Player Notes

  • Ryan Mallett returns to Texans practice
    Ryan Mallett returned to Texans practice Friday after oversleeping on Thursday, and was the third quarterback through practice drills.

    Advice: Coach Bill O'Brien did insist after the session that Mallett remains second on the depth chart behind Brian Hoyer. "The situation with Ryan not being at practice that's between Ryan and I," O'Brien said. "Some things are left within the team." Mallett should open the season carrying the clipboard for Hoyer.

  • Jarvis Landry to do 'a lot of red-zone damage'
    ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker expects Jarvis Landry to "do a lot of damage in the red zone" this season.

    Advice: Walker "wouldn't be surprised" if Landry doubles his TD total (5) from last season and becomes a double-digit touchdown scorer. It's been clear since last season that Landry is Ryan Tannehill's favorite target, and if Miami's second preseason game was any indication, Landry is going to be a preferred option near the goal line. On back-to-back third- and fourth-and-goal plays, Tannehill threw to Landry. He'll likely threaten 90 catches and eight scores. Today, 8:02 am

  • Terrelle Pryor 'on course' to play Saturday
    Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is "on course" to play in the Browns' third preseason game Saturday barring a setback on Friday.

    Advice: Pryor needs it. After missing the majority of the month with a hamstring injury, Pryor sounded "dejected" at practice this week with the injury taking its toll on him. Pryor just needs to get on the field Saturday and show something -- anything, really -- to earn a 53-man roster spot. We can't see the rebuilding Browns cutting the only physically-gifted, big receiver on the team. Today, 7:12 am

  • Ivory had best camp, 'primed for career year'
    ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Chris Ivory is "primed for a career year."

    Advice: Cimini says 27-year-old Ivory has had his best camp in three years with the Jets and has clearly worked on his pass-game chops. Ivory is the crystal-clear lead dog in the Jets' backfield and could see "about 20 touches per week" with 3-4 looks in the passing game. Not only is Ivory the favorite for early-down duties between the 20s, he also has a stranglehold on goal-line work. Deservedly, Ivory's ADP has soared three full rounds into the fifth since the start of August. Today, 6:38 am
    Week 1 Projected Rank
  • Vernon Davis to be bigger part of offense
    The 49ers promised Vernon Davis would be a bigger part of the offense this season.

    Advice: ESPN's Paul Gutierrez expects Davis to re-emerge as an option in the red zone and be San Francisco's "breakout" player on offense. Davis is 31, but entering a contract year and coming off a strong offseason in which he didn't hold out of OTAs and minicamp. With sure-handed Michael Crabtree and Stevie Johnson gone, Davis and Anquan Boldin figure to be leaned on by Colin Kaepernick. Today, 6:29 am
