DeMeco Ryans feels it's his job to get things corrected, writes Dale Robertson. Five things to know about the Texans, from Pete Prisco. Steve Slaton's progress makes the Texans a contender, says Prisco. Updates on injured Texans Antwaun Molden, Chester Pitts, Chris Myers and Brian Cushing, from John McClain and AP. McClain warns about fan overreaction. Glenn Martinez could challenge for Jacoby Jones' roster spot, says Alan Burge. Battleredblog.com is worried about the run defense. Indianapolis Colts Reggie Wayne's expecting to line up all over the place, says Mike Chappell. Defensive coordinator Larry Coyer says communication is the key, writes John Oehser. Oehser takes a question about the potential for Joseph Addai and Donald Brown to line up in the same backfield. Phillip B. Wilson looks at the Colts' preseason numbers. Deshawn Zombie says people shouldn't forget just how good a coach Tony Dungy was. One big difference with Coyer so far is movement on defense, says Stampedeblue.com.
