RTC: Allen should be good for opener

Reading the coverage…

Houston Texans

For the time being, Shiloh Keo is the Texans' starting free safety, says Dale Roberson of the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans traded receiver Jeff Maehl to the Eagles for offensive lineman Nate Menkin, says John McClain of the Chronicle.

Brian Cushing plans on returning to game action Saturday night against Miami, says McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts expect to have tight end Dwayne Allen (foot) back for the season opener, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

A sore knee kept first round pick Bjoern Werner out of the Colts’ preseason opener, says Marcus Dugan of Colts Authority.

Jim Irsay’s tweet calling out his coaching staff was “unfair, unwise and uncalled for,” says Josh Wilson of Stampede Blue. I agree.

Jacksonville Jaguars

According to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, the Jaguars have run 2,100 plays since the start of OTAs, says Ryan O’Halloran in this practice report from the Florida Times-Union.

No one is pulling away in the quarterback competition, says O’Halloran. And Luke Joeckel is dealing with a hip flexor.

How are the Jaguars using technology and analytics? Taylor Bloom of Sports Techie considers.

Tennessee Titans

Adjusting to a new job description and playing too many snaps made last season tough for Kamerion Wimbley. Now the Titans feel sure they know how to use the defensive end better, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Jake Locker rebounded from a bad practice Sunday for an efficient session Monday, says Wyatt.

Ropati Pitoitua is with the Titans because he can defend the run, but he recently made a big play against a fake run as well, says Craig Peters of the team’s website.
