AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Steelers

Colts

Colts WR Chester Rogers posted the following Tweet on Sunday, implying that he is traveling to Stanford to work out with QB Andrew Luck and some of the team’s other receivers.

It’s notable given that Luck is still working his way back from a shoulder injury that cost him the entire 2018 season. Luck has been making some progress in terms of throwing a football, but the real test will come in the next few weeks once training camp is underway.

Jaguars

Jaguars second-year RB Leonard Fournette says he’s dropped some weight in the hope of helping him take the next step.

″I feel like I play my best at that weight – 223, 224 – that’s what I played in college,″ Fournette said, via Jacksonville.com. ″Why not? I don’t want to be average. I want to be above average, be the greatest one to play this game. I feel lighter, quicker and I have a lot of my burst. . . .

″At the end of the day, it’s not about me and not about yards per carry. It’s about the wins and losses.

Steelers

Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review writes that Cam Sutton’s versatility makes him a valuable piece of Steelers’ secondary.

Sutton says he’s “open to anything” in regards to his position after seeing some time at safety during offseason workouts.

“It was more for my development,” Sutton said, “showing my versatility that I can play the position. I think they see that because they trusted me to put me back there. I have a great understanding of the defense, and I think it opens up more opportunities for me.”

“I’ve been moving around a little bit, and it’s giving me a lot of opportunity,” Sutton added. “I’m trying to expand and keep building on what I learned last year. The more opportunities and reps I get, I can capitalize on them and make plays on the ball. That’s what it comes down to.”
