AFC Notes: Jaguars, Ravens, Texans


Jaguars’ HC Urban Meyer addressed the media about the reports that there have been issues among his staff members in Jacksonville.

“There’s a report, you said,” Meyer asked, via “No, the only report, all due respect, is the report from me? We’re a very transparent staff, and I’m very transparent and have always been. I have high expectations. When someone’s not performing well, yeah, we have hard conversations, but that’s the game of football. So that report is incorrect. Do I have high expectations for position groups? Absolutely. Very high expectations. If it’s not fulfilled, then we have to have a conversation about it.”


Ravens’ TE Nick Boyle gave a detailed account of the injury that derailed his 2020 season, adding that his hamstring was torn off the bone.

“I had a hamstring, meniscus, PCL, MCL, a little fracture, and then I had a clean-up late,” Boyle said, via “Yes, the inside part of the hamstring was off the bone. Usually, people have them on the outside, but it was different. It was on the inside, because the way it got hit, it kind of came through, and my whole inside of the knee blew out. I had two [surgeries]. I had the initial one, and then I had one late summer. But those were both necessary for me to get back out there. And just like I said, it’s a lot. Even when I first had surgery, that was the worst surgery of my life. That week after was miserable – staying there in Texas – but luckily, I had my family come with me and everything. And just my whole support system, and even with the Ravens, they’ve been really good to me and allowed me to take the time to come back, which is a blessing.”


Texans OC Tim Kelly mentioned that he expects veteran WR Brandin Cooks to be more involved in their offense moving forward. 

“I think there was a lot of things, weather being probably a big factor in that,” Kelly said, via Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790. “The way the game was going in terms of us wanting to make sure we were controlling the ball and not exposing the football. So, I think there was a number of different factors, nothing anybody was doing to take him away, or nothing that he’s doing. He was open on a couple opportunities, and for whatever reason weren’t able to get the ball to him.
