    * Marcus Robinson has been demoted to the No. 3 receiver and, to the apparent agitation of Mike Tice, won't get the job back until he earns it. Robinson, who was an 11th-hour scratch last Friday, isn't expected to play in either of the final two preseason games. His roster spot in the starting lineup is being taken by Nate Burleson, who Tice says will keep the job when the team opens the regular season, citing that he isn't willing to start a receiver that hasn't played in the preseason.

    Interesting from a fantasy football perspective, I had penciled in Robinson as a sleeper pick but I guess now I wouldn't touch him.

    Problem with Tice saying that he isn't willing to start a receiver that hasn't played in the preseason is....he, Robinson, has played a game already.
    He has caught 2 passes for 60 yards.
