Reading the coverage: Walker vs. Marshall is battle of close friends


Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

Friday at last. Always a good day to hit the mailbag.

Houston Texans

Indianapolis Colts

  • Kelvin Hayden is considering surgery on his right knee. The Colts offered no timetable beyond him missing this week. He hurt the knee when he stepped on a seam at Reliant Stadium and Marlin Jackson complained about the field.

  • Peyton Manning would have liked to have been a part of a Colts-Giants game at Yankee Stadium this year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of "The Greatest Game Ever Played," writes Phil Richards. I don't see how the NFL could have forced it considering they aren't on each other's scedule this year.

  • Dwight Freeney usually talks on Thursdays. Injured Colts usually don't talk. Freeney (hamstring) didn't talk yesterday. Phillip B. Wilson wonders what it means for the Ravens game.

  • Jim Sorgi was a multisport athlete as a kid, says Chappell.

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Best friends from their time together at Central Florida, Jaguars receiver Mike Walker and Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall play against each other Sunday, writes Michael C. Wright.

  • Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams "scoffed at the perception that his blitzing style of defense doesn't fit the Jaguars' personnel or even that they're doing a lot more blitzing than in the past," according to Vito Stellino.

  • Gene Frenette breaks down Williams' press conference.

  • Matt Jones still has some maturing to do, says Cole Pepper.

Tennessee Titans

  • Rookie receiver Lavelle Hawkins is making too many mistakes to get into the mix, according to Jim Wyatt.

  • Trouble for Adam "Pacman" Jones in Dallas could impact the Titans draft picks.
