A Look Around The AFC South: 7.20.17

Intro:’s Andrew Walker offers a comprehensive look at the latest offseason action around the AFC South Division.


INDIANAPOLIS – We're into single digits.

The Indianapolis Colts veterans report for training camp at the team's West 56th Street facility in just nine days, meaning football season is officially just around the corner.

For most of the Colts players, this break time between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp certainly allows them to get some much-deserved rest and relaxation, but it also provides a window of opportunity to continue getting their bodies ready for the rigors of the upcoming season on their own time.

So as we await the arrival of those Colts players to the facility on July 29, let's take a look at the latest action around the AFC South Division:

Houston Texans
Houston Texans rookie running back D'Onta Foreman has been arrested on drug and weapons charges.

A statement from the University of Texas Police Department in Austin said officers answered a report of the smell of marijuana outside a campus dormitory about 12:30 a.m. Sunday. They found three occupied vehicles with marijuana in each and a firearm in one of them. Foreman was among those in the vehicles and was identified by police as the owner of the firearm.

Foreman was arrested on charges of unlawful carrying of a weapon and marijuana possession, both misdemeanors, and released on bond.

Foreman had 2,028 yards rushing with 15 touchdowns as a junior for the Texas Longhorns last season to win the Doak Walker Award given to the nation's best collegiate running back. He was selected by the Texans in the third round of the NFL draft.

The Texans issued a statement that said the organization is aware of the situation and is gathering additional information.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler has been arrested in Florida on simple battery and criminal mischief charges.

St. Petersburg police said in a news release that Fowler was arrested Tuesday after getting into a confrontation with a man who made a comment about his driving.

An arrest report says Fowler exchanged words with the man before hitting him. The man's glasses were knocked off and Fowler stepped on them before taking a grocery bag, which included liquor, from the man and tossing it in a lake.

Police say the man wasn't injured.

Tennessee Titans
Former Tennessee Titans running back Antonio Andrews received six months of supervised probation after making a conditional plea on a misdemeanor assault charge.

Under terms of the deal reached Thursday, the misdemeanor charge against Andrews can be dropped if he avoids trouble for the next six months. Andrews had been facing a felony charge of aggravated assault before reaching this agreement.

The 24-year-old Andrews also must pay $10,574 in restitution.

Police had said Andrews heard a man make a racial slur at a Nashville pizza restaurant and then punched him twice.

Andrews played for the Titans from 2014-16. The former Western Kentucky player had only two carries last season after making 10 starts and rushing for a team-high 520 yards along with three touchdowns in 2015.
