  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.

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.

Footballguys view: Ray could get about seven sacks this year as a part-time pass-rusher behind DeMarcus Ware. He was a little banged up against the Texans, but reports indicate that he'll be fine.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith (hamstring) was carted off during practice Thursday, Aug. 20, after suffering a hamstring injury.

  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.

Tennessee Titans LB Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) sustained a torn hamstring Friday, Aug. 15, per sources. It is uncertain if the injury is season ending.

  Falcons | Not interested in Aldon Smith    Mon Aug 10, 03:07 PM

Free-agent LB Aldon Smith (49ers) is not an option for the Atlanta Falcons at this point even though he is a talented player, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (knee) has been cleared to practice Monday, Aug. 10. 'Clay Matthews is on a trial-and-error, trial return,' head coach Mike McCarthy said before Monday's practice. 'We'll see how his workout goes today.' Matthews all along said his knee was 'nothing to worry about,' but was perhaps being more cautious because it's his first training camp as both an outside and inside linebacker. He missed four practices last week and the team's practice Saturday, Aug. 8.
