Falcons still unsettled at nickel corner
by R.J. White |

The Falcons have yet to settle on a winner of the competition for nickel cornerback duties, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"I think we still have a lot of decisions to make in terms of who is going to be our nickel," head coach Mike Smith said. "We are going to rotate it a little bit differently than what we did in the first (exhibition) games. This is Arenas' chance to get his reps in there. Then we’ll make a decision going into the fourth preseason game on who is going to be our starter at nickel."

Robert McClain, Josh Wilson and Javier Arenas are competing for the job.

Redskins place Adam Carriker, Josh Wilson on PUP list -- but not Robert Griffin III
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Redskins placed two players -- defensive end Adam Carriker and cornerback Josh Wilson -- on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Thursday. But they did not place quarterback Robert Griffin III on the list despite tearing multiple ligaments in his knee in January. 

Griffin expects to participate in much of the team's training camp and was under center during drills on Thursday. The only area of work he doesn't think he'll participate fully in is team 11-on-11 drills, and he doesn't think he'll play any preseason games either as he finishes his rehabilitation from his knee surgery. 

Carriker is still recovering from a torn quad muscle while Wilson is working his way back from a torn labrum.
