Tuesday's Top Ten Training Camp Notes

What are the top ten things Colts fans should know about today's practices? Big news about Marlin Jackson, kickoff returns, and more! Enjoy our detailed look at the action, exclusively for our ColtPower Insiders!

1. Last year's top draft pick, Marlin Jackson, is getting some work at right cornerback during the first two days at camp. That's Jason David's usual spot. Jackson backed up Nick Harper on the left side last year and was the nickel back.

2. Shaun King is understandably still getting used to the new offense. While most of the quarterbacks are being pretty conservative with their throws, he's thrown into some coverage at times, which could simply be a display of confidence in his abilities. As he continues to learn the offense, his veteran experience should pay off.

3. Sixth-round pick Antoine Bethea has been tossed into the fire, working with the first-team on just the second day of camp due to Mike Doss's calf injury. Bethea is wearing Cory Bird's old jersey number (41) and looks similar to him in stature and physical build. We'll continue to watch him over the next few days to see how he does as he settles in.

4. There was no sign of linebacker Dale Robinson, despite the fact that he had been added back onto the Colts roster.

5. Afer offseason elbow surgery, wide receiver Marvin Harison is making his usual athletic catches, snaring a few off his shoestrings and diving to make great catches when necessary.

6. One play during the morning practice that brought out some playful jabs and laughs involved defensive back Dexter Reid. He tried to take down tight end Bryan Fletcher on the play and literally appeared to bounce off of Fletcher before falling to the turf.

7. Cornerback Kelvin Hayden practiced Tuesday afternoon. He was on the sidelines during the morning session as a precaution after experiencing problems with the heat during Monday afternoon's session.

8. During afternoon special teams work, the Colts did kickoff returns without any tackling, so it's still bit early to tell who is capable of sparking some big returns. Ashlan Davis continues to look very quick out there. Iowa's Ed Hinkle, veteran Terrence Wilkins, Miami rookie Tanard Davis and seventh-rounder T.J. Rushing got some work in. Rushing looked poised and fluid out there for a rookie. Davis, who has good speed, bobbled a couple of attempts.

9. Montae Reagor will likely miss a couple of days after experiencing some soreness in his knee. The team was concerned enough about the soreness that he had an MRI done. Reagor had a knee problem in late December last year and sat out the final two regular season games along with other Colts who weren't 100 percent healthy at the time.

10. Reggie Wayne didn't show any problems with focusing on the ball after accidentally getting poked in the eye during yesterday afternoon's practice.
