1.Raiders | Kenbrell Thompkins cut (USA Today) Oakland Raiders WR Kenbrell Thompkins was released Monday, Aug. 31, according to a source.1 hour
2.Dez Bryant (RotoWire) Bryant (hamstring) participated in team drills in Monday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. Analysis: The occasion marked Bryant's first work in the team portion of practice since last Wednesday. No matter, after logging no snaps in the Cowboys' first three preseason games, he's unlikely to risk the health of his healing hamstring Thursday against the Texans.2 hours
3.Dee Milliner (RotoWire) Milliner (wrist) has no specific return date for practice, and it's possible he may end up on short-term injured reserve, NJ.com reports. Analysis: Milliner will be playing behind the top-three Jets' cornerbacks upon his return, which may not be until after week 8. He'll provide valuable depth in the secondary, but could be pressed into a more prominent role if any of the regulars struggle with injury.2 hours
4.Mario Edwards (RotoWire) Edwards recorded two sacks in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals. Analysis: Edwards found himself in the Cardinals' backfield wreaking havoc time-and-time again on Sunday, and the two sacks don't give full credit to how well he played during his third preseason game. He's currently listed as the back-up defensive end behind Justin Tuck but he should see plenty of time on the field. Edwards could hold some value as an IDP if Tuck or Mack were to suffer an injury.2 hours
5.Jace Amaro (RotoWire) Amaro (shoulder) has no specific return date for practice, and his status for week 1 is very much in question, NJ.com reports. Analysis: Amaro missed out on valuable practice time in new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's offense, so it's difficult to know what type of role to expect for him upon his return.2 hours
6.Jeremy Kerley (RotoWire) Kerley (concussion) did some light running Monday, but is still in the NFL's post-concussion assessment protocol. He expects to be ready for week 1, NJ.com reports. Analysis: Although Kerley expects to be ready for the regular season, it's unclear as to what type of role he'll actually play upon his return. He was frequently playing with the second-team offense throughout the preseason, and he was also used as a kick returner.2 hours
7.Michael Dyer (RotoWire) Dyer should certainly benefit the most from the recent news regarding Trent Richardson.2 hours
8.Sean Weatherspoon (RotoWire) Weatherspoon (hamstring) was a limited participant at Monday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Analysis: Making his long-awaited return to drills, Weatherspoon wouldn't commit to suiting up for the final preseason game Thursday at Denver, stating, "I feel I have time to be ready." An appearance would likely go a long way in appeasing the mind of head coach Bruce Arians, but Weatherspoon isn't incorrect with nearly two weeks remaining before the Cardinals open the regular season on Sept. 13 against the Saints. If Weatherspoon is unable to do so, Kevin Minter and Kenny Demens would likely hold down th... (More)2 hours
9.Stevan Ridley (RotoWire) Ridley (knee) is still on the physically unable to perform list, and head coach Todd Bowles indicated that's likely where Ridley will start the season, NJ.com reports. Analysis: Bowles stated that the team's running backs are playing well right now, so Ridley will be able to take his time and get fully healthy. Once he has some practice time in pads, the team will evaluate at which point he's ready to be placed on the active roster. Even then, it's uncertain as to what his role on the team will be.2 hours
10.Trent Richardson (RotoWire) Richardson was cut by the Raiders on Monday, Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Selected third overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, Richardson hasn't lived up to the hype, despite receiving numerous opportunities to warrant a spot with his previous teams, the Browns and Colts. In 46 career games, he's been handed the rock 614 times, yet averaged a measly 3.31 YPC, which he supplemented with 19 career touchdowns and 2.45 receptions per contest. For the preseason, he managed just 15 rushes for 42 yards and three catches (on four targets) for five yards, so it's no surprise that the Raiders have subjected Richardson to waivers.2 hours
11.Devin Smith (RotoWire) Smith (ribs) is jogging, but still not close to fully returning to practice, NJ.com reports. Analysis: Head coach Todd Bowles doesn't expect Smith to be ready for week 1. Other than that, no specific timetable has been given for his return. As a rookie, missing all of the preseason games won't likely help his chances of seeing significant playing time early in the season.2 hours
12.Eric Decker (RotoWire) Decker (personal) did not practice Monday, NJ.com reports. Analysis: It appears that Decker's likely missing time as his wife prepares to give birth, as mentioned on his wife's Instagram page. There's been no timetable provided on when he may return to practice.2 hours
13.Calvin Pace (RotoWire) Pace (groin) is expected to play week 1, NJ.com reports. Analysis: New head coach Todd Bowles said that even if Pace is healthy, he won't play in this week's preseason game against the Eagles. Although he didn't practice, he rode a stationary bike in the rehab area of practice on Monday, indicating he's getting close to making a return.2 hours
14.Martavis Bryant (RotoWire) The NFL upheld Bryant's four-game suspension for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, the Steelers' official site reports. Analysis: Pittsburgh's offense will thus be without two of its primary contributors for at least a portion of the season's first quarter (also, Le'Veon Bell). The absences should result in significant looks for Markus Wheaton opposite Antonio Brown in the passing attack. After serving the suspension, Bryant will be allowed to return to the Steelers on Oct. 2 following a Week 4 showdown with the Ravens2 hours
15.Michael Crabtree (RotoWire) Crabtree caught just 1-of-4 passes for six yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals. Analysis: After three preseason games, Crabtree's hauled in just three passes for 21 yards which is certainly concerning for existing fantasy owners. Although the Raiders are limiting him a bit to try and keep him healthy, Crabtree has only seen eight targets in those three games combined. The 27-year old pass-catcher is expected to start in two-wide sets, but teammate Amari Cooper saw nine targets in Sunday's game alone which would suggest that he's going to be Derek Carr's go-to option entering Week 1.2 hours
16.Sheldon Richardson (RotoWire) Richardson entered a plea of not guilty, and has an October 5 pre-trial date in his court case for drag-racing, the New York Post reports. Analysis: Richardson's hearing will come the day after he finishes serving his four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The NFL will likely rule on whether he'll receive a separate suspension under the league's personal conduct policy after this legal matter has been completed.2 hours
17.DeVante Parker at limited practice on Monday (FFToday) DeVante Parker returned to the practice field for the first time since undergoing foot surgery in June. The team remains quietly hopefully that Parker, the team's first-round pick and most dynamic receiver, will be available when the season begins Sept. 13. Nearly three months removed from a procedure to replace a screw in his left foot, Parker was able to practice in a limited capacity Monday. Analysis: The Dolphins have targeted Week 1 as a possibility all along, so he appears to be right on track. A slow start should be assumed for the No. 14 overall pick, but patient... (More)2 hours
18.Geno Smith (RotoWire) Smith (jaw) did some light throwing a practice, but is still a few weeks away from returning, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: It's unclear as to whether Smith will regain the starting quarterback job upon his return. Ryan Fitzpatrick will likely have a chance to hold onto the job with strong regular-season performances.2 hours
19.Raiders | Oakland releases Trent Richardson (USA Today) Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson was released Monday, Aug. 31, according to a source.2 hours
20.Lorenzo Mauldin (RotoWire) Mauldin (knee) missed Monday's practice, but was wearing a helmet in the rehab area, indicating he's close to returning, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Mauldin avoided the trainer's room, an indication he could be close to returning to practice. He was competing throughout camp to earn a spot in the linebacker rotation for the Jets, but there's no clear indication as to how much he'll play upon his return.2 hours
21.Leonard Williams (RotoWire) Williams (knee) missed Monday's practice, but he went through light agility drills, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The fact that Williams avoided the trainer's room indicates he has a decent chance of being ready for the season opener. The Jets will need him to play a prominent role on the defensive line, as Sheldon Richardson (suspension) is out for at least the first four weeks of the season.2 hours
22.Raiders waive Trent Richardson (FFToday) Sources: Raiders have cut Trent Richardson.2 hours
23.Josh Boyce (RotoWire) The Patriots have released Boyce. Analysis: The 2013 fourth-rounder figures to resurface in short order, but after a 2014 season in which he suited up in just one regular season game, without recording a catch, he's well off the fantasy radar.2 hours
24.Julius Thomas Out At Least Until Week 4 (FFChamps) Jacksonville Jaguards tight end, Julius Thomas, needs surgery to repair his injured hand/finger and is not expected back until at least Week 4. Analysis: Its a major blow to the Jaguars who spent a lot of money to acquire the talented tight end this offseason. Marcedes Lewis will be the Jags starter until Thomas returns.2 hours
25.DeVante Parker (RotoWire) Parker returned to practice Monday for the first time since undergoing left foot surgery in early June, the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: More importantly, the report encouragingly notes that Dolphins remain "quietly hopeful" that Parker will be available for the team's Sept. 13 regular season opener against Washington. While such a potential outcome is far from solidified, the first-rounder's return to practice Monday is a key step in the right direction toward that end.2 hours
26.Julius Thomas likely to undergo finger surgery (FFToday) Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is considering having surgery on his finger, a procedure that would sideline the two-time Pro Bowler for at least four weeks. GM David Caldwell confirmed Monday that Thomas, the team's top free-agent acquisition this past offseason, will receive a second medical opinion Tuesday before deciding whether to undergo the surgery. A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Thomas is expected to undergo the surgery. Thomas was injured in Jacksonville's preseason opener earlier this month, but the Jaguars expected him to be ready for their regula... (More)3 hours
27.Julius Thomas (RotoWire) Thomas will get a second opinion before he decides to have finger surgery, the Florida Times-Union reports. Analysis: GM Dave Caldwell said Thomas would miss the first three games if he has surgery to repair a tendon in the finger her broke in mid-August. "My understanding is that if he does need it, it only pushes him back a couple of weeks in terms of his return time," Caldwell said. "He was going to be 50-50 for the opener. We would hope if everything went well it should be four weeks from the surgery where he'd be back to full strength."3 hours
28.Patriots | Two players released (USA Today) New England Patriots WR Josh Boyce and TE Jimmay Mundine were released Monday, Aug. 31.3 hours
29.Dolphins | Rishard Matthews moving up depth chart (USA Today) Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews has performed well during training camp and started ahead of WR Kenny Stills in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.3 hours
30.DeAndre Smelter (RotoWire) Smelter (knee) was placed on the non-football injury list, CSN Bay Area reports. Analysis: The 49ers drafter Smelter knowing he would need to recover from the ACL tear he suffered in November. All reports were that he was rehabbing well this offseason, so there is a chance he sees the field sometime after his first six weeks of ineligibility are over.3 hours
31.Julius Thomas (RotoWire) Thomas needs finger surgery, but it should only set him back a few weeks, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports. Analysis: ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reported Thomas could miss 4-5 weeks, which would include the first three games. Marcedes Lewis should see an expanded role in the Jaguars' offense to start the 2015 regular season.3 hours
32.Rams | Two roster moves made (USA Today) St. Louis Rams CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 31. WR Damian Williams was subsequently released.3 hours
33.Garrett Hartley (RotoWire) Hartley (hamstring) has been placed on IR by the Steelers. Analysis: With Hartley, who has been signed by the Steelers to replace Shaun Suisham, now out of the mix, the team has acquired fellow kicker Josh Scobee from the Jaguars.4 hours
34.Panthers | Kevin Norwood trade update (USA Today) Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kevin Norwood was acquired from the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Aug. 31, in exchange for an undisclosed 2017 conditional draft pick.4 hours
35.Browns | Barkevious Mingo returns to the field (USA Today) Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo (knee) participated in individual drills during practice Monday, Aug. 31. Head coach Mike Pettine said the team hopes Mingo will be ready for the start of the season.4 hours
36.Bills | Mario Williams sits out (USA Today) Buffalo Bills DE Mario Williams (calf) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 31, because of a calf injury.4 hours
37.Jeremy Lane (RotoWire) Lane (knee/arm), as expected, was placed on the regular-season PUP list Monday, the Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Lane's double-whammy injury last season was perhaps the worst in Super Bowl history -- he tore an ACL and suffered a gruesome compound arm fracture on the same play. He'll likely be out more than then PUP-mandated six weeks.4 hours
38.Bills | Percy Harvin takes part in practice (USA Today) Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin (hip) participated in team drills during practice Monday, Aug. 31.4 hours
39.Rams | Roster moves made (USA Today) St. Louis Rams WR Tyler Slavin was waived and TE Brad Smelley (undisclosed) was waived/injured Monday, Aug. 31.4 hours
40.Paul Richardson (RotoWire) Richardson (knee), as expected, was placed on the regular-season PUP list Monday, the Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Richardson tore an ACL in the playoffs in January and was not expected to be ready for the season. He'll miss the first six weeks, at least.4 hours
41.Bills | Sammy Watkins practices (USA Today) Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (glute) participated in team drills during practice Monday, Aug. 31.4 hours
42.Chiefs | Travis Kelce leaves practice (USA Today) Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (leg) left practice early Monday, Aug. 31, because of a right leg injury. Kelce was able to walk off the field but did not return to practice.4 hours
43.Kasen Williams (RotoWire) Williams, who has had a good training camp, got closer to making the roster Monday when Kevin Norwood was traded to the Panthers. Analysis: Williams still faces an uphill battle, especially if the Seahawks only keep six receivers. B.J. Daniels and Kevin Smith are seemingly ahead of him on the depth chart. Williams probably has a better shot of landing on the practice squad.4 hours
44.Jags GM hopes Julius Thomas returns by W... (Rotoworld) Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell called Week 4 a "realistic" return target for Julius Thomas (hand surgery). Analysis: Thomas has already been essentially ruled out for the first three games of the season. It sounds like returning in Week 4 against the Colts would be a best case scenario. Expect Allen Robinson to be a target monster in the meantime, and for Allen Hurns to also see a bump in early-season usage.4 hours
45.Cowboys | Rolando McClain activated (USA Today) Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (knee) was activated from the Phyiscally Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 31, and can begin practicing.4 hours
46.Miami 'quietly hopeful' about Parker's s... (Rotoworld) DeVante Parker (foot) resumed practicing Monday, and the Dolphins are "quietly hopeful" he'll be ready for Week 1. Analysis: Parker's limited session on Monday was his first practice of any kind since his June operation. With only 13 days to get in game shape, Parker will undoubtedly will be on a snap count for the opener, but he could be worked into the offense quickly. Parker remains worth stashing as a WR4/5.4 hours
47.Ryan Broyles (RotoWire) Broyles was waived by the Lions on Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: Broyles actually requested his release Saturday and the Lions obliged just a couple days afterwards in an attempt to cut down their roster. The wide receiver is now free to sign with another team, although he's only managed to record 10 total catches over the past two seasons and most likely will only provide depth wherever he ends up.4 hours
48.B.J. Daniels (RotoWire) Daniels has the inside track to a WR roster spot after Kevin Norwood was traded Monday to the Panthers. Analysis: Daniels' versatility has really impressed in training camp. His transition from QB to WR has gone smoothly, he's become the backup kick returner and he can be the emergency quarterback, if needed. With Paul Richardson going on the PUP list, Daniels would be the sixth WR on the roster, with Kevin Smith and Kasen Williams slightly behind him. He'll likely be inactive most weeks, though, even if he makes the team.4 hours
49.Blidi Wreh-Wilson resumes practicing (Rotoworld) Titans CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson has returned from his high ankle sprain. Analysis: He resumed practicing Monday after missing the previous two-plus weeks of training camp. With top Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin surgery) unlikely to play before Week 3, Wreh-Wilson projects as a potential starter opposite Perrish Cox to begin the year. DFS players should be praying Wreh-Wilson gets the nod with the ones. Wreh-Wilson is one of the NFL's easiest-to-burn corners.4 hours
50.Lions | Joique Bell practices (USA Today) Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') was a limited participant in practice and took repetitions with the first-team offense Monday, Aug. 31, after being activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.4 hours
51.Juwan Thompson (RotoWire) Thompson is in line to be the No. 3 running back this season behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, and ahead of Montee Ball, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Because Thompson plays on special teams, he has the upper hand on the third-string role ahead of Ball, who began last season as the starter. While Thompson's roster spot appears to be secure, his fantasy value is still limited as long as Anderson and Hillman are healthy.4 hours
52.Rolando McClain comes off PUP list (Rotoworld) Cowboys activated MLB Rolando McClain (knee scope) from the active/PUP list. Analysis: McClain is suspended for Weeks 1-4, but will be ready to rock against the Patriots in Week 5. One of 2014's biggest surprises, McClain will be returning to a starting job.4 hours
53.Joique Bell Activated From PUP List (FFChamps) The Lions have activated running back, Joique Bell, from the physically unable to perform list. Analysis: The running back sat out much of training camp while recovering from Achilles tendon and knee surgeries.4 hours
54.Montee Ball (RotoWire) Ball is expected to get plenty of reps in the Broncos' final preseason game Thursday against the Falcons as he continues to battle Juwan Thompson for the third running back role, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The report notes that Thompson's roster spot is fairly secure because of his special teams work, but because Ball doesn't play there, he could be a fairly regular inactive this season as the fourth running back. It sounds like the Broncos will keep four running backs on the roster, but Ball's fantasy upside is very weak if he stays in Denver.4 hours
55.Haloti Ngata (RotoWire) Ngata (hamstring) was removed from the non-football injury list Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: Ngata picked up a hamstring injury earlier in the summer and has been sidelined throughout the preseason as a result. Before being activated, Ngata was already able to work out which suggests that a return for the season opener on Sept. 13 against the Chargers is a real possibility even though he just recently rejoined team practices.4 hours
56.Amari Cooper Looks Legit In 3rd Preseason Game (FFChamps) Oaklan Raiders rookie wide receiver, Amari Cooper, had four catches for 62 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals. Analysis: Cooper was targeted nine times and should rack up the looks once the regular season begins.4 hours
57.Cowboys | Dallas not pursuing Fred Jackson? (USA Today) Free-agent RB Fred Jackson (Bills) probably won't be pursued by the Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer.4 hours
58.Kevin Norwood (RotoWire) Norwood was traded Monday to the Panthers, the National Football Post reports. Analysis: Norwood, who was injured most of last year, entered training camp with seemingly little competition for the last WR job, but he did next to nothing, was overshadowed by B.J. Daniels, among other lesser-knowns, and was expected to be cut. The Seahawks found a suitor, though, in the Panthers, who need help at wideout after the season-ending injury to Kelvin Benjamin and a hamstring injury to rookie Devin Funchess. Norwood is the third fourth-round WR bust in the last five years for the Seahawks.4 hours
59.Devin Funchess (RotoWire) Funchess has aggravated the hamstring injury that has bothered him of late, according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. Analysis: Given that, it's unclear if the wideout has any chance to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Steelers, but so far there is nothing to suggest that Funchess' Week 1 status is in any peril.4 hours
60.Charles Tillman (RotoWire) Tillman did in fact suffer a concussion during Friday's game against the Patriots and was held out of Sunday's practice while under the league's concussion protocol, Joseph Persona and Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer report. Analysis: Tillman won't likely feature in Thursday's final preseason game against the Steelers as he'll put all of his focus on passing his mandatory examinations so he can be ready for the start of the regular season on Sept. 13 in Jacksonville. It initially seems that he'll have enough time to recover, but there's always the possibility that his concussion will linger and threaten his availability.4 hours
61.49ers place Smelter on reserve/NFI list (Rotoworld) 49ers placed WR DeAndre Smelter (ACL surgery) on the reserve/NFI list. Analysis: The reserve/non-football injury list works the same as reserve/PUP, so Smelter will be ineligible to play in San Francisco's first six games. Smelter tore his ACL last season at Georgia Tech. The 132nd overall pick in May's draft, Smelter might have been a day-two selection without the injury.5 hours
62.Lawrence Okoye among 49ers' cuts (Rotoworld) 49ers waived DL Lawrence Okoye, K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, OT Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon and FB Trey Millard. Analysis: Okoye signed a reserve/future contract in January. Still only 24 (in October), Okoye is a freak-of-nature athlete for his 6-foot-6 frame, but it simply isn't translating to football. The fact that he can't even crack the 49ers' practice speaks ill of his development.5 hours
63.Coby Fleener (RotoWire) Fleener (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports. Analysis: Fleener has been dealing with an ankle injury for the last few weeks but it's never seemed overly serious despite him missing all three preseason games thus far. His return to practice suggests that he'll be ready to start in the opener Sept. 13 against the Bills, although there's still a chance he may skip the final preseason event against the Bengals on Thursday.5 hours
64.Tyrod Taylor (RotoWire) Coach Rex Ryan has confirmed that Taylor has been named the Bills' starting quarterback. Analysis: While Taylor's ascension to the team's No. 1 QB job had already been widely reported earlier Monday, the coach eventually confirmed the news, noting with regard to the call that he's "100 percent confident and we as an organization are 100 percent confident in the decision." Meanwhile, Ryan maintains that the Bills plan to keep three quarterbacks, which means that either EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel or Matt Simms is a candidate to be sent packing by the team before 53-man rosters are finalized.5 hours
65.Montee Ball on the roster bubble with Br... (Rotoworld) Montee Ball appears to be in danger of losing his roster spot in Denver. Analysis: He won't be a part of Denver's first cuts, but he might not make it when the Broncos trim to 53 this upcoming weekend. Ball is squarely behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, while Juwan Thompson is making a run to be Denver's No. 3 back. "Special teams is a big factor with him and Juwan," coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll see. I'm fine with Montee." If Ball were cut on Saturday, he would go through the NFL's waivers process. "Right now it's C.J., Ronnie, then Juwan, then ... (More)5 hours
66.Panthers | Kevin Norwood acquired (USA Today) Seattle Seahawks WR Kevin Norwood was traded to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a conditional draft pick, according to a source.5 hours
67.Jaguars | Julius Thomas expected to miss 4-5 weeks (USA Today) Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) is expected to need surgery on a tendon in his finger and is expected to be out four to five weeks, according to a source. Thomas will receive a second opinion on his finger Tuesday, Sept. 1.5 hours
68.Steelers Trade For Kicker Josh Scobee (FFChamps) The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded Scobee to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a sixth-round draft pick in 2016. The Steelers needed a kicker after losing Shaun Suisham (knee) and then Graham Hartley (hamstring) to preseason injuries. Analysis: Scobee was the longest-tenured player on Jacksonville's roster, having joined the franchise as a fifth-round draft pick in 2004. He is in the final year of his contract, which pays him $3.425 million. Scobee has appeared in 168 regular-season games and connected on 235 of 291 field-goal attempts (80.8 percent) and 317 of 322 extra points. Among active kickers, Scobee ranks eighth in field goals... (More)5 hours
69.T.Y. Hilton (RotoWire) Hilton is going through the NFL's concussion protocol. Analysis: The wideout was evaluated after Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, with the report noting that coach Chuck Pagano "expects Hilton to be okay." While that wording sounds vaguely encouraging, Hilton's status must now be monitored in advance of the Colts' Sept. 13 regular season opener against the Bills.5 hours
70.Steelers start cutting down roster (Rotoworld) Steelers waived G/C Miles Dieffenbach, WR Kenzel Doe, WR C.J. Goodwin, RB Braylon Heard, DE Joe Kruger, DT Joe Okafor, OL Collin Rahrig, CB Jordan Sullen, OT Kevin Whimpey and S Ian Wild. Analysis: TE Cameron Clear, DE Niko Davis and TE Ray Hamilton were waived/injured, and should revert to injured reserve.5 hours
71.Steelers | Garrett Hartley placed on IR (USA Today) Pittsburgh Steelers PK Garrett Hartley (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 31.5 hours
72.Steelers place Mike Adams on PUP list (Rotoworld) Steelers placed OT Mike Adams on the reserve/PUP list. Analysis: A total flop as the 56th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, Adams showed up to Steelers camp with a back injury and never got into a practice. Pittsburgh has a lot of talent in the skill positions, but has struggled drafting during the tenure of GM Kevin Colbert. Adams has been a huge miss.5 hours
73.Emmanuel Sanders (RotoWire) Sanders (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, the Denver Post reports. Analysis: Sanders has practiced just once since suffering the injury Aug. 6, but head coach Gary Kubiak indicated that he expected Sanders to return this week. He is unlikely to play in the Broncos' final preseason game, but he looks like he'll be fully healthy for the Week 1 opener against the Ravens.5 hours
74.Jeremy Lane beginning year on PUP list (Rotoworld) Seahawks placed CB Jeremy Lane (arm, knee) on the reserve/PUP list. Analysis: Lane tore his ACL and broke his arm making one of the best plays of the Super Bowl. It's more likely than not that Seattle's would-be slot corner spends the entire year on reserve/PUP.5 hours
75.Seahawks | Trade Kevin Norwood (USA Today) Seattle Seahawks WR Kevin Norwood was traded to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a conditional draft pick, according to a source.5 hours
76.Steelers send Hartley to I.R. (Rotoworld) Steelers placed K Garrett Hartley on injured reserve, ending his season. Analysis: Hartley suffered a severe hamstring injury in Pittsburgh's third preseason game. The Steelers have replaced him by trading for Josh Scobee.5 hours
77.Paul Richardson placed on PUP list (Rotoworld) Seahawks placed WR/KR Paul Richardson (ACL) on the reserve/PUP list. Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll initially claimed Richardson might participate in camp after undergoing ACL surgery in late January, but Week 7 is his earliest possible return date. There's a good chance Richardson ends up spending the entire year on reserve/PUP. Although he was a second-round pick just 15 months ago, Richardson has basically zero Dynasty value.5 hours
78.Steelers place Golson on I.R. (Rotoworld) Steelers placed CB Senquez Golson (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season. Analysis: The 56th overall pick in May's draft, Golson would've been in the hunt for a significant role in Pittsburgh's defense had he not been diagnosed with a severe shoulder injury toward the start of training camp. Golson will now take a "redshirt" as a rookie and try to get healthy for 2016.5 hours
79.Keelan Johnson among Seahawks' cuts (Rotoworld) Seahawks waived DB Keelan Johnson, OT Jesse Davis, CB George Farmer, WR Deshon Foxx, WR Deontay Greenberry, LB Quayshawn Nealy, DE Greg Scruggs and S Ty Zimmerman. Analysis: Johnson appeared in two games for the 2013 Eagles. Turning 26 next month, Johnson isn't much of a practice-squad candidate.5 hours
80.Seahawks begin purging roster (Rotoworld) Seahawaks released G/C Lemuel Jeanpierre and DT D'Anthony Smith. Analysis: Jeanpierre was a candidate for the Seahawks' starting center job, but quickly faded. Drew Nowak will be the team's Week 1 starter. Smith has made only two appearances since the end of the 2012 season.5 hours
81.NFL Denies Martavis Bryant Appeal (FFChamps) Steelers wide receiver, Martavis Bryant, has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The second-year player's appeal of the suspension was denied by the NFL on Monday. Analysis: Bryant became a key target for Ben Roethlisberger toward the end of the 2014 season, making 26 receptions for 549 yards and eight touchdowns. He was a fourth-round draft pick out of Clemson last year and was expected to be a strong complement to All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown.5 hours
82.Bills | Stephon Gilmore should be ready (USA Today) Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore (shoulder) should be able to play in Week 1, according to head coach Rex Ryan.5 hours

86.Leonard Williams expects to be ready for... (Rotoworld) Jets DE Leonard Williams (strained muscle behind knee) fully expects to be ready for Week 1. Analysis: "Yeah, I'll definitely be ready for Week 1," Williams promised. The plan is to rest Williams' strained knee muscle for the next "5-7 days," but he should get in a practice or two before the opener, and play against the Browns. Williams' early-season availability took on increased importance after Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension. Williams will start versus Cleveland.5 hours
87.Joique Bell (RotoWire) Bell (knee/Achilles) was activated from the PUP list Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Analysis: After head coach Jim Caldwell relayed Sunday that the Lions would play Bell's activation from the PUP list "by ear," the 29-year-old running back was removed from the list just one day later. Bell's activity level will likely be capped off the bat, clouding his availability for Thursday's exhibition finale against the Bills. However, he can now embark upon regaining his standing as the Lions' No. 1 back, which has been held down by rookie Ameer Abdullah throughout the preseason.5 hours
88.Panthers acquire WR Norwood from Seattle (Rotoworld) Panthers acquired WR Kevin Norwood from the Seahawks. Analysis: It was initially reported that Norwood had been waived. Instead he's been shipped to the thinnest wideout corps in the league. Norwood has nice measurables, but is a 26-year-old (in September) sophomore who didn't produce much in college. Even in receiver-needy Carolina, his contributions should come mostly on special teams.6 hours
89.Jordan Norwood has 7 preseason catches (Rotoworld) Broncos WR Jordan Norwood has seven catches for 67 yards this preseason. Analysis: Norwood played extensively with the Peyton Manning group in Denver's third preseason game, replacing Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) at slot receiver. When the Broncos' receiver crew is fully healthy, Sanders will man the inside in three-wide sets, with Demaryius Thomas and Cody Latimer aligning on the perimeter. Norwood is a crafty slot man, but he's low on talent as a 29-year-old former UDFA out of Penn State. He's just completing for a roster spot in Denver. Norwood missed all of 2014 with a torn AC...

93.Martavis Bryant's four-game suspension u... (Rotoworld) The league has upheld Martavis Bryant's four-game suspension for violating the substance-abuse policy. Analysis: Dominating the preseason after his hot finish to 2014, Bryant will rejoin the Steelers in Week 5. Bryant's initial role will depend on how Markus Wheaton fares in his absence, but he's worth stashing on your bench as a potential/likely stretch-run WR3.6 hours
94.Alshon Jeffery (RotoWire) Jeffery (calf) didn't participate in practice Monday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Analysis: Jeffery's absence from drills continues unabated, and a return to practice this week isn't paramount with the season opener nearly nearly two weeks in the future. With rookie Kevin White (shin) sitting on the PUP list, the Bears will likely exercise the utmost caution with their injury-plagued wide receiver corps - also, Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring).6 hours

96.49ers C Kilgore to begin year on PUP lis... (Rotoworld) 49ers placed C Daniel Kilgore (leg, ankle) on the reserve/PUP list. Analysis: Kilgore remains in a walking boot. He broke his leg last season, and underwent ankle surgery in June. Marcus Martin should man center in Kilgore's absence. The earliest he can return is Week 7.6 hours
97.Stephon Gilmore expected to be fine for ... (Rotoworld) Bills RCB Stephon Gilmore (shoulder) is expected to be ready for Week 1. Analysis: Gilmore tweaked his shoulder in Saturday's preseason game. The No. 10 overall pick of the 2012 draft is expected to play some shadow coverage for coach Rex Ryan this season.6 hours
98.Marcus Mariota (RotoWire) Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that Mariota's availability for Thursday's preseason finale against the Vikings is up in the air, Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com reports. Analysis: Mariota confirmed as much Monday, but the Titans are apt to exercise caution with the second pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. Through three exhibitions, he bounced back from a two-turnover debut, completing 19-for-27 overall for 252 yards and one interception. In addition, he scampered five times for 27 yards and sustained two sacks.6 hours
99.Sammy Watkins back at practice on Monday (Rotoworld) Sammy Watkins (glute) has resumed practicing. Analysis: Watkins will be ready to go in 13 days against the Colts. Watkins is an explosive playmaker, but for now is only on the WR2 fringes.6 hours
