Published

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is squashing any doubts about his playing status for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Hopkins is saying that he is  “1,000 percent” ready to suit up for the regular season opener on Sunday.

“I catch on my thumb every day, so no need for me to go out there and keep going to the nagging injury,” Hopkins said (h/t ESPN).

“Just let it heal. And that’s what they did.”

Hopkins has to be pretty pumped up to play especially since he signed a five-year, $81 million contract extension last week to remain with the Texans.

According to Hopkins, he’ll be ready to play on Sunday.

Broncos’ John Elway Says Team Could Look for New Backup Quarterback

Published

on

Denver Broncos president John Elway isn’t too thrilled with the quarterback depth chart, despite the recent promotion of Chad Kelly to the #2 spot behind starter Case Keenum, and could be in the market for a new backup signal caller.

“I’m not going to tell you we’re definitely going to stand pat, but I’m not telling you we’re going (in) that direction, either,” Elway said, during an appearance on 103.5 The Fox (h/t Associated Press).

Kelly’s recent performance, in which he threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, has seen him leapfrog former 2016 1st round pick Paxton Lynch on the depth chart.

“We’ve got to have confidence that that guy that’s going to be the backup can play and win football games,” Elway said. “And so that’s why we’re still in that process of trying to see if we’ve got that guy behind Case.

“Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night—we’ll see how he does this week—but if something were to happen to Case, can he come in and continue to win football games for us?” Elway said. “That’s the big part of the evaluation process and that’s still going on.”

The Miami Dolphins are not willing to trade wide receiver DeVante Parker and the disappointing former 1st round pick is not on the trade block, according to the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero.1

The Dolphins feel that Parker, who is currently out with a broken finger, has had a solid training camp, but reports seem to contradict that assessment and are still of the the belief that Parker can turn into the player they thought he was going to be when they drafted him in the first round a few years ago.

Parker tallied 57 catches for 670 yards and one touchdown last season and is expected to be back in time for the Dolphins’ season opener.

The New York Jets are willing to trade quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for the right price, according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta.

Despite the willingness, there are members of the Jets front office that aren’t exactly sold on the idea of moving Bridgewater, who is projected to the be the backup to either rookie signal caller Sam Darnold and veteran Josh McCown.

Bridgewater doesn’t seem to fit in the long term plans for the team, especially because he is currently operating on a one-year deal.
