Reading the coverage: Brackett, Dawson to miss time

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
Good morning from Houston, where I have sifted through the headlines to give you an easy click-and-read opportunity to see what's been written.

The AFC South blog will soon be on the way back to Nashville and I'll bring you more from the division when I get back.

We've had a two-week hiatus on the chat, so put Thursday's in your date book: 3:00 p.m. right here.

Houston Texans

  • The Texans dominated the first "Monday Night Football" game in Houston since 1994, writes John McClain.

  • Richard Justice says the Texans did well to make a good first impression on "Monday Night Football."

  • Mario Williams tormented David Garrard and got three sacks and a forced fumble, says Dale Robertson.

  • Steve Slaton is closing in on 1,000 yards, writes Megan Manfull.

  • All of a sudden, the Texans are forcing turnovers, says Manfull.

Indianapolis Colts

  • Injuries continue to pile up for the Colts. Linebacker Gary Brackett looks to be out at least a week and defensive tackle Keyunta Dawson will be gone longer than that, writes Phil Richards.

  • Just a couple of plays have made a huge difference for the Colts this season. Mike Chappell breaks them down.
