Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones got his knee examined but is fine and good to go vs. Bucs Thursday night.
It's a short week for the Falcons so this is good news. Jones was banged up early in the game and didn't get a lot of targets in the second half. So, he is coming off an unimpressive 3-29-0 line against the Packers in what ended up being a shootout.
Benkert was utilized as the backup in 2021 over Jordan Love, so the decision to let Benkert find a new home is a boon for Love. Any improvement from Love is great for the Packers in the event Aaron Rodgers misses time.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh addressed reporters Thursday, and among the topics were the rehabs of RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. Harbaugh told reporters it is too soon to tell if they will be ready for training camp, and therefore the season.
The Ravens have run with a loaded backfield for a while and the statuses of Dobbins and Edwards are leans to why Mike Davis was added to the RB room. Rookie Tyler Badie is also going to be in the mix early on as a Ravens draftee. Justice Hill will be a member of the Ravens forever at this point.
