Colts training camp: Coach Reich likes what he sees

WESTFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — With two days down at Colts training camp at Grand Park, head coach Frank Reich says he likes what he sees out of the team so far.

“You know, understanding that every little details matters, we talk about a phrase we use every now and then: ‘Every detail matters.’ Every little detail, every little meeting, so I feel like we are focused and on point,” said Reich, who is in his first year as coach.

Also on point is Andrew Luck’s return to the field. The quarterback continues to get back into the swing of it, and his coach has taken notice.

“I just think he’s gotten more crisp. You know, that’s a word we use every now and then. You got to have a snap and crispness to it because you got to play fast,” said Reich. “So, I think when you are rehabbing through an injury, there is a little bit where there’s not quite as crisp. We’ve seen that as we’ve talked. We’ve seen that get better and better.”

A lot of that crispness came to fruition during the time between mini camp and training camp. Andrew Luck went to California to continue to prepare for training camp this season, even receiving a visitor in the form of one of his wide receivers.

“Well initially, I told you I went out there for a contract to sign with the Warriors, and he just so happened to hit me up. It fell through, you know, they got their players.Yeah, they took Boogie,” said wide receiver Chester Rogers.

Rogers enters his third year in the league as one of the veterans in the receiving group, making that extra work with his quarterback out west all the more valuable for the upcoming fall.

“He just started throwing to a moving target, so just to get the chemistry back. I played one year with him, but just to get back on the same page and get back throwing. We still got a lot to work on, but I feel like we do have chemistry,” said Rogers. 

Hopefully that chemistry will continue to develop throughout camp with a healthy Luck.
