No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck is participating in full-squad practice as an Indianapolis Colt for the first time this week. He’s gotten off to an up-and-down start typical for a rookie quarterback, but Luck is already garnering the admiration of teammates.
For instance, 12th-year veteran and five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Reggie Wayne has put himself squarely in Luck’s corner.
“We have some work to do, but I like him,” Wayne said after Wednesday’s minicamp practice. “He’s got a great ball, nice spin on it. He’s confident. He’s having fun out there. He’s not totally serious and whenever you have your leading quarterback out there having fun, you have no choice but to lay out for him.
“So far so good. We have a long ways to go, but I like where we are heading.”
According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, Luck completed 26 of his 37 pass attempts in Wednesday’s workout, including three spikes in a two-minute drill.
The Colts will wrap up minicamp on Thursday.
