- According to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals’ official site, Tyler Eifert (ankle) is not expected to back until the earlier weeks of the regular season.
- Hobson notes that second team TE Tyler Kroft may be out until Week 1 of the regular season after suffering a knee injury on Tuesday.
Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen would not say whether first-round OL Laremy Tunsil will start for Week 1 of the regular season.
“He’s going to be a really fine left tackle at whatever point, but there is a learning curve for him at guard,” Christensen said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Dolphins OL coach Chris Foerster also mentioned that Dallas Thomas is currently ahead of Tunsil in the competition for first team left guard.
“Obviously, there’s a learning curve for everybody. At this point, we are letting Dallas roll, although Tunsil is taking some,” said Foerster. “A lot of it has to do with how we’re trying to get Laremy reps in other positions… If it’s a day we’re trying to get Tunsil more at left tackle, that affects everybody in the rotation.”
- Jordan Raanan of ESPN writes that “it’s clear” second-round WR Sterling Shepard will be a “big part” of the Giants’ offense.
- Giants’ practice squad WR Tavarres King is making a “strong push” to land the team’s No. 5 receiver role.
Jets CB Darrelle Revis acknowledged that it is a possibility for him to convert to safety in the future, but he still feels that he is an effective cornerback.
“There will probably be conversations in the future about maybe moving my position to safety,” Revis said, via Connor Hughes of NJ Advance Media. “But as of right now, I still feel I can play at a high level, and play the cornerback position at a high level.”
