HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the reduced number of players in camp) Training Camp

"As coaches, you adjust to the numbers, and it is what it is. We've got our tempo established pretty well and I think we are going to be fine. My major complaint with the whole thing has been that we have some guys that we would like to have here that we are not going to get a chance to look at. We will be fine numbers wise."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how different RB Dominic Rhodes looks from his last stint as a Colt from 2001-06) Training Camp

"He really doesn't look that different. He's very comfortable with the offense, he's still running with a lot of energy and he still enjoys being out on the field. All in all, he doesn't look like he's missed a beat."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on what it is like having RB Dominic Rhodes back with the team) Training Camp

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how QBs Quinn Gray and Jared Lorenzen are developing) Training Camp

"They are doing well. There is a lot to learn, some of it is carryover from where they've been, but it's putting everything together. They are making throws where they are a little bit off because they are just not quite sure where the receivers are going to be. All-in-all, they've done a good job of acclimating themselves."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on whether QB Peyton Manning has reported to camp) Training Camp

"He is doing fine. We are still trying to keep him immobile and that is the biggest fight. I think the farther away we can keep him, the better chance we have of keeping him immobile. I'm not at liberty to say where he is at this point, but he is immobile, I can tell you that."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on TE Jacob Tamme) Training Camp

"Jacob is a guy that I think is going to fit in to our offense well, similar to guys like (former TE) Marcus Pollard, (current TE) Dallas Clark and (former TE) Ben Utecht.
