INDIANAPOLIS—For all the hoopla surrounding his signing, his wife, and his reality show, Hank Baskett's debut for the Colts was pretty tame.
A few special teams plays is all that the receiver got in the team's 27-23 win over the Dolphins on Monday night. The real work has actually been coming off the field.
Its a different experience for the wide receiver, who is with only the second team of his four year career.
"It was the same thing when I went to Philly, it was tough to pick up that offense, but I had a whole off season to do that," said Baskett. "Here they're like, come in here and get started."

Since hitting the practice field for the first time last Thursday, though, Baskett has gotten some help from his fellow receivers and quarterback Peyton Manning.
"He'll tell you what you need," said Baskett of his new signal caller. "I know if I run too many wrong routes he'll get after me, but right now he's easing me into it."
Stars were easy to spot during the Dolphins "Orange Carpet" ceremony Monday night, but one was even easier to spot near the Colts bench.
Sporting a blue shirt and standing withing reach of the team though most of the game, Tiger Woods became the most famous Colts' fan of the night.
"He called me and said that he wanted to come to the game, but that he wanted to sit on our sidelines," said Manning, who said he got the passed from owner Jim Irsay. "It was cool and I know a lot of the players thought it was cool that he was on the sidelines."

While Manning said that he didn't pay too much attention to Woods during the game, he did here from teammates that the golfer was watching intently from start to finish. Though, according to Manning, Woods has always been just a fan of the sport, without many aspirations to play.
"He said he wouldn't have much interest in playing football," said Manning of Woods and football. "He kinda likes what he's doing."
Another Venue Hits The Bucket-
Most likely Woods won't be following Manning to his next venue, which is the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ.
Going to the Phoenix area marks another venue off the NFL bucket list for the quarterback, who'll make his first trip to play the Cardinals in his career. For the Colts, in fact, it marks their first visit to Phoenix since the 1990 regular season. Manning did watch Super Bowl XLII in the venue, when his brother Eli's Giants upset New England 17-14 in 2008.
