    News & Notes

    From ESPN

    • In his debut, Packers rookie MLB A.J. Hawk failed to impress. Our sources in Green Bay described him as virtually invisible in the Week 1 loss to Chicago, with the exception of a couple of meaningless blitzes late in the game. We hear that he took on blockers sufficiently at times but got blown up on others. Hawk did contribute seven tackles in Week 2.

    • We're told there is definite room for improvement on the right side of the Vikings' offensive line, manned by ORG Artis Hicks and ORT Marcus Johnson. A second-round pick in last year's draft, Johnson struggles and plays without confidence at times, and the team is waiting for him to grow into his athleticism.

    • The Vikings clearly want RB Chester Taylor to carry the load, but we hear he would not have seen a career-high 31 carries in Week 1 if backup Mewelde Moore's knee had been 100 percent healthy.

    • At least one Steelers observer was surprised by the team's decision to cut QB Omar Jacobs from the practice squad, given that Jacobs had flashed some ability, if not the greatest handle on the Steelers' offense, in the preseason.
