AFC Notes: Dolphins, Jaguars, Texans

Dolphins

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker told reporters on Thursday that he isn’t sure of his status for Week 6.

“I’m not really sure,” Parker said, via the Palm Beach Post. “I’m just going a day at a time and working my way back in there.

One report mentioned earlier in the week that the Dolphins are open to trading Parker, but other reports have downplayed Miami’s interest in moving the former first-round pick.

  • According to Howard Balzer, the Miami Dolphins worked out three receivers on Wednesday including WR Reggie Davis, WR Amba Etta-Tawo, and WR Travis Rudolph.
  • Of this group, the Dolphins signed Rudolph to their practice squad only to be released a day later.

Jaguars

Recently signed Jaguars RB Jamaal Charles said he wants to “give a boost” to the Jacksonville offense and “be a spark” for the offense.

When they see me, I want to give a boost, get them hyped, get them excited that I am here and be a spark to the fire that is going to make a flame,” said Charles, via John Oehser.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles added that Charles still shows “explosiveness” and skillful cuts and vision.

It’s pretty cool. You can still see some of the explosiveness and some of the cuts and the vision and all of that. We’re excited to have him and I’m excited to watch him play,” said Bortles, via Oehser.

Texans

Texans HC Bill O’Brien added that Houston is dealing with a number of injuries at the cornerback position, but have the ability to move certain players around.

Look, I think every team in this league’s dealing with injuries,” O’Brien said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “We’re dealing with it, especially at the corner position, but there’s some guys back there that are versatile that have done a good job for us, whether it’s Kareem, or Shareece Wright or some of the guys that we’ve had to put in there.”

  • Texans CB Shareece Wright said he is playing through his sprained thumb injury despite experiencing pain: “It’s painful. Yeah, I’ll be playing.”
