Houston Texans

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • The final preseason game produced the first win and answered a lot of questions for the Jaguars, says Michael C. Wright

  • Maurice Jones-Drew should be OK but Jack Del Rio couldn’t say for sure that the running back will practice Wednesday, says Vito Stellino.

  • Assume nothing about Jones-Drew’s status, advises Gene Frenette.

  • Mike Sims-Walker grabbed a touchdown in his return, says Stellino.

  • Tony Pashos was at right guard as the Jaguars pushed forward, says Garry Smits.

  • Fans should be able to understand that rebuilding is part of the cyclical life of the NFL, says Vic Ketchman of jaguars.com.

  • Jordan Black got an extension. What does that mean for the team’s other tackles who qualify as backups?

  • The blackout didn’t drive fans to the stadium, says Frenette.

Tennessee Titans

  • The Titans pounded the Packers in their fifth and final preseason game, says Jim Wyatt.

  • GM Mike Reinfeldt says nothing is imminent with veteran receivers the team tried out, writes Jim Wyatt. I heard Samie Parker was impressive and Jerry Porter was, to put it lightly, not. Mark Jones heads the list if the Titans go to it.

  • Mark Jones may have done enough to secure the job as returner, says Gary Estwick.

  • Starters didn’t play much, says Wyatt.

  • Vince Young and Dominique Edison were the stars, says Terry McCormick.

  • Roger Goodell has broadened the league investigation into tampering possibilities with Albert Haynesworth, blogs Wyatt.
