NFL News and Notes - Aug 13
Josh Rosen will start the Arizona Cardinals pre-season game on Friday. Sam Bradford will play, but not start
Saquon Barkley suffered a hamstring strain in practice, which Giants Coach Pat Shurmur called "mild." He should be fine for Week 1, but may have reduced practice and pre-season reps.
LeSean McCoy has not had any charges filed against him as of yet.
Alfred Morris has signed with the San Francisco 49ers. He is expected to compete for a roster spot.
Tarik Cohen is getting a lot of reps at WR in camp, not just RB, which could lead to an even further expanded role in the Chicago Bears offense.
Alshon Jeffery could begin on the PUP list following post-season shoulder surgery. This would cost him the first six weeks of the season and significantly drop him down fantasy draft boards. Stay tuned.
Peyton Barber has been named the starting running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by head coach Dirk Koetter. Keep an eye on the battle between him and rookie Ronald Jones.
The Cleveland Browns are still expected to start Tyrod Taylor at QB in Week 1, despite the good first game from Baker Mayfield. Not surprising.
Rex Burkhead has not practiced since last Wednesday for the New England Patriots. It is not expected to be serious. Jeremy Hill is practicing ahead of Mike Gillislee in practice, while Burkhead remains out.
