NFL Notes: Colts, Cowboys, Dolphins, Falcons, & Jaguars


  • Ed Werder reports that the Colts still expect QB Andrew Luck to start Thursday’s game against the Texans.
  • Werder adds that the decision to re-sign Josh Johnson is due to backup Matt Hasselbeck being sick in recent days.
  • In fact, Werder mentions that the Colts were challenged to practice on Tuesday because both Luck and Hasselbeck were both dealing with issues.


  • When asked if the Cowboys were interested in playing in Mexico, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said: “Yes we are.
  • Ian Rapoport adds that the Cowboys are still reluctant to give up a home game to do so.


Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill claims there was nothing said about a “paycheck” in the practice scuffle last week, per Jeff Darlington.

I hold myself to a higher standard than to say something like that,” Tannehill said, per Darlington. “Yeah, I’m upset. It’s slanderous to report things I didn’t say, to degrade my reputation, it’s sickening to me.


  • Falcons HC Dan Quinn says he’s yet to speak to WR Roddy White about the receiver wanting more touches, but plans to once White returns from his excused absence. (Vaughn McClure)


  • Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has been cleared to start catching passes in individual drills and will wear something on his fractured hand for protection, but no cast. (Mike DiRocco)
