RTC: Titans want Jake Locker to be patient

Reading the coverage ...

Houston Texans

The Texans’ tag team attack of Arian Foster and Ben Tate is doubly good, says Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle.

Randy Harvey of the Chronicle says: “I’m going to tell you today that Peyton Manning is not the quarterback we knew all those years in Indianapolis, with the distinct possibility that I will tell you Sunday after he throws for 300-plus yards and four touchdowns in another victory over his favorite foils, the Texans, that he is as good as ever.”

Indianapolis Colts

Through two games, the Colts have shown great gains in run defense with their new scheme, writes Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star.

Maurice Jones-Drew can expect plenty of trash talk from some friends on the Colts, says Mike Chappell of the Star.

The Colts need to sell about 500 tickets by lunch to avoid a blackout, says Chappell.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert (glute) went though a full practice Wednesday and is in line to play Sunday at Indianapolis.

The Jaguars signed tight end Maurice Stovall, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans are urging patience, and want quarterback Jake Locker and the offense to realize every play doesn’t have to be a big play, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch has no hard feelings that the Titans didn’t try to re-sign him after the 2009 season, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Linebacker Colin McCarthy is making progress, but he’s still not practicing because of his ankle injury, says Wyatt.
