Phillips considering risks of playing rookie Bryant

Wade Phillips is still considering whether he’ll use his starters in the Cowboys’ preseason finale against the Dolphins, and is giving special consideration to the status of rookie Dez Bryant.

Daniels activated by Texans, set to practice

The Texans activated Daniels from the active/physically-unable-to-perform list on Monday, meaning he’s eligible to begin practicing with the team.

Leinart says he has ‘outplayed the competition’

Ken Whisenhunt said following practice on Monday that he hasn’t made a decision on the whole Matt Leinart versus Derek Anderson thing, meaning it isn’t going away anytime soon.

Bengals poised to move on after costly mistake

The curious case of the Bengals and Antonio Bryant turned out to be more odd than curious, and came to an end when the receiver was released on Sunday.

Chiefs on the wrong side of a streak

The Chiefs’ 20-17 loss to the Eagles on Friday dropped them to 0-3 this preseason — and 0-7 in preseason games since Todd Haley took over the team.

Roundup: A look back at Saturday night

It’s the morning after … nine games were on the NFL preseason slate on Saturday night, so let’s take a bullet-point look on thoughts and observations from around the league.

Foster going to be the man in Houston

Arian Foster will likely end that revolving door at running back for the Texans. Foster lit up the Cowboys for 110 yards and a touchdown to add the exclamation point to the position.

Did Wells just cost Leinart there?

The person most likely to benefit from Kurt Warner’s retirement figured to be RB Beanie Wells because when your choices are Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson, running the ball seems like an attractive option.

Dameshek spot on with Flacco Fantasy Live analyst Dave Dameshek really lamented over which sleeper to pick during a recent segment we filmed, before finally settling on Ravens QB Joe Flacco.

Overreaction Theater: Favre regrets coming back

No Sidney Rice. Teams taking liberties with his health. And now Brett Favre has fumbled and is seen shaking his hand. The overreaction here is that Favre is regretting coming back and he is going going to be the player that he was last year.

Bills finding many ways to use Spiller

Bills RB C.J. Spiller had a slow start, racking up negative yards in the early going. But you have to credit the Bills for trying to get the ball into the hands of their playmaker.

Palmer’s passing fancy coming into focus

QB Carson Palmer started the preseason efficient, working diligently to ease WR Terrell Owens into the lineup. Almost to the exclusion of everybody else.

Best already putting on show against Browns

The Lions offense continues to be impressive, and RB Jahvid Best continues to show that we should not be so quick to label Ryan Mathews as the top rookie running back.

Stop stressing; Mathews will get those goal-line carries

Is Ryan Mathews a first-round pick? Seems like we have been debating that over and over again during the preseason. As, in the video above, I firmly believe that Mathews should be a first-round pick.

Maybe other teams should follow the Jags’ lead

The Jaguars have pulled RB Maurice Jones-Drew for the rest of the preseason. Which is a good thing. The Jaguars should be trend setters here.
