Jaguars Defenders Already Impressed With Andrew Luck

The Jacksonville Jaguars will get their first of what is sure to be many looks at new Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck when the teams meet Sunday.

From what Jaguars players and coaches have seen from the rookie No. 1 overall pick, it appears the Colts have replaced one franchise passer with another, according to The Florida Times-Union.

Jacksonville's new head coach is especially impressed with Luck's mobility:

"You've got to contain him, and you've got to cover your guys long," Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said. "You can't have a breakdown on that because he's very mobile."

The Jaguars were 5-14 against previous Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. They look to get off to a better start against the new face of the Colts on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Indianapolis. The game will be televised by CBS.
