2. Stopping McCarty a key for Eagles' D

[“I think this’ll be a good barometer of where we’re at,” Hatcher said. “I think you’ve got a misnomer down in the south that, hey, nobody up north plays football. They got a very good football team.”]


3. Gameday Mayday: GSU Eagles vs. Albany Great Danes

[“We’ve watched a good bit about them (Albany). Whether our players know it or not, we’ve been working in our walk-throughs and all through camp to prepare for that first game of the season,” said head coach Chris Hatcher. “They’re very physical and very sound in what they do and they have a good football team. I’m sure they’re going to come down here ready to play and we will be too.”]


4. Bears-Browns exercise in boredom

[One minute Adrian Peterson is wondering what he has done to deserve being the fourth running back on the depth chart, next minute he's looking at backing up Matt Forte in the opener. But you suspect that not much else was determined solely based on this night except that the preseason is four games too long.]


5. Bears’ Jones leaves with ankle injury

[If Jones is out, Garrett Wolfe and Adrian Peterson would back up Matt Forte. “We’ll wait and see where we are, but we have three solid guys we feel really good about back there,” offensive coordinator Ron Turner said. Wolfe had 19 yards on four carries and Peterson 39 yards on 12 carries Thursday.]


6. Aside from injury to Kevin Jones, Chicago Bears escape unscathed

[Immediately, the ramifications likely affect fourth running back Adrian Peterson, who has been behind Garrett Wolfe. How can the Bears cut him now, with Jones' health a question mark?]


7. The dangers of preseason game No. 4

[It never bodes well when a player cannot leave the field under his own power, and Jones appeared in pain. That would seem to solidify the roster status of Adrian Peterson, who was fighting for a spot as the fourth running back.]


8. Savannah's Riley scores in Ravens' win over Falcons

[Savannah's Eron Riley, an undrafted rookie out of Duke trying to make the Ravens' roster, caught two passes, including a 15-yard touchdown reception, for 62 yards. Teammate Jayson Foster, the former Georgia Southern quarterback and receiver, caught two passes for 17 yards.]


9. Falcons reserves get their chance against Ravens

[Backup tight end Keith Zinger caught a couple of passes and laid a nice hit of Baltimore punt returner Jayson Foster.]


10. Battling for job, Wilson has respectable outing

[Jayson Foster, a former Georgia Southern and Cherokee High standout, caught a pass for a 7-yard gain in the first half for the Ravens. He has also been in camp with Miami, Denver and Pittsburgh.]


11. Q&A With b’s Matt Vensel

[As for lesser names, rookie WR Jayson Foster looks like a guy with big-play capabilities, but he’s on the outside looking in when it comes to the roster situation.]


12. Fort Wayne wins 90th game

[Right-handed starter Jerry Sullivan (4-3, 4.16 ERA) gave up four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings as the Emeralds lost 7-5 to Salem-Keizer in Eugene. Catcher Griffin Benedict was 2-for-4 with an RBI.]


13. Camden Riversharks Defeat Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, 4-3

[With a runner in scoring position, shortstop Bryant Nelson lined a double to left, scoring Chris Walker and giving Camden a 1-0 lead.]


14. SeaWolves fall into third place with loss

[Fermaint moved to second on a sacrifice bunt before Sens shortstop Jemel Spearman singled to center, sending Fermaint to third. After Spearman was thrown out at second attempting to steal for the second out, Jensen walked center fielder Francisco Plasencia.]
