Here's Friday's Colts' Reading the Coverage. ...
Tim Evans of the Indy Star has a story on Colts owner Jim Irsay facing an Aug. 28 trial date on his two misdemeanor charges related to driving under the influence of prescription drugs back in March.
Phil Richards of the Indy Star writes about the Colts signing defensive tackle Brandon McKinney for a second time. The Colts originally signed him in 2012 but he spent two seasons on injured reserve before being released.
Stephen Holder of the Star has a story on how the Colts are optimistic that the offense will be more successful in offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton's second season with the team. "I feel like I learned more from my mistakes than our successes," Hamilton said. "That's just part of the process."
Kevin Bowen of Colts.com gives a final wrap on the Colts minicamp, highlighted by college basketball player-turned-NFL-player Erik Swoope catching the eye of Hamilton. Swoope played college basketball at the University of Miami but has never played football at any level until now. “It's been a pleasant surprise just to see how he's been able to acclimate himself to the game of football," Hamilton said. “His natural-born talents show every day in practice. He does an amazing job of going up and catching the football, making difficult catches. He has a catching radius that's off the charts. It'll be interesting to see how he comes along during training camp when we put the pads on and actually start practicing football."
