Until Monday, when Chris Ballard announced that Frank Reich had tested positive for the CoronaVirus, the major storylines from Indianapolis Colts training camp were all on the field.

That definitely has changed. And now Reich will have to watch the first few Colts practices from afar.

But it’s not like he wasn’t used to Zoom over the last year-and-a-half.

Thankfully, Reich is asymptomatic; And the Blue and White are all set to go for practice numero uno tomorrow.

Let us add as well, WITH FANS!

Grand Park will be buzzin’ over the next few weeks. But what is the juiciest storyline or angle of camp this year?

The obvious answer is Carson Wentz taking his first meaningful snaps in the horseshoe helmet.

But aside from the new Colts QB, there are some major questions to be answered on the defensive line. Left tackle too.

Is Kwity Paye ready to take such a massive role in his rookie year? How long will it be for Dayo Odeyingbo? What about Eric Fisher? Will Darius Leonard miss a considerable amount of time rehabbing following ankle surgery?

Another that comes to mind is why the running back core of Marlon Mack, Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, and Jordan Wilkins is not getting more of a national buzz.

As DD pointed out on The Dan Dakich Show Tuesday, the kicking competition also shouldn’t fly under the radar.

Rodrigo Blankenship was good in his rookie year, but not great.

Quite frankly, he missed a few chip shots that ended up costing the Colts in the long run. And Eddy Pineiro didn’t come to Indy for a haircut. He’s an established kicker.

And considering Pineiro is accustomed to kicking in more harsh conditions, i.e. the frozen tundras Soldier Field or Lambeau Field, as opposed to some others who kick inside consistently, that is obviously something to watch.

It’s time to go to work.
