Panthers S Trenton Robinson suffered a torn pectoral in the second preseason game and is expected to miss the entire season.

Aug 24 - 10:45 AM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Pete Dougherty reports Packers fifth-round WR Trevor Davis had an "uneventful" training camp.

Once the pads came on, Davis' play slipped. He has blazing speed (4.42 forty) at 6'1/188, but Davis seems destined for either the practice squad or the weekly gameday inactive list as the No. 6 receiver. Davis is a developmental prospect whose ceiling may be a deep threat and special teams ace.

ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss believes second-year OLB Markus Golden "has the tools to become a star" in 2016.

Coach Bruce Arians hinted at this a little bit back in March after the team acquired Chandler Jones, suggesting Jones' addition will free up Golden for more one-on-one situations. Golden was in on 651 snaps as a rookie, and was credited with eight sacks and 49 combined hits and hurries by Pro Football Focus, while also receiving an elite pass-rush productivity score.

The Chicago Tribune reports RG Kyle Long has missed the Bears' last three practices with a "labrum issue" in his shoulder.

One source the Tribune spoke to was "not optimistic about the situation," while another source (presumably Long's agent) "was confident Long would return for Week 1. The Bears already lost starting C Hroniss Grasu to a year-ending ACL tear. Coach John Fox was predictably vague when asked about Long's timetable for return. "It doesn't really matter what I think," Fox said. "There are medical people involved and when he's cleared, he'll play."

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicts third-year WR Jared Abbrederis will be Green Bay's "breakout" player this season.

Abbrederis is listed as Randall Cobb's direct backup on the Packers' latest unofficial depth chart, suggesting he's no deeper than the No. 4 receiver. According to Demovsky, Abbrederis has enjoyed a "strong showing" at training camp and "continues to move up the depth chart." With Jeff Janis' abysmal camp and broken hand, Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams for No. 3 duties. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who can play both inside and outside.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman expects the Eagles to "feature" Darren Sproles in the passing game this season.

According to Berman, new OC Frank Reich said that every week during meetings, the coaching staff would ask, "How can we get this guy the football?" regarding Sproles. The 33-year-old caught 55 passes last season, but could jump back up into the 65-75 range similar to his New Orleans days. Ryan Mathews isn't going to play on third downs, leaving all of that work to Sproles. Reich was the Chargers' OC last season when Danny Woodhead caught 80 balls.

Patriots released WR Nate Washington.

Washington was buried on the depth chart in New England and didn't even make it to final cuts. The 33-year-old (on Sunday) had some big games for the Texans last season on his way to a 48-661-4 line, but wasn't brought back and settled for a minimum deal with the Patriots. He should be able to land another look-see at some point this season once injuries hit other teams.

Coach Dirk Koetter praised Austin Seferian-Jenkins' work ethic over the past couple weeks.

After opening camp as the clear No. 2 to Cameron Brate, ASJ has gained the ground back and is splitting first-team reps with Brate. "Austin's worked his way right back in there," Koetter said. "And when he got moved down the depth chart all you can ask a player when he gets moved down is that he competes and does better and tries to get back up there and he's done that." It was a motivational tactic by Koetter, and it's paid off. ASJ is a high-upside late-round flier.
