Intro: The Colts held their second mini-camp practice of 2015 on Wednesday night in front of fans at Lucas Oil Stadium. What did fans see in their first look at the 2015 Colts?





INDIANAPOLIS – They came via cars from Arizona and Texas, all to get their first glimpse at the 2015 Indianapolis Colts.

The doors to Lucas Oil Stadium were opened on Wednesday for fans to witness the Colts second mini-camp practice of 2015.

An empahsis on red-zone and two-minute work, an area the Colts want to improve offensively and defensively this season, was the focus of the open practice.

"Obviously a spirited practice," Chuck Pagano said after the Colts worked for around two hours on Wednesday.

"I really want to thank the fans, first and foremost, for coming out and supporting these guys. I think we've got the best fans in the National Football League. They were tremendous tonight and hopefully we gave them something to cheer about and something to look forward to."

**Practice Notes

**-The Colts had virtualy the same first-team look as they did at Tuesday's first mini-camp practice, with Hugh Thornton being rotated in a bit more with the starters at left guard.

-Andre Johnson gave fans their first look at what he is trying to bring to Indianapolis. Johnson's size carved out space for a back-line touchdown during red zone work and the 12-year vet followed with a leaping grab during two-minute work.

-Another big receiver showed off his size on Wednesday. Second-year man Donte Moncrief went behind his body for one reception in two-minute drills and had another snag later in the session.

-Safety Mike Adams had the defensive highlight on the evening. Adams, just like he was for so much of 2014, was in the right spot at the right time for an end zone interception, after what looked like some misccomucnation between Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener.

-At the age of 42, Adam Vinatieri had a long of 61 yards on the night, bringing out what might have been the loudest cheer from the crowd assembled.

-Dwayne Allen got banged up on a play where new safety Dwight Lowery forced a pass deflection. It appeared to be Allen's left leg that took him to the ground. The fourth-year tight end returned for 7-on-7 work a few plays later and told the media he was okay following practice.

-Wednesday's mini-camp ended with Jim Irsay speaking to the team. Irsay presented Robert Mathis with a watch in honor of the 2013 Deacon Jones Award (most sacks in the NFL). The Owner/CEO also spoke on how special he believes this season can be for the Colts. will have more on Irsay's meeting with the team and the media later tonight.
