Report: David Johnson injury isn’t serious
Running back David Johnson missed practice time this week with an injury, but it doesn’t sound like it should be a long-term absence for a player who missed 15 games after injuring his wrist in last year’s season opener.
While the exact nature of the problem remains unknown, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that Johnson’s injury is not considered serious.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is the latest to be deposed in Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL. Have a story you think we should include in tomorrow’s Press Coverage? Let us know here. THE KICKER The scuttlebutt yesterday was that the Browns are now eyeing Baker Mayfield at No. 1. That was after they had their sights set on Sam Darnold. And that came after they were locked in on Josh Allen. No doubt that today, the word around draft circles will have them keying in on Josh Rosen.
The 26-year-old McCain initially entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Dolphins. He has also spent time with the Saints and Cowboys. Last year he had his best season, playing in 15 games and recording five sacks.
Athletically, teams are intrigued by what he can do, but there is plenty of concern about his left knee. He tore an ACL and dislocated a knee during his senior year of high school. He had another surgery, in 2016, to repair the meniscus in the same knee.
Jefferson missed some time in 2016 with a concussion, but rebounded with 110 tackles in 2017, including a 14-tackle day against Oklahoma. Some see a better athlete than player at the moment, but the potential is clear.
Smith is a power-first player on the interior of the offensive line. He was a Kansas high school state champion in shot put and discus. He has the chance to be a starter if he cleans up his footwork issues and plays with more balance.
