AFC South Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans

     

Colts

Colts GM Chris Ballard says CB Quincy Wilson‘s versatility will help him in a suddenly crowded cornerback room in Indianapolis.

“The thing that is so strong about Quincy and I didn’t even understand this coming out, he’s really football smart,” Ballard said via 1070 The Fan’s Kevin Bowen. “Right now, he’s playing 5 different spots back there. He will go corner, dime, nickel, little bit of safety. He can play a lot of roles for us. He’s going to compete to play corner, but on game day, he becomes very valuable, because he can play man-to-man on tight ends. That’s why having all these longer corners help you from a matchup standpoint.”

  • Colts QB Chad Kelly said he’s grateful for the opportunity with the Colts and wants to prove he can be trustworthy and a leader. (Brenner)
  • Kelly said he’d been living in his parents’ basement in Buffalo since his arrest in October. He added the Colts have an infrastructure in place to help him be a better person: “I truly see it’s a genuine thing and I appreciate everything Mr. Ballard has done for giving me this chance and has talked me throughout this process.” (Bowen)
  • Colts S Clayton Geathers has missed OTA’s so far due to a procedure done to clean up his knee. (Joel Erickson)

Jaguars

New Jaguars WR Chris Conley is looking to prove he’s a capable player in his own right after leaving the shadow of Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins in Kansas City.

“It’s a new situation,” Conley said via John Oehser of the team’s website. “I’ve got a new coach, new guys I’m in the huddle with, new/old quarterback, new environment, heat — all of that. I’m really just trying to adjust, find my place and make my mark.” 

Texans

  • Texans RB D’Onta Foreman told reporters on Wednesday that he feels as good as any season since high school as an Achilles injury has limited him the past two years: “(I’m) starting all over with a chip on my shoulder. Coming with something to prove to everybody.” (Aaron Wilson)
