  Saints | Jairus Byrd a full go    Wed Aug 20, 08:11 AM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (back) participated in full-contact practice drills for the first time this season Tuesday, Aug. 19. He's expected to play in the third preseason game this weekend.

Footballguys view: The Saints defense was already on the rise with great young defensive ends and Kenny Vaccaro wreaking havoc everywhere. With Byrd covering the deep part of the field, Rob Ryan can take even more chances. New Orleans is a terrific team D/ST to target if you don't want to stream all season.

  Cardinals | Tyrann Mathieu to come off PUP list    Mon Aug 18, 11:28 PM

Arizona Cardinals CB Tyrann Mathieu (knee) will come off the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 19, and there is optimism that he will be ready for the team's season opener.

Footballguys view: This would be a rare piece of good news for the Cardinals defense in 2014. With Darnell Dockett out for the year and both starting ILBs from last year gone, the Cardinals need all hands on deck.

  Buccaneers | Five leave preseason game    Sat Aug 16, 11:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Brandon Magee (ankle), DE William Gholston (shoulder), CB Rashaan Melvin (ankle), RB Mike James (shoulder) and SS Major Wright (back) left the team's preseason game with injuries Saturday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Charles Sims is out for 12-14 weeks, so the Bucs embarrassment of riches at backup running back could turn into embarrassingly little depth in a very short time. Bobby Rainey is becoming a more important player by the day, although this could end up being minor for James when the dust settles.

  Vikings | Jamarca Sanford may not stay atop depth chart    Fri Aug 15, 02:32 AM

Because the Minnesota Vikings have a healthy competition going at strong safety, SS Jamarca Sanford may not stay atop the depth chart. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wants to divvy up the repetitions each player gets during the upcoming exhibition game to see who can handle the job.

Footballguys view: Andrew Sendejo, Chris Crocker, Kurt Coleman, Robert Blanton (who is currently injured) and rookie Antone Exum are causing a massive logjam at the position. The winner could be relevant in IDP leagues, but the quality of the front seven in Minnesota and free safety Harrison Smith could make it a less than desirable spot.

Footballguys view: Mostly this is a matter of resting some guys who are banged up but who they also know the value of already. If it goes beyond this game, then worry. For now, nothing to see here.
