Around the NFC South: Finneran makes his case

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas


After a quiet training camp, second-round pick Dexter Jackson probably earned the top return job with an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown against Houston.


Receiver Brian Finneran, who's trying to make the team after two years of injuries, helped his cause by catching a touchdown pass.


Deuce McAllister and Mike McKenzie put to rest any lingering questions about their health with strong performances in the preseason finale.


The early word on backup quarterback Matt Moore is that he has a shin bruise. But more tests will be performed today. If Moore's out for any period of time, Brett Basanez will be elevated to the No. 2 job behind Jake Delhomme.
