Cardinals rookie WR John Brown is very real. One Arizona evaluator says he’s gonna be special. Can run routes like a pro too.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said tests taken Monday, July 28, revealed blood in the hamstring.

And there's the report on the severity of the injury we've been waiting for. Depending on how long this takes Beckham to work through, his role both in the offense and on special teams could diminish from where it is currently expected to be.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) is outperforming rookie QB Johnny Manziel so far in camp, and the starting quarterback job has been Hoyer's job to lose.

If Hoyer wasn't outplaying Manziel, then we'd have something to report...and worry about. As it is, Hoyer will open the season as the starting quarterback and unless he completely falls apart, should remains so all season. The club could make a change midway through the year if things have just gotten away from them, but only if it's really going to benefit Manziel's development.

Dwight Freeney (quadriceps) has been impressive in camp thus far, according to a team source.

Freeney missed most of last season after having surgery to repair a torn quad, so he's certainly had a significant amount of time to heal. Consider him a solid IDP play this season, but don't expect the same guy who once regularly posted double-digit sacks.

Giants' Odell Beckham met with head coach Tom Coughlin Tuesday to discuss his injury and assure him he wants to be out there practicing.

Beckham is supposed to be a big part of the return game this year, so as much as he wants to be back, Coughlin wants him practicing just as much. They just have to be careful not to push too hard too soon as this is something that could linger all season.

When Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson had surgery March 10 to repair a stress fracture, doctors inserted a permanent screw "to aid the healing process, which speaks to the magnitude of the procedure," reports the Boston Herald.

Everyone understands the magnitude of Dobson's injury and surgery. The only issue people had was the fact that he delayed the surgery two months and could have been way ahead of where he is in his recovery right now. He is currently on the PUP list and there is no timetable for his return.

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis has returned three times from torn anterior cruciate ligaments, earning a Pro Bowl berth in 2013, and has used his experience to coax injured Panthers to stay focused.

If only there were more in the NFL who had the heart and tenacity of Davis. We commend him for his work ethic and we laud him for his ability to endure. Hopefully some of it will rub off on his teammates, particularly the ones used in fantasy leagues.

A major-league source told MLBDailyDish.com that there is "still a good chance" the Padres trade reliever Joaquin Benoit.

As expected, Benoit is drawing interest from a number of contenders, but to fill a set-up role, obviously. Should they deal him, look for Dale Thayer or Alex Torres to start getting saves work.
