Andrew Luck Officially on Colts' Radar

Bill Polian of the Colts was on hand to watch Andrew Luck play over the weekend.

The Colts say vice chairman Bill Polian spent Saturday watching quarterback Andrew Luck lead Stanford to a win at Duke.

His presence led to speculation that the Colts are already looking at next year's NFL draft after losing Peyton Manning, who is out while he recovers from neck surgery. Indianapolis opened the season with veteran Kerry Collins and was blown out by Houston, 34-7.

Meanwhile Luck led the Cardinals to a 44-14 against Duke. Luck completed 20 of 28 passes for 290 yards and four touchdowns.

There may have been other reasons Polian was on the road Saturday. His son, Brian, is Stanford's assistant special teams coordinator and the family's home is in Charlotte, N.C.

The Colts have scouted top college quarterbacks before. They brought in Andrew Dalton and Colin Kaepernick for workouts this spring. Both were taken in the second round of the draft, before Manning had neck surgery in May.

Bill Polian isn't making the Colts' day-to-day personnel decisions. Chris Polian, the Colts' general manager, took over those duties during the offseason.
