The Tennessean has an update on the improvements to LP Field, which were approved by the Metro City Council earlier this week. All of the major improvements (most notably the huge jumbotron, elevators and sound system) are expected to be complete before

If it's a Wednesday in the fall, The Tennessean has 5 hot topics for ya.
David Climer looks at the rejuvenated Chris Johnson, who is all the sudden back on track to cross 1,100. Even crazier: if CJ keeps up his pace of the past few weeks he could top 1,500. I don't see that happening (Jacksonville and Houston can actually play defense), but if he even gets back to 1,300 again it'll be a remarkable feat considering almost all of us didn't think he'd top 700 yards on the season just a month ago.

The Houston Texans have signed Jeff Garcia, but T.J. Yates is expected to start until the Texans lose and their fanbase panics at the thought of yet another Texans collapse.

Jason McCourty looks like a go for Sunday, but it's still something to keep an eye on.
Brett Kern and the special teams coverage units were great last weekend in Buffalo, and here's the proof (correction below made by AW):
Buffalo had 11 possessions. All but two started
outsideinside the Buffalo 20-yard line.
