The buzz in Indianapolis is palpable as Andrew Luck and the new era Colts took the field for the first time Friday. It seems everyone is excited except for the rookie quarterback. He notes that he didn’t want to add too much drama to what amounts to a relatively benign practice. Turns out that coolness is exactly what the team needs:
“He’s unflappable,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “He’s a natural leader.”
Receiver T.Y. Hilton, a third-round draft choice, admitted he was nervous but said Luck “settled me down.”
Luck said he arrived in town Thursday and was tired from a long flight.
“It’s nice to get back and practice football,” he said.
