George Johnson

Welcome to the sack party! Johnson notched his first sack with the Bucs in their preseason game against the Bengals.

Kaleb Johnson

it is hard to measure an offensive lineman's success with just stats so that is what we have Pro Football Focus for. They analyze every single aspect of a players game on every single play and came out with their top rookies of Preseason Week 2.

Logan Ryan

Ryan was making some plays in the Pats preseason game and people took notice.

Trending Down

Tim Wright

Wright went from being traded for one of the best tackles in football, to being traded for a backup rookie kicker. Not to mention being cut from the Patriots between trades. He was just traded from the Bucs to Lions, joining fellow RU alums Kevin Snyder and Michael Burton. He finds himself on a roster with plenty of TEs and will face stiff competition.

Michael Burton

At one point, Burton was seemingly a lock to be the Lions starting fullback. Now he is being challenged and may not be the only fullback on the 53-man roster.
This certainly does not help:

Others News and Notes

  • Kevin Snyder was placed on season-ending IR by the Lions after suffering a hand injury.
  • Quron Pratt survived the first round of cuts from the Eagles, even though Chip Kelly gave 3 WRs the axe

  • Andrew Turzilli placed on Injured Reserve with a high-ankle sprain
  • Jason McCourty had groin surgery and should be back after the Titans week 4 bye
