Could today be the day we hear something on our two unsigned rookies? Hopefully, but it won't be the end of the world if we don't. Justin Pugh told me at minicamp he didn't see any reason why his contract wouldn't be done by camp. Well, camp's almost here and things remain status quo...As for Ryan Nassib, we haven't heard much about his situation, but it's expected we'll know what his contract issues are by the end of this week.
The Denver Broncos are scheduled to play the Giants at MetLife in Week Two and could possibly be without top pass rusher LB Von Miller for the contest. Miller was suspended by the league yesterday for the first four games for violating the league's drug policy. Miller is appealing the ban stating, "I did nothing wrong." Even if he wins his appeal, sources believe the reduction will only be for two games.
Redskins' QB Robert Griffin III has been cleared for practice but is not likely to play in preseason games per Rotoworld:
It's unfortunate we won't get a chance to evaluate Griffin's recovery against a live opponent, but this should not be considered any kind of setback. It's just Mike Shanahan exercising extra caution as he often does with players coming off injury and the Redskins not wanting to subject their franchise player to any unnecessary hits. Dr. James Andrews, who performed Griffin's ACL and LCL repair, has given Griffin clearance
