after primarily working at guard in the early part of training camp.

If the Colts can get rookies Hugh Thornton and Khaled Holmes back out on the practice field than the offensive line would have some depth as the midway point of the preseason approaches.

LB-Justin Hickman could be done for the year: Chuck Pagano said Hickman’s foot injury suffered against the Bills is potentially season ending.

Hickman was starting at ILB on Sunday with Pat Angerer, Jerrell Freeman, Mario Harvey and Josh McNary all sidelined with injuries.

The competition for a starting spot next to Freeman seems to be between Kavell Conner and Kelvin Sheppard, at least until the names mentioned above return from various injuries.

Waiting for the debuts of LaRon Landry and Bjoern Werner: Two of the Colts more intriguing defenders sat out against Buffalo with minor injuries.

Having Werner back out on the field this week, as Pagano said he expects, will help a Colts pass rush that recorded just one sack and one quarterback hurry in the preseason opener.

At the backend of the defense, the Colts missed five safeties with Landry the headliner of the group.

If Landry makes his debut next weekend, he will do it in the stadium that he called home in 2012 with the New York Jets.

Also, the Giants are an opponent Landry knows well after five seasons with the Washington Redskins.
