  Dolphins | Jelani Jenkins to miss several weeks    Sat Aug 27, 02:26 PM

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins CB Jelani Jenkins' (knee, ankle) knee scope is considered minor in nature and he will likely require two to three weeks to fully recover, batting any setbacks. The club is hopeful he will be able to play in the regular-season opener versus the Seattle Seahawks Sept. 11.

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (groin) suffered a groin injury during the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26, and will not return.

Footballguys view: Kerrigan is a key edge rusher for a team that already lost Junior Galette for the season. Second year force player Preston Smith is on the spot for the defense that added Josh Norman this offseason.

  Dolphins | Jelani Jenkins had surgery    Fri Aug 26, 06:46 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Jelani Jenkins (knee, ankle) recently underwent surgery to clean up his knee, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jenkins is Miami's best linebacker and they will miss him for however long he is out. The defense looks good up front, but there are weak spots at linebacker and corner that can be exploited.

  Bills | Buffalo resting several defensive players    Fri Aug 26, 06:29 PM

Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams, LB Preston Brown, LB Jerry Hughes, CB Stephon Gilmore and CB Ronald Darby will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Don't read too much into Washington's easy time moving the ball against Buffalo tonight. They are being very cautious with their starters after losing Reggie Ragland and IK Enemkpali this summer.

  Patriots | New England adds Barkevious Mingo    Thu Aug 25, 02:07 PM

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo was acquired by the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 25, according to a source. It is not known what the Browns will receive in return.

Footballguys view: Mingo, a former first-round pick, has never played up to his potential in the pros. He may not have made the Browns 53-man roster, but he could have based on his special teams ability. The Patriots have had bad luck up front on defense, so Mingo is going to get a chance to turn things around. Let's just say we're not counting on it.

  Jaguars | Myles Jack to run with starters    Thu Aug 25, 10:23 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars LB Myles Jack will play with the first-team defense Sunday, Aug. 28, in the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: A great sign for the future of the Jaguars defense. If Jack can stay healthy, the Jaguars got an absolute steal in the second round, as he is a top five talent.

  Chiefs | Tamba Hali to be limited participant    Tue Aug 23, 12:44 AM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (knee) is expected to practice on a limited basis now that he has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Hali will work back slowly as he prepares for the start of the regular season. With fellow pass-rusher Justin Houston out for the foreseeable future, the Chiefs could use Hali in a big way. He's not the same player he used to be, but Hali could snare around six sacks this while playing well as a run defender.

  Giants | Jasper Brinkley on track to start    Mon Aug 22, 07:23 PM

New York Giants LB Jasper Brinkley appears to be the leading candidate to start at middle linebacker this season because of his ability to stop the run.

Footballguys view: Brinkley is your traditional two-down thumper. He does a good job of finding the ball-carrier and Brinkley arrives at the play with natural violence.

  Bears | Leonard Floyd sat out Sunday    Mon Aug 22, 06:15 PM

  Falcons | Vic Beasley should play Thursday    Mon Aug 22, 05:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Vic Beasley (shoulder) is not expected to be limited during the preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Beasley's pressures can be turned into sacks this year. As a rookie in 2015, Beasley had 33 QB hurries, five QB hits but only four sacks. The team wants to see more from him during his sophomore season.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware off NFI list    Mon Aug 22, 03:28 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware (back) has been activated from the Non-Football Illness list Monday, Aug. 22, and will practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Ware isn't quite the same player he used to be, and the veteran will play a part-time role for the Broncos this year. We should see second-year pro Shane Ray start opposite of Von Miller in 2016. Ware will come on the field in obvious passing situations and could still snare five sacks or so.

  Chiefs | Tamba Hali off the PUP list    Mon Aug 22, 02:56 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (knee) was taken off the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22. He will practice Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: The veteran pass-rusher had his knee scoped back in February, but he's on track to play in Week 1. The Chiefs have wisely been cautious with Hali, and we think that continues with Hali playing no (or very limited) snaps in the preseason.

  Ravens | Elvis Dumervil returns    Mon Aug 22, 09:38 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22, and returned to practice.

Footballguys view: Foot surgery from earlier this offseason has kept Dumervil from practicing to this point. We don't think the Ravens need to rush the veteran pass-rusher out there at any time during the rest of the preseason. However, we should see Dumervil ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Broncos | Zaire Anderson pushing for time    Sun Aug 21, 11:40 PM

Denver Broncos LB Todd Davis is the favorite to replace LB Danny Trevathan as the other starter at inside linebacker next to LB Brandon M. Marshall, but LB Zaire Anderson is making a case for playing time with a strong preseason.

Footballguys view: Davis is a fine player, but he's a two-down player and will come off the field in nickel situations. The Broncos used their nickel defense last year around 65 percent of the time. Anderson is a violent player with an attitude. He spent last year on the team's practice squad, but it's looking more and more like he's going to make the 53-man roster this year.
