From the Morning:
ESPN’s John Clayton referred to rookie RB Isaiah Pead as a Darren Sproles-style back with speed, decent hands and an ability to run up the middle well. Pead may very well be the next former Bearcat to go under the radar in the draft, only to take the NFL by storm. Just ask Trent Cole, Connor Barwin, Jason Kelce, and Brent Celek how they’ve faired.
Ravens LB Paul Kruger has been one of the highlights in the early stages of training camp. He’ll be tasked with replacing All-Pro OLB Terrell Suggs for the duration of the 2012 season, so its nice to know he’s stepping his game up to do just that.
Titans center Eugene Amano is out for the 2012 season with a torn triceps injury.
Browns LB Chris Gocong has been diagnosed with a ruptured right Achilles’ tendon, and is done for the season.
Free agent safety Jim Leonhard and the Broncos agreed to a one-year deal.
Former Steelers CB Jack Butler will complete his Hall of Fame journey this weekend.
Cowboys rookie CB Morris Claiborne will be out at least a week with a sprained MCL.
Justin Rogers is listed as the Bills’ primary kick returner.
The Dolphins and punter Brandon Fields agree to 4-year, $13.3 million deal.
Broncos TE Virgil Green’s suspension for violating the league’s PED policy has been reduced from four games to three.
