The NFL preseason can be a little boring and monotonous, the games don’t count, and the quality of play looks more like the USFL. So we need to entertain ourselves, so we will look at what happened during week 2 of this preseason. We will look at the players who did not have the best weeks during week 2 of this NFL preseason.
Gibson seems to be losing his grip on the Commanders top running back position. The former rookie star and standout performed with the second-and third-team units during most of his time in the game. He watched from the sidelines as rookie Brian Robinson Jr ran against the Chiefs. He started in the backfield, then two carries later; he was relegated to kick-return duties.
After Joshua Dobbs demonstrated both an efficient arm and play-extending mobility, the Browns now have 3 QB battling; unfortunately, after a poor effort by former first-round pick Josh Rosen, Rosen may well be the guy on the outside looking in. Is that surprising, though, after what we have seen from Rosen in the past few years as he tried to prove he wasn’t a bust?
Although he is not at fault for getting hurt, the star Saints receiver wants to be back on the field. Two days after missing his second consecutive preseason game, he could not practice because of a hamstring problem. While Chris Olave, a rookie in the first round, continues to climb up the ranks and is now New Orleans’ most probable No. 1 target. The Saints can contend for the playoffs but they need a healthy Michael Thomas to be able to do that.
Just kidding. Or are we? The Cards’ offense became more efficient after Murray took over as the headset in Arizona’s preseason defeat to the Ravens. They even threatened a comeback following an option touchdown run from backup Trace McSorley. Let’s now see if Kliff relinquishes responsibility when it is important. As much as Kyler Murray is being paid, they might as well make him the Head Coach also. By this season’s end, Kingsbury may be looking for a new job!
