**Preseason News Update (8/31/15) **

 

Week Three of the NFL preseason is in the books. Teams have to trim their rosters down to 75 players by tomorrow. By Saturday, teams must be down to their final 53 man rosters. The day after teams can form a 10-player practice squad. Meaning, over the next five days, 864 players will either be unemployed or on an injury list.

 

College Football gets started until Thursday and DFD is ready. Check in later this week for a list of all the games we will be watching on Labor Day weekend.

 

A big FCS game happened on Saturday. Montana and North Dakota State put on a show and DFD watched all of it. Read about it at QUICK DRAFT DISH!

 

The Week Three Preseason Rookie of the Week is: Lions RB Zach Zenner

**Preseason News Update (8/25/15) **

Week Two of the NFL preseason is in the books. The big story around the NFL right now is injuries. Since the beginning of rookie camps in May, at least 23 players have torn their ACL's. This is not counting players lost to other injuries for the season. I do not know what the solution to this problem is, but it is devastating to a lot of teams.

 

While most of college football does not get started until September 3rd, a big FCS game happens on Saturday. Montana and North Dakota State will hook it up and DFD will be watching. Look for a Quick Draft Dish write-up early next week.

 

The Week Two Preseason Rookie of the Week is: Jets DT Leonard Williams
