Saints | PK job is Shayne Graham's to lose?

Buccaneers | Lawrence Tynes sits for preseason opener

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 11:09:27 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Lawrence Tynes (toe) did not play in the preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 8. PK Derek Dimke kicked in the veteran's absence.

Fantasy Tip: Greg Schiano said earlier in training camp that Dimke would be given a chance to compete with Tynes, and the fact the veteran is sidelined with an injury isn't great for his chances. Still, you have to give the veteran the edge for the job until told otherwise by the head coach.
