INDIANAPOLIS – The efficient camp of Andrew Luck saw a couple of errant tosses fall into the hands of defenders on Monday.

Luck threw two interceptions on Monday, his first multi-turnover day in 11 throwing practices at Grand Park.

An airmail/overthrow of Ryan Grant (which Quincy Wilson hauled in for the pick) and then a miscommunication with Grant (which D.J. White picked off), came off throws that Luck is specifically drilling a little more this week.

The quarterback wants to work on throwing the ball vertically and also clean up timing issues with his new weapons.

“That is a little bit of a focus this week,” Luck said after going 13-of-18 during Monday’s practice. “Getting more reps with Eric Ebron and Ryan Grant and some of the guys that I don’t quite feel that I’m on the same page with 100 percent of the time. That’s part of missing an offseason.”

 

With T.Y. Hilton sitting out team drills on Monday, Luck targeted his tight ends a lot in another full-padded practice.

 

Luck’s evaluation from his first game action in 19 months has the quarterback pleased overall, but pointing to needing to be a bit crisper with his footwork.

 

The quarterback did admit he was emotionally exhausted after last Thursday’s preseason opener, with such a range of emotions coming from his return to game action, some three time zones away.

 

Diving deeper into Luck’s performance from last Thursday, he’s definitely getting rid of the ball quicker.

 

Pro Football Focus clocked Luck’s time to throw at 2.45 seconds in his 11 throws against Seattle. For his career, Luck has averaged 2.85 seconds to throw.

 

The Colts want Luck to get rid of the ball quicker in Frank Reich’s offense, and No. 12 has said that aspect of this offense is something new in 2018.

 

With the Colts planning to have Luck throw a lot this week, he will have ample opportunities to clean up the remaining areas of work.

 

Luck will throw in each of the 4 remaining practices for the Colts at Grand Park: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. He is expected to play into the second quarter of next Monday’s preseason contest with the Ravens.

 

Here is a look at Luck’s numbers in his 11 practices at Grand Park:
