AFC Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans, Malik Willis


  • Colts HC Frank Reich on the team still considering signing a veteran quarterback when asked about QB Nick Foles: “We’re always looking at who makes this team better at every position. Who are the available veterans? Who can we still sign?” (Stephen Holder)


  • Texans rookie WR John Metchie predicted that he would be full-go by July and is already running without a knee brace. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Texans HC Lovie Smith on Metchie’s progress following his knee injury: “We’re in process of seeing exactly when he’ll be ready to go. He will be ready to go. He’s not 100 percent yet. He is going to play this year.” (Wilson)
  • Smith also commented on rookie LB Christian Harris: “To have an opportunity to get him where we did, it’s exciting. We like this draft class.” (Wilson)


Titans rookie QB Malik Willis attempted to dispel rumors surrounding the relationship between himself and veteran starter QB Ryan Tannehill. Also chiming in on the situation was HC Mike Vrabel.

“It was never anything negative,” Willis said, via Turron Davenport of ESPN. “Ryan’s a good dude. Everything is cool. He had us over [to] the house the other day and gave us a little bit of game regarding what comes with this process.”

“He was genuine, he was authentic,” Vrabel said. “Everybody here knows he’s a great teammate. That (mentoring) is not his job. His job is to prepare to help us win a bunch of games and be a great teammate and help out. That was not any sort of an issue for me.”
