AFC Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans

  • Wentz says he doesn’t think his ankle is broken but said he felt instant pain underneath the pile as it got twisted. He also added that he will be undergoing an MRI for the injury.


  • Texans’ rookie QB Davis Mills after seeing his first NFL action: “I thought the whole team rallied. They acknowledged they had a lot of confidence in me.” (Aaron Wilson)
  • Mills on how his first game felt and his evaluation of his performance: “At any moment you got to mentally prepare yourself to go in the next play. I feel like I did a good job. Can improve on some stuff. A lot to learn from. Overall, I didn’t think I was too rattled or wasn’t ready for the moment.” (Mark Berman)
