NFL preseason Week 1: Undrafted free agents look great … but it's just one game

  NFL preseason Week 1: Undrafted free agents look great … but it's just one game Jaguars receiver Keelan Cole and Dolphins wideout Damore'ea Stringfellow looked great on sensational plays Thursday night.The NFL preseason is about guys like Keelan Cole. The Jaguars rookie wide receiver, an undrafted free agent out of Kentucky Wesleyan, is fighting for a roster spot in Jacksonville. He's not currently listed in the top six on the Jags' WR depth chart, but he might have helped his chances in the Jags' preseason opener against the Patriots. Cole hauled in a 97-yard TD pass from Chad Henne, turning on the afterburners for the final 60 yards.

Dupre hit the ground and remained on his back for several minutes as medical staff carefully treated him. Players from both teams took a knee and the Lambeau Field crowd was hushed as Dupre underwent treatment.

The crowd cheered as Dupre gave a thumbs up and appeared to make a praying hand motion as he left the field.

Dupre, a seventh-round pick out of LSU, has had a good camp for the Packers thus far. He caught two passes for 16 yards against the Eagles.
