Reading the coverage...
According to Gary Kubiak, Ed Reed will be with the team for minicamp in mid-June, says Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle.
To which I say: He won’t be the only veteran watching if history holds. The Texans traditionally don’t practice the bulk of their key veterans in minicamp.
T.J. Yates and Case Keenum ran practice for the Texans while Matt Schaub had a day off, says Robertson.
Kubiak intends to pace things with nine-year veteran fullback Greg Jones once camp starts and people are in pads, says Robertson.
Arian Foster’s calf strain means he won’t work for the remainder of OTAs and minicamp, writes John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
With a closer view, Matt Hasselbeck is even more impressed with Andrew Luck, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
With all the new guys, Phillip B. Wilson of the Star refers to his roster a lot while watching the Colts practice.

Ninety percent of the Jaguars' offense has been installed, says John Oehser of Jaguars.com. Here’s Oehser’s Q&A with offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. One interesting point about increased quarterback freedom to change plays: “I want them to go from being a (resident) to being a full-time surgeon.”
Oehser thinks a healthy Cecil Shorts could gain 1,200 yards in 2013.
Defensive tackle Antonio Johnson brings the Titans additional size on the interior, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
The Titans struck deals with four of their draft picks, says Wyatt.
New special teams coach Nate Kaczor is looking to put a stamp on the unit, says Wyatt.
Cornerback Jason McCourty and receiver Nate Washington said the first day of OTAs ranked as intense, per this video from Amie Wells of the team’s website.
