AFC East links: Ocho, Albert rework deals
By ESPN.com staff
Receiver Lee Evans is trying to ignore rumors that the team might trade him. Evans said he is happy in Buffalo and wants to stay with the team, but anything involving a trade is "out of [his] control."
Receiver Roscoe Parrish injured his leg in practice Wednesday night was ruled out of the team's first preseason game against Chicago.
After a portion of a team practice ended up onYouTube, the team is asking fans to not post practice videos online.
Reggie Bush is unlikely to return punts for the Dolphins -- at least for now. Bush isn’t listed among the three punt returners on the team's initial depth chart, but coach Tony Sparano said Bush "may do it at some point down the road."
New England Patriots
Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth have restructured their contracts, presenting low-risk, high-reward scenarios for the team, according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.
Reiss counts off the main things he'll be looking for in the Patriots' preseason opener against the Jaguars.
New York Jets
Former defensive lineman Sean Gilbert, who just a year ago played a prominent role is Darrelle Revis' holdout -- is serving as a Jets coaching intern.
All eyes will be on wideout Plaxico Burress at practice Thursday, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. "If Burress doesn't practice Thursday, following a day of rest, we'll know the ankle injury is more serious than the Jets are letting on."
