  Broncos | Danny Trevathan expected to play    Thu Aug 27, 08:14 PM

Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) is expected to play around 20 snaps in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: This could be the one of the best defenses in the NFL this season, so naturally it tracks that they are one of the better defenses in fantasy as well.

  Jets | Calvin Pace injury not serious?    Thu Aug 27, 04:16 PM

New York Jets LB Calvin Pace (groin) doesn't believe his groin injury is a long-term issue. He's unsure if he'll play Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: As we said earlier, they may just rest him but they need him come Week 1. This is a top ten fantasy defense, but it's not incredibly deep and too many injuries to their thin pass rush is bad.

  Jets | Calvin Pace idle Thursday    Thu Aug 27, 02:06 PM

New York Jets LB Calvin Pace (groin) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: The Jets can ill-afford losing a pass rusher, even one who isn't all that special like Pace. The Jets remain a very good team defense, and should be a solid starter for you most of the season.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney won't play in preseason game    Wed Aug 26, 01:52 PM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will not play in the team's third preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Aug. 30, as the team continues to follow a medical plan for their linebacker. Houston is likely to ease Clowney in the rotation with LBs Whitney Mercilus and John Simon. 'I'm rusty,' Clowney said. 'I'm just trying to get as many reps as I can. Tell coach to put me in as much as possible. They're not trying to rush me back. Working me in slowly. I'll still be trying to get as many reps as I can so I can get ready for the game.'

Footballguys view: Clowney may never be the same again after this injury. The Texans are going to be incredibly cautious with him as they ease Clowney back into action.

  Colts | Robert Mathis ready for Week 1?    Tue Aug 25, 07:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts DE Robert Mathis (Achilles') believes he'll be ready for the regular season opener Sunday, Sept. 13, against the Buffalo Bills. Mathis returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: We were all a little taken aback when he was removed from the PUP list, but this might be a bridge too far. Expect him back in the early season, yes, but we don't foresee him back in time for Week 1.

Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (Achilles') was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 25. He was placed on the PUP list at the start of training camp as he continued his rehab from a torn Achilles' he suffered in September of last year.

Footballguys view: It's unknown if Mathis will be able to play in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, and owner Jim Irsay said it could be late September or early October before Mathis plays.

  Eagles | Kiko Alonso expected to go    Tue Aug 25, 11:38 AM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (concussion) is expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Alonso has plenty of talent, but injuries have slowed him down as a pro. He's out of the concussion protocol, and we should see him in the all-important Week 3 preseason game.

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (knee) briefly left the second preseason game because of a knee injury but was able to return. Ray said he should be fine moving forward.

  Giants | Jon Beason injures knee    Sat Aug 22, 09:29 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (knee) left a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 22, with a sprained left knee and will not return.

Footballguys view: Just what the Giants need - another injury. It's looking grim for Big Blue with all these injuries and the team had issues last season when Beason was out early in the season. For as much money as they pay him, you'd think he might supplement his workout with some bionic limbs. This defense is in serious trouble.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney improving    Thu Aug 20, 07:27 PM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) continues to increase his activities in training camp practices after being activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list, although his mobility isn't the same as it was before his injury. Clowney was able to plant his feet and change directions Thursday, Aug. 20, and he's looking more confident in his return. He's made significant progress from his rehab from knee problems that limited him in his rookie season.

Footballguys view: The Texans need Clowney for this defense to repeat last season's success. Last season was all J.J. Watt--and an unreal season. Clowney needs to live up to that first-overall pick the Texans spent on him in the 2014 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: A lot of these players are veterans getting a break. Don't be worried until they miss Week 3 when the starters get the most time.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney activated    Thu Aug 20, 04:10 PM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list. Clowney has increased his activity since he began practicing again earlier this week.

Footballguys view: With the quarterback situation still about as unsettled as ever, the Texans are looking for something more from the guy they took instead of Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel. Clowney played in just four games last season and never got into a rhythm. The defense will always go through JJ Watt, but the Texans feel the way to upend the Colts in the division is to beat Andrew Luck and they need Clowney to make that a reality. If he can step up and stay healthy, this defense could be one of the best in the NFL and in fantasy.
