RTC: Expecting rest for Jake Locker

Reading the coverage ...

Houston Texans

Gary Kubiak is concerned about the Texans' run game and run defense, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

To which I say: He’s got to be concerned about something. But this team is good enough that bad days in those departments can be offset by a lot of other stuff. They didn’t run great and allowed Chris Johnson to get on track and they still blew out the Titans.

An injury update on Antoine Caldwell and Quintin Demps, and Kubiak’s thinking on Connor Barwin’s play, from McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

Writes Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star: "The statistics are on Chuck Pagano’s side, with a 90 percent chance of complete remission and cure. And if you know anything about Pagano, you know he will beat this thing into submission."

Shocked and saddened, Colts players are offering their full support, says Phil Richards of the Star.

Their world rocked, the Colts have to get back to business, says Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Mike Mularkey is staying positive but he’s willing to make some changes, too, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.

To which I say: There is only so much change that can happen, because there is no influx of talent coming.

Breaking down all six of the sacks the Jaguars absorbed against Cincinnati with Ryan O’Halloran of the T-U.

Tennessee Titans

A Nashville doctor who’s an authority on shoulder injuries but isn’t involved in Jake Locker’s case forecasts a few weeks of rest, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Mike Munchak claims Leroy Harris did well against J.J. Watt outside of the two sacks he allowed, writes John Glennon of The Tennessean.

To which I say: The Titans are fueling Harris’ silly thinking and playing us for fools. Watt was all over the place and won plenty of plays against Harris. An offensive lineman doesn’t win the snap if he simply doesn’t allow a sack.
