Colts QB Andrew Luck says his arm continues to feel “stronger and stronger.”
“My arm continues to feel stronger and stronger,” Luck said, via the Indianapolis Star. “I’ll get tired and I’ll recover and I’ll bounce back, and I feel like I’m on a great plan. It’s been a lot of fun so far.”
Luck added by the second practice he “started to feel like [he was] getting back into a groove.”
“The first practice was like, ‘What is going on? How do you hand the ball off? Where is everybody?’ I left practice feeling like I didn’t know what I just did,” Luck said. “Then the second practice it started to feel like (I was) getting back into a groove.
“The feeling has gotten more comfortable, more comfortable each day. I still have a few head-scratching moments in practice. I’ll throw a ball – I threw one the other day to T.Y., a deeper one – and I was like, ‘Alright, I have no idea where this ball is going. Let’s hope it ends up in the right place.’ I hadn’t thrown that route in a long time. There are still moments like that.”

Patriots WR Julian Edelman, who is working his way back from an ACL tear, admitted that he’s still working to get his “camp legs” under him.
“I feel like I got to get my legs under me a lot more. I don’t have my camp legs, I don’t have football legs, and it’s evident out there,” Edelman said, via ESPN.com.
Edelman says that he plans to keep grinding to get back in shape for the season.
“You get tired, you create bad habits, you don’t run your routes right and you get yelled at in meetings for it. I’m expecting to do that because I got to pick it up,” Edelman said. “I wasn’t as good as I want to be today and feeling that’s because I’m not in the best shape right now.”
“You just keep on going out and you grind. You keep on when you’re tired, when you don’t feel well. You got to be able to perform when things aren’t going great and that’s what this does. That’s what eight days in a row does and that’s what going out in training camp – there’s no light at the end of the tunnel right now. You got to go out and embrace it and take advantage of each day.”
