WitP: Bess, Ikaika, Brashton, Colt, Veikune

Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post writes that Davone Bess will be Miami's punt returner again this year. Bess had 1 punt return for 10 yards in last night's preseason game vs the Falcons. Also from that article, looks like Ikaika Alama-Francis has been doing well.
Alama-Francis was around the ball all night and is doing a good job in his transition from defensive end to outside linebacker.
He had 5 tackles in last night's game.

Brashton Satele had two tackles vs Washington last night.

Thoughts from the Dark Side doesn't see much playing time for Colt Brennan tonight vs the 49ers, and doesn't have a very optimistic view overall.
I honestly think the chances of Colt Brennan making this team are slim to none and I've thought that since they announced that they signed him. Bottom line is that Brennan missed too much of the offseason to really be a factor. Bruce Gradkowski came back to practice this week and will likely get a majority of the second half playing time in the contest tonight against the San Francisco 49ers as the team tries to decide if there really is a competition for the second string spot between Gradkowski and Kyle Boller.

But, I also see Colt Brennan getting his most extensive NFL playing time during his career in next week's final preseason game at home against Seattle. The starters will most likely be held to a series or two during that game. That will be the deciding factor for Brennan on whether or not they will keep him around as a practice squad player. If you are wondering about him clearing the waiver wire and being eligible for the practice squad for the Raiders, let me just say that I highly doubt many teams are looking for a third string quarterback with very little NFL experience on his resume at this point in the season.
And Jeff Schudel of The News Herald writes that David Veikune is one of several Browns players on the bubble.
This is a big game for players on the bubble. That group includes tight ends Robert Royal and Alex Smith plus linebackers David Veikune and Kaluka Maiava. Running backs James Davis and Chris Jennings are competing for what could be the final spot at running back.
The Browns play the Lions today.
