    Josh Rosen wants to play Womens DeSean Jackson Jersey , but the rookie quarterback needs the go-ahead from his head coach before he can suit up and take snaps in the Arizona Cardinals' preseason finale.

    That isn't likely to come until before kickoff Thursday, when Arizona hosts the Denver Broncos.

    Rosen threw sharp passes in practice Tuesday, the thumb injury that kept him out of Sunday's game against Dallas not appearing to bother him. Rosen slammed his thumb into a helmet during practice last week.

    With starting quarterback Sam Bradford not likely to play much, if at all, Rosen might be in store for a couple of series against the Broncos if it's determined he will play.

    "I'm fine now, so nothing's really an issue," Rosen said.

    Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said he thought Rosen threw the ball well.

    "He didn't have a problem as far as taking it underneath the center, the snap http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/leighton-vander-esch-jersey ," Wilks said. "I thought his execution was on point, so it's still up in the air whether I want to play him. I want him to go through the week and see how he feels, and I'll make that decision on game day."

    The issue for Wilks is trying to find a balance between getting the rookie first-round pick more game action and trying to keep Rosen from re-injuring his thumb. After some struggles in no small part due to poor offensive line play in his preseason debut Aug. 11, Rosen looked sharp in the Cardinals' second preseason game at New Orleans.

    He was 10 of 16 for 107 yards and a touchdown while leading three scoring drives.

    Wilks said he would like Rosen to play since he missed a game and therefore an opportunity to see another NFL defensive scheme.

    "As a rookie, the more and more you see different looks, particularly a 3-4 defense, I think it's important because he's going to be able to see that throughout the year," Wilks said.

    Rosen looks ready to be the Cardinals' backup quarterback when the regular season begins even if he doesn't play this week Ziggy Hood Jersey , Wilks said.

    Rosen wants to continue to improve and get more comfortable.

    "Just continue to feel the pocket, get behind center, call a cadence and call plays," Rosen said.

    NOTE: Wilks said roster spot battles continue, specifically citing wide receiver and cornerback, which he said will "go down to the wire."

    Lawyers for the NFL urged a federal judge Wednesday to appoint a special investigator to look into what the league said is extensive fraud in claims on the $1 billion concussion settlement.

    NFL attorneys said a study by the independent auditors in the claims process showed about 440 claims were flagged for denial based on evidence of fraud by attorneys, doctors or former players. Lawyers representing the former players and their estates said most of the opportunity for fraud has been resolved because anyone filing a claim after the settlement’s effective date has to see a neuro-specialist from a list of approved certified physicians.

    The settlement, which took effect January 2017 Jamison Crowder Jersey , resolved thousands of lawsuits that accused the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of repeated concussions.

    It covers retired players who develop Lou Gehrig’s disease, dementia or other neurological problems believed to be caused by concussions suffered during their pro careers, with awards as high as $5 million for the most serious cases.

    ”We are talking about significant evidence of widespread fraud. We’re not talking about a difference in medical opinion,” said NFL attorney Richard Tarlowe.

    Tarlowe showed evidence in fraud designations against eight doctors, two law firms and a former player. He focused on practices including doctors seeing players for evaluation not in clinical settings, but in hotel rooms, law offices or other places. He also cited a doctor who said she spent seven to 12 hours evaluating each patient, but approved sometimes as many as eight patients a day.

    ”That’s physically impossible based on how long she said it takes Dan Skuta Jersey ,” he said.

    Three different attorneys who represent dozens of claimants spoke for the former players Wednesday. Two said they objected to the appointment of a special investigator with subpoena power and the ability to compel testimony.

    They said the current structure is more than adequate for identifying fraud and not paying out claims. They also said the rules that became effective in January 2017 including the approved physicians list will greatly reduce the opportunity for fraudulent claims.

    League lawyers said investigating the fraud claims has contributed to the slower determinations and awarding of money for legitimate claims. Plaintiffs’ attorneys have said the settlement process is moving too slowly.

    The claims administrators confirmed Wednesday that more than $300 million has been paid out from about $439 million that has been awarded through the claims process- nearly three times the expected amount for the first year of the settlement.

    They also said they have the ability to determine if a claim is fraudulent and flag it for denial. The power of a special investigator would be to determine if there was purposeful intent behind the fraudulent claims.

    Tarlowe said if intent is determined, cases could be referred to the Department of Justice, lawyers and doctors could be turned in to professional ethics panels and lose their ability to practice or other punitive measures might be taken.

    Judge Anita Brody said she had only seen one case of fraud against a former player out of almost 20,000 possible claimants who registered.

    ”To be clear we are talking mostly about the doctors and lawyers in these cases,” she said.
