Week 3 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Thursday
Saints QB Drew Brees (right shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Brees has a bruised rotator cuff, but says he’s “pretty confident” that he’ll be able to play in Week 3 against the Panthers. It’s not a great spot for him, but the Saints tend to go pass-heavy when the chips are down.
Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Cutler is supposed to miss at least two weeks with a bum hamstring, though the deceitful Bears are intimating that he may be able to play. We should know more when the Bears fly to Seattle. He obviously won’t play if he’s not on the plane. Jimmy Clausen will start against the Seahawks. Poor guy.
Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. It looks like Tannehill is on track to play against the Bills. The Dolphins have gone pass-heavy in the first two weeks and are likely to do so again in Week 3.
