ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) - The Colts opened up week two of training camp in Anderson Monday afternoon. The unique aspect of this week, however, is it ends with the team's first preseason game against the Bills at home Sunday.
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said the focus remains on the team improving rather than on Buffalo. Luck's personal focus continues to be on upping his completion percentage from last season, where he ranked 31 of the league's 32 quarterbacks.
"The ball needs to be in the playmakers' hands," said Luck. "I don't need to be running with the ball. The ball doesn't need to be on the ground. It needs to be in those guys' hands, so it's important to get it there."
Luck is also continually benefitting from the knowledge of veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who the team brought in as his backup in the offseason.
"He's been around the block, done everything at the quarterback position, and he's got a lot of history with a lot of different concepts," said Luck. "He does a great job of relaying that information to both Harnish and I. We've learned a lot from him."
"Matt has a wealth of knowledge and has a great personality," said Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. "The reason that's important is he's not a distraction in any way to Andrew. He's more of a pillar of support, and his experience over the years is priceless."
