INDIANAPOLIS – New defense, same Andrew Luck.

That’s how things largely operated for Luck against the Baltimore Ravens on Friday afternoon.

While some drops didn’t aid the quarterback’s final numbers, he had another very solid day throwing the football in the first Colts/Ravens joint practice of camp.

Luck was 15-of-22 on Friday. He started hot, connecting on his first 8 passes to 7 different receivers.

Things then cooled down big time for the quarterback and his pass catchers. Luck went on to go 7-of-14 in the final 3 throwing periods, with a dropped interception. In total, Luck probably had 3-4 drops by his skill players.

Before team drills began, Luck had a nice session of 1-on-1s. Luck was very efficient in firing chunk completions to Chester Rogers and Eric Ebron.


When team periods started up, Luck and Hilton connected on the first play, before Jack Doyle emerged as the most consistent recipient of No. 12’s completions.


Friday’s practice did see Luck stretch the field early on, but the majority of his completions came on more intermediate throws.


Luck will throw in the final practice for the Colts at Grand Park coming Saturday afternoon. He is expected to play into the second quarter of next Monday’s preseason contest with the Ravens.
