Houston Texans

Jacoby Jones is a prodigal son of a gun, says Richard Justice. (Great headline, Chronicle editors.)

Dorin Dickerson’s growth was helped by offseason work with Larry Fitzgerald.

Says Dale Robertson: “Maybe everyone having to keep their distance for the last six months will prove to be a positive. You couldn’t ask for a fresher start.”

Michael Lombardi doesn’t like the Texans' toughness, says David Barron.

Stephanie Stradley found Eric Winston’s reaction to the soft accusations.

Indianapolis Colts

Anthony Gonzalez; ‘This may be one of my last opportunities (with the Colts), if not the last opportunity." Mike Chappell’s story.

Tommie Harris isn’t much of a spin move guy, says Chappell.

Training camps are smarter now, says Bob Kravitz.

Tom Moore will be a good resource for the Jets offense, says Peter King. I do not buy the idea I’ve heard that he’ll be a big factor in helping New York deal with Peyton Manning.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jack Del Rio started easing his new guys into the lineup Thursday, says Vito Stellino.

David Garrard should be OK and Aaron Kampman may switch sides, says Tania Ganguli.

Paul Posluszny’s transition bears watching, says Gene Frenette.

Brad Meester and Jaguars PR man Ryan Robinson have helped inspire 6-year-old Luke Akerstrom to walk again. Watch the attached video.

Blaine Gabbert could ultimately be a top five quarterback, says John Oehser.

Tennessee Titans

Matt Hasselbeck put down the sweet tea and got to work, says John Glennon.

Mild-mannered offensive coordinator Chris Palmer has a stern side, writes Jim Wyatt.

Jake Scott says players have issues with the HGH testing company, writes Glennon.

Kenny Britt is disappointed yoga didn’t help him avoid hamstring troubles, says Wyatt.
