NFL preseason update: Where to find state players this weekend
By Anthony Slater – firstname.lastname@example.org - @anthonyVslater
And many of those former players are still in the early stages of their career, expected to be play prominent roles on their respective teams.
So, throughout another interesting football season, I’m going to be constantly updating the ongoings of these now legendary Sooners and Cowboys.
Here’s a look at where you can find some of the recent big names in Preseason Week 3, which starts tonight:
WR Justin Blackmon (OSU) – Jacksonville Jaguars
Opponent: at Baltimore – 6:30 p.m.
Preseason stats: 4 catches for 48 yards and 1 touchdown
Quick look: The successful debut is behind Blackmon. Now it’s time to develop consistent chemistry with second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbart, who looked surprisingly comfortable last week.
TE Jermaine Gresham (OU) – Cincinnati Bengals
Opponent: vs Green Bay – 6 p.m.
Week 1 stats: 2 catches for 44 yards
Quick look: The big tight end (even by NFL standards) snared an Andy Dalton pass last week and tried to take on the entire Atlanta defense. As he battled through three Falcon defenders, his knee awkwardly jammed into the turf, looking like a potential season-ender. Turns out, it was just a minor scare. As a precautionary measure, he won’t play Thursday (and shouldn’t the rest of the preseason), but his natural aggressiveness has to scare the Bengals. It’s great when he’s on the field, but has a tendency to force him off of it.
QB Brandon Weeden (OSU) – Cleveland Browns
Opponent: vs. Philadelphia – 6:30 p.m.
Week 1 stats: 15-29 passing for 180 yards / 0 touchdowns / 1 interception
Quick look: This could be Weeden’s last tune-up before the opener (most teams rest important starters in the final preseason game). And guess what? He’s getting an early look at Philadelphia, the defense he will face in Week 1.
