  Raiders | Khalil Mack to miss another game    Thu Aug 16, 07:41 PM

Oakland Raiders DE Khalil Mack will not report to the team before their second preseason game, which means he will be fined an additional $814,000, according to a source. It does not appear that the two sides are close to any resolution.

Footballguys view: This is baffling. As bad as that defense was in 2017, how much worse will it be minus Mack? Either trade him or get this deal done! When he's back, no matter what team, he's a great IDP asset to any team.

  Patriots | Several Pats likely to sit    Thu Aug 16, 10:33 AM

New England Patriots WR Kenny Britt (hamstring), RB Rex Burkhead (undisclosed), RB Sony Michel (knee), WR Matthew Slater (undisclosed), OT Marcus Cannon (undisclosed), CB Duke Dawson (undisclosed), DE Trey Flowers (undisclosed) and CB Ryan Lewis (undisclosed) are likely to sit out of the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are not ones to risk injury to guys just to see them go. Sony Michel would be one guy we'd like to see but with the knee injury and a small procedure ending his preseason, we'll have to draft on blind faith. Which is to say, probably not at his current ADP of 25th back taken.

  Seahawks | Frank Clark back in full    Tue Aug 14, 01:09 AM

Seattle Seahawks DE Frank Clark (wrist) was able to practice in full for a second straight day Monday, Aug. 13. These have been his first two full practice days since wrist surgery in June.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks defense needs Clark to be a dominant pass rusher with late 2017 breakout candidate Dion Jordan's status up in the air for the beginning of the season and a lot of inexperience on the edge. His IDP value has a large range of outcomes.
