Found August 03, 2013 on Juan Elway:
Yes, I’m ready to break out Juan…next question Coby Fleener disappointed a bit in his rookie season due to inconsistencies and injuries.  Coming into his second season all indications are that Fleener is making big strides under his former OC from Stanford Pep Hamilton.  Here is what his OC is saying about the talented TE: Pep Hamilton: “Probably having the most productive camp, including his time at Stanford, that I’ve seen. In the time that I’ve been around Coby, he’s a lot more explosive and confident right now and he’s making plays that big-time NFL players tend to make.” Fleener is a ‘move’ TE that can get vertical.  The guy can run.  The Colts will look to use multiple TE sets and get Fleener down the seam.  Dwayne Allen is a more complete TE and will most likely be asked to stay in and block.  Andrew Luck could take a hug leap this year and Fleener could be one of the guys that mosts benefits from his jump.

Indianapolis Colts Training Camp: Reggie Wayne Speaks Out

The Colts' first week of training camp is complete. Here's what you missed, and what you need to know moving forward. With an 11-win season in the rear view, the Indianapolis Colts must now move forward from an emotional year. As the team rallied around coach Chuck Pagano's fight with leukemia, it did what few thought possible. It won. To continue winning, the Colts...

Past and present Indianapolis Colts HOF chances

The Pro Football Hall of Fame yesterday inducted seven new members into its hallowed halls: G Larry Allen, WR Cris Carter, DTs Curley Culp and Warren Sapp, OT Jonathan Ogden, LB Dave Robinson, and coach Bill Parcells. It’s as  strong a Hall of Fame class as there has ever been (not that they aren’t all good picks, it is the Hall of Fame after all), but it got me wondering: Based...

DHB Injuries Knee…Door is Open For T.Y. Hilton

Here’s my shot Juan… Not much news available on the severity of the injured knee suffered by DHB, but apparently he had his knee wrapped after practice today.  The Colts did not give a timetable on his return, but this could be the opportunity Hilton needs to separate himself from the veteran WR.   Hilton had 50 catches for 861 yards and 7 TDs to finish 29th among WRs with...

Former Colt Austin Collie finds work with the 49ers

Former Indianapolis Colts receiver Austin Collie, plagued with quite a concussion history, has signed with the San Francisco 49ers, reports Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, who called it a “done deal." Collie was one of few wideouts looking to latch onto a team in the midst of training camps around the league. He worked out of the 49ers on two occasions and they apparently were...

Indianapolis adds swagger, confidence to defense

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Chuck Pagano and Andrew Luck have seen a different Colts defense at training camp. Players are confident, aggressive and have Luck scrambling. It's a stark contrast to what Indy fans have watched for most of the last decade: A potent offense taking big leads and a defense holding onto them. Pagano wanted...

Colts to become a run first team?

My disdain for the Colts’ offensive attack has never been a secret. Since the early 2000s, the Colts have too often abandoned the running game, focusing on an air-it-out attack that won piles of games, but rarely took them deep in the playoffs. Now, it seems the Colts are considering a change, for better or worse. “Well, the time constraints in the NFL are just as challenging...

Colts' Darrius Heyward-Bey out with sprained knee

The Indianapolis Colts newly acquired wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey left practice Sunday with a sprained left knee, according to the Indianapolis Star-Telegram.

Heyward-Bey was acquired as a free agent this past offseason...

49ers sign wide receiver Austin Collie

The San Francisco 49ers have signed wide receiver Austin Collie. Known for big plays and concussions the 27-year-old Collie would be a upgrade for an injury depleted 49ers core of receivers. Collie appeared in just one game last season before rupturing his right patellar tendon. Prior to signing with the 49ers, Collie worked out for the Patriots, Jets and Dolphins. In Collie’s...

Crazy Colts Fan - Colts Didn't Even Try to Keep Dwight Freeney? Now That's Just Wrong!

After the 2011 season the Indianapolis Colts had almost a complete face-lift with many of the team's recognizable faces finding new homes. Longtime defensive stud Dwight Freeney survived the aftermath then, but alas, this past off-season saw him leave Indianapolis and land in San Diego. It wasn't too shocking a move. Freeney isn't a spring chicken anymore...

Indy offense goes old school with new coordinator

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Pep Hamilton is giving the Colts' offense a bold, new look. They have a fullback. They have Reggie Wayne working out of the slot. They have bigger offensive linemen protecting Andrew Luck. No, it's not the trendy thing in a league now enamored with running quarterbacks and the read-option. But Hamilton, the offensive...

The San Francisco 49ers’ signed former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie to a one year contract on Friday, according to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling.
