08/28/16 - Andy Gallik, Boston Col, Titans C/G Andy Gallik, who had his knee scoped after getting a second opinion on it, was waived/injured and should revert to injured reserve once he clears waivers.
08/28/16 - Marcus Mariota, Oregon, Titans QB Marcus Mariota and many of the starters won't play more than one series when the Titans face the Dolphins to close preseason on Thursday.
08/28/16 - Ryan Delaire, Towson, Undrafted DE Ryan Delaire didn't practice and worked on the side with a wrap around his lower left leg.
08/28/16 - John Crockett, N Dakota St, Undrafted RB John Crockett could be iffy to play the preseason finale at Kansas City on Thursday. Crockett sustained an injury to his left shoulder in the second quarter of Friday night's game at San Francisco and didn't return. Crockett, a first-year player who seemingly had a hold on the No. 3 job at halfback, had 13 carries for a team-high 46 yards against the 49ers.
08/28/16 - Brett Hundley, UCLA, Packers QB Brett Hundley didn't play Friday at San Francisco. Hundley, a second-year pro who is the top backup to Rodgers, aggravated a left ankle injury in the previous game Aug. 18. Undrafted rookie Joe Callahan replaced Rodgers in the second quarter and played extensively, finishing an impressive 16-of-24 passing for 167 yards and a touchdown.
08/28/16 - Mike Hull, Penn St, Undrafted LB Mike Hull, undrafted out of Penn State last year, could get a chance to make an impact from scrimmage this week. Hull, a core special teams player, will likely get an extended look because backup middle linebacker James-Michael Johnson (thigh) is nursing an injury.
08/28/16 - Tony Lippett, Michigan St, Dolphins CB Tony Lippett struggled against Atlanta and could be in danger of losing his starting job to rookie Xavien Howard, who will make his preseason debut against Tennessee. Lippett was burned by Julio Jones and has been only so-so on his best days so far.
08/28/16 - Bobby McCain, Memphis, Dolphins CB Bobby McCain didn't have a good showing Thursday against Atlanta and could move further down the depth chart if rookie corner Xavien Howard does a good job. McCain was beaten badly by wideout Julio Jones from his left corner spot, but seemed to do OK at slot/nickel.
08/28/16 - Andrew Franks, RPI, Undrafted K Andrew Franks had an ugly shank in the Atlanta game on Thursday but he'll keep his job because Miami cut Marshall Koehn over the weekend. Franks was 13 of 16 last season.
08/28/16 - Jamil Douglas, Arizona St, Dolphins C/G Jamil Douglas, the 2015 fourth-round pick, could be on the verge of being cut because he isn't on the first or second team. Douglas, a disappointment so far, is a minimal special teams contributor. And he wasn't a draftee of current coach Adam Gase.
08/28/16 - Matt LaCosse, Illinois, Undrafted TE Matt LaCosse (knee) will reportedly have surgery to address an issue that first cropped up earlier in training camp. LaCosse had been competing for first-team reps prior to his injury.
08/27/16 - *Arik Armstead, Oregon, 49ers DE Arik Armstead did not play in Friday's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers because of a shoulder injury. Armstead has been practicing with the team, so the injury is not considered serious.
08/27/16 - DeAndrew White, Alabama, Undrafted WR DeAndrew White would stand to benefit if WR/KR Bruce Ellington were unable to play in the Sept. 12 regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. White, Ellington's backup, had arguably the catch of the night in Friday's loss to Green Bay, a 12-yarder for a first down from QB Colin Kaepernick.
08/26/16 - Greg Mancz, Toledo, Undrafted C Greg Mancz has been pressed into action as the new starting center with the season-ending injury to C Nick Martin. Mancz is regarded as a scrappy lineman who has clearly outplayed former Oakland Raiders lineman Tony Bergstrom. However, Mancz was dominated by Saints defensive lineman Nick Fairley during one play where he busted through him to sack quarterback Brock Osweiler. Mancz was an All-Mid-American Conference selection and a second-team All-American pick from the Football Writers Association of America. Mancz started 47 consecutive games for the Rockets and was a preseason candidate for the Rimington Trophy given to the nation's top center. "All I can do is get better every day," Mancz said. "All I can do is keep working: lunch pail attitude."
08/26/16 - *Benardrick McKinney, Miss St, Texans ILB Benardrick McKinney was excused from practice as he's a new father.
08/26/16 - *Darius Philon, Ark, Chargers DE Darius Philon is taking advantage of the snaps being missed by holdout Joey Bosa. Philon has worked himself into a starting role.
08/26/16 - Tyrell Williams, W Oregon, Undrafted WR Tyrell Williams continues to have a solid camp and he could nail down a significant role in the regular season with a strong performance in the third preseason game when QB Philip Rivers will have his longest stint of the summer.
08/26/16 - T.J. Clemmings, Pitt, Vikings OT T.J. Clemmings appears to have lost to Andre Smith in the battle for the starting right tackle job. But the second-year pro appears to be leading in the battle with Jeremiah Sirles for the backup swing tackle position. When LT Matt Kalil went down in practice on Sunday, it was Clemmings who stepped in for Kalil the rest of the week and will start at left tackle in Sunday's game against the Chargers.
08/26/16 - *Trae Waynes, Michigan St, Vikings CB Trae Waynes, the team's 2015 first-round draft pick, will get his second start of the preseason. He started the opener in Cincinnati when the team's other starting corner, Terence Newman, was sidelined.
08/25/16 - Trevor Siemian, NWestern, Broncos QB Trevor Siemian threw Wednesday and Thursday and will start against the Rams. He was limited to handoffs Tuesday because of shoulder soreness that stemmed from an awkward landing on the ground as he tried to make a tackle on the pick-six he threw last Saturday.
08/25/16 - Ty Sambrailo, Colorado St, Broncos OL Ty Sambrailo remains sidelined because of an elbow injury he suffered July 31. Sambrailo missed most of the team repetitions in OTAs because he was recovering from a torn labrum, and appears unlikely to contribute at right guard, where he was projected to start, in the early season.
08/25/16 - Jeff Heuerman, Ohio St, Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman did not practice all week because of a hamstring injury he suffered Aug. 17. This is the second hamstring injury that Heuerman has had in the last three months. He missed most of OTAs because of his first hamstring problem, which followed his recovery from a torn ACL.
08/25/16 - Rob Havenstein, Wisconsin, Rams RT Rob Havenstein, who is on the physically unable to perform list since the open of camp with a foot injury, got on the field this week participating in individual drills. While it's a step in the right direction, time is running out for him to see action during the preseason. "He's making progress," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. "We're going to take him with us, get him in a pre-game workout, see how he is. See how he does next week."
08/25/16 - Dres Anderson, Utah, Undrafted WR Dres Anderson has joined the mix not only to make the 49ers' regular-season roster, but to make it as a contributing wide receiver. The second-year player put himself on the map among the lackluster corps of wideouts with a 30-yard touchdown catch last week against the Denver Broncos.
08/25/16 - Zach Zenner, S Dakota St, Undrafted RB Zach Zenner effectively won the Lions' No. 3 running back job on Thursday when the team released veteran Stevan Ridley. Zenner played ahead of Ridley in the running back rotation most of the summer, so the transaction didn't come as a huge surprise. The Lions did guarantee $250,000 of Ridley's salary when they signed him this summer. Rookie Dwayne Washington likely will be the Lions' No. 4 back after his strong preseason.
