The Texans won’t keep us waiting in suspense. Most of the cuts that have to be made by tomorrow afternoon will actually take place today, a team source tells James Palmer of CSNHouston.com (on Twitter). The latest from the AFC and NFC South..
- Center Mike Brewster, who began training camp as the team’s starter, knows he might have played his last game with the Jaguars, writes Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. The Jaguars gave Jacques McClendon and sixth-round pick Luke Bowanko reps over Brewster in the third preseason game at Detroit. Last night, Brewster bounced a snap past quarterback Ricky Stanzi.
- Even though undrafted rookie receiver Geraldo Boldewijn suffered a hamstring injury, fellow UDFA WR Bernard Reedy is not a slam dunk to make the Falcons‘ roster, writes Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. Reedy is lightning fast, but he doesn’t fill Atlanta’s need for quality special teams guys. Veterans Eric Weems and Courtney Roby are more likely to be the guys behind Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas, and Devin Hester.
- Even though Saints receivers Nick Toon and Robert Meachem haven’t made a great case to stick on the roster, they should survive tomorrow’s cut-down, writes Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune. Between Brandon Coleman, Seantavious Jones, and Charles Hawkins two of the three seem likely to land on the practice squad.
- It may not be ideal to keep three quarterbacks on a roster, but Mike Triplett of ESPN.com projects that the Saints will keep Ryan Griffin as their third signal caller behind Drew Brees and Luke McCown.
