David Johnson out of practice with undisclosed injury
NFL teams aren’t obliged to offer injury reports during OTAs, so the Cardinals aren’t going to — even when one of their best players is on the sidelines.
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Cardinals running back David Johnson has missed practice time this week with an injury.
But with Jackson’s low floor, he might end up just another name on that embarrassing Cleveland Browns’ quarterback jersey. Is it worth the risk for Cleveland if it means securing the top two non-quarterback prospects in the draft? That’s up to general manager John Dorsey to decide on Thursday.
Symmank spent last summer with the Vikings and appeared in three of their preseason games. He punted nine times for 386 yards with five of the kicks landing inside the 20-yard line. Symmank finished his college days at Texas Tech, where he punted 99 times in two seasons.
The only other punter on the Giants roster is Riley Dixon, who was acquired in a trade with the Broncos shortly after Denver signed Marquette King this offseason. Dixon punted 162 times with a net average of 41.3 yards for Denver over the last two seasons.
In Detroit, the Raptors and Pistons were tied in overtime at 119 with less than 10 seconds left, and DeRozan — who did this near the end of regulation — was racing down the floor with possession. But rather than play hero ball and settle for a low-percentage attempt when he was met in the lane by a swarm of Pistons defenders on his drive to the rim, DeRozan kicked the ball out to a wide-open Fred VanVleet, who drained the shot from 21 feet, giving the Raptors a win. Trust is an essential ingredient for a championship team, and it is decisions such as that by a team’s superstar that help build it.
