HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the first day of camp) Training Camp “The weather cooperated for us today and gave us a nice, cool day to get started. I think our players appreciated that.

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the first day of camp) Training Camp

"The weather cooperated for us today and gave us a nice, cool day to get started. I think our players appreciated that. We had pretty good work in terms of tempo. We weren't quite as sharp as we would like to be, but all in all it was a good start and I think we are satisfied with practice number one."


HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the unusual sight of camp without Peyton Manning) Training Camp

"That (Peyton being at camp) has been a constant for me in the seven years of being here, having him take the first snaps. It was different, but I think everyone adjusted. Jim did a good job, and I think the offensive unit just relished the challenge and it was good. We have to get our other two quarterbacks up to speed on what we are doing, but all in all it was a good first day."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on having Marvin Harrison back) Training Camp

"Marvin did fine. He did all of his work and took his normal turns. We are going to see how it goes and see how he progresses, but for the first day it was encouraging. It was good to see him out there really smiling and just running easily. Quinn Gray and Jared Lorenzen did fine. They had the normal glitches that you would expect from just a couple of days to learn what was going on, but all in all did well."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how he will know if Marvin Harrison is OK) Training Camp

"For me, I try to read his face. When he is smiling and doesn't have that worried look, I think things are pretty much normal. That's how it was today. He has done a lot of work one on one, but hadn't done a lot of team work and he got in there and made his cuts, caught the ball and just looked like he felt comfortable, so that was good to see."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he can gauge how Marvin Harrison feels in the morning) Training Camp

"I don't really know. I think we will continue on assuming everything is going to be fine until we see otherwise."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on what he expects from Joseph Addai this year) Training Camp

"Joseph made a huge jump last year. His first year (2006), he was a very talented guy and you could see that, but it was all new to him. He was playing a lot, especially early in his rookie year, trying not to make a mistake, trying to just really listen and focus and pay attention to everything. Last year, I think things slowed down for him and the season went really well. This year he knows he is one of the guys that we are counting on and he has to provide that leadership role. He's just playing free and easy and he is a very talented guy, so we are expecting big things."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if Dominic Rhodes is glad to be back with the Colts) Training Camp

"I think he is. Dom is always a guy who is going to play with high energy. You are going to see his emotions, and that rubs off on the team. I think he is glad to be here. He understands how we function, and he knows he can be a big part of what we do. It was good to have him back there again for the first time in a year."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on Marvin Harrison's ability to return from injury) Training Camp

"Marvin is a guy that defies logic. I think he is going to be fine and ready to go, but we are trying to have somewhat of a monitor on him. We rely on him a lot to tell us how he feels and what he can do. He'll probably end up doing more than most of us think."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if Marvin Harrison is a rare find) Training Camp

"That's the hope, that you are dealing with a rare guy. We saw it with Jerry Rice, and you see it with very, very few people and Marvin shows every indication of being that way. When we looked at the tape from last year, the first four games, there was nothing that you could discern that was different from 2003 or 2005. So, if everything is right with him physically, we think we will get the same type of producti
