“I’m very excited about Carson, he is in such a great place, he is so excited,” Irsay said, via The Athletic’s Zac Keefer. “He is absolutely in the type of place you want your quarterback to be in. He is really excited and in a groove and he can’t have a better coach in Frank Reich.”
- The Athletic’s Zak Keefer mentioned Colts QB Jacob Eason has pole position for the backup quarterback spot.
- Keefer said CB Rock Ya-Sin could be in danger of being pushed down the depth chart if he doesn’t get off to a fast start.
- According to Keefer, while LT Eric Fisher recovers from his achilles injury, the left tackle competition in camp will be between OTs Sam Tevi, Julie’n Davenport and Will Holden.
- Keefer thinks first-round DE Kwity Paye could start week one.
