In a workout leading into Saturday's preseason game between the Texans and Broncos, Peyton Manning gets results from his unit and No. 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney is a force before leaving with a slight injury.
Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) upped his level of activity during Tuesday's joint practice with the Broncos, seeing some reps with the first-string offense, reports the Houston Chronicle. Coach Bill O'Brien called that "a good sign for our football team."
Ravens defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore suffered a serious Achilles injury Sunday that likely will end his season, coach John Harbaugh told reporters. The 2013 sixth-round pick did not play at all last season while recovering from an ACL injury.
Under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, the Ravens have a different mindset and plan to be a run-first team again, reports ESPN.com. The revamped offensive line has pushed defenders off the line, and running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce "are lighter, and as a result, more explosive," the report said.
