 Latest Draft Scout NFL Player News

Aug 22 2014 - Alex Henery, PK Alex Henery is in danger of being released. Henery, missed a 31-yard field-goal attempt Thursday against the Steelers. He missed a 47-yarder last week against the Patriots.

Aug 22 2014 - Chris Polk, RB Chris Polk missed his third straight preseason game with a hamstring injury. He suffered the injury on the second day of training camp. Polk, who was supposed to be the Eagles' No. 3 running back behind LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles, is in jeopardy of not making the team.

Aug 22 2014 - Jeremy Maclin, WR Jeremy Maclin crumpled to the turf without being hit early in the second quarter Thursday and grabbed his knee. But he eventually walked off under his own power and later returned to the game.
   "It was obviously an awkward fall," he said. "It was similar to what I did last year (when he tore his ACL), with the knee going straight into the ground like that. Luckily, my quad is strong enough and the leg is intact."

Aug 22 2014 - LeSean McCoy, RB LeSean McCoy suffered a thumb injury and went to the locker room during the first quarter of Thursday night's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but coach Chip Kelly called the injury "no big deal."
   X-rays were negative and McCoy came back to the sideline and had his right hand taped.
   During a first-quarter series, McCoy took a hard hit from Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons on a play that resulted in a 5-yard loss. McCoy came off the field and requested a trainer.
   On the Eagles' next offensive series, McCoy went back into the game and scored a touchdown on a 22-yard screen pass from quarterback Nick Foles.
   McCoy acknowledged after the game that his thumb was sore.
   "A helmet hit it," McCoy said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. "It definitely hurts. But there have been times I've been banged up and it turns out fine. We'll see what happens."

Aug 21 2014 - Jeremy Deering, S Jeremy Deering cleared waivers and was placed on reserve/injured Thursday (Aug. 21).

Aug 21 2014 - Shane Lechler, P Shane Lechler, who turned 38 this month, has punted six times in two games. He has a 49.7-yard gross and a 43.2 net. In the altitude of Denver, where he punted every season when he played for Oakland, no telling how much he'll boost those averages on Saturday night.

Aug 21 2014 - D.J. Swearinger, D.J. Swearinger, the second-year strong safety, spent a lot of time during practice this week banging on Denver receivers and then talking about it to them afterward. He's got to be careful about drawing taunting penalties in games. Swearinger is a ferocious hitter who's worked hard to improve in coverage.

Aug 21 2014 - Tyson Clabo, T Tyson Clabo, who started on the right side in last week's victory over Atlanta, one of his former teams, has been practicing against another of his former teams, the Broncos. He signed as an undrafted free agent with Denver. The executive who signed him was Rick Smith, the Texans' general manager. Clabo is expected to be the swing tackle behind starters Duane Brown and Derek Newton.

Aug 21 2014 - James Ferentz, C James Ferentz, the son of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, is starting his second consecutive game in place of Chris Myers, who's out with an undisclosed injury. Myers, who's never missed a start, will be ready for the opener against Washington. Ferentz is 6-2, 285. The coaches like him because he's smart, strong, scrappy and has a tremendous work ethic.

Aug 21 2014 - DeAndre Hopkins, WR DeAndre Hopkins had a spectacular week of practice against the Broncos. He made six outstanding catches, including three touchdowns with Broncos defensive backs draped all over him. Hopkins has strong hands and excellent leaping ability that begins with exceptional timing.

Aug 21 2014 - Jadeveon Clowney, OLB Jadeveon Clowney was making a good impression on the Broncos before he left Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury. He walked off with no problem, spent the rest of practice on a trainer's table under a tent not getting treatment, then walked to the bus without a problem after practice.
   Still, Clowney wasn't at Thursday's practice.
   "He's doing fine," coach Bill O'Brien said. "We just held him out today. He'll be fine."
   Before he was injured, Clowney impressed the Broncos.
   "A couple of those moves (Clowney) makes are very impressive," Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. "He's so quick and so fast.
   "He's such a freak as far as his athletic ability. It's been good for us to go against him."
   Added defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, "(Clowney) comes in with a high pedigree, and just looking at the way he moves out here, he'll fit into that (greatness) category."
   Clowney is making the transition from defensive end in college to outside linebacker in a 3-4 in the NFL the same transition DeMarcus Ware made with the Dallas Cowboys.
   Ware is playing in his first season with the Broncos.
   "You can see his athleticism," Ware said. "He's still young, but he's a great player. Experience comes with years and maturing of the game and figuring out the speed of it."

Aug 21 2014 - J.J. Watt, During the Texans' three days of joint practices with the Broncos at Denver, defensive end J.J. Watt was in the news. It started with Watt going public with his frustrations over his failure to get a contract extension.
   Watt's agent, Tom Condon, has been involved in negotiations with the Texans on an extension, but they've been unable to reach an agreement. Watt's in the fourth year of the four-year contract he signed in 2011, with a base salary this year of $1.9 million. In May, the Texans exercised a fifth-year option in 2015 for $6.9 million.
   "I sure as heck hope we can make something happen," Watt said. "I get paid to go after quarterbacks. There are people who get paid to decide how much I get paid to go after quarterbacks. I'll let them decide that (how much he's worth).
   "I hope I've given the effort and everything they could want to hopefully show that appreciation."
   General manager Rick Smith has a policy of no contract negotiations during the regular season, so they're working with a deadline.
   Watt has no intention of playing anywhere but Houston.
   "I love the fans we have," he said. "I love the relationship we have. The city's so great. The way they've treated (me) and my family, I couldn't ask for a better place to play."
   Watt wouldn't consider holding out.
   "Because that would cause me to miss time with my teammates, and right now, I want to practice," he said. "I want to be out here with these young guys. I want to teach them the things I know.
   "I want to better myself. It hasn't really come to that. I want to be a Houston Texan. I want to play football. I want to be the best I can be, and I can't do that by sitting on my couch."
   Watt was the 11th overall pick in the 2011 draft. That was the first draft class under the new collective bargaining agreement that severely reduced guaranteed money for first-round picks.
   Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson and Dallas offensive tackle Tyron Smith were selected ahead of

Aug 21 2014 - LeGarrette Blount, RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount played Thursday night, one day after they were arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana after the car they were in was pulled over by a traffic officer in Ross Township, Pa. Bell started against the Eagles and finished with 23 yards on nine attempts. Blount gained 32 yards on seven carries.
   Steelers coach Mike Tomlin declined to comment on the charges, other than to say that he was disappointed and that the arrests had no impact on the game. Bell also refused to talk about the incident and just said he was disappointed in the way his team played.

Aug 21 2014 - Justin Gilbert, Coach Mike Pettine is projecting rookie Justin Gilbert as the starting right cornerback for the season opener.
