AFC South Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans


Colts QB Andrew Luck recently suffered a bit of a setback in regards to the calf injury he’s been dealing with. 

However, the good news is that Luck has been able to participate in walkthroughs with the first-team offense and get some throwing work in with quarterback guru Tom House.

“He’s getting some good work,” Reich said, via the Indianapolis Star. “First of all, some good rehab, and then he’s inside throwing with Tom House, that’s been really good. He’s put some of that on tape, so we have a chance to look at that, and that’s been really positive.

Luck explained that his shoulder injury turned out to be “blessing in disguise” because it forced him to reevaluate the other aspects of his life.

“I’d put way too much of my self-worth directly into how I was performing on the football field,” Luck said, via “And then I wasn’t on the football field and I felt quite empty. It was very unhealthy, first for me, second for the relationship with my now-wife, and my other relationships. The result has been the best thing that ever could’ve happened. It forced me to look in the mirror and do a character assessment, and address the things I didn’t like and then the things I did like, and then get on the same page with the people I love and respect.”


  • Albert Breer mentions that the big question for the Texans is still their offensive line. Houston is “really happy” with what they’ve gotten from LT Matt Kalil thus far, according to Breer, but health is still a question.
  • Kalil holding down the left tackle job should allow the Texans to keep rookies Tytus Howard and Max Sharping working at guard.
  • Breer adds that the other trouble spot for the Texans is at cornerback. Breer’s sense is the Texans wouldn’t mind making a move there, but the problem is that there are more teams out there that need corners than there are teams willing to consider trading away good ones.


Titans owner Amy Adams Stunk said during an interview with The Midday 180 that she isn’t looking to build a new stadium and is instead focused on the prospect of continuing to develop their current stadium. 

“I like our stadium, I don’t want a new stadium,” Adams Strunk said. “I do like Hard Rock in Miami. It’s an interesting model and need to look further into. I’m all about making the best stadium for our fans without being ridiculous. Stadium doesn’t win football games at the end of the day.”
