- HC Mike Pettine called out Pro Bowl CB Joe Haden on Monday.
“He’s played well at times, but as you can see, at some inopportune times he’s not played well,” Pettine said, via The Chronicle-Telegram. “I think he’ll admit that, as well. That’s what we talk about. The great ones are going to make big plays when it’s needed, and I think that’s one area where Joe will look to improve.”

- WR Eric Decker (hamstring) said he took himself out of Monday night’s game because of a “tight feeling that wouldn’t loosen up.“
“In Green Bay it was a different feeling than it is now,” Decker said, via The New York Post. “[Monday] it was just a tight feeling that wouldn’t loosen up, and if I pushed through it, it could create something worse. Understanding my body, I knew that was the best thing to allow myself to be more productive throughout the year instead of do something stupid and be out a month.’’

- RB Arian Foster couldn’t say for certain that he’ll play in Week 4 against the Bills as he’s dealing with a hamstring injury.
“As soon as I feel 100 percent, I’ll be out there,” said Foster, via the Houston Chronicle. “It’s my hamstring’s call.”
