WitP: Samson, Pisa, Mauia, Bess, Libre

The AP has an update on Samson Satele's injury.
Center Samson Satele won't play against the 49ers this week, either. Satele injured his ankle early during Oakland's 32-17 win over Chicago last Saturday. The team initially thought Satele might require surgery but Cable said that doesn't appear to be the case now.

"It does not look to be serious but we will not force the issue there," Cable said. "I know I'm going to shut him down this week. There's a chance he could be ready to go but I'm just not going to push that. I'm not going to do that."
Pisa Tinoisamoa may now be the Bears' starting strongside linebacker.
The Bears' strong-side linebacker battle might be on hold for a few weeks.

With Nick Roach undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday, Pisa Tinoisamoa has a chance to solidify himself as the Bears' starter at the position.

"I think the competition is still ongoing,'' Tinoisamoa said. "But as a friend, you really don't want to see anyone go under the knife like that. It's not like I'm not competing. We're still trying to win. You can't fall off.''

Roach is expected back Sept. 12 for the season opener against the Lions. The knee gave him problems throughout training camp.
Reagan Mauia is featured in a video on the Arizona Cardinals website. He talks about his life, getting drafted, what he wants to do after football, etc.

David J. Neal of the Miami Herald writes that the Dolphins' undrafted receivers are trying to emulate Davone Bess.
The last ones to leave the machine were Dolphins wide receiver Davone Bess and those who want to be Bess or follow the NFL path to the roster he took in 2008: Julius Pruitt, a member of the 2009 practice squad, and rookie free agents Roberto Wallace and Marlon Moore.
``One of the things that I thought Davone Bess did a great job of when he came in here is he was consistent,'' Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. ``Every single practice, the kid came out here, there was good stamina, from Day One to practice [No.] 40, this guy was still going at the same pace. Mentally, there were really very few breakdowns, so he didn't let the heat or any of those things beat him from a mental toughness standpoint.

``I think the young receivers like Roberto in this situation, that's going to be something that you're going to want to see.''
And some bad news as Daniel Libre was released by the Edmonton Eskimos.
