AFC Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans



  • Colts HC Frank Reich said QB Philip Rivers had a toe injury and it’s something they will keep an eye on it: “Hopefully, it doesn’t get too sore.” (George Bremer)
  • Rivers said he expects to be alright: “I’ve never had anything with a toe before. It’ll probably be a sore week.” (Joel A. Erickson)


Adam Schefter reports that Texans CEO Cal McNair had dinner this past week with QB Deshaun Watson and discussed the direction of the franchise.

According to Schefter, McNair wanted to hear Watson’s thoughts and opinions on who should be the next head coach.

The Texans have hired the search firm Korn Ferry to aid the GM search.

“I fully realize how important the general manager and head coach hires are for this organization,” McNair said. “My goal is to hire great people who fit the Houston Texans. I want to build something that our fans, players and staff are proud of.

“It’s OK to be under construction right now because every great organization goes through some tough phases, but I still strongly believe the future is very bright for this organization.”

  • Aaron Wilson reports that Texans WR Randall Cobb (toe) is expected to miss Thursday’s game against Detroit Lions. However, WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps injury) hasn’t been ruled out and will undergo an MRI.
  • According to Ian Rapoport, Cobb’s toe injury is “significant” and he will miss some time. 


  • Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio writes that the NFL’s new policy allowing fines for teams that don’t follow the policy of having one controlling owner could impact the Titans. 
  • After former Titans owner Bud Adams passed, he gave the three branches of his family tree equal stake which caused a bit of a dispute with the NFL. Currently, his daughter Amy Adams Strunk is the controlling owner with her nephew Kenneth Adams believed to be next when she steps down. 
  • The new NFL policy allows fines of up to $10 million per year and up to $2 million for individual owners for teams that don’t have one person holding final say in the organization.
