  Chiefs | Two likely to compete for one spot    Tue Jul 22, 09:10 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QBs Tyler Bray and Chase Daniel are likely to compete for one roster spot with QB Aaron Murray likely to make the team behind starting QB Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: A very interesting note here. Murray is smart and accurate even though he lacks size and athleticism. The rookie is coming back from the knee injury he suffered last year at Georgia, but reports say that he feels good. Bray has a rocket arm but little accuracy. Daniel has the most experience here, but it sounds like he's fighting for a roster spot. Most thought Daniel was a lock for QB2 in Kansas City with Murray and Bray fighting for the QB3 (developmental) spot.

  Bills | Jerry Hughes shines in camp    Mon Jul 21, 11:46 PM

  Bills | Ron Brooks struggles in camp    Mon Jul 21, 11:32 PM

Buffalo Bills CB Ron Brooks struggled in camp Monday, July 21. He was beaten deep twice in one-on-one drills, and he missed an assignment in team drills. Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 Sports Radio believes Brooks is in danger of not making the roster.

Footballguys view: Brooks has good straight-line speed, but obviously he's struggling to stay with receivers downfield. We'll see if he can turn it around as training camp rolls on.

  Giants | Eli Manning doesn't run at camp    Mon Jul 21, 11:15 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning didn't run with the team at training camp Monday, July 21, and threw on the side with coaches instead. Manning said that not running had nothing to do with his offseason ankle surgery.

Footballguys view: The Giants will be cautious with Manning in camp. Our very own Andrew Garda is credentialed for Giants camp, and he'll be keeping us up to date on what's going on. Manning is looking to bounce back this year after a disappointing 2013 season. Playing under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo will help him do that.

  Jaguars | Aaron Colvin hoping to play in second half of season    Mon Jul 21, 10:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin (knee) will begin training camp and the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list as he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. However, the team believes he could return to play in the second half of the season.

Footballguys view: The PUP list for the regular season means that Colvin will be forced to miss the first six weeks of the year. After that, the Jaguars will have a three-week grace period to decide whether or not to activate Colvin or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Seahawks | Spencer Ware's DUI case dismissed    Mon Jul 21, 10:03 PM

Seattle Seahawks FB Spencer Ware's DUI case was dismissed Monday, July 21, according to the King County prosecutor's office.

Footballguys view: Ware is an interesting talent to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. He's a good runner and receiver out of the backfield who can play fullback or running back.

  Bills | T.J. Graham on the roster bubble    Mon Jul 21, 09:20 PM

Buffalo Bills WR T.J. Graham had a pass fall through his hands after beating his defender on a deep route in camp Monday, July's Mike Rodak believes Graham is in danger of not making the team unless he can show he is a complete receiver and not just a deep threat.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Bills added Sammy Watkins in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, and they traded for veteran Mike Williams earlier this year. Even though they traded away Stevie Johnson (49ers), the depth chart at wide receiver is packed with talent. Graham can get open on a "9" route, but he needs to show that he can run the full route tree and consistently catch passes.

  Bills | Nigel Bradham impressing coaches    Mon Jul 21, 09:08 PM

Buffalo Bills LB Nigel Bradham received first-team reps for the second day in a row Monday, July 21, and received praise from head coach Doug Marrone.

  Bills | Bryce Brown looking good     Mon Jul 21, 08:59 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Bryce Brown has routinely reached the second level when running the ball in camp, according to's Mike Rodak.

Footballguys view: An interesting note for fantasy owners here. Brown is going to play as a reserve runner behind C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson this year. However, Brown may be the lead back for the Bills in 2015. Both Spiller and Jackson are in the final year of their contracts.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins impresses in camp    Mon Jul 21, 08:52 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins made several big plays in practice Monday, July 21, according to's Mike Rodak. Watkins beat CB Leodis McKelvin deep, hauled in a pass over three defenders and caught a pass in traffic on a crossing pattern.

Footballguys view: Watkins was the best receiver in the talent rich draft class of 2014. He can fly down the field, tracking passes over his shoulder with ease. Watkins is also dangerous on short routes where he uses his run-after-the-catch ability to rack up big yards.

Buffalo Bills OT Cordy Glenn (illness) does not have a timetable for his return at this point, according to head coach Doug Marrone. 'I don't know that. It's a medical condition. I'm preparing to go on as if he's not playing, which he's not,' Marrone said. 'I'm just waiting for the doctors, and I can't speak about the condition because it's something that happened outside of football.'

  Redskins | Roy Helu may have advantage over Evan Royster    Mon Jul 21, 06:28 PM

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Helu does have an advantage, especially under new head coach Jay Gruden. He's a fine receiver out of the backfield and has good run-after-the-catch ability.

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was allegedly sucker punched in a Nashville bar this weekend but did not need medical attention. The owner of the bar said Mettenberger did not throw any punches.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger was known as a bit of a rowdy quarterback on the field, so perhaps that translates to his bar attitude as well. He's competing to be the team's third-string quarterback behind Jake Locker and Charlie Whitehurst.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was poked in the eye during practice Monday, July 21. Watkins returned after temporarily leaving the field.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bills here. Watkins is going to be a big part of the offense this year. He'll have fantasy value as a WR3 or WR4 this season. His current ADP is WR33 (7.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus excused, will return    Mon Jul 21, 04:52 PM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus left practice Monday, July 21, for personal reasons, according to head coach Doug Marrone. He is expected back for the evening practice.

Footballguys view: Dareus is under contract for the next two years, but his act has been wearing a bit thin. Arrested twice this offseason, Dareus failed to pass the team's conditioning test at the start of training camp. He's incredibly talented, but Dareus has to stay on track if he's going to play up to his potential in Buffalo.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins fine after practice scare    Mon Jul 21, 04:12 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins returned to practice Monday, July 21, after leaving with an apparent forehead injury.

Footballguys view: The Bills Mafia can exhale here. The team moved up in the first-round to select Watkins this year, and he's going to be a big part of the offense. He's not big like Calvin Johnson (Lions), but Watkins can fly down the field and he's dangerous after the catch.
