AFC South links: 'Building The Monster'

Houston Texans

Arian Foster won't be on the cover of "Madden NFL 13." But that's a good thing, right, Texans fans?

The Texans' home preseason slate includes games against the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers.

Indianapolis Colts

Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star: "Robert Mathis, the Pro Bowl defensive end-turned-outside linebacker, looked around the reconstituted and redecorated Indianapolis Colts practice-facility locker room Wednesday and shook his head. 'I feel like a freshman,' he said with a smile."

There are a lot of new faces as the Colts begin "Building The Monster."

Jacksonville Jaguars

Terrance Knighton is out to prove that his weight won't be an issue this coming season. “It’s not going to change overnight because I came in in good shape today,” Knighton said on Wednesday. “I want to prove to them this year that I won’t be a problem and go above and beyond their expectations and show that I’m committed to it and it’s an area where I’ve matured and changed.”

The Jaguars will host the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants to launch their preseason schedule.

Tennessee Titans

Recently signed Leger Douzable says he likes the Titans' history of developing defensive ends.

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will face his former team when the Titans open their preseason schedule at Seattle.
