A look at Thursday nights preseason matchups (all times EDT):Atlanta vs. Miami at Orlando, Florida, 8 p.m.No NFL games have been played in the Citrus Bowl in nearly two decades. But with the Pro Bowl scheduled there in late January, the Dolphins moved this one from South Florida to the central part of the Sunshine State and the newly renovated Camping World Stadium.The City of Orlando and Orange County put $207 million into updating the aging stadium in hopes of being able to lure NFL action back to Orlando. Its the first time since 1997 the NFL has played a preseason game in Orlando.Its a very strong tie to the Pro Bowl, said Peter OReilly, the NFLs senior vice president of events. It provides us an opportunity to test the game presentation, the game operations and the stadium operations in the tremendously renovated Camping World Stadium.Moving the game from Miami allows the Dolphins another week to prepare their stadium, which is in the final phase of a $500 million renovation that includes a canopy. The first game there will now be the preseason finale Sept. 1.The Falcons substitution plan may not follow the usual flow for the third week of preseasons, which are considered the most important for starters. Coach Dan Quinn is still hoping to give full quarters to backups competing for spots at wide receiver, running back, offensive guard, and linebacker, among other spots.I wish there were more quarters to play, because we want to take a look at a number of guys, Quinn said.Expect such established starters as quarterback Matt Ryan, wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman to see less time than others, as Quinn plans to substitute individuals instead of full units.Backup running back Terron Ward will miss his second straight game with an ankle injury, opening the way for Cyrus Gray, Brandon Wilds and Gus Johnson to make gains in bids for a roster spot.Dolphins coach Adam Gase said it will be a game-time decision whether four-time Pro Bowl DE Cameron Wake plays for the first time since tearing his Achilles tendon last season.Wake was asked if he thinks he needs the work Thursday.I always need work, he said. If youre not getting better, youre getting worse. Then you need to retire.Also coming off Achilles tendon surgery is veteran RB Arian Foster, who carried twice for minus-5 yards last week.We didnt have much to evaluate, Gase said. The couple of carries that he had, there wasnt much there. He tried to create a couple things on his own. Hopefully we can get him going a little bit this week. Obviously I dont want to overdo it with him, but Im pretty sure his resume speaks for itself.Gase wants to see better tackling from his defense and special teamers.Its a race to see who becomes the best tackling teams in football as you go throughout the season, because the only live work you really get nowadays are in games. Unless we want to start doing live out here and taking a chance of somebody getting hurt in practice, I mean its really not something thats going to happen. We have to make sure were great on technique. We have to get tight to them. We got to run our feet. Those are some things that we have to do a better job of.First-round draft pick Laremy Tunsil will likely start and get a lot of work at left guard. Second-year CB Tony Lippett, who is trying to secure a starting job, will also get a long look.Backup QB Matt Moore is out with a concussion, which may mean lots of playing time for rookie Brandon Doughty.Dallas at Seattle, 10 p.m.Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott is expected to make his preseason debut and get quite the initial test against one of the best defenses in the NFL.Most of the attention will be on Elliott and another rookie, promising young quarterback Dak Prescott. While Elliott is the presumed starter at running back in Dallas, he has veteran help in Alfred Morris, who is having a strong preseason. Prescott could wind up as Tony Romos backup for the regular season.The Cowboys will be minus wide receiver Dez Bryant due to a concussion suffered in practice.Seattles focus will be on the offensive line and trying to settle on a group of five up front heading into the season. Game 3 of the preseason schedule always is the most significant dress rehearsal for the real stuff.So the Cowboys game will also be the most extensive playing time of the preseason for Russell Wilson.However, the Seahawks will hold out running back Thomas Rawls for another week as he recovers from last years broken ankle.---AP Sports Writers Steven Wine, Terrance Harris, Tim Booth and Charles Odum contributed.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Antonio Senzatela Jersey . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats.

The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. Eoin Morgan wants his England one-day team to keep pushing themselves to new heights and believes there is a confidence in the squad that anything is possible.Englands focus now returns to white-ball cricket with Morgan back in charge for the five ODIs against Pakistan followed by a one-off T20 which finishes the international season.The importance given to 50-over cricket is reinforced by there being no rotation in the one-day squad for this series as eyes remain firmly fixed on the Champions Trophy next June.Since the beginning of the last home season, Englands reinvigorated one-day side has ticked up an impressive list of batting feats: a first total over 400, another total of 399, chasing down 350 with six overs to spare, a ten-wicket win chasing 255 and, individually, a record 46-ball century from Jos Buttler plus Jason Roys 162.Since May 1, 2015 they have scored their runs faster than any other team and hit more sixes.The key phrase is pushing the side. Over the last 12-18 months weve seen the progression of everyone and the skill levels, Morgan told ESPNcricinfo at a NatWest Cricket grassroots event. Theres a huge amount of belief. Its almost as though there are no restrictions to anything we can do.However, Morgan wants more consistency from the side - series win against New Zealand, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have been tempered by losses to Australia and South Africa since the last World Cup - and a climb from their current position of No. 5 in the rankings. Within the next year, the period which includes the Champions Trophy, he wants England within the top three.Realistically, if we want to be favourites going into the Champions Trophy or the World Cup then we need to work our way up the rankings which means showing more consistency in all three facets. We want to be in the top three three years before the World Cup. You still need to deliver in the tournament itself, but getting the results to move up the rankings builds confidence.Morgan believes that one of Englands most significant results of late has been the tie they earned in the opening ODI against Sri Lanka at Trent Bridge when Liam Plunkett launched the final ball for six following a stand of 138 between Buttler and Chris Woakes to revive the chase.We were down and out, Morgan said. Its about building the belief that no matter how far behind the game you are there is an escape route.ddddddddddddMorgan said he sees 17 or 18 players that the Champions Trophy squad will come from next year in England. But he added that the squads for the tours to Bangladesh (security permitting) and India will be selected with those specific conditions in mind. He indicated four spinners could be the picked for those trips, something England have edged towards with Liam Dawsons call-up against Pakistan.Morgan explained that, in a perfect world, he would be able to call on a left-arm quick who can bowl 90mph - that is now available in T20 with Tymal Mills, but he is not an option for 50-over cricket. However, Morgan has been delighted by the battering-ram role played by Plunkett and is excited to have Mark Woods pace back.We probably have three guys who can do it [bowl at 90mph] at the moment and you want to have one in the side that can hurry up the batsmen when the ball is offering nothing else. Thats important in the 50-over game where it can stand still for periods.From a personal point of view, this series will be Morgans return to action having been out for almost a month with a chipped bone in his finger. He led from the front in 2015 home season with prolific series against New Zealand and Australia, but has been the most underwhelming of a dazzling top order since.He hasnt hit an international half-century in 23 innings but made an unbeaten 47 off 39 balls in the T20 against Sri Lanka, and was frustrated that the injury struck when he was finding form having made a century for Middlesex in late July.The finger doesnt look great but its functioning better than it looks, he said. I had my first hit two days ago and didnt walk out of the net thinking Im that far behind. That was quite nice because I actually broke it when I was finding a bit of form which was a bit of a pain. Ive had breaks away before, then come into series without having scored many runs, so am very relaxed and feel quite refreshedEoin Morgan was speaking at the NatWest U13 Club Championships Final.
