Philadelphia Eagles QB Kevin Kolb will play the entire first quarter of the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 13, according to head coach Andy Reid. QB Michael Vick will play the entire second quarter and half of the third quarter while QB Mike Kafka will play the rest of the game.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said he expects the starters to play about one quarter during the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 12, reports Sheldon Mickles, of The Advocate. QB Drew Brees will be given an unspecified number of snaps before he hands over the duties to QB Patrick Ramsey.

QB | Matt Hasselbeck | Seattle Seahawks | Fantasy
Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck has been looking at film from last year and said it seemed the harder he or the team tried, the worse things got, reports Danny O'Neil, of The Seattle Times. Hasselbeck was picked off 17 times, the most in his 11-year career. Head coach Pete Carroll said Hasselbeck was trying too hard last year to make things happen, which caused plenty of problems. In the team's new system, the quarterback position is not expected to be the focal point of the offense. "They don't have to be the whole show," Carroll said of his team's quarterbacks.

QB | Mark Sanchez | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez is doing great in training camp, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "I see he's got such a better grasp of our system -- what he's seeing and what the defense is giving to him," Ryan said. "He's being accurate with the football. Those are the things that I see with Mark."

QB | Mark Brunell | New York Jets | Depth Chart Tidbit
Updating previous reports, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said the team added QB Mark Brunell to be their No. 2 quarterback. "We brought him in to be our number two quarterback. A lot of things can happen, but that was pretty much predetermined when we signed him," Ryan said.

QB | Jay Cutler | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said during a radio interview that he will inevitably throw some interceptions this season but said he can't worry about them, reports ESPNChicago.com. "There are going to be some balls that are picked off," Cutler said. "It's part of the game. But we can't worry about it. Defenses will make adjustments, we have to make them back."


Running Back

RB | P.J. Hill | New Orleans Saints | Depth Chart Tidbit
New Orleans Saints RBs P.J. Hill and Chris Ivory will see extensive playing time in the preseason opener with RB Lynell Hamilton (knee) lost for the season due to a torn ACL, reports Sheldon Mickles, of The Advocate.

RB | Willis McGahee | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
The Baltimore Ravens might be willing to move RB Willis McGahee because of their confidence in RB Jalen Parmele, reports The Baltimore Sun's Jamison Hensley. Baltimore believes Parmele can grow into something more than just a special teams player. Parmele was also drafted by offensive coordinator Cam Cameron when Cameron was the head coach with the Miami Dolphins in 2008. Parmele is No. 3 on the depth chart and a near certainty to make the team.

RB | Steven Jackson | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson (back) said he feels great physically, reports Jim Thomas, of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He has increased his workload during training camp practices, but is not expected to play in the team's first preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings. Jackson said he spent a lot of time during the offseason making sure his back is secure by building up the core muscles. "I didn't want it to be a nagging injury, and I didn't want this to play mind games with me, and feel like I had to be more timid," Jackson said. "My back is fully healed." He is on track to start for the team during Week 1.

RB | Thomas Jones | Kansas City Chiefs | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Kansas City Chiefs RB Thomas Jones was listed as the team's No. 1 running back on their initial depth chart, reports Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star. He has been lining up that way in practices, too, ahead of RB Jamaal Charles. Head coach Todd Haley said he believes that will continue for the foreseeable future, too, but added that he shouldn't be held to the depth chart at this time. He has indicated both backs will see enough work to keep them happy.

RB | Ryan Mathews | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
San Diego Chargers rookie RB Ryan Mathews will see his first NFL action in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 14, against the Chicago Bears, reports Kevin Acee, of The San Diego Union-Tribune. Head coach Norv Turner said he hopes to give Mathews "a good dose" of carries.

RB | Darren McFadden | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) said he is very frustrated with his hamstring injury, reports Vittorio Tafur, of The San Francisco Chronicle. "I feel like I've been having a good camp. It happened. It's just something you have to deal with right now," McFadden said. He said hamstrings can be tricky, so he is going to make sure he doesn't rush back before it is 100 percent recovered.

RB | Jahvid Best | Detroit Lions | Injury, Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
It appears the Detroit Lions are going to give rookie RB Jahvid Best every opportunity to be their No. 1 running back, reports Chris McCosky, of The Detroit News. RB Kevin Smith (knee), however, doesn't appear ready to concede anything. "We'll see how it goes. You'd like to have a go-to guy in the backfield, but you have to have more than one effective runner," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. Best has been quick to pick up the offense, and has done well in terms of pass protection.

RB | Maurice Morris | Detroit Lions | Depth Chart Tidbit
Detroit Lions RB Maurice Morris has been running as the team's No. 3 running back for most of training camp, reports Chris McCosky, of The Detroit News. Running backs coach Sam Gash said Morris is as healthy and strong as he has been in awhile.

RB | Ryan Grant | Green Bay Packers | Fantasy
Green Bay Packers RB Ryan Grant, who has two years remaining on his contract, could be a strong candidate to receive a contract extension, reports Bob McGinn, of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

RB | Tim Hightower | Arizona Cardinals | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals RB Tim Hightower continues to run as the team's No. 1 running back ahead of second-year RB Beanie Wells, reports Kent Somers, of The Arizona Republic. Hightower is everything head coach Ken Whisenhunt wants from his players. "Tim is versatile, he's tough, and he runs well with the ball. And we have a lot more information about Tim in different situations than we do with Beanie. The way we've set things up with our team, Beanie's got to earn that (starting job). Beanie is working hard to try to do that. That's what you want," Whisenhunt said.

RB | Shonn Greene | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets RB Shonn Greene has really impressed head coach Rex Ryan during training camp. "I've been really impressed with Shonn," Ryan said. "He's much better in the pass protection game. He's stepping up. He's facing people up in blitz packages. That's something that's going to be important, obviously if you're the bell cow." Ryan went on to say the team basically has two No. 1 running backs with LaDainian Tomlinson also on roster. "Hopefully, he (Greene) won't have to carry it 30 times a game," Ryan added.

RB | Harvey Unga | Chicago Bears | Injury
