ALLEN GETTING BETTER
Tight end Dwayne Allen, who has been sidelined with a foot injury since early last week, was catching passes on the sidelines Friday morning. He was not wearing the walking boot he had been sporting the last several days.
“Yeah, he wears a splint. He’s got an orthotic in his shoe so he is going to go from the boot to the orthotic back to the boot,” Pagano explained. “He is just day-to-day and he is trending and progressing in the right direction. Hopefully we get him back sooner than later.”
WAYNE SITS OUTS
Veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne was given the day off Friday. He spent most of the workout throwing passes to the rest of the team’s receiving corps.
When asked the reason for the absence of the 13-year veteran, Pagano had a quick response.
“It was his 30-plus day,” the Colts coach chuckled, referring to the receivers age (34).
The final head count for the three weeks of training camp at Anderson University was 37,649 for 15 total practices.
That’s an average of 2,509 per public workout. Last year’s average attendance was 1,978 over 14 practices.
While it’s assumed that Anderson will once again host training camp in 2014, an official decision isn’t expected until next spring. The Colts and Anderson University operate under a series of one-year contracts, similar to what was done during the team’s stay at Rose-Hulman from 1999 to 2009.
