RTC: Hopkins continues to stand out

Reading the coverage ...

Apologies for going dark for the weekend and this morning. I’ve been sick. Might still be. We’ll see how the day moves along. Please hang with me ...

Houston Texans

DeAndre Hopkins’ daily dose of magical catches is creating believers, says Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle. “When a ball is thrown, put your money on DeAndre,” Texans left tackle Duane Brown says.

Daryl Sharpton was back to practice Sunday; Arian Foster was not says Corey Roepken of the Houston Chronicle.

To which I say: The calf strain Foster scolded the media for making too big a deal of cost him eight days. And now he has a bad back.

J.J. Watt’s elbow brace is back and he says it’s for good, says Robertson.

Indianapolis Colts

As part of getting settled in as the team’s top draft pick, Bjoern Werner did his part to plant the German version of the 1983 Nena hit “99 Red Balloons” in the heads of a lot of people, says Mike Chappell.

Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey sprained his left knee Sunday, says Chappell.

The Colts welcomed a 93-year old assault victim Amelia Rudolf to camp as their guest, says Chappell.

Hall of Fame Baltimore Colt Art Donovan passed away. The Star has the AP obituary.

Jacksonville Jaguars

A look at former Colts tight end Marcus Pollard, in his new role as the Jacksonville Jaguars player development director, from Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Even for the talent-poor Jaguars, the path to a roster spot for some long-shots is a difficult one, says Philip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union.

The Jaguars waived two injured players who haven’t practiced since camp started: receiver Taylor Price and offensive guard Stephane Milhim, says Hays Carlyon of the Times-Union.

Tennessee Titans

Mike Munchak has made a point of emphasizing franchise history to his team, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

The Titans are trimming Akeem Ayers’ responsibilities and expecting more effective pass rushing as a result, says David Climer of The Tennessean.

Observations on Saturday’s scrimmage from Wyatt.

Vince Young is working out for the Packers on Monday, say Wes Hodkiewicz and Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
