NFL Training Camp Roundup for August 8th

Head Coach Mike Smith is anxious to see the offensive line in game competition and says not to put much stock in depth charts. This unit is a huge area of concern for the Falcons and changes may occur.

More news on Ben Roethlisberger, although this time not direct. The Steelers announced that two rookies will start on the offensive line in Thursday’s preseason opener against the Eagles. David DeCastro, the team’s first-round pick, will start at right guard. Mike Adams, a second-rounder, will start at left tackle.
RB Roy Helu believes he has a chance to compete for the starting tailback slot. While anointed starter Tim Hightower recovers from knee surgery, Helu and Evan Royster will get an even number of carries in Thursday’s game at Buffalo.
