No debate: Schaub is Raiders’ man


NAPA, Calif. — Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen couldn’t have been more definitive when asked about his starting quarterback. He looked a visitor in the eyes and without hesitation declared: “It’s Matt.”

To reinforce his point, he bugged his eyes and stared the visitor in the eyes even more intensely before repeating himself:”It’s Matt. Matt’s our quarterback.”

For all the talk about rookie second-round pick Derek Carr mounting a serious challenge for the starting job, Allen is firmly committed to veteran newcomer Matt Schaub.

Buffalo Bills camp report: Day 6


PITTSFORD, N.Y. — A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Buffalo Bills training camp:

The Bills didn’t waste time inserting Marcell Dareus back into the lineup. After passing his conditioning test and being removed from the active/non-football injury list Thursday, Dareus received a healthy dose of reps with the first-team defense in team drills Friday night. He didn’t have any noticeable hiccups, and proved a load to block for the Bills’ offensive line.

Cowboys Camp Report: Day 2


OXNARD, Calif. — A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Dallas Cowboys training camp:

Linebacker Rolando McClain is expected to be at Saturday’s walkthrough after being found guilty of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct from an incident in April 2013. He appealed the decision and was on a plane for California after the trial.

“We’ve got to learn a little more about it, but I don’t think it’s anything that’s going to keep him from playing,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said.

Chargers camp report: Day 2


SAN DIEGO — A daily review of the hot topics coming out of San Diego Chargers training camp:

Play of the day: Edge rusher Dwight Freeney once again showed that he’s close to being fully healthy, blowing by left tackle King Dunlap in a one-on-one pass rush drill. Freeney refused to put a percentage on his recovery he sees live action in exhibition play, but so far the explosiveness he’s shown on a regular basis during practice has been one of the highlights of camp for San Diego head coach Mike McCoy.

Panthers camp report: Day 1


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Thoughts and observations from the Carolina Panthers training camp:

There were a lot of oohs and aahs from the estimated 36,000 that attended Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium when quarterback Cam Newton threw to his new group of receivers. But to say Newton looked sharp in his first full practice since undergoing offseason ankle surgery would be an overstatement. His first pass during team drills was high and sailed through the hands of Tavarres King.

Cam Newton looks rusty but not worried


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cam Newton dropped back, looked to his left and threw a somewhat wobbly pass that sailed high and through the hands of wide receiver Tavarres King.

I mention this because it was Newton’s first pass in team drills since he underwent surgery in March to tighten the ligaments in his left ankle.

But don’t read too much into that as the Carolina Panthers held their first practice of training camp on Friday night with Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium.

49ers camp report: Hunter injured


SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The San Francisco 49ers received their first injury scare of training camp when reserve running back Kendall Hunter went down with an apparent right-knee injury in Friday’s practice.

Hunter was hurt while catching a swing pass. He went down to the grass, and several teammates plus coach Jim Harbaugh quickly attended to him. Hunter was able to walk off on his own power and was escorted to the locker room without a noticeable limp.
