Houston Texans

  • Chester Pitts is out for the season after knee surgery, says John McClain. Kasey Studdard replaces the longtime left guard.

  • The injury puts Pitts at a career crossroads, says Alan Burge.

  • Brian Cushing is emerging as a solid sidekick to DeMeco Ryans, says Jerome Solomon.

  • Andre Johnson got to 500 catches faster than all but one receiver in history, writes Dale Robertson.

  • Is the win in Tennessee the start of something big or will it preview a letdown? McClain asks.

  • The Jaguars are a good matchup for Houston, says Lance Zierlein.

  • All good things that happened in Tennessee started with Matt Schaub, says Richard Justice.

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Two rookie Jaguars receivers with Texas roots will make their NFL debuts at Reliant Stadium on Sunday, writes Vito Stellino.

  • The Jags officially put Troy Williamson on IR and promoted Tiquan Underwood from the practice squad, says Michael C. Wright.

  • Vic Ketchman: “If it’s gonna take consistent winning to fill this building, then it’s likely not going to work because losing is a fact of life in the NFL.”

  • Some Jags think playing looser will help, says Cole Pepper.

Tennessee Titans

  • Chuck Cecil’s getting his first big dose of criticism and handling it, writes Jim Wyatt.

  • Nick Harper clarifies what he said after the Texans’ loss and says he won’t play the blame game, says Jim Wyatt.

  • Keith Bulluck guarantees the defense will be better, says Terry McCormick.

  • Skeletons depicting Steve McNair and Sahel Kazemi were taken down after creating an uproar, writes Clay Travis.
