AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans, Titans


  • Andrew Walker of the team website reports Colts 2019 second-round WR Parris Campbell was in a minor car accident Tuesday and is now in the concussion protocol. 
  • Colts WR Daurice Fountain said his rehab this offseason was particularly challenging and he needed three surgeries to make sure his tibia healed properly. (Stephen Holder)


  •’s John Shipley says Jaguars third-round DT DaVon Hamilton will be leaned on more than expected because of injuries and opt-out along Jacksonville’s front. But so far, the rookie has shown himself to potentially be up to the task, dominating one-on-ones in training camp. 
  • Shipley notes QB Gardner Minshew and TE Tyler Eifert have shown strong chemistry so far in camp. 
  • He adds second-round WR Laviska Shenault could be the team’s starting receiver Week 1 especially if WR Dede Westbrook continues to miss time. 


  • Per the Athletic’s Aaron Reiss, Texans second-round DT Ross Blacklock is expected to play quite a bit as a rookie. The former TCU lineman says he’s looking forward to being asked to do different things in Houston’s scheme: “Get off the ball, penetrate and create more havoc than I did in college. I like this system a lot more because it takes more thinking out of it.”
  • While the Texans traded up for OT Charlie Heck in the fourth round, Reiss says he’s shown so far he needs a lot of development and Houston likely will rely on Roderick Johnson as the swing tackle. 
  • Reiss notes fourth-round CB John Reid has impressed the coaching staff with his professionalism and could overtake Vernon Hargreaves as the starting nickel corner at some point this year. 
  • Texans third-round DE Jonathan Greenard and fifth-round WR Isaiah Coulter could both factor into more prominent roles in 2021, per Reiss. 
  • The Texans gave DL Angelo Blackson a $250,000 signing bonus and guaranteed $500,000 of his original $1.85 million base salary as a part of his restructure. (Aaron Wilson)


Titans QB Ryan Tannehill said WR A.J. Brown is playing “really fast” and doing a good job of utilizing his size and strength. 

“He’s playing really fast right now, which you love to see. Big, strong, and fast is a really good combination. He has the ability to make that tight, over-the-shoulder catch in coverage,” said Tannehill, via Michael Giardi

Tannehill mentioned that Derrick Henry is showing improvement as a pass-catcher. 

“He’s catching the ball more confidently,” Tannehill said, via Giardi.
