RTC: On Manning, we just don't know

Reading the coverage…

Blue chips and red chips from Michael Lombardi on offense, on defense and in coaching.

Houston Texans

On a dominant night, the Texans lost Arian Foster to a hamstring injury, says John McClain.

Foster called it a re-aggravation of what he already had, says Jeffrey Martin.

The offense simply rolled the 49ers, writes McClain.

An active pass rush produced three sacks, says Martin.

Troy Nolan had two interceptions, writes Martin.

Missed this: Pete Prisco on Andre Johnson statistically.

Indianapolis Colts

Required reading from Bob Kravitz on what he, and we, don’t know about Peyton Manning.

Details of Kerry Collins’ two-year contract from Mike Chappell. The important part: $2.5 million to sign and a $1.5 million base this year. The second year is meaningless.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars lost the first preseason overtime game in the NFL since 2008 says Tania Ganguli.

The pass rush and pass defense are big questions heading into the preseason finale, says Vito Stellino.

The Jaguars lost ground on many fronts, says Gene Frenette. He categorizes the first-team offense’s early efforts as “abysmal.”

Paul Posluszny’s homecoming had mixed results, says Stellino.

David Garrard left the door open, but Blaine Gabbert failed to walk through it, says Alfie Crow.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans got a reality check as the starters were outplayed by the Bears, says Jim Wyatt.

It’s time for a compromise between Chris Johnson and the Titans, says David Climer.

Kenny Britt avoided a suspension, says John Glennon.

Tommie Campbell’s big play ensured a win, says Wyatt.
