Ricky Seals-Jones Carted Off Practice Field

Thursday, August 17, 8:43 PM

Indianapolis Colts tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (foot) was carted off the field during practice on Thursday. The 28-year-old appears to have suffered a right foot injury, but the severity of the injury is unknown right now. Seals-Jones signed with the Colts earlier this month and is fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster. He didn't play at all last season and was released with an injury settlement before the beginning of the 2022 campaign. The team should give an update on his status shortly.

Raiders To Feature Two-Tight End Sets With Brock Bowers, Michael Mayer

Monday, July 8, 2:25 PM

The Athletic's Vic Tafur writes that it's the Las Vegas Raiders' plan to use more two-tight end sets this year involving rookie first-rounder Brock Bowers and Michael Mayer, who was a second-round selection in 2023. In addition, the Raiders will line up Bowers out wide and behind the quarterback at times to give the defense unique looks. It's not that the Raiders suddenly don't like Mayer now after drafting Bowers in the first round, but they just thought they couldn't pass up on Bowers' explosiveness and even turned down a team trying to trade up for him. While Mayer will still have a role in the offense in his second NFL season, he's going to take a back seat to Bowers in 2024 and will go undrafted in standard 12-team fantasy leagues this fall. Bowers, meanwhile has the potential for a Sam LaPorta-like season in his rookie campaign.
