HOUSTON -- The running back position for the New Orleans Saints appears loaded.With veterans Mark Ingram, C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower anchoring the effort and rookie Daniel Lasco proving himself in camp, the Saints have options behind quarterback Drew Brees.I think we have a special group of guys, a real talented room, Ingram said. We push each other to be better and from the first guy to last guy everybody can go somewhere and play in this league and be a contributor in this league. A lot of competition but its good competition brings out the best in everybody.Ingram has dealt with injuries his entire career, playing the full schedule just once in 2012, and watching his production dip at times. Two years ago, he rushed for 964 yards and nine touchdowns and added 29 receptions for 145 yards. Its a level he would like to see again.Thats what I want to be known for is a guy who can go in there and do everything, Ingram said. Whether its running the ball, lining up in the slot, lining up wide, running routes from the backfield, picking up pass protection, thats something I pride myself on.A position for the Saints that has been depleted by injuries in training camp has been the cornerbacks.Keenan Lewis continues to be held out of practice, Devin Breaux limped off the field after a play and then was carted off in the middle of Thursdays practice. Getting reps for the young guys like P.J. Williams, Brian Dixon and DeVante Harris is helpful to their progress, Saints coach Sean Payton said.Were having a chance to train and develop these guys against some pretty good receivers, he said. I think the opportunity to see a different look and another team just like last week is a positive one.For the Texans, quarterback Brock Osweiler and the entire offensive unit got a chance for a second straight week to practice against another team. Houston hosts the Saints in a preseason game on Saturday night.The best part is the constant, unscouted looks youre seeing, Osweiler said. So it really tests your knowledge of your offensive system.During Thursdays practice, DeAndre Hopkins made some highlight reel catches, including one over Breaux.Playing a defense that gets up in your face helps them get better, Hopkins said, and he has seen the offense improve.Its definitely a lot better from where we started in the spring, he said. A lot of guys are putting more time in in the film room and on their own just trying to master this offense.Osweiler, who joined the team in the offseason, said the offense will take time to master.I think anytime we step onto the field were making progress as an offensive unit, he said. This is a long process, especially when you run an expansive offense like we do here. Its going to take time to perfect it but were working and striving every single day for perfection.Texans coach Bill OBrien said the passing game needs to continue to improve but does like what he sees from Osweiler.Hes done a nice job in two-minute drills, hes had some good team periods, he said. Its very difficult to come in here as a quarterback, both sides, and not really gameplan, not really know what youre going to see and have to react to it on the fly. I think Brocks done a good job of that. http://www.nflcardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Chad-Williams-Jersey/ .

Kell Brook has defended trainer Dominic Ingle amid criticism of his decision to throw in the towel during his WBC and IBF middleweight title defeat by Gennady Golovkin.With Brook under intense pressure from the champions latest assault, already appearing tired and his right eye cut and swollen, Ingle ended the fight to conclude a resilient performance.The challenger was taken to hospital with a broken eye socket before being released in the early hours of Sunday morning. He is to be operated on in the coming week, before preparing for an eventual return to the ring at light-middleweight.I came back after the second round and said I cant see out of the right eye, Dominic, Brook, 30, told Sky Sports. I was talking to him, and he knows me, he saw me growing up as a kid.Hes like a father figure. It was the right decision and I can fight another day. I was getting caught, and getting caught. It could have ended up seriously bad.As much as the loss has been gutting and upsetting, Im excited and happy the fans have seen a great battle against a great fighter, a throwback fighter.Im looking forward to getting straight back in the top boys. Ive had a taste of this magnitude of fight and I want this again. Ill be back and Ill be twice as strong and twice as fast.Brook had been the significant underdog having stepped up from welterweight against one of the worlds leading and most destructive fighters.dddddddddddd Few observers believed him capable of winning, but his promoter Eddie Hearn regardless maintained fighting Golovkin was the right thing to do.Peter Nelson [executive president of American television network HBO] has already come up to me and said: We need to talk about Kell Brook, said Hearn. That was part of the plan: to broaden the brand. So actually, it was a very smart move.Brooks domestic rival Amir Khan last fought at 155lbs when losing to Mexicos Saul Alvarez in May but is expected to return at welterweight in 2017.The weight Brook gained to challenge Golovkin, combined with his previous, intense struggles to make the 147lb limit means he is likely incapable of returning there. Hearn, however, again spoke of his desire to match the two together.As a promoter there is nothing better in a build-up than two fighters who dont particularly like each other, the 37-year-old said.For now its about getting that eye socket tidied up, having some rest and hell probably be returning in the spring, summer next year.
