Hawkeyes in the NFL: Bryan Bulaga Out For The Season; Keenan Davis Scores A Touchdown

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

That and other news from former Hawkeyes trying to make it in the League.

GREEN BAY PACKERS. Bryan Bulaga moved to left tackle and was ready to be a big part of the Packer offense this season. In true tough guy fashion, Bulaga went down hard in practice but continued on before finally exiting with an injury. Bulaga tore ligaments in his knee and will miss the entire 2013 season.

Some better news. Mike Daniels is having a nice camp and could see more playing time. He's busy balancing football and life. His strong early-camp has some in Green Bay wondering if he'll prove to be a better player than Jerel Worthy, a defensive tackle drafted two rounds ahead of Daniels.


MIAMI DOLPHINS. The NFL kicked off the preseason with the Hall of Fame Game in Canton,Ohio, last evening. The Miami Dolphins took on the Dallas Cowboys. Marvin McNutt got the start at wide receiver for the Fins as their top two receivers, Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace, are still injured and did not play in the game. McNutt had an early drop on one of the Dolphins' first series. He did not record a catch in the game.

Keenan Davis took advantage of his opportunity getting reps late. He caught three balls for 48 yards including this touchdown:

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS. The Chiefs released their first depth chart and it's not great news for some former Hawkeyes. Ricky Stanzi, in his third year in Kansas City, is fourth on the depth chart at quarterback. Tony Moeaki is sandwiched between five tight ends as third on the depth chart. Greg Castillo is fourth string at corner back.

Moeaki finds himself behind rookie Travis Kelce. Even listed third he still gets plenty of first string reps and can expect his share of targets from the quarterbacks. Moeaki's job doesn't appear to be in danger but for Stanzi and Castillo to make the final roster, they have work to do.

NEW YORK GIANTS. Tyler Sash wants to play at a Pro Bowl level. Sash says this season he can just "go out there and play football." He had a suspension for four games to start 2012.

Brandon Myers has earned a nickname already in New York; the Finisher. Myers hauled in a Eli Manning pass for a 50-yard touchdown in practice.


IF YOU CARE TO LOOK AHEAD TO NEXT YEAR'S DRAFT. CBS Sports talks Iowa Football NFL prospects. C.J. Fiedorowicz is the top prospect on this season's squad. CJF could hear his name called in the late first through third round next draft. Somewhat surprisingly, Anthony Hitchens is the second player CBS lists in this profile piece. Derek Stephens writes that Hitchens "could be a regular contributor on a defense at the next level." James Morris is next on the list. Also, surprisingly, B.J. Lowery doesn't make the list.

THERE'S PLENTY OF MORE PRESEASON NFL FOOTBALL COMING. Brendan Stiles, of Hawkeye Drive, took the time to make a list of game times, match-ups and former Hawkeyes playing in these games. There's also Hard Knocks with the Cincinnati Bengals that begins Tuesday night. Maybe Shaun Prater will make an appearance there.
