  • Shaun Cody is showing off his versatility, says Jordan Godwin.

  • Kevin Walter is a quiet complement to Andre Johnson, writes John McClain.

  • Dominique Barber is getting some reps ahead of strong safety Nick Ferguson, says McClain.

  • Kris Brown missed three field goals in a row, one because of a bad snap.

  • Curtis Painter is ready for some action, writes Mike Chappell.

  • Irsay wants another Super Bowl ring, says Chappell.

  • John Oehser's Tuesday practice report.

  • The defenses' added fronts, coverages and changing looks are helping Peyton Manning and the offense, says Oehser.

  • Demond Sanders says Charlie Johnson as the starting left tackle is a ploy.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Tennessee Titans

  • Vince Young ran some option plays in practice, says The Tennessean.

  • Michael Lombardi considers Vince Young.
