AFC Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans



Colts HC Frank Reich said it is “too early to tell” if WR Parris Campbell (knee) will be able to return from injured reserve this season. 

“At this point, I think it’s too early to tell that. I know he’s working really hard, so if there is a chance, I know that Parris is the kind of guy that will give himself that kind of chance,” said Reich, via Andrew Walker


New Texans QB Josh McCown said he plans on helping Deshaun Watson in any way possible. 

Anyway I can serve and help a young quarterback like Deshaun to continue what he’s doing, that’s the icing on the cake. Watching Deshaun work and lead his team is fun,” said McCown, via Aaron Wilson.

McCown said he’s publically expressed his desire to coach in the NFL after his career is over but will “cross that bridge” when the time comes. 

“I think I’ve made that public something I want to do when I’m done. That’s the extent of it. We’ll cross that bridge whenever that time comes. Family decision. Definitely interested in that,” said McCown, via Wilson.

  • OUT for Week 10: RB David Johnson (concussion), G Senio Kelemete (concussion)
  • QUESTIONABLE for Week 10: LB Dylan Cole (back), DE Charles Omenihu (hamstring)



When asked if he’s “concerned” about Titans K Stephen Gostkowski‘s consistency issues, HC Mike Vrabel said they must “evaluate everything we do” and make improvements. 

“We have to evaluate everything we do. … We all have jobs to do, and we have to do them better,” said Vrabel, via Jim Wyatt.

Vrabel said the Titans elected to start recently promoted P Trevor Daniel based on how he’s done in practice. 

“We made the decision based on what we saw in practices, and we felt it was the best decision for team,” said Vrabel, via Wyatt.

Regarding the Titans’ special teams’ struggles in Thursday night’s game, HC Mike Vrabel said Daniel’s shanked punt “spoke for itself.” 

“It pretty much spoke for itself, them getting the ball where they did. They got inside the 30-yard line one time and they got it in the end zone the other,” Vrabel said, via Turron Davenport. 

Vrabel reiterated that they must “evaluate everything” with their special teams but has confidence in STs coordinator Craig Aukerman and STs assistant Ryan Crowe. 

“I think we’re going to have to evaluate everything that we do. We have to be better in all areas,” Vrabel said. “I have confidence in Craig [special-teams coach Craig Aukerman] and Ryan [special-teams assistant Ryan Crowe] and what they do. We’ll continue to hold people accountable and continue to improve. I thought that those guys, I’m very confident they know what they’re doing. I know what they coach, I’m in those meetings and there at practice. We will just keep working and making sure that we start playing better in that area and performing better.”
