Reading the coverage: Stories of the day

Insider file: K.C. Joyner picks the guy on each team who’s got a Michael Vick factor to him in that he’s difficult to plan for. His AFC South choices: Jacob Tamme, Mario Williams, Chris Johnson and Brad Meester.

Houston Texans

The preseason finale is a numbers game for Gary Kubiak, says John McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

Kerry Collins is ready for extensive playing time tonight, says Mike Chappell.

Atlanta signed cornerback Kelvin Hayden.

Rivers McCown thinks the Colts run may be over. It’s an insider file, so I will share an important piece of it: "It goes beyond the preseason: Their core is aging. (Peyton) Manning's injury is only the first symptom, and unless Indianapolis' last two drafts blossom fast, this could be a team without a direction in a few years. Can they hold off Father Time for one more year? That remains to be seen. But we're not betting on it."

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars rookies are ready for their final auditions, says Tania Ganguli.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans and Chris Johnson are making progress, say Jim Wyatt and John Glennon.

It’s the last chance for some guys to secure a spot for dome Titans, says Glennon.
