Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) has shown no signs of rust so far, according to cbssports.com.Fantasy Spin:Johnson sat out OTAs and minicamp because he wanted to be traded and he missed the early portion of training camp with a hamstring injury. We have confidence in his ability to build a rapport with new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and learn Bill O'Brien's offensive scheme quickly. He had 109 catches, 1,407 yards and five touchdowns on 181 targets last season despite having to catch passes from Matt Schaub and Case Keenum.

Report: Raiders Derek Carr to sit out preseason game vs Packers

Report: Raiders Derek Carr to sit out preseason game vs Packers

Raiders rookie quarterback, Derek Carr left the team's preseason game against the Lions last week clutching his ribs. Dennis Allen said afterward that Carr did have hurt ribs but was removed from the game due to a concussion. While he return to practice Monday, passing the concussion protocol, he was wearing padding on his midsection. His participation on the team's third preseason game in Green Bay was very much in question. Now NFL.com's Steve Wyche is reporting he was told by Dennis Allen that Carr will not play in the game. Matt Schaub will start the game, as he has all games up to...

Jaguars preseason 2014: Lions secondary could be just what Blake Bortles needs

We asked Sean Yuille of Pride of Detroit five questions about the Jaguars preseason matchup against the Lions on Friday night. Here's his answers. 1. Blake Bortles has shown success in his first two preseason games against the Buccaneers and Bears, but those two teams have mediocre pass defenses. What can Jaguars fans expect out of Detroit's secondary, and pass defense in general? The Lions' secondary has done an okay job this preseason, but that's not exactly saying much. They faced Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel in the first game and Matt Schaub and Derek Carr last week. On paper, the...

Raiders defensive backs, offensive line must step it up

Raiders defensive backs, offensive line must step it up

While Matt Schaub has taken his share of criticism, his abilities won't matter if Oakland can't block or defend the pass. "The Raiders signed up for a season's worth of Matt Schaub. Now they have to live with it." That's the opening line of NFL.com's article from the weekend entitled, "Raiders face reality check with Schaub, Carr," and if I watched the same game Marc Sessler did, I'm not sure where he gets his thesis from. Schaub finished Friday's game 8/13 for 87 yards and an interception (one that even Sessler acknowledged wasn't his fault). Of the 5 incompletions, I challenge anyone to...

Raiders first team with rough start, show signs of life

Matt Schaub came out firing early, with three nice completions on the first series. He connected with James Jones and Rod Streater on consecutive plays. Then he hit Mychal Rivera along the sideline who shook some defenders for a big gain. That's when the wheels came off. Schaub went for James Jones on a crossing route and the defender got a piece of it to knock it in the air where James Ihedigbo picked it off and got a pretty good return out of it. The Lions would score a touchdown on the ensuing possession when Golden Tate got behind Tarell Brown to walk in for a 28-yard touchdown. Their...

For Matt Schaub, It’s Already Third and Long

NAPA, CALIF. – The phone calls came with the fall. Around midseason in 2013, when then-Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was tossing interceptions more frequently than touchdowns, his phone buzzed with unfamiliar numbers. Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner left a message, Jeff Garcia offered advice, then Trent Dilfer, and then Steve Young. Those close to Schaub […]

Raiders start off with woeful 10-0 loss

MINNEAPOLIS — It’s the preseason, so how bad could it have really been? Pretty bad. The Raiders first-team defense got shredded by Matt Cassel, and the offense didn’t look much better. New starting quarterback Matt Schaub nearly threw an interception on his first pass, and was ineffective in a quarter of play, finishing 3-of-7 for 21 yards. Oakland would go on to lose by a score of 10-0 but it felt like a 40-point difference. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr came in and threw an interception and threw behind receivers in his debut, and Matt McGloin couldn’t get any points on the board...

Raiders starters stumble in start to preseason

Every football fan awaits the first game of the preseason as the first time in some seven months they get to see their team play. For Raiders fans, that wait was met with an all too familiar disappointment. The Raiders didn't even get the first snap off before things began falling apart. Menelik Watson called for a false start on the first play attempt to begin at first and 15. Then it was two incompletions to Andre Holmes from Matt Schaub and a three and out to begin the game. With Matt Cassel behind center, the Vikings were in Raiders territory quickly after two completions to Cordarelle...
