Joe Mixon Needs Help From Offensive Line

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has managed just 17 rushing yards on seven attempts, or 2.4 yards per rush, through two preseason games.

Jon Brown Apparently Auditioning For Other Teams

Cincinnati Bengals place kicker Jon Brown connected on a 55-yard field goal in Saturday's preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Terrelle Pryor Makes Return To The Practice Field

New York Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor (ankle) was able to return to the practice field Saturday. He has been taking it slow in his return from a broken ankle suffered back in May.

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold started Thursday's preseason road game against the Washington Redskins and he played the entire first half.

Josh McCown Will Not Play Thursday

New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Washington Redskins. Apparently head coach Todd Bowles wants to see a lot more of rookie Sam Darnold, as well as Teddy Bridgewater. It's unlikely the Jets will be able to move the aging McCown, as he is 39 years old...
