This is the evaluation phase. That’s what Bill Davis called it. Sometimes, he said, the evaluation phase “looks painful, and sometimes it looks promising.”


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The status of Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles remains in question after he missed Sunday night's preseason game in Carolina because of a bruised foot.


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Henry Josey is still a longshot. Just not as long a longshot as he was before Friday night.


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- In a rare moment, Cary Williams had a change of heart.


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Jordan Matthews had a terrible game last Friday against the Bears and a terrific game this time around against the Patriots.

Looked like a different guy.
