After being carted away from practice, James Washington is feared to have suffered a Jones fracture in his foot, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. The offseason addition is going through an MRI. The exam confirming these fears would lead to a lengthy absence for Washington, who was set to be a key contributor for the Cowboys — especially early in the season.

LAFAYETTE, La. – Ed Orgeron isn't in the limelight this season, but he was on campus to see the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns first preseason scrimmage Saturday.

Orgeron, LSU's former coach who guided the Tigers to the 2019 national championship, prowled the sidelines inside the Leon Moncla Indoor Practice Facility.

Orgeron stopped and talked with a few of Louisiana-Lafayette's players, including Zi'Yon Hill-Green and Trey Amos.

A Louisiana football spokesperson told The Daily Advertiser that Orgeron wasn't a formal invitee to the scrimmage but could be visiting his son, Parker, who is an offensive analyst working with tight ends on first-year coach Michael Desormeaux's UL staff.

Daniels has made the college football rounds, spending two seasons at USC as well as two at Georgia. He'll be a fifth-year junior for the Mountaineers in 2022, and Brown seems confident that not only can he overcome his history of injuries, but he can live up to his five-star recruiting rating. Daniels was the No.

LSU has since hired former Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly as his successor.

Offseason in review: Carolina Panthers

  Offseason in review: Carolina Panthers The Panthers have one- and two-win seasons on their 21st-century resume, but the franchise has never gone through a stretch like the one it has submitted over the past three years. Prior to 2020, there was only one instance of Carolina finishing consecutive seasons with double-digit losses (2010-11). Entering Matt Rhule‘s third year, the current streak is three. The Panthers’ three straight five-win campaigns has made Rhule’s seat hot and made David Tepper‘s authorization of a seven-year, $60M contract look shortsighted. © Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore.

Orgeron has spent much of the past year visiting with a number of college football and NFL teams. In recent weeks, he has been spotted at Notre Dame and Miami.
