  Dolphins | Rey Maualuga to miss preseason game    Mon Aug 21, 08:53 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Rey Maualuga did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 21, and will not play in the third preseason game because he is still working his way back into game shape.

Footballguys view: It's the dress rehearsal for the regular season, but Maualuga is not ready. They'll work him back into shape so that he can begin the regular season as a two-down run-stuffer for the defense.

  Steelers | James Harrison likely to sit out    Sat Aug 19, 03:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison likely will not play in the second preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Aug. 20, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Harrison has participated in only one of the 16 practices during training camp.

Footballguys view: Harrison is a seasoned pro and doesn't need every preseason rep. At 39 years old, Harrison has found the fountain of youth over the last three years with the Steelers. If healthy, gathering in around 5.0 sacks this year would be a sound projection for the veteran.

  Broncos | Von Miller not expected to play    Sat Aug 19, 02:50 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller is not expected to play in the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We shouldn't see Miller much at all in the preseason. Denver's defense is already banged up enough, and losing Miller to an injury would be a crushing blow.

  Dolphins | Rey Maualuga likely will be MLB    Sat Aug 19, 02:49 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Rey Maualuga is expected to be the starting middle linebacker this season and be used primarily on running downs.

Footballguys view: Maualuga is not the same player he used to be, but the Dolphins needed help inside. He likely will come off the field when the team lines up in their nickel formation.

  Bills | Reggie Ragland could be moved    Sat Aug 19, 02:25 PM

  Dolphins | Miami hosting Rey Maualuga    Tue Aug 15, 05:09 PM

Free-agent LB Rey Maualuga (Bengals) is working out for the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins need help at the position after losing second-round pick Raekwon McMillan to a torn ACL. Maualuga is not the player he used to be, but if added by the Dolphins he'd likely start inside as a run-stuffing linebacker.

  Panthers | Thomas Davis signs extension    Tue Aug 15, 04:34 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis signed a one-year, $6.75 million contract extension Tuesday, Aug. 15, according to a source. The deal includes $2 million guaranteed in 2017.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick out of Georgia in 2005, this deal likely insures that Davis will retire as a Panther. Many have speculated that former GM Dave Gettleman was fired due to his hesitancy to sign Davis to a new deal. Having played over 1,000 snaps each of the last two years, we could see Davis do that again in 2017.

  Chargers | Denzel Perryman out several weeks    Tue Aug 15, 02:15 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) underwent surgery Tuesday, Aug. 15, to repair a torn ligament in his ankle, according to sources. He will miss eight to ten weeks.

Footballguys view: It's a blow for the Chargers run defense. Perryman is assignment sound and does a good job of cleaning up against the run. The recovery time from this surgery likely puts Perryman on the PUP list to start the regular season.

  Chargers | Denzel Perryman may need surgery    Mon Aug 14, 07:19 PM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) may need surgery on his injured ankle and will miss at least the first four games of the regular season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Wow. This injury was originally thought to be a high ankle sprain. This sounds much worse. If he's set to miss the first month of the regular season, then the PUP list is a possibility for the young linebacker. When healthy, Perryman is one of their best run defenders. Remember this when considering RBs going up against the Chargers, like Broncos RB C.J. Anderson in Week 1.

  Chargers | Denzel Perryman likely out 4-6 weeks    Mon Aug 14, 08:20 AM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) is likely to miss four to six weeks with an ankle injury, but he'll have an MRI Monday, Aug. 14, to confirm.

Footballguys view: The ankle injury is likely a high sprain. This puts Perryman's availability in question for the regular season opener on Monday Night Football against the Broncos. He's one of the team's top run-stuffers when healthy.
