Three and out: Seeking clarity on Texans’ Johnson

The Texans have been coy about Andre Johnson’s injury, but there is starting to be some clarity as to its severity.

Who should fill in for Andre Johnson?

Texans coach Gary Kubiak assured fantasy enthusiasts when he said that WR Dre Johnson was going to miss “some time.” And by assuring us, I mean he could not have been more vague. Oh well, hopefully Dre will start tweeting out MRI photos like his teammate Arian Foster did.

Three and out: Texans’ Johnson could “miss a few weeks”

Andre Johnson’s injury might not be as serious as first thought, but it could still be enough to keep him out for a time.

Three and out: Greene to see big workload

Fantasy owners looking for a breakout candidate at running back should look no further than Shonn Greene.

Burress, in great shape, plots his return to NFL

Plaxico Burress is in our studios today, and I can tell you he immediately passed the eye test. Brian Baldinger and Solomon Wilcots immediately noted and commented on his physical appearance, and Burress told me he’s sticking to a strict regimen in South Florida, and his legs feel as strong and explosive as ever. “This is best I’ve felt in years,” he said. Burress is spending his days at Bommarito Performance Systems, an elite training facility, and has been joined there by other top receivers such as Chad Ochocinco and Sidney Rice. He said the ankle issues that bogged him down in the past are long gone, and he will be ready to go whenever the lockout ends. Baldinger asked […]

The ‘Top 100′ comes down to Brady-Manning

NFL players crowned their No. 1 on NFL Network’s “The Top 100 Players of 2011″ on Sunday night, completing a 10-week voyage that generated as much controversy as it did consensus before coming down to yet another battle between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. This time, it was Brady’s hour.

A few minutes with … Roddy White

Our latest offseason visitor to NFL Network was Roddy White, who took a few minutes to discuss the NFL’s best receivers, Tom Brady, and what the Falcons need to do to improve.

Data Points: Leaders in receiving yards

Logic would dictate that Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson are the top two wideouts in the NFL, but perhaps Roddy White belongs in that discussion.

Three and out: Britt’s value rising … for now

The fantasy value of Titans WR Kenny Britt could skyrocket soon … if the team adds a veteran quarterback this summer.

A few minutes with … Ronde Barber

Bucs veteran Ronde Barber took some time out during a visit to the NFL Network studios to discuss when it’s really time to retire, why Peyton Manning is the best player in the NFL and ranking am0ng the all-time greats.

Kubiak thankful for Andre Johnson’s connections

Texans coach Gary Kubiak doesn’t seem at all bothered that Andre Johnson has reportedly lobbied free agent Nnamdi Asomugha to join him in Houston.

First and 10: Questions for Kubiak

Now that Texans coach Gary Kubiak has agreed to be in studio Tuesday for “NFL Total Access” on NFL Network, he must be thrilled about star WR Andre Johnson‘s recent comments about trying to recruit free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha.

Plenty of wideouts to debate on ‘Top 100′ list

No position is better represented on NFL Network’s “Top 100 Players of 2011″ than wide receiver, with 18 making the cut as voted by players. On Sunday, 10 more players were revealed, including two wideouts — Miles Austin (No.70) and Brandon Marshall (No. 61). Austin and Marshall join fellow wideouts Terrell Owens (91), Josh Cribbs (84), Mike Williams (83), Santonio Holmes (76), and Greg Jennings (74) with 11 more to come. NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp believes Marshall would be higher on the list with more stability at the QB position in Miami. “I think that might have a little something to do with the quarterback that was throwing him the ball,” Sapp said. “Normally when you have a good […]

Three…more…days.

If you’re a draftnik, and if you think Mike Mayock and Mel Kiper are like Axl and Slash, then you know what’s in three days. The path to prime time is getting short, as draft weekend starts Thursday.

So if the NFL draft is just three days away, then what are some good draft 3s?

Zbikowski-Ocho headlines ultimate NFL boxing card
