AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans



  • Per the Herald Bulletin’s George Bremer, Colts S Khari Willis and second-round WR Michael Pittman are in the concussion protocol. 
  • The Colts announced assistant OL coach Klayton Adams missed Sunday’s game against the Steelers because he was in the COVID-19 protocols. (Mike Wells)


  • ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that the Jaguars ending up with the No. 1 overall pick and the rights to Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence makes their general manager and head coaching vacancy as attractive as any in the league to prospective candidates. 
  • The Jaguars would add Lawrence to a stockpile of draft picks and over $100 million in cap space — plenty of resources for a new GM to remake the team. 
  • Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said he thought about benching Mike Glennon for Gardner Minshew during Sunday’s blowout loss to the Bears: “Was there a point where I’m like, ‘Hey, should I put Gardner in there?’ I was thinking about it, but there weren’t enough possessions [remaining].’ I didn’t want to put him in there in that type of situation…” (John Oehser)


  • According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Texans LT Laremy Tunsil is believed to have suffered a high ankle sprain that will keep him out of Week 17. 
  • Texans interim HC Romeo Crennel said Tunsil will undergo further diagnosis: “They’ll look at it, they’ll scope it and whatever they do and see if there’s a major injury or not.” (Aaron Wilson)
  • Texans QB Deshaun Watson appeared to suffer an elbow injury in Sunday’s loss to the Bengals, but Crennel said he’ll play in Week 17 against the Titans if he’s cleared by the medical staff: “If you held out all good players, you wouldn’t have good football.” (Aaron Reiss)
