A quick look around the AFC South Sunday evening…

The Colts released eight players. Gone are guard Josh Beekman, tackle Casey Bender, receiver Joe Horn (no, not the old one), running back Devin Moore, defensive back Chip Vaughn and quarterback Mike Hartline. Linebacker Cody Glenn and defensive back Mike Newton were waived injured. If they are unclaimed, their rights revert back to Indianapolis.

The Jaguars got a pep talk from Maurice Jones-Drew, who didn’t play, after they fell behind 17-0 in Buffalo Saturday night. "I thought we were pressing a little bit too much,” he told Tania Ganguli. “There were certain things I was seeing that were very uncharacteristic of our offense. I kind of pointed those things out and said we don't practice like this, we don't work like this so why play like it? The guys, they settled down, they played well. Sometimes you just gotta point out certain things and guys understand it.”

The Texans seem optimistic about Arian Foster and his left hamstring. “Everything was positive today,” Gary Kubiak said. “It looks like we’re dealing kind of with the same thing we were dealing with at the start of camp. Hopefully get him back on the rehab train and get him ready for opening day. He’ll be day-to-day. I’ll keep you guys up to date, but we feel like we’re fortunate.”

The Titans plan to get Kenny Britt working with the first team Monday in practice. “The only reason he hasn’t been at times is just because when we got into getting ready for the game mode or the carded-periods, there was no reason for him to take away reps from someone who was actually going to play in the game,” Mike Munchak said. “I think it will be a little bit different the next couple of days where he will get a chance to run with the first group and get some reps and continue that on hopefully for the rest of the season.”
