Player Notes

  • D'Wayne Eskridge remains sidelined with toe issue
    Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge is not participating in minicamp due to a toe injury.

    Advice: Pete Carroll did not give a timetable on Eskridge's return but did note that it was unfortunate that the rookie was missing time while Seattle installed their new offense. This doesn't bode well for Eskridge, who has the chance to be the third receiver in an offense led by Russell Wilson. If he's unable to get back on the field in time to pick up the offense, Freddie Swain is expected to be the next man up. Swain started one game as a rookie in 2020 and amassed 13 receptions for 159 yards on the year.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 3:54 pm

  • Rashaad Penny underdoes knee cleanup
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny underwent a minor knee surgery but is expected to be ready for training camp. 

    Advice: Carroll described it as a "cleanup" procedure in the same knee Penny previously suffered a torn ACL. That injury came at the end of 2019 and it sidelined Penny for most of the 2020 season. Penny has struggled with injuries throughout his four pro seasons. With just 178 career touches to his name, he will compete for a role as Seattle's third-down back and Chris Carson's backup this summer. The timetable for Penny's recovery from this surgery isn't concerning but his inability to stay healthy in general is. If he can return in time for training camp without any lingering issues, Penny will be an interesting sleeper as a once-exciting player who can now be had for nothing in fantasy drafts.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 3:40 pm

  • Mac Jones outplaying Cam Newton in Pats minicamp
    Mac Jones had more first team snaps than Cam Newton Tuesday with the Athletic's Jeff Howe reporting he looked like "the best quarterback on the field."

    Advice: Newton has been the opening practice with the first team in Patriots minicamp, but Jones got more first-team reps Tuesday and attempted more throws. Jones notably had two interceptions late in practice, which could stall his momentum if not fixed quickly. But Newton showed less consistent accuracy on Tuesday, flubbing a handful of throws. While a couple of strong days in June won’t hurt, Jones still has a long way to go to unseat Newton as the starter. Still, if he delivers a strong July and August it’s not completely out of the question for Jones to be under center in Week 1.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm

  • Matt Nagy insists Andy Dalton will start Week 1
    Bears coach Matt Nagy insisted that Andy Dalton would be the Bears' starting quarterback for Week 1.

    Advice: When Chris Collinsworth asked Nagy if there was any way that Justin Fields would start Week 1, Nagy replied "No....Andy is our starter." Nagy has been unrelenting in supporting Dalton as the starter ever since Chicago traded up to select Fields with the No. 11 overall pick. Fields looks like the complete package as a prospect but may have to wait a few weeks before seeing any action. Dalton has 142 starts under his belt but his most recent reps were lackluster at best. He threw 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions while starting in place of Dak Prescott last year. Given the glut of weapons he was working with, those numbers are wildly underwhelming. Dalton will start in Week 1 barring a change of heart from Nagy but his tenure is unlikely to last long. Once the Bears string together a few losses in a row, expect Nagy to pull the ripcord and insert Fields into the lineup.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 12:42 pm

  • Fangio: Courtland Sutton won't start camp on PUP
    Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Courtland Sutton won't start training camp on the active/PUP list. 

    Advice: This comes as great news for Sutton, who appears to be making a flawless recovery from the torn ACL he suffered in Week 2 of the 2020 season. All previous reports have also indicated that he would be ready for training camp. Sutton broke out with 1,112 yards in 2019 while also earning his first Pro Bowl nod. He could return to an offense helmed by Teddy Bridgewater which will be a notable upgrade over Drew Lock. While not exactly an exciting passer, Bridgewater propelled three receivers to top-25 fantasy seasons last year. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 11:52 am
