  • Ravens sign S Will Hill to one-year extension
    Ravens signed SS Will Hill to a one-year extension through 2016.

    Advice: It's a sign the Ravens genuinely believe Hill has turned his life around. Hill went undrafted over character concerns in 2012, and proceeded to draw a suspension in each of his first three NFL campaigns. Hill has been popped for both substance abuse and PEDs. He is still only 25, however, and has proven to be one of the league's more effective safeties when on the field. Now the Ravens will keep their fingers crossed he stays there.

  • Victor Cruz (calf) sitting out on Saturday
    Victor Cruz (calf) will miss Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

    Advice: It means Cruz will miss the entire preseason. Coming back from a devastating knee injury, Cruz remains on track for Week 1. He's in the WR3 conversation. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:09 am

  • Eagles waive/injure ILB Emmanuel Acho
    Eagles waived/injured ILB Emmanuel Acho (thumb surgery).

    Advice: The special teamer/reserve linebacker should clear waivers and revert to injured reserve. It's possible he'll eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:55 am

  • Sammy Watkins will miss 3rd preseason game
    Sammy Watkins (glute) will sit out Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal against the Steelers.

    Advice: It's a disappointment for a player who has been the star of Bills camp, but he's fully expected to be ready for Week 1. Watkins needs to pick up fewer nicks and bruises as an NFL sophomore. He's not off to a good start. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:39 am

  • Murray does not expect to rotate series
    DeMarco Murray said he does not expect to rotate series with Ryan Mathews.

    Advice: "I don't think it will be alternating series," Murray said. "But [Mathews] is a quality back, great guy, works extremely hard. I'm sure he'll get his fair share of touches. But I don't know how the rotation will be yet, we haven't touched on it." Murray started the second preseason game, but Mathews scored a touchdown on the first drive after subbing in for Murray. Murray scored a touchdown on the next possession. Murray will not see close to his workload from last season, but he should see enough touches to remain an RB1. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:10 am

  • Pagano calls Toler (neck) week to week
    Colts coach Chuck Pagano said CB Greg Toler is week to week with a neck injury.

    Advice: Toler suffered the injury in the second preseason game. He was originally considered day to day, but he was downgraded after consulting with a doctor. Downgrades are never a good thing, and there is a chance Toler misses some regular season action. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:07 am

  • Ryan Mallett absent from practice Thursday
    Texans QB Ryan Mallett did not practice Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Bill O'Brien declined to say why Mallett missed practice, but said he should be back on Friday. It was announced this week Mallett lost the battle for the starting job to Brian Hoyer. Mallett said he was disappointed with the team's decision but promised to work hard and be ready to play. It is unclear if the team's decision had anything to do with his absence on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:47 am

  • Dixon and Brown return to practice
    Bills RBs Boobie Dixon (calf) and Bryce Brown (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Both had been out most of camp. LeSean McCoy saw some conditioning work on the side, but he likely will not practice again until the regular season. After a nightmare run of injuries, the Bills' running backs are finally getting healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 am

  • CB Leonard Johnson in walking boot
    Bucs CB Leonard Johnson was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot.

    Advice: Johnson suffered an ankle injury in the second preseason game. The severity of the injury is unknown, but the walking boot is not a great sign. Johnson is competing with Sterling Moore and Mike Jenkins for snaps in nickel. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:00 am

  • Tyler Patmon expected to be slot corner
    Tyler Patmon is expected to serve as the Cowboys' slot corner with Orlando Scandrick (knee) done for the year.

    Advice: An undrafted sophomore, Patmon played 117 snaps his rookie year. Draft bust Morris Claiborne is expected to start opposite Brandon Carr on the outside, and rookie Byron Jones could push for snaps as well. No matter how they decide to line up, the Cowboys' secondary is considerably worse without Scandrick. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:21 am

  • Rivera: Do not expect more read option
    Coach Ron Rivera said he does not expect to use the read option "any more than we've done in the past."

    Advice: With Kelvin Benjamin done for the year, there was some thought Carolina would get Cam Newton more involved in the running game. Newton had more than 125 rushing attempts in each of his first two seasons, but he has seen his rushing totals fall each of the last two years. The Panthers might not want to use Newton more in the running game, but if Devin Funchess and company cannot pick up the slack, they may have no choice. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:38 am

  • Daniels and Packers break off negotiations
    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports DE Mike Daniels and the Packers have broken off contract negotiations.

    Advice: Daniels is reportedly looking for around $10 million a year, while the Packers' offers have been for several million less per season. $10 million per year would put Daniels in the same range as Corey Liuget, who signed a five-year, $51.25 million contract in June. An ascending player entering the final year of his deal, Daniels may decide to bet on himself and cash in next offseason. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:17 am

  • Sammy Watkins was training camp MVP
    The Buffalo News called WR Sammy Watkins the Bills' "August MVP."

    Advice: Tyler Dunne said Watkins was the best player on the field in camp and easily beat No. 1 CB Stephon Gilmore on multiple occasions. All reports on Watkins this preseason have been glowing, and it appears he has taken a step forward in his first NFL offseason. The problem for Watkins' fantasy value was never his talent, though. On a low-volume passing offense with an unsettled quarterback situation, it will be difficult for Watkins to consistently produce WR2 numbers. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:56 am

  • Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) still sidelined
    Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) remains sidelined at Broncos practice.

    Advice: He's missed the past 19 days and has obviously yet to appear in a preseason game. At this point, Sanders is highly unlikely to play at all this preseason. Hamstring injuries have a tendency to linger, but neither the Broncos nor any of the beat writers have expressed concern for Sanders' Week 1 availability. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:31 am

    Sammy Watkins (glute) remains sidelined at Bills practice.

    Advice: Watkins missed last week's preseason game, and is day to day. It's not a major issue, but a reminder that the wiry wideout dealt with a variety of minor ailments as a rookie. Watkins will be healthy long before Week 1. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:49 am

    Victor Cruz confirmed he is dealing with inflammation in his calf.

    Advice: Cruz said he should be good to go by the season opener, but any missed time is concerning coming off a devastating knee injury. Coach Tom Coughlin said he would like to get Cruz involved in the third preseason game, but that appears unlikely. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:55 am

  • Bucs CB Johnson leaves with ankle injury
    Bucs CB Leonard Johnson exited Monday night's preseason game with an ankle injury.

  • DeMarco Murray scores TD in preseason debut
    Making his preseason debut, DeMarco Murray rushed five times for 17 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's game against the Ravens.

    Advice: He added a 14-yard reception. Murray got the start, but Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles both got work on the Eagles' lengthy opening drive. Murray and Mathews rotated for Philly's first two series before heading to the showers. Murray is going to be the chairman of Philadelphia's committee, but the Eagles seem committed to getting Mathews real work on a weekly basis. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:47 pm

  • Ryan Mallett has middling night vs. Broncos
    Ryan Mallett started the Texans' second preseason game, completing 5-of-7 passes for 23 yards.

    Advice: That comes out to a 3.28 YPA. Mallett should have thrown a pick, but Broncos LB Brandon Marshall dropped it. The Houston Chronicle deemed Mallett's night "unimpressive." At this point, Mallett may have to put on a show against the Saints next week to beat out Brian Hoyer. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:57 pm

  • Cam Newton struggles in second preseason game
    Cam Newton completed 4-of-10 passes for 42 yards and an interception in Saturday's preseason game.

    Advice: With Kelvin Benjamin out for the year and Devin Funchess sidelined, Corey Brown and Ted Ginn were Newton's top receivers. His interception came on a forced pass to Greg Olsen that should have been pick-sixed. Newton's supporting cast limits his upside, but his rushing makes him a mid-to-low QB1. Newton is 9-of-20 for 125 yards, one touchdown, and an interception through two preseason games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:44 pm

    DeMarco Murray is active for the Eagles' second preseason game.

  • Bills missing loads of skill talent vs. CLE
    Bills WRs Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Percy Harvin are inactive for Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Advice: It means Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel aren't going to have many weapons to work with as they jostle for the No. 1 job. Watkins is day to day with "soreness in his glute." Woods is battling an unknown (minor) ailment. Harvin has a hip issue. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:47 pm

    Advice: "We’ll see how it goes," Murray said. "It’s obviously [Eagles coach Chip Kelly's] decision. But I felt good and I’m hoping to play." Murray was held out of most practice activities over the last two weeks as the Eagles try to manage his reps coming off a 436-carry season. He got in a full session of practice Wednesday.

  • Sanders sidelined last 11 days with hamstring
    Emmanuel Sanders has been sidelined the last 11 days with a hamstring injury.

    Advice: Originally described as a cramp, it sounds as if Sanders actually pulled his hamstring in practice on August 6. He should still be 100 percent by the regular season, but soft-tissue injuries are always concerning. He is unlikely to play in the Broncos' second preseason game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:17 am

  • Victor Cruz practicing fully, calls self 100%
    The Giants have removed the practice restrictions on Victor Cruz (patellar tendon), who on Monday declared himself "100 percent."

    Advice: He'll be a full participant in Monday evening's Giants practice and may play in the second preseason game later this week. "I feel good. The knee is 100 percent," Cruz said during in a WFAN interview. "[Sunday] was probably my most physically enduring practice, in terms of limitations. You know they have been keeping me down to a number of plays per day. {Sunday] was my most." Cruz is ten months removed from surgery to repair a ruptured patellar tendon. While we remain skeptical of his re-draft value, Cruz should help the Giants as a possession-slot receiver if he can stay healthy this year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:46 pm
