I'll be back at practice Thursday. One of our intrepid Herald interns was out at FIU Stadium this morning while we made a family trip to the pediatrician for the annual checkup.
Preseason football qualifies as the TV dinner of professional sports. That said, FIU followers might want to munch some NFL Network, which eventually shows every preseason game. A couple of former Panthers need to earn roster spots.
Former safety Johnathan Cyprien's got a spot with the Jaguars. Unless there's an arrest involved for something like domestic violence, nobody's cutting loose a second round pick before his rookie season.
While a hamstring has kept Cyprien sidelined throughout Jacksonville's camp, up at Giants camp, former cornerback Junior Mertile's doing what undrafted rookies need to do to make it past the first round of unemployment. At least, that's according to this Newark Star-Ledger story. The Giants play Pittsburgh Saturday night.
Out in San Diego, the Chargers official team website talks about former defensive end Tourek Williams and his attempted conversion to outside linebacker. The Chargers play Seattle Thursday night.
