Knights in the NFL // Training Camp Update 3!

New, 2 comments

Football is Back! The preseason in in full swing and games are finally underway. Who helped their stock? Who didn't? It's all here in the third edition

Knights on the Move

Nothing official, but Jeremy Deering has garnered a lot of interest from teams and could have a spot by the end of the week.

Brandon Coleman

'Nuff said.

Khaseem Greene

Greene spent the past week receiving plenty of praise from his head coach Lovie Smith. He is moving from OLB to MLB which could pay big dividends for him. He starred at that position for Rutgers and is fighting to be the top backup for the Bucs. He is catching on well with the Bucs and could find himself plenty of playing time if he continues to impress Lovie Smith.

George Johnson

The Bengals had many problems on Monday night, including keeping the Rutgers product out of the backfield. The Bucs have needed someone to step up at defensive end to compliment Gerald McCoy and Johnson is proving to be that guy. He had 1.5 sacks and 4 tackles against the Bengals and even those stats don't do him justice for the effort he gave.

Trending Down

Quron Pratt

Pratt had another rough week for the Eagles, as he dropped two passes. One of them was a great play but he failed to maintain possession as he hit the ground. Those ridiculous looking plays are the type that help a guy like Pratt remain with a team. He simply needs to make the most of his limited opportunities in order to stay on the Eagles.

Andrew Turzilli

Turzilli suffered an ankle injury which is devastating for a player in his position.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Andrew Turzilli has a high ankle sprain.</p>&mdash; Terry McCormick (@terrymc13) <a href="https://twitter.com/terrymc13/status/635909020461563904">August 24, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

That type of injury could take weeks to come back from and Turzilli was likely a practice squad player at best before the injury.

Preseason Snapshots

Brandon Coleman put his huge frame to use and continues to impress in New Orleans
