Talented Kick Returner Out Until Week 6
One of the bright spots last year for the Houston Texans was rookie kick returner/wide receiver Jerome Mathis. After having surgery for a stress fracture in his left foot, Mathis will be out until about Week 5 or Week 6 of the regular season.

"That's a big blow, but it's part of the game," said Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. "You can't feel sorry for yourself. You just have to have somebody else step up and go to work."

If the Texans had selected Reggie Bush, he would probably have filled Mathis' shoes.

Cedric Benson Becoming Starter?
Chicago Bears second-year running back Cedric Benson ran with the first-team while Thomas Jones ran with the second-team, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. Lovie Smith, the Bears head coach, is penalizing Jones for missing the team's minicamp back in April. Benson's value is rising as of late, and he could even be named the starter.

Mike Williams Punished
Detroit Lions wide receiver Mike Williams has been dismissed from the final two days of the team's minicamp, reports Mlive.

"I excused him on a team issue. I'm going to leave it at those words," said Lions head coach Rod Marinelli.

It's believed that Williams may have been late for another team meeting.
