Our late morning spin around the division. The mailbag is open.

Houston Texans

Dale Robertson takes a look at recovery for Dunta Robinson, the physical cornerback who hopes to return from his right knee and hamstring injuries for the seventh game.

Indianapolis Colts

Peyton Manning "moved effortlessly and threw with precision" in his first practice back after knee surgery, says Mike Chappell. Tony Dungy said Manning will be on a pitch count in the early days of his return.

More from Chappell: Jeff Saturday is weighing his options with a damaged the medial collateral ligament in his right knee suffered Sunday night. Agent Ralph Cindrich said: "He could have surgery or he could strap it up and play." Surgery would mean he'd miss at least a significant piece of the season.

Jim Sorgi's knee injury has him immobilized, which means Thursday night against Cincinnati we're likely to see Quinn Gray and Jared Lorenzen try to improve on their poor work Sunday night in the loss to Buffalo.

Jacksonville Jaguars

In case you missed it, Derrick Harvey finally signed. I think the Jaguars won this fight.

Vito Stellino looks at the drop-off of left tackle Khalif Barnes.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams returns to Washington Thursday night to work against the team that passed him over as Joe Gibbs' replacement. Also, Jerry Porter did not practice Tuesday and it appears likely he will not play in the season opener at Tennessee on Sept. 7.

For receiver D'Juan Woods, the final preseason contest amounts to the game of his life, writes Vic Ketchman of Jaguars.com.

Tennessee Titans

A cool tour of Keith Bulluck's locker brought us by Jessica Hopp. Look on the right for the video with Bulluck talking us through everything.

Titans notes with a bit on linebacker Colin Allred. I'll write more about him today or tomorrow.

This morning on "The Wake Up Zone" on Nashville's 104.5 FM, a show I am part of three times a week, former Titans offensive coordinator Norm Chow was a guest. UCLA's offensive coordinator had a zinger at the end of the interview when the conversation was about Matt Leinart and Vince Young: "Everyone knew who I wanted and... the minute that they took Vince I told my wife, 'I think my days are numbered here.'"

Clifton Brown of the Sporting News reports on his visit to the Titans' complex.
