Houston Texans: Quarterback Deshaun Watson (chest) is recovering from the beating he took during last Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys but he was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Watson clearly doesn't see any way he won't be ready to play in this Sunday's contest against the Buffalo Bills. "I've been sore plenty of times," Watson said.
"It's part of the game, able to take some shots and just regroup and keep moving forward." Houston coach Bill O'Brien said Watson needs to do a better job at staying out of harm's way.
"As he goes through his career, there will be times when he needs to make the decision to slide or get out of bounds," O'Brien said, "but there were some plays (during the Dallas game) where he's trying to score touchdowns."
Indianapolis Colts: The club ranks 29th in rushing at 74.4 yards per game and its lone run of 20-plus yards this season is a 33-yard scramble by quarterback Andrew Luck.
That evidence shows the team badly misses projected No. 1 back Marlon Mack, who has played in just one game this season. Mack injured a hamstring in the preseason opener and returned in Week 2 but departed after 11 touches due to foot and hamstring injuries.
Mack is making progress and hopes to return soon as it frustrates him to watch games. "It's hard. You want to go out there, but I don't want to go out there and hurt myself again and then I'm out longer," Mack said.
"It's hard to stay patient because you want to go out there and help the young guys and help the team pretty much and get a win. It's hard, but you just have to stay patient as much as I can."
Charles impressed the Jaguars during Tuesday's workout and the club could use his experience with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys and third-stringer Corey Grant (foot) done for the season.
"He has a track record, but you want to make sure there's production," Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said of Charles. "He looked the part the other day when we worked him out, so we'll see how he does." Charles was a four-time Pro Bowl selection when he was a star with the Kansas City Chiefs. He topped 1,000 yards five times in a six-season span earlier in his career.
Correa, a second-round selection in the 2016 draft, was traded to Tennessee in late August with Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome telling him the team wanted to move in a "different direction." Correa termed the Ravens as "a great organization" and insists there are no hard feelings.
"There's not extra motivation; I am going to be ready every single Sunday," Correa told reporters. "I respected (what he said). It's business, so I just went about my business and I came here and I couldn't be happier." Correa has 2.0 sacks this season after failing to record one in 25 games with the Ravens.
