  • Terrelle Pryor will be 'limited' on Thursday
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is expected to be "limited" in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: Pryor could end up playing only a series or two. That would be his most action of the preseason, of course, but it's not going to offer anything meaningful to his roster odds. Pryor's 53-man chances live and die with what he did in pad-less offseason practices. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am

  • Marcus Mariota expected to play Thursday
    Titans rookie QB Marcus Mariota is expected to start the team's fourth preseason game.

    Advice: Starters rarely play in the preseason finale, but coach Ken Whisenhunt apparently feels getting his rookie signal caller a couple extra meaningless snaps is necessary for his development. Mariota being on the field means the first-team offensive line and several skill position players will likely suit up as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:47 am

  • Ball expected to get 'bulk of work' Thursday
    Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said RBs Montee Ball and Kapri Bibbs will get the 'bulk of the work' in the fourth preseason game.

    Advice: Getting a lot of work in the fourth preseason game is never a good sign for a player's roster status. Ball has fallen way behind C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman and even Juwan Thompson on the depth chart. At this point, he is just fighting for a roster spot. It is a fight he may end up losing. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

  • DeMarco Murray to get 65% of carries?
    NJ Advanced Media's Eliot Shorr-Parks believes DeMarco Murray will see 65 percent of the Eagles' running back carries.

    Advice: Shorr-Parks believes Ryan Mathews gets 30 percent while Darren Sproles sees 5 percent. Eagles' running backs saw 415 carries last season, which would put Murray at 270 carries using Shorr-Parks' prediction. That is higher than the 250 carries the Philadelphia Inquirer "guessed" on Tuesday, but both numbers would have put Murray in the top ten for rushing attempts last season. As long as he stays healthy, Murray will get enough work to return value on his current late-first-round ADP. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:51 am

    Titans CB Jason McCourty called rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham "a beast."

    Advice: "There’s certain things you can’t teach," McCourty continued, "and you can’t teach a guy to be that big, and to be physical." DGB is an imposing figure at 6'5/237 pounds, but he is a rough around the edges prospect who has yet to earn a spot with the first-team offense. With only Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks to beat out, Green-Beckham should earn a starting role at some point this season. He is a decent late-round flier. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:36 am

  • 'Good chance' Celek leads tight ends in snaps
    The Philadelphia Daily News said there is a "good chance" Brent Celek leads the Eagles' tight ends in snaps this year.

    Advice: Just as he has every year since 2009. Chip Kelly reportedly loves Celek, and he offers the Eagles more in the running game than Zach Ertz. Recovering from groin surgery, Ertz may not even suit up early in the season, and when he finally gets back on the field it will again be in a backup role to Celek. Ertz is nothing more than a TE2 flier at this point. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:21 am

  • Coaches want to get Sproles involved more
    The Eagles want to get RB Darren Sproles more involved in the offense.

    Advice: "We'd like to get him the ball steadily and consistently, and he certainly is a unique, outstanding player," Eagles OC Pat Shurmur said before the preseason. "We just need to make sure we get him the ball, and we have a plan to do that." That plan could involve Sproles lining up more as a receiver, something the Eagles worked on in camp. Sproles averaged just six offensive touches a game over the second half of 2014. Even if he sees a slight bump in usage, he is unlikely to be a consistent fantasy option in standard formats.

  • James White could be 'odd man out'
    CSN New England's Tom E. Curran said James White could be the "odd man out" in the Patriots' third-down running back battle.

    Advice: White was drafted as the heir apparent to Shane Vereen last season, but he has struggled to make an impact in both of his NFL preseasons. Travaris Cadet shined in the offseason program, but he has missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury. Brandon Bolden is the most tenured and versatile of the four competing, and Dion Lewis has been the most impressive this preseason. At least one of those four will not make the team, and there is a chance it is White. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:23 am

    Advice: Brown was expected to open the season in the starting lineup following the season-ending injury to Kelvin Benjamin (ACL), but he has struggled mightily with drops both in games and in practice over the last several weeks. Brown has at least five drops in the last two preseason games, including two would-be touchdowns.

    The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett said TEs Joseph Fauria and Tim Wright are competing for "probably only one spot."

    Advice: Wright would seem to have the edge as the Lions traded for him just three days ago, but all Wright cost was a kicker who was unlikely to make the final roster anyway. Wright has floundered in both New England and Tampa Bay following a breakout rookie campaign, and Fauria offers the Lions a red-zone threat they are missing at the back end of their receiver corps. This competition could go down the wire, and both tight ends may end up on the final roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:49 am

  • Neurologist will examine Robert Griffin III
    A neurologist is expected to examine Robert Griffin III (concussion) on Thursday or Friday.

    Advice: ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim speculates Washington could decide to release Griffin if he is cleared. Griffin's $16.155 million fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning Griffin has to pass a physical before the Redskins can release him. Given his injury history, even allowing Griffin to practice with the team the next year risks an injury which could leave Washington on the hook for his entire 2016 salary.

"So all we can do is try to prepare him in practice. When you get to the season, it’s about matchups." Green-Beckham was held out of last week's dress rehearsal with an ankle injury.

  • DeMarco Murray to only get 225-250 carries?
    The Philadelphia Inquirer "guesses" that DeMarco Murray will finish the season with "225-250 carries."

    Advice: Beat writer Jeff McLane estimates Ryan Mathews at "100-125," and Darren Sproles at 50. At the high end of McLane's projections, Eagles backs would combine to finish the season at 425 carries, one year after LeSean McCoy, Chris Polk, and Sproles combined for 415. It's a reasonable projection, but the Eagles are very likely to run more this season than they did in 2014. While it's quite clear Murray won't approach last year's workload in Dallas, he is the obvious lead back in Philadelphia and should still exceed 300 touches if he stays healthy.

    Advice: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives. Beset by never-ending drama and an inability to stay at 100 percent, RGIII has met his predictable end for the league's most dysfunctional franchise. It's possible he won't even be the first man off the bench, with vanilla coach Jay Gruden preferring Colt McCoy's pop-gun skill-set to RGIII's unrefined dual-threat aesthetic. Much of Griffin's issues are his own doing, but he's received zero help from a franchise that's offered bafflingly little support since making him a centerpiece three years ago.

A source told The Washington Post the report was "100 percent wrong." Even if Washington wanted to move Griffin, they would struggle to find any takers.

PFT's Mike Florio contends that "this simply isn't true," and "everyone is on the same page." Florio insists Snyder is not hindering the Redskins' football operations.

Already sidelined for Cleveland's first two preseason games, Pryor's roster odds could take a critical blow if he isn't ready for the regular season dress rehearsal. Of course, the Browns find themselves so short of premium athletes on offense that they may be willing to roll the dice on Pryor regardless of what he does the rest of the summer.

  • 'No timetable' for Breshad Perriman's return
    Speaking Thursday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said there's "no timetable" for Breshad Perriman's (sprained PCL) return, and that his recovery gone slower than expected.

    Advice: Perriman should miss the entire preseason, and is looking mighty questionable for Week 1. It's a disaster for a team with no receiver depth to speak of. It should ensure Marlon Brown's roster spot. If you're drafting this weekend, Perriman should be treated as a boom-or-bust WR4. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:51 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 Thursday, 10:10 am

  • Terrelle Pryor (hammy) back in full pads Wed.
    Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Pryor had to get back to practice this week if he's going to make the roster. He initially injured his hamstring the first week of August, returned August 15, but re-tweaked it on the 18th, and had been out until today. Pryor missed the Browns' initial scrimmage and the first two preseason games. He's going to need to make some sort of impression the next two weeks to earn a spot. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:53 am

  • Gruden: We're not benching Robert Griffin III
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden is adamant he won't be benching Robert Griffin III.

    Advice: RGIII will start Saturday's game against the Ravens after suffering a concussion last week. Kirk Cousins will be the first man off the bench, suggesting he has a leg up on Colt McCoy for No. 2 duties. Although Griffin has never looked like a fit for Gruden's offense, he's still the only one of Washington's quarterbacks with anything resembling upside. That being said, one of Cousins and McCoy — and quite possibly both — will likely make starts this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:38 pm

  • Breshad Perriman (knee) still not practicing
    Ravens first-round WR Breshad Perriman (sprained PCL) remains sidelined.

    Advice: It means Perriman is all but certain to miss this weekend's regular season dress rehearsal. Sidelined since July 30, the No. 26 overall pick is now poised to enter Week 1 with essentially zero camp and preseason reps to his name. It strains belief that he'll be ready to start opposite Steve Smith Sr., putting Kamar Aiken on the spot. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 am

  • Montee Ball 'slumping' in training camp
    The Denver Post reports RB Montee Ball is being pushed by Juwan Thompson for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart.

    Advice: Ball has already been jumped by Ronnie Hillman, and it appears Juwan Thompson could be next. Ball has never flashed at the NFL level, and he has reportedly been "slumping" in training camp. His spot on the roster is not secure. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:21 am

  • Whisenhunt: Green-Beckham a work in progress
    Coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated rookie Dorial Green-Beckham remains a work in progress entering the Titans' third preseason game.

    Advice: Green-Beckham has flashed big time on the field, ripping off a 32-yard gain in the Titans' preseason opener and catching four balls for 40 yards in the second exhibition week. Whisenhunt, however, noted that Green-Beckham cost the team a 37-yard gain with a miscue on Sunday night and says Green-Beckham is "still finding his way" and "has some catching up to do." Green-Beckham did run with the ones a bit on Sunday. He's climbing the ladder. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:24 pm

  • Terrelle Pryor back on the roster bubble?
    ESPN Cleveland believes Terrelle Pryor's (hamstring) roster odds could come down to the next 72 hours.

    Advice: Reporter Tony Grossi believes Pryor "has" to practice this week and play in Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal to have a realistic shot at making the team. Coach Mike Pettine has basically said the same. Pryor was looking like a lock in early August, but at this point, his odds are probably worse than 50-50. Switching positions, he simply couldn't afford to miss as much camp time as he has. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 11:16 am
