HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Players who only do one-a-day practices) Monday, August 02, 2010

"We do have quite a few guys who we are monitoring. We don't have many two-a-days in the system that we're using. We have just a couple. So, all those days when we do have two practices we're going to juggle those guys around. Some will practice in the morning and some will practice in the afternoon. It keeps some balance in the squad."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Who's on PUP list) Monday, August 02, 2010

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Rookies falling behind if they miss camp) Monday, August 02, 2010

"I think that it's fortunate that we had three days prior to coming into camp for rookie workouts. We get an opportunity to immerse them in our system. So the young guys, rookies, young veterans can get reacquainted with what we do. As long as it doesn't last too long. If you're referring to Jerry Hughes he will be here this afternoon."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Jerry (Hughes) coming to camp) Monday, August 02, 2010

"We believe he will be here this afternoon."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Wide receivers) Monday, August 02, 2010

"We have an offense that certainly spreads the ball around quite a bit and we need as many options as we can possibly have. Over the years that has boded well for us. Obviously Dallas (Clark) is in that mix as well along with the wide receivers that we have. I think there will be plenty of time to catch the ball and do something with it after they catch it."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Value of Deshea (Townsend)) Monday, August 02, 2010

"Obviously he's going to help. He's going to help in terms of great experience. He's been around the block a little bit. Anybody with that kind of experience who has played as well as he has is going to be of great value to us, so I think he'll blend in quickly. Probably not too many things he hasn't seen. He's a real technician and we're happy to have him."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: How Bob (Sanders) looked at practice) Monday, August 02, 2010

"Bob performed well. He moved around well. We're pleased with what we see."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Bob (Sanders) getting a chance to play) Monday, August 02, 2010

"There's no question about it. He's been through a bit these past few seasons and we hope to God he's finished going through those tough times and get back to normal. I know he's in great spirits and that he feels really good, and we hope he stays that way."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: All safeties playing to their strengths) Monday, August 02, 2010

"There are a lot of different packages, a lot of different options for us. We just try to use our personnel the best we can. The more guys we have available the more things we can do. It does give us an opportunity to create some matchup problems."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Donald (Brown) being healthy) Monday, August 02, 2010

"Yes, Donald Brown was moving around well today. He felt good. You can see he has that pep back in his step. He's off to a good start."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: Temperatures in Anderson) Monday, August 02, 2010

"It wasn't as bad as it's been. That's for certain. There's a bit of a breeze out there, but we know this afternoon it will heat up. I think it's good for us. You have to get a sense of putting the body under a little bit of stress. We have to get a feel for it because we're going to have to play in weather like this. Obviously last year against Miami it was a sweltering night. This is good to get acclimated."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: economic struggles in Anderson) Monday, August 02, 2010

"I have not had an opportunity to drive through the town, but I am well aware that Anderson, much like a number of cities across the country, are all being stretched to the limit in terms of job loss and things of that nature. That makes, even more so, what they've done for us absolutely amazing. They've bent over backwards for us. They've done a tremendous job putting together the resources. Anderson University has done a great job in terms of facilities and making this a really fine place for us to prepare."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: What the Colts can do for the city) Monday, August 02, 2010

"I think anytime that you can bring people in, there are a number of people from all over the country that came in, that brings in revenue. When we were signing autographs out there, there were people from New Jersey, Kentucky, Ohio, different parts of Illinois. Anytime you can bring revenue to a city it's going to help, and fortunately we have a bunch of good guys on our team who are well-respected and represent our franchise extremely well, and they draw people in and that's a great thing. Our owner does a great job as well as far as community involvement. We'll do whatever we can to help."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: competition on offensive line) Monday, August 02, 2010

"We really have to find out quite a bit about our offensive line this preseason. We have numerous guys who are playing multiple positions, tackles, guards, centers, some rotations in there. So it will be great fun to see those guys react, but we have a couple spots in there that we really have to anticipate guys who are going to come through and play well and play consistently well."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on: rotating on offensive line) Monday, August 02, 2010

"We do a lot of rotating and the numbers dictate that."
