Despite head coach Dan Quinn saying Tevin Coleman (groin) would practice today, the running back did not participate.
The Falcons have nothing to play for and Coleman is likely a goner in free agency, so it is conceivable they just roll with Brian Hill to see if his eight carry, 115-yard outburst last week was a fluke. If he gets the nod, Hill would be a volume-based RB2.
Adam Schefter is reporting the Texans fear RB Lamar Miller suffered a torn ACL in Saturday’s preseason game against the Cowboys.
Miller suffered a nasty-looking hit from Maliek Collins. If this is the case, Miller would be lost for the season, Duke Johnson may finally get his opportunity and undrafted free agent Damarea Crockett, who has been garnering buzz, also moves up in the depth chart. An unfortunate event for the Texans, putting more pressure on DeShaun Watson. Duke Johnson should see a major increase in PPR value.
Colts QB Andrew Luck has unexpectedly decided to retire from the NFL and has a press conference set for Sunday to officially announce his decision.
This was absolutely out of nowhere and one of those stories that you almost have to double check that it’s actually Schefter tweeting the news. But it is true. Schefter says Luck has already met with owner Jim Irsay regarding his decision. Luck was not expected to play Week 1, and there was no indication of when he would return. But as it turns out, there will be no return as Schefter reports Luck, 29 years of age, has become mentally worn down. We wish Luck all the best in his retirement. Jacoby Brissett is now officially the starting quarterback in Indianapolis and all other fantasy options for the Colts certainly get bumped down a notch or two.
Texans RB Lamar Miller was carted off the field during Saturday’s preseason game against the Cowboys with a left knee injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Miller’s knee was hit by the helmet of Maliek Collins on a stretch play and Miller went down immediately. No word yet on the severity of the injury but things do not look good for Miller. This now creates a major opportunity for Duke Johnson, whom the Texans just acquired from the Browns earlier this month. The career rushing leader at the University of Miami, Johnson is fully capable of seizing a three-down role for the Texans. Without an update to Miller's injury, Johnson is worthy of a fifth round pick if drafting this weekend. Here’s to a quick recovery for Miller.
