Luck to Andre Johnson. Get used to it.

Luck to Johnson. Luck to Johnson. Luck to Johnson. Get used to it.

No receiver has caught more passes from Andrew Luck over the first two days of camp than Andre Johnson, the veteran target who is settling in just fine in his new offense. Why? So much of the Colts’ aerial attack centers on the home run (see: the speed of T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Duron Carter). That allows Johnson ample space to get open underneath, and that’s all he’s done in the first two practices of the 2015 season. And Luck has looked his way over and over again.

Johnson might not catch the long passes that Hilton, Moncrief and Carter grab this season, but he’s going to catch plenty. He’s averaged 84 catches a year for 12 years. Don’t be shocked if he hauls in more this coming season, even at age 34.

Also of note, Carter made his first highlight play of training camp, darting behind rookie safety Clayton Geathers for a deep touchdown catch. Moncrief earned one of his own later in the practice, fighting for a contested ball over second-year cornerback Deveron Carr and hauling it in for a score.

Needless to say, the passing game looks alright.
