RTC: Colts' Hilton working on drops

Reading the coverage…

Houston Texans

The Texans are finding ways to challenge their new punter, Shane Lechler, even as he enters his 14th season, says Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle.

Finding touchdowns in the red zone is an offseason point of emphasis for the Titans, says Ganguli.

Ed Reed didn’t close the door on the possibility he could miss games as a result of his hip rehabilitation, says Ganguli.

The Texans donated $25,000 to a firefighter survivor fund, says Ganguli.

Indianapolis Colts

The receivers are expecting to show improvement this season, including T.Y. Hilton working on his drops, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

The Colts are in harmony with new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, says Tom James of the Tribune-Star.

Coby Fleener is showing signs of progress, says George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The investigation into Maurice Jones-Drew’s suspected role in a restaurant altercation is expected to wrap-up soon, says Larry Hannan of the Florida Times-Union.

Jaguars coaches like to target players in practice to see how they react, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

J.T. Townsend, who had become virtually a member of the team’s family since being paralyzed in 2004, passed away, reported Vito Stellino of the Times-Union.

Tennessee Titans

Right tackle David Stewart didn't play the whole season, but had penalty problems for the Titans last season, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

“This is a make-or-break year -- not only for (Jake) Locker's status as a potential franchise quarterback, but also for the Nashville futures of (Kenny) Britt and running back Chris Johnson,” writes Chris Wesseling of NFL.com.
