NFL Missing Person Updates:

  • HURT:
    • Bills rookie linebacker Reggie Ragland – ACL – out for the season
    • Giants WR Victor Cruz – strained calf; won’t play first preseason game
  • CUT:
  • BACK:
    • Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham – first day of practice off the PUP list
    • Patriots tiny person Julian Edelman – tweaked foot feels fine
  • CONTRACT DISPUTE:
    • Chiefs safety Eric Berry – refuses to accept franchise tag of $10.8 million
    • Chargers rookie Joey Bosa
      • Chargers GM Tom Telesco feels Bosa needs to compromise
      • Antonio Gates says Bosa should “be a man” and find a way to get to camp
      • Bosa’s father, John, also was a holdout as an NFL rookie. John Bosa was a defensive lineman drafted No. 16 by the Dolphins in 1987 and held out 41 days before signing his rookie contract, according to ESPN.
  • RELEASED:
    • Tony Siragusa – from FOX NFL broadcasts
      • replaced by Chris Spielman
  • LOOKING FOR WORK:
    • Former Baylor coach Art Briles – visited the Cowboys
      • Jerry Jones vouched for his character, saying “I’d want my grandson, if he had the chance, to play for him.”
        • the question is, would he let his granddaughter attend?

Finally, ESPN stalwart John Saunders passed away at age 61. When I go, I want someone of Hannah Storm’s calibre to make my announcement.

There’s a much longer tribute involving Stephen A. Smith. You can find that here, and I’m sure tWWL will have others throughout the day. Sad.

Deadspin watched Hard Knocks, and found the moment when Jeff Fisher cut Nick Foles by telephone.

That’s about right. Welcome to Hollywood, Jeff Fisher. He’s probably getting that call himself in about 2 years.

————————————————————————————————————————————

Some motorhead asked the question, does Brown’s rookie Corey Coleman have the ability to become Steve Smith. I guess so. But until you can do this, you are no Steve Smith.

The first lawsuit from the cancelled Hall of Fame game is expected Friday. It’s apparently going to be filed by the same lawyer that started a class-action suit over the seats fiasco from Super Bowl XLV. He’s going to be looking for tort claims, because that then could take into account punitive damages.

The story notes that the case about the missing Super Bowl seats is still ongoing, and over $20 million has already been spent by the League in that case.

———————————————————————————————————————————

It finally happens tomorrow night. Real, actual, non-cancelled preseason football.

  • Tampa Bay at Philadelphia – 7:00 pm
  • Washington at Atlanta – 7:00 pm
  • Carolina at Baltimore – 7:30 pm
  • New Orleans at New England – 7:30 pm – on NFL Network
  • Jacksonville at N.Y. Jets – 7:30 pm
  • Denver at Chicago – 8:00 pm

Make sure to talk about your game in the comments while we all bitch about the Jimmy Garoppolo era being the first thing on the NFL Network. WHY NOT SANCHEZ V CUTLER?!

Tonight’s sports:

  • non-Olympic:
    • MLB: Yankees @ Red Sox – 7:00 (ESPN)
    • U.S. Open Cup Soccer: Los Angeles vs. FC Dallas – 10:00 (ESPN2)
  • Olympic:
    • Men’s basketball: U.S. vs. Australia – 6:00 (NBCSN)
    • NBC primetime – 8:00
      • more Phelps & Ledecky action

    • Men’s soccer: Denmark vs. Brazil – 9:00 (NBCSN)
      • if you want to see a country burn, root for Denmark

All Canada’s medals so far have been won by women. I can’t wait to read MRA twitter if it stays that way. WHY SO BUTTHURT?
