Scouting the enemy camps

New, comment

Let's take a look at the rest of the NFL.

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis: Michael Sam sacked Johnny Manziel twice this past Saturday night, flashing the signature money sign on one of them. Sam Bradford left the game with an injury that has now been revealed to be an ACL tear. Shaun Hill has been named the starter. Rodger Saffold also sustained an injury.

Cleveland: Brian Hoyer was unimpressive, to put it kindly, and Johnny Manziel wasn't much better on Saturday night. The Browns did not have Josh Gordon in their starting lineup and now say they expect him to miss part of the season. The Browns trimmed down their roster to 76.

Buffalo: Alan Branch was cut from the Bills after missing the past preseason game for getting a DWI arrest. Sammy Watkins has returned to practice.

Miami: Michael Egnew was cut on Friday afternoon. The tight end was a third round pick in 2012. Knowshon Moreno made his debut last night and he rushed for 64 yards off 10 carries. Dan Marino was hired as a special advisor. Kicker John Potter injured his hip, joining Caleb Sturgis on the injury pile. Kicker Jake Rogers was signed to fill their spot.

New England: The Patriots cut Tommy Kelly, defensive tackle Will Smith, and James Anderson during their cutdowns to get to 75.

New York Jets: Michael Vick called the claims that he is content with being Geno Smiths backup fictitious. The Jets cut Ras-I Dowling, Jacoby Ford and Bruce Campbell as part of their cutdowns to 75. Dimitri Patterson missed Friday's game vs. the Giants. Patterson has been indefinitely suspended due to an unexcused absence.

New York Giants: Giants guard Geoff Schwartz suffered a toe injury vs. the Jets and reportedly will miss a fair amount of time. Corey Washington has shown some encouraging progress, catching four touchdowns in four games. Tom Coughlin is upset with the Giants 39 penalties for 389 yards. The Giants offensive starters will play in their fourth preseason game, but not Odell Beckham Jr.

Indianapolis: Reggie Wayne played in his first game since tearing his ACL in October. The Colts struggled offensively, especially in the run game, and the defense accomplished nothing.

Jacksonville: Despite Blake Bortles' good preseason, the Jaguars have made it clear they plan on starting Chad Henne at quarterback. The Jaguars released 11 players.

Denver: Wes Welker suffered a concussion against the Texans and there is no timetable for his recovery. Peyton Manning showed his anger at that after a touchdown, and got a 15-yard penalty. Kicker Matt Prater will miss the first four games with a suspension due to violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Kansas City: Linebacker Joe Mays will miss some of the season with wrist surgery and right tackle Donald Stephenson will miss four games for a PED violation.

Oakland: The Raiders have begun the cutdown to 75, releasing 10 players. Matt Schaub once again struggled, but still expresses confidence.

San Diego: Kwame Geathers was carted off of the Chargers-49ers game with a leg injury.

Dallas: Geprge Selvie suffered a shoulder injury against the Dolphins. Jerry Jones says that news on Josh Brent will come any day now.

Philadelphia: The Eagles released 14 players to start their cutdown to 75.

Chicago: The Bears released nine players. Jimmy Clausen beat out Jordan Palmer for the job of Jay Cutlers' backup.

Detroit: Rookie receiver T.J. Jones was put on PUP and six others were released.

Green Bay: B.J. Raji will miss the season with a torn bicep, J.C. Tretter will miss multiple weeks with a knee injury and the Packers released seven players.

Minnesota: Matt Cassell has been named the starter.

Atlanta: The Falcons have made their 75 man cutdown already.

Carolina: Cam Newton has a hairline fracture in his rib and won't play on Thursday. The Panthers released 10 players.

New Orleans: Drew Brees had a good night throwing for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns. Kenny Stills aggravated a quad injury.

Tampa Bay: The Buccaneers released 11 players.

San Francisco: The 49ers first-team struggled again as Colin Kaepernick had a hard time due to an offensive line that hasn't seemed to come together yet. Kaepernick will play in the fourth preseason game.

Seattle: The Seahawks offense started dominantly and the defense wasn't too shabby either. They are serious however about letting Earl Thomas return punts. The Seahawks released eight players.

Cincinnati: Vontaze Burfict left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. He also agreed to a four year contract extension.
