49ers' Richard Sherman (Achilles) expects to be for training camp
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman expects to be ready for training camp, reports ESPN's Josina Anderson.
Sherman told Anderson that he jogged on the field for the first time on Wednesday and said his Achilles "felt great." He added, "I'll be ready for training camp, but (the team) is going to be overly cautious either way." There's the possibility that the veteran is held out of all of preseason, but his progress is encouraging for a full season in his first with San Francisco.
Last season in Seattle, Sherman tallied 25 tackles, 7 passes defensed and 2 interceptions in 9 games. Pro Football Focus graded him as the 33rd-best corner in 2018.
Bucs' OC: Chris Godwin has earned right to start
According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken said wide receiver Chris Godwin has earned the right to be a starter.
So far, the second-year Godwin has garnered a good deal of praise from the second-year OC. While the team will surely try to get him on the field more, it's unlikely that Godwin takes over the second wideout role from DeSean Jackson, meaning he'd take more of a third receiver spot from Adam Humphries.
Last season, Godwin turned 55 targets into 34 catches, 525 yards and 1 touchdown.
Jets' Robby Anderson has felony charges dropped
Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson had his felony charges for resisting arrest with violence dropped on Wednesday.
The charges stemmed from an incident that took place in Florida back in 2017. Anderson still has the issue from this year to deal with, so he's not off the hook yet. Either way, he'll more than likely start this season off with a multi-game suspension.
This past season, Anderson led the Jets with 63 catches, 941 yards and 7 touchdowns on 114 targets.
Nagy: Bears' Allen Robinson (knee) 'ahead of the game' in rehab
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said wide receiver Allen Robinson is "ahead of the game" in his rehab from a torn left ACL.
The team feels great about where Robinson's at in his recovery, but they've added that they won't be rushing him back to the field. Nagy said, "He's been doing great in meetings. He's answering every question in the meetings. He's out here focused, doing everything that we want him to do." It sounds like he'll be ready for training camp if all goes as planned.
Robinson suffered the season-ending injury in Week 1 of last season, but the two years prior he totaled 153 catches, 2,283 yards and 20 touchdowns on 302 targets.
Cardinals' David Johnson says goal remains 1,000/1,000 season
According to NFL Network's Will Selva, Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson said, "My goal is still 1,000 rushing, 1,000 receiving [yards]."
In an appearance on Good Morning Football, Johnson said that it feels great to be back working with the team and that his surgically repaired wrist "feels great." He had the same goal a year ago, but his season was cut very short due to injury. Back to full health, totaling 1,000 yards through the air and on the ground is not out of the question.
In the 2016-17 season, Johnson rushed for 1,239 yards and turned 80 catches into another 879 yards receiving. Only two other backs -- Marshall Faulk and Roger Craig -- have ever put together a 1,000/1,000 season.
J.J. Watt (knee) expected to be at 'full strength' for Texans in 2018
Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt (knee) is expected to "be at full strength," head coach Bill O'Brien said on Good Morning America.
"I would never bet against J.J Watt," O'Brien said. "He's going to be back, he's going to be at full strength, and he's going to help us win a lot of games." Watt has been limited to just eight games over the last two seasons due to a back injury in 2016 and a left tibial plateau fracture in 2017.
Watt recorded 15 tackles (11 solo) with 2 pass deflections in five games last season.
