Ian Rapoport @RapSheet

The #Chargers suffered a tough loss yesterday in practice. Sources say star safety Derwin James will be out a significant amount of time, but how much is still undetermined, as of now. He injured his foot yesterday and was spotted in a boot today.

Alex Marvez @alexmarvez

Surgery to insert a screw likely ahead for @Chargers @DerwinJames for a foot stress fracture per @ProFootballDoc on @SiriusXMNFL

Minimum time out -- Doc estimates -- is six weeks. More likely: IR with designation to return. Must be cautious in recovery to avoid re-injury

For what’s it worth, I had two Bucs defenders ask me after practice today who No. 27 was. It’s Kalen Ballage. They said he gave them fits all week. The speed and acceleration surprised them.

#Jets starting ILB Avery Williamson suffered a torn ACL, source said. He had his MRI today and is out for the season. Terrible preseason injury.

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter

With Arizona already without CB Patrick Peterson for the first six games due to a suspension, it now has lost CB Robert Alford for about two months with a leg injury. Cards shorthanded at CB to open season.

Pete Carroll said Ziggy Ansah suffered a minor groin pull a few days ago. Doesn't think it'll impact his availability for Week 1, but still no word on if his shoulder will be ready.

Hate to hear that about Derwin James. So fun to watch and hurts that whole defense, which is crazy talented

Harry, who isn't practicing, has multiple injuries and wasn't running with the first-team before going down can't logically be considered a projected starter as of today

John Daigle‏ @notJDaigle

#Jets beats have been adamant about Ty Montgomery’s involvement in camp, and it showed sans Le’Veon Bell as the former played 16-of-16 first team snaps vs #Falcons, including lining up out wide in 10 personnel. Fantasy’s RB77 remains a late-round steal.

Context Matters‏ @dwainmcfarland

Not sure how bad #Jaguars Alfred Blue's ankle issue is. Foot was trapped under a lot of pressure. Blue was holding off Ryquell Armstead to this point for #2 behind Leonard Fournette. Armstead was held out tonight w/ a concussion.

Call Baltimore, they have too many RBs.

Getting a clearer picture of who the #2 RB is going to be in Jacksonville seems big. I'm not convinced they are on the roster yet.

Big news for the Patriots, with No. 10 still available.

NFL is reinstating Patriots’ WR Josh Gordon, league source tells ESPN.

So Bucs defenders can't read jerseys and bypass their coaches to ask beat reporters for opponent's info?

Context Matters @dwainmcfarland

DeVante Adams played first series.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling played all snaps with Adams.

Allison saw the field on 11 personnel looks.

Kumerow appears to be the four.

Jimmy Graham played in 11 and 12 looks out for 21 for Marcedes Lewis. Lewis also played in 12 looks.

I am willing to bet it does impact his availability for week 1

Another key for the Pack: They must get more from their young WRs than they did in ‘18. Marquez Valdes-Scantling brings the speed they’re looking for in an outside WR, while Jake Kumerow has opened eyes with his consistency. Allen Lazard's energy and effort has also stood out.

Some observations of the Tennessee #Titans for those that are here for that. That's a talented roster but they had issues on both sides of the ball during joint practices versus the #Patriots. (thread)

 

Quote

It starts with the QB. Marcus Mariota is 5 years in. I suspect we know what he is now. Mobile. Smart. Safe. And it's the last part that would worry me some in Tenn. He didn't take many risks in practice. With that receiving group, he should.

 

Quote

I don't think Ryan Tannehill would be an upgrade at the position but one thing you know about the former Dolphins QB is that he will take a risk or 3. This offense might need a kick start at some point. I could see Tannehill giving them that. The problem is it doesn't last.

 

Quote

I like the receiving group. Corey Davis needs to be more consistent but there's no reason why he can't be a top-10 receiver in this league. He has every tool. Taywan Taylor actually was the Titans best WR during these joint practices. Quicks and an ability to get over the top

 

Quote

We didn't see much from Adam Humphries but I thought he was the best target for the Pats to chase in the offseason and they agreed only to come up 2nd to Tennessee. Vrabel said he "felt him" during their first preseason game. If he's healthy, he'll be a great bail out option.

 

Quote

Love the Titans secondary. Kevin Byard is one of the best safeties in all of football and when he took part in 1-on-1's with receivers (and not tight ends) he won. Butler had a very good 2nd half of the year, Logan Ryan is sound as a pound and Adoree' Jackson is uber-talented...

 

Quote

I just wonder how well they'll be able to marry rush with coverage. Harold Landry was quiet these two days but showed flash as a rookie. If Jurrell Casey returns to full form maybe it's a moot point. He demands two bodies. They'll need something week to week from Cameron Wake.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said Dare Ogunbowale is making a "really strong" case to be the No. 3 running back.

This isn't the first time Arians has singled out Ogunbowale. The Bucs have one of the weakest backfields in the league, so Ogunbowale has some handcuff value behind Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones if he wins the job. Ogunbowale has the pass protection skills to push for a role on third downs.

SEA - WR D.K. Metcalf Needs Knee Surgery         Source: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero

Tom Pelissero writes: "D.K. Metcalf needs knee surgery, per Pete Carroll. Don't think he'll be out long."

"Metcalf's injury happened a few days ago. Carroll said doctors have a clear look on the MRI. Think it'll be a really quick recovery. No details on type of surgery. I asked if Metcalf has shot for Week 1 -- Carroll just repeated they're very optimistic."

Per Brian Flores, no decision has been made RE: Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Flores said that ideally, there's one quarterback for the entire season.

To me, that means that Josh Rosen would have the edge if all things are equal, or at least close.
