The Green Bay Packers were hoping to find an adequate backup quarterback this preseason, and after it initially appeared it was Graham Harrell’s job to lose, they’ve now opted to release him, and it looks as though they’ll be going with Vince Young instead.

Through three preseason games, Harrell completed just 23/42 passes (54.8 percent) for 169 yards (4.02 YPA) and one interception.

The latest news regarding PEDs and HGH testing comes from PFT’s Mike Florio, who reports the NFL has agreed to use third-party arbitration for both HGH testing and PED testing.

CBS Sports is however reporting the NFL and player’s union have stalled on HGH testing, and that Congress could get involved.

Denver Broncos starting slot receiver Wes Welker’s mild right ankle sprain will keep him out for the remainder of the preseason, but coach John Fox insists he could play if there was a regular-season game tomorrow.

The Broncos got another scare in their defensive backfield Thursday after cornerback Dominique Rodgers- Cromartie suffered what appeared to be a back injury about 20 minutes into practice Thursday, but eventually returned to the field and will be fine.

It will be a miracle if San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Marcus Lattimore is ever able to come close to living up to his potential after a series of season-ending knee injuries in college. For now, his NFL career is being put on hold for at least the first-half of this season.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh said that Lattimore will begin the season on the PUP list, making him ineligible for at least the first six games.
