Sad news. Bobby Engram lost his 20’year old daughter today to Sickel Cell Anemia. Thoughts and prayers to him and his family.

Ugh. Very sorry to hear that. 20 is way too young.

If you'd have told me a year or two ago that Marcus Allen would probably not make an NFL roster and Troy Apke would I'd have called you crazy. But it looks like that's what's going to happen. In defense of Marcus, unfortunately he's been hurt and hasn't been able to show much. Hopefully he can be named to the practice squad and get another shot. And congrats to Troy, I slammed him as much as anybody but yet here he is, getting drafted and probably making an opening day roster. Good for him.

The Steelers have two DBs named Allen - I thought it was Marcus who made pick at end of game last week but from what I have seen he is getting in 4th QT while Apke is getting early game reps and making some plays. My guess is if Allen gets cut someone will pick him up - Steelers drafted and just brought in a ton of DBs this year.

Cabinda has been showing in Raiders stat line nicely but not sure if it is end of game duty or not - but hey you can't make the team from the bench so he is getting in and making tackles.
Zettl looks like a starter. Nassib 2nd string. Godwin had a TD last week. Hamilton a couple catches. Haley has been getting snaps with the G-Men. Campbell getting snaps with Cards. Gesicki hasn't shown much in stat line but from what I've read Dolphins are happy with him.

Don't know if Barkley will play last pre-season game - from what I've read Giants feel he is ready so they don't see point in risking injury.

There's a pretty in-depth article on PennLive that essentially quotes coaches as saying Allen hasn't been able to do enough for them to keep him.

Cancer sucks and that sounds really bad. Best wishes to him and his fight.
