Here's Tuesday's Reading the Coverage:
  • Running back Trent Richardson has been the primary focus in training camp. Stephen Holder of the Indy Star talked to Richardson and the third-year back has his sights set on rushing for more than 1,000 yards for the first time in his young NFL career. "A thousand is not the goal,” Richardson said. “For me, it's personal. I'm going to keep it to myself. But a thousand is not it for me. It's higher."
  • It's probably fitting that Mike Chappell, the dean of Colts reporter at the Indy Star, talked to the veterans on the team -- Adam Vinatieri, Matt Hasselbeck and Reggie Wayne. Those are three oldest players at their position in the league. "As long as I'm an asset and not a liability, let's keep doing this," Vinatieri said. "I still love coming out here and sweating on a practice field. There's nothing like strapping on a helmet on game day. I know it's going to end at some point, but I'm very selfish when it comes down to (playing). I've tasted the victory of holding the Lombardi a few times and I want one more. I really do. People say, 'You've been in six (Super Bowls) and you've won four. What the hell?'”
  • Conrad Brunner of 1070thefan.com gives his sleepers to watch during the preseason. Keep an eye on offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison, receiver Ryan Lankford and linebacker Henoc Muamba, according to Brunner.
  • Kevin Bowen of Colts.com has his daily camp notebook, which is highlighted by the return of cornerback Vontae Davis and safety LaRon Landry to the practice field.
