Antonio Allen Suffers Concussion

Just call it the curse of the corners. Even the safety turned corner will be visiting the trainer this week. Just one week after suffering several key injuries to the secondary, the Jets lost their converted safety before half time. It's another blow to the Jets, who were forced to push journeyman LeQuan Lewis into a starting role once Allen exited the game. Rex Ryan has confirmed the concussion and says Allen is currently going through the NFL's concussion protocol. We need to hope it's not too serious with the season just two weeks away. Allen was playing well before he excited and had an...

Eagles vs. Jets: Matt Barkley will start at quarterback in Philadelphia's preseason finale

Players not playing in the Eagles' final 2014 preseason game against the New York Jets include starters and several key backups. According to Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, the Eagles' starters will not play in team's final preseason game against the New York Jets on Thursday, August 28th. This announcement doesn't come as a surprise because starters typically never play in the final game. The last game of preseason typically serves as a chance for backups and reserve players to make their case for a roster spot, whether that's with Philadelphia or one of the other 31 NFL teams...

Patriots vs. Panthers: Fan Notes from the Preseason

A few pointless notes taken during the New England Patriots' 30-7 win over the Carolina Panthers. Week 3 of the preseason, and the Patriots look great! Cue the duckboats! Arizona here we come! While it was nice to actually win a Week 3 preseason game - the past few years the Patriots have found themselves on the receiving end of an absolute beatdown by a Lions team that likely would have held a parade through the streets of Detroit after those games had Detroit actually had access to street that wasn't riddled with burnt out car shells and tumbleweeds -  I'm doing my very best to curb my...

Miami Dolphins Rookie Guard Billy Turner Battling Turf Toe Injury

Miami Dolphins Rookie Guard Billy Turner Battling Turf Toe Injury

Turner is trying to play through the injury, but it may be cited as one of the reasons why he's not a starter for the first half of the season A few months ago, the Dolphins traded away a fourth round pick just to move up a few spots in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft to select North Dakota State University left tackle Billy Turner. Turner was a player who had spent most of his college career at left tackle, but the Dolphins had previously addressed offensive tackle with the signing of free agent Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert and the drafting of Tennessee's experienced...

Cowboys vs Dolphins: Tony Romo's health and replacing DeMarcus Ware

We asked five questions about the Dallas Cowboys to David Halprin of Blogging the Boys. We take a closer look at tonight's Preseason contest by getting to know the Cowboys a little better. Kevin Nogle, The Phinsider (KN): How has Tony Romo looked in training camp and the preseason, following his offseason back surgery? David Halprin, Blogging the Boys (DH): The best thing we can say so far about Tony Romo's back after the offseason surgery is that he looked like the old Tony Romo in the last preseason game. He missed the first preseason game but played two series last week and looked very...

Breaking Down the Final Tune Up Before the Real Games Start

The dress rehearsal is complete and let's get ready for Week 1. The Giants brought home the super cool Snoopy Trophy with a 35-24 win last night.  This game was a tale of two halves. The first half saw the Jets starters outplay the Giants starters and take a 10-7 halftime lead into the locker room. Offensively, there was a lot to like.  Geno looked good, and he spread the wealth. Rookie second round pick TE Jace Amaro hauled in 4 passes and grabbed Geno's first TD pass of the preseason. Eric Decker showed you some of what made him a 7.5 million dollar a year WR. The running game was...

Mike Williams is ideal for the Bills, and other questions with Buffalo Rumblings

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills face off later today, and Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings was kind enough to join us and answer some questions to celebrate that joyous occasion. 1. The Bills actually have a surprising amount of talent on defense, but with Mike Pettine gone, can they put up another good season? That depends on what you mean by "good," I think. Pettine's defense is a fantastic scheme that helped the Bills set a franchise record with 57 sacks (second in the NFL last year) and rake in 23 interceptions (also second in the league), but they were also fairly...
