Houston (CBS Houston) – Editor’s Note: Each week the Texans’ opponent will hold a conference call with the Houston media. Here are the notes from that call.

This week, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and quarterback Andrew Luck were made available. Here’s what they had to say:

>>>Even though the Texans enter this game losers of five straight, the Colts aren’t taking them lightly.

“They are the reigning champs of our division and we know we are headed into a tough, tough task to travel and play on the road and go down there and get a victory.” Pagano said.

>>>Robert Mathis leads the NFL in sacks after moving from defensive end to outside linebacker.

“The second year in (this defense), he’s much more comfortable. Obviously, it was a huge transition a year ago for him, going from a 4-3 end to a stand up outside linebacker, and those types of things. Second year in, familiarity, comfort level. Again, he takes great care of himself and stays in great shape.”

>>>Andrew Luck is very familiar with playing at Reliant Stadium.

“There always will be (something special), especially because my grandparents can come watch. It’s easy for them and family and friends. I remember going to games at Reliant and sitting down and watching them with my dad. We played a high school playoff game there my junior year. It’ll always be special.” Luck said.

>>>After losing Reggie Wayne for the season with a torn ACL, this will be the first time Luck plays without him in his career.

“It’ll be odd. That’s for sure. He’s been such an instrumental part of my personal growth as a football player. Obviously, his worth to this team, as a leader, as a player, is immeasurable. But we understand it’s next man up.” Luck said.

>>>Andrew Luck and Case Keenum spent some time together when they were on the college football awards circuit.

“I did have a chance to cross paths with Case at various sort of quarterback or college football award, him playing at U of H, a couple of times in different functions or whatever it is. I was always very impressed by him. Classy guy. Really enjoyed talking to him. Glad to see that he’s doing well.”
