AFC Notes: A.J. McCarron, Chargers, Jaguars

A.J. McCarron

  • Mike Klis of 9News denies a rumor that has been circulating Wednesday morning that the Broncos are trying to acquire Bengals backup QB A.J. McCarron.
  • A source tells Nicki Jhabvala of the report: “It’s 150% false.


Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said that first-round WR Mike Williams (back) was back at practice on Monday and running.

“He’s back on the grass,” Lynn said, via Eric D. Williams of ESPN. “He’s running. He’s doing well.”

“We just want him to keep progressing and not have any setbacks,” Lynn added. “And we’ll see what happens.

Williams is still expected to continue the plan put in place by specialist, Dr. Robert Watkins, and remains on the team’s active/physically unable to perform list for now.


Jaguars QB Blake Bortles says he’s the progress made by the team’s offense during training camp.

“It was about what we can do, how we react in the situation and how can we continue to get better,” Bortles said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. “Up front, [the Patriots] single everybody up and that made everything one-on-one as far as the blocking schemes and then they do a lot of different things in coverage with their safeties, whether they’re sprinting their guys down or staying high and doing different stuff. . . .

“There is no doubt there has been some bad stuff that’s happened that we have to fix and continue to work on, but I think if you watched 7-on-7s [Tuesday] or 1-on-1s, there weren’t a whole lot of times we got stopped. We just have to find a way to carry that over into the 11-on-11.
