Dale Earnhardt Jr., on his weekly The Dale Jr. Download, said "I miss the people more than the driving" while sitting out with concussion-type symptoms such as balance issues and nausea. He said he has been working on the physical and mental exercises for 2-2.5 hours a day. "This process is going to take a little bit longer. ... With my history, I don't need to get cute (in returning)," said Earnhardt, who indicated he will see doctors soon to make a determination about Watkins Glen next week. He said it must have been a challenge for Jeff Gordon because of the changes to the cars since Gordon last drove them. On Kyle Busch's win: "You have to hand it to Gibbs.

Texans left tackle Duane Brown and defensive end JJ Watt will both begin training camp on the active/physically unable to perform list. They still count against the roster at this point and this has no bearing on their availability for the season, yet. The active/PUP list simply gives the Texans the option to have the players start the season on PUP if necessary. If that happens, they would miss at least six games, but the team has made no such commitment yet.

North Carolina has to play seven teams with first-year head coaches, including the opener against Georgia. Coach Larry Fedora said his staff watched six different schools to prepare for what Kirby Smart might bring to the Bulldogs. "It's chaos," Fedora said. "You're breaking down Pitt, you're breaking down Tennessee, you're breaking down Arkansas -- not including Virginia Tech for special teams. My comments to our guys: we may not see any of this, so when we get in this game, you have to be ready to change. You have to be able to adapt."
