      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Taylor only played in nine snaps Monday night, and it's unclear whether that's a product of a cautious post-injury approach, or if it's due to his long-shot chances of making the roster. Nevertheless, he's healthy enough to play so expect to see him in upcoming preseason games.

      Read Analysis

      Per John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Strong will appeal a one-game suspension for his arrest on a marijuana possession charge.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Strong was arrested during a traffic stop in Scottsdale, Ari. on Feb. 28, 2016. Pending league acknowledgement of the suspension, his status will remain in limbo. In any case, the development is a blow to a receiving corps without Will Fuller until at least midseason due to a broken collarbone, as well as DeAndre Hopkins' lingering hand injury and Braxton Miller's ankle sprain.
