The NFL’s preseason is officially underway after last Thursday’s Hall of Fame Game, and this year we will see a record seven former UTSA athletes taking the field.
UTSA’s longest-tenured NFL’er Teddy Williams was set to start the season with the New York Giants, but today asked for his release from the team for personal reasons, but still hopes to play at some point this season.
#Giants CB Teddy Williams, who’s been away from the team for a few days to deal with a family health issue, asked for his release to keep dealing with the issue, source says. Williams expects to play in ‘18 and hopes it’s for NYG. Doesn’t want to tie up a roster spot in meantime.

In another bit of bad news, we may not get to see first-rounder Marcus Davenport right away, as he has been sitting out of practice with an undisclosed injury since last Monday. We have to assume this isn’t too severe, since he hasn’t been placed on Injured Reserve, but the Saints haven’t given any timetable for his return as of yet.
I don't see #Saints starting RG Larry Warford out here. Also don't see rookie DE Marcus Davenport, who hasn't practiced since suffering an undisclosed injury last Monday. If my math is correct, this would be a fifth consecutive missed practice for the Saints' first-round pick.
