RTC: Colts' special teams as an asset

By Paul Kuharsky

Reading the coverage ...

Houston Texans

Defensive tackle is thin, thin, thin after a season-ending injury to Sunny Harris, says Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle. Defensive ends Jared Crick and Tim Jamison will likely see action inside this week.

The Texans are being patient with DeVier Posey who came into the league with different circumstances than most players, says Ganguli.

Andre Johnson is being sued for child support, says Dale Robertson and John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Ex-Oiler Curley Culp is a senior nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, says McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

Through two preseason games, special teams have been an asset, not a liability, and that’s highly unusual for the Colts, says Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star.

At No. 1 in the waiver order, the Colts will have first dibs on over 1,000 players who are about to come free, says Mike Chappell.

The preseason Andrew Luck vs. Robert Griffin III T-shirt is selling, says Phillip B. Wilson. (Sadly, this is happening despite my plea for people to not buy it.)

The hype is inevitable but it’s not going to distract Luck or RG3, says Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Who’s winning the PR battle in the fight between Shad Khan and Maurice Jones-Drew?

Gene Frenette of the T-U wonders which side will extend the olive branch. I firmly believe it's not going to come from the team.

Khan continues to enhance the player experience for the Jaguars, says Vito Stellino.

The Jaguars will look to score on their opening drive for the third time in three games tonight in Baltimore, says Stellino.

Three plays illustrate why Blaine Gabbert has gotten better, says Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans hope that winning the starting quarterback job helps Jake Locker settle down, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Previewing the Titans versus the Cardinals with John Glennon of The Tennessean.

The Titans released defensive tackle Shaun Smith, says Wyatt.

Taylor Thompson is learning contact is a two-way street, says Glennon.
