Titans fullback Jalston Fowler was injured on a kickoff return in the third quarter and needed to be helped to the bench. A cart came out to help him, but he chose to get to the locker room under his own power. Losing him would be a blow for a team that wants to run downhill with Henry, but the Titans broadcast said it’s just a thigh bruise.
On just five carries, he’s racked up 70 yards and a touchdown.
The Panthers kicked a game-tying field goal with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter. Everybody knows overtime in preseason is to be avoided at all costs. Panthers. Please.
Tennessee linebacker Aaron Wallace saved the day with a sack in the final two minutes.
Watson started getting into a groove, driving the Texans down into the red zone. Unfortunately, the Texans couldn’t find the end zone and the offensive line routinely gave up pressure, forcing Watson into constant scrambles and throwing the ball away. A 25-yard field goal cut the Panthers’ lead to seven.
Things went from bad to worse for the Buy Cheap Jerseys Online Texans when tight end Evan Baylis coughed up the ball deep in Panthers territory. Graham Gano hit the 45-yard field goal to put his team up 10 points.
The second game will see the Bucs playing the Bengals, who were snakebitten by injuries last season. Cincinnati revamped its offense with the additions of rookies Joe Mixon and John Ross, although Ross will probably sit this one out after missing the offseason program with shoulder surgery. Mixon will be aiming to beat out Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard for the starting RB job. A.J. Green might also be limited after a torn hamstring ended his 2016 season early. The Bucs don’t have any big injury concerns at the moment, though the backfield is one to watch with Doug Martin suspended for the first three games.
