The Texans should lean heavily on the run to get on track in Indianapolis, says John McClain of the Chronicle.

Andre Johnson is out for Thursday night’s game in Indianapolis and Owen Daniels might be too, says McClain.

Indianapolis Colts

Bill Polian says Peyton Manning will fail his physical after the season and then be in line to continue his rehabilitation with the team, writes Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

Things are a lot different since the Colts played Houston on opening day, say Phil Richards and Chappell.

Football Outsiders says the Colts have an 89.8 percent chance of drafting first overall.

One-time Colts tight end Ben Utecht is experiencing memory loss, says Erik Brady of USA Today.

Gene Frenette of the T-U offers a review of Shahid Khan’s podcast with Peter King of Sports Illustrated.

The Jaguars put another defensive back on injured reserve, says Tania Ganguli of the T-U. Does safety Darcel McBath qualify as part of the injury trend when he didn't have a real role and just joined the team last week?
