  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney on the market?    Tue Aug 13, 05:26 PM

Houston Texans DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney has yet to report to camp as of Tuesday, Aug. 13. Longtime beat writer John McClain stated on social media he would be surprised if Clowney isn't traded.

Footballguys view: If McClain thinks that Clowney will be dealt, then look out for a trade to happen. The word was that Clowney would report to the team after the third preseason game. The Texans franchise-tagged player was not able to strike a new long-term deal, so Clowney is set to play on a one-year nearly $16 million contract. Stay tuned.

  Packers | Oren Burks likely suffered torn pec    Sat Aug 10, 05:11 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers LB Oren Burks (pectoral) is believed to have suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the team's preseason opener against the Houston Texans, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Burks was penciled in as a starter, so this is a hole for this defense. He has plus pass coverage skills, so this is an upgrade for Trey Burton's Week 1 matchup and could be a weakness that teams attack if the Packers can't find a suitable replacement.

  Seahawks | Bobby Wagner expected for opener    Tue Aug 6, 02:30 AM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (leg) had a platelet-rich plasma therapy in his leg, and a league source confirmed Monday, Aug. 5. The procedure was considered minor and head coach Pete Carroll expects the linebacker to be ready for the regular-season opener on Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: Wagner has had this procedure before so it probably won't endanger his Week 1, but if it does, Joe Mixon's matchup is looking a lot tastier. Ezekiel Ansah is also a big part of the Seattle defense on the Week 1 availability watch list.

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David has surgery    Mon Aug 5, 11:37 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (knee) had surgery to address a torn meniscus in his left knee Monday, Aug. 5, but he's not in danger of missing the regular season opener.

Footballguys view: This wasn't just irritation from playing on turf. David could be less than 100% for an opener against the 49ers and then the Bucs play on a Thursday against the Panthers, so David's ability to be ready for two games in quick succession will be tested. The Bucs defense can't afford to lose anyone else.
