Colts | Addai gets off to good start; RB competition underway

Reggie Hayes, of the News-Sentinel, reports Indianapolis Colts rookie RB Joseph Addai got off to a good start at practice Monday, July 31. He earned a tie for loudest applause from fans during his first day in training camp. Addai sparked the cheer by breaking an early-morning scrimmage run for about 20 yards. "It felt good to come out there and build a little confidence," Addai said. "I just have to keep taking reps and understand what's going on, understand who does what. I'm a team player. Whatever gets the job done, block for the pass, catch the ball, run, I'm going to do." Addai and RB Dominic Rhodes both worked with the first team at times during scrimmage sessions in both full pads in the morning and helmets and shorts in the afternoon. QB Peyton Manning praised Addai for executing on the patented stretch play that James ran to perfection. Rhodes caught Manning's eye with his hands. Head coach Tony Dungy hasn't said whether the Colts plan to settle on one primary back or alternate between Addai, Rhodes and possibly James Mungro.
