Last year's league leading rusher and popular top fantasy pick Chris Johnson has only amassed 39 yards on 19 carries in three games thus far in the preseason.

One game after making the highlight tape by ducking his head and slamming into a would-be tackler in a bid for the end zone, Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow played like a pocket passing quarterback last night rather than a battering ram quarterback that earned him game at Florida.

Former Carolina Panthers' quarterback Jake Delhomme has impressed Eric Mangini with his preseason performance, putting up solid numbers for the Cleveland Browns.

"He's pretty close to 80 percent completion [rate], and the way that he runs the offense and gets us into a good play when we're not necessarily in the best situation, that's what I'm looking for out of our quarterback -- to be efficient and also be a really good decision-maker."
Indianapolis Colts defensive captain and former Rutgers' standout Gary Brackett escaped serious injury Thursday night when his teammate Philip Wheeler slammed his helmet into Brackett's right hand. X-rays were negative and a source told the IndyStar.
