DB-MIKE DOSS (on looking at the film from the game against Chicago)

"I learned a lot in our first game. I'm getting some of the details down. We want to get out there and correct some of our mistakes."

DB-MIKE DOSS (on what needs to be improved on the defense)

"We want to get stops on third and long. We want to step up to the challenge on four downs in the regular season to come up with a win."

DL-MONTAE REAGOR (on getting two sacks in the first pre-season game)

"I came here to be explosive and help out the defensive line. I want to maintain a high level of intensity and do things the right way."

DL-MONTAE REAGOR (on making the most of his opportunity)

"Well, I was playing behind Trevor Pryce in Denver for four years. You don't get many chances playing on the field behind a pro-bowler. The things that he taught me, I tried to use on the football field. Now, I am coming into my own and I am excited about it."

DL-MONTAE REAGOR (on his transition to the Colts)

"The transition was easy for me. I had my coach, John Teerlinck, with me in Denver for four years. I know what he expects of me and I know what kind of player he wants."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the running back injuries)

"We are in the same position as we were last year. We have Dominic (Rhodes), who is not ready to go. Ricky (Williams) and James (Mungro) will probably be out for two-to-three weeks. They were both having good camps. We are in a situation now where we have two healthy backs for the next two weeks. We are going to have to look for someone and Bill (Polian) and the personal department are working on that."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the linebackers getting experience in the game against the Bears)

"The younger guys took advantage of their opportunities in the game. Gary Brackett played very well. Keyon Whiteside got a chance to play. Those guys will get a lot of practice time in the next two weeks."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on RB-Brian Allen's performance)

"Well, probably the only thing that Brian could have done better was to stay in-bounds on the long run. He ran well, pass protected well and pass protected in the back field. He did everything that we asked him to do. That is the kind of performance that he had last year before he got hurt. We expect a lot of good things from him."

DB-NICK HARPER (on the importance of pre-season games)

"Even though I did not play a lot, you have to sit back and see how the other guys were playing. You never know if you might see that team again, so you always want to correct yourself."

RB-MONTREL LOWE (on getting another chance)

"All you can do is pray and hope for an opportunity. I thought it was a great situation for me here and unfortunately, it did not work out for me. All you can do is keep working out and get ready for the next team."

RB-MONTREL LOWE (on his role on the team)

"You might think that you are a short term fix. But if you think about that, you are not thinking about your role on the field. The only thing that I can do is get better everyday, progress in my plays and get better as a kick/punt returner. I'll do what I can do on the field and let the chips fall as they may."

DB-DAVID GIBSON (on difference in second year with Colts)

"It's nice to come here and get acclimated. Camp is a chance to build as a unit with the guys and work with them one on one. I feel more comfortable, being my second year and we're ready for a great season."

DB-DAVID GIBSON (on differences between Colts and Buccaneers defensive system)

"There are subtle differences, but it is basically the same defense. The more you are in something the easier it gets and I am very comfortable."

WR-CARL MORRIS (on why the Colts contacted him for training camp)

"They were looking for a receiver with size who could be a solid possession receiver and make plays for them here and there. And at the time, they didn't have too many guys with size, and I think that was a factor."

WR-CARL MORRIS (on why he chose football over economics)

"It's a fun way to make a living. It's every kids dream and it a once in a lifetime chance. The business world will always be there, and I want to play on this side as long as I can."

WR-CARL MORRIS (on his receiving a fair shot on the football field)

"Yeah, I feel that I have. But sometimes I feel like that people look at me differently because of where I went to school (Harvard). That goes with a lot of the small schools, and a lot of D3 players go through it, but I'm not worried though.
