With Chris Johnson’s holdout, Javon Ringer is the top running back, says Wyatt.

Ryan Mouton suffered an Achilles injury and is likely out for the season, says Wyatt.

A padded practice made for some short fuses, says John Glennon.

Will lower rookie salaries invite a competing league? An interesting angle I had not considered from Scott Bolander.

Houston Texans

Wade Phillips looks to build on his track record for quick turnarounds, says Craig Malveaux.

Brad Maynard is the new punter, Ty Warren is getting a look, Lawrence Vickers is in play and Brian Cushing is almost back from January knee surgery, says John McClain.

It’s odd seeing so many quality players on the sideline for practice at this point, says McClain.

Given DeMeco Ryans' situation, Stephanie Stradley considers how guys come back from Achilles injuries.

Andre Johnson put the sell on Johnathan Joseph at Fred Bennett’s wedding.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts' offensive line is something to worry about, says Bob Kravitz.

Houston Texans

Johnathan Joseph and Danieal Manning are ready to fill holes in the Texans' porous defense, says Jeffrey Martin.

Rick Smith’s done good work so far. Now Jerome Solomon wonders if Ty Warren could be the next addition.

Baltimore and Denver are interested in Vonta Leach, who wants to be the league’s highest-paid fullback, says John McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are losing in free agency, like they always do. And they’ll win when the games count, like they always do. Hard to argue with Bob Kravitz here.

The Colts have a healthy roster heading into camp, says Mike Chappell.

Late on this: "If I could have one quarterback in history to get me through a contemporary season or series of seasons, I would select Peyton Manning," says Mike Tanier.

Expensive good players don’t kill teams. Expensive bad ones do, says Nate Dunlevy.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have made instant improvements on defense with their four free-agent additions, writes Tania Ganguli.

The front office is being aggressive, says Gene Frenette.

It's fitting for the Jaguars to have a heartfelt goodbye to Vince Manuwai, and more like good riddance to Derrick Harvey, says Frenette.

Punter Matt Turk got one year for nearly $2 million, with $600,000 guaranteed, says Ganguli. Note the “observation deck” on the left side of this page.

Tennessee Titans

Chris Johnson needs to show up in order to get contract talks started, writes Jim Wyatt.

Matt Hasselbeck expects to win with the Titans, says Wyatt. Don’t miss the story in here about his airport code name.

Kenny Britt is off the hook for team discipline unless he has a misstep going forward, says John Glennon.

Vince Young is paying tribute to Steve McNair in Philadelphia, says Wyatt. A nice gesture.
