Luck: Having Reggie Wayne back will be ‘awesome’

The one pass Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck wished he had back last season didn’t necessarily result in an interception. It might have just been a ball that he threw behind a wide open Reggie Wayne against the Denver Broncos. Wayne turned to make a play on the ball and ended up tearing his ACL. recently released parts of an interview Luck had with Rich Gannon on Sirius XM NFL Blitz where he talked about the impact Wayne’s loss had on the team.

“It was tough with Reg out.  Obviously he’s (had) so much production and third downs and red zones and everything,” said Luck.  “It was a great opportunity for other guys to step up, for myself to get better as a quarterback.  Having him back is going to be awesome.”

While Wayne is healing from injury, Luck said he will be working on his footwork which should help with his accuracy.

“I think footwork, just making sure my feet are right,” said Luck.  “Pep Hamilton’s big on footwork.  Clyde Christensen, the quarterback coach, is big on getting your feet in the right place. I think that’s where all the throws start – making sure your body is in the right position.  It gives you a fighting chance.”
