    I wonder if Peerman is done and he ends up coaching.

    IMO, specialist/returner was one of his primary slots the second he was drafted. The fact that John Ross apparently can't catch a kick-off probably doesn't hurt him in that regard.

    He's hella fast and he did some returning at Houston. He's not a little guy and he's got the running instincts.

    Jabril Peppers surprised the Browns the same way. It's not that they can't...it's they can't be trusted enough.

    Per Wilson, Peerman's roster spot is his for the taking, but even more than that...his presence could create so many opportunities at the bottom of the roster. Fans of Driskel, Core, and Tra take notice.

    #Bengals rookie tight end Mason Schreck suffered an MCL injury Sunday. Will be out for awhile & impact roster decisions at end of the week.

    I'd be surprised if they didn't ice him for the year. Young guy from a lower tier program, could use a redshirt year anyway. Cethan Carter might get a PS spot. He's looked solid as a blocker and not useless as a receiver.

    Right. Likely won't see Wilson in the 46 initially but definitely could later in the year on STs as he gets more practice reps.

    I could see Driskill making it because he can play STs. A big guy who can run, and a guy who could possibly develop as your "solid number 2" (in a good way, not as in a POS) post-AJ McC.

    Even though Core missed out on a TD that he should have had, I still think he can be very useful as a ST guy. Carson - not sure on STs although they've had him in there some, but he's looked solid (and improved) as a runner. I didn't re-watch the game but it looked like he was part of the mess-up on the Huber sleight of hand "punt." Since both Rex and Peerman are gone, wonder who will be the punt protector? Iloka has done it some... maybe he's the heir-apparent.

    I could see Driskel as an emergency TE. Especially now with Schreck hurt.

    Sounds like Uzomah is only a few weeks away so assuming they carry him on the 53, you've still got Eifert, Kroft and Hewitt (also FB) so I'm guessing they're ok at TE.

    As long as you don't ask him to block.
