No star players have sustained any major injuries this offseason so far, though J.J. Watt’s recovery from last offseason’s back ailments still loom large over the organization. As long as Watt is healthy and ready to hit the ground running in August, expect the Texans to be an elite defense yet again in 2017. If he still needs more time to “get right”, however, it may be another slow start for him this September as the training staff eases him back into a full time workload.
Despite practicing indoors, the Cardinals stuck with their regular game plan, going through individual position work and various situational drills. Coach Dan Quinn said he was glad to see his team focused and motivated during their final full practice before their first preseason game at Miami on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET
Friends, let your hearts be light, for we have nearly reached the first preseason game. We can talk about the things we see on the field for weeks, and savor it like a steak dinner. Assuming you like steak. It also means we’ll be talking about the game live, breaking down the position battle implications of what we see, and praying for a zero injuries for Atlanta. Nothing new there, but it’s going to feel good to get right back into the swing of it.
