Reading the coverage: Bentley stepping into big role

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

A tour of the division before I head to Chicago for Titans-Bears on Sunday...

As always, I welcome comments, questions, suggestions, complaints, donations of non-perishable food items and restaurant recommendations at the mailbag.

Houston Texans

Kevin Bentley's spent a lot of time as a backup, but he's part of the starting defense now, writes Dale Robertson.

Minnesota's Jared Allen was fined $50,000 for two hits on Matt Schaub, says Robertson.

Amobi Okoye's ankle injury probably means he won't play, according to Robertson.

Indianapolis Colts

Adam Vinatieri is coming off a good game and has done well before in Pittsburgh, writes Phil Richards.

Ben Roethlisberger is back, but the Steelers have other injury issues, says Mike Chappell.

The Colts will have to stop running back Mewelde Moore, who will fill in for the injured Willie Parker, according to Tom James.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Mike Peterson returns and apologizes to his teammates, says Michael C. Wright.

Gene Frenette says upon his return, Peterson did the right thing.

A bad day for John Henderson: He's out with a knee injury and he got two fines from last week that total $15,000, Writes Wright.

Tennessee Titans

The defense in Chicago could be without both Keith Bulluck (chest) and Kyle Vanden Bosch (groin), says Jim Wyatt.

Good work by Dave Ball and Jacob Ford has helped the Titans survive without the injured Vanden Bosch, writes Gary Estwick.
