NFL Notes: Chargers, Cowboys, Raiders, Texans


Chargers TE Antonio Gates spoke highly of newly acquired QB Cardale Jones and his potential, saying he has an “unlimited” ceiling.

“The ceiling is unlimited for him,” Gates said, via Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “Whether or not he gets there all depends on the ability to process things — on the ability to work hard and to make these sacrifices that he needs to make in the classroom and on the field. And, he’s been doing a great job at that so far.

  • According to Todd Archer, Cowboys rookie CB Chidobe Awuzie appeared to tweak an ankle.

  • Raiders G Jon Feliciano officially passed a physical on Thursday and has been removed from the team’s PUP list.


Texans HC Bill O’Brien mentioned that first-round QB Deshaun Watson has a lot to build on after an encouraging preseason performance on Wednesday.

“There’s a lot to build on,” O’Brien said, via “There’s a lot to correct. He knows that. He was about 50-50 on some of the schemes we run, right or wrong. He was right 50 percent of the time and wrong 50 percent of the time. That’s to be expected with a rookie. I think his overall poise and demeanor and the way he sees the game is pretty impressive to me and it’s the same for Tom [Savage]”
