  • Packers waive RB Rajion Neal
    Packers waived RB Rajion Neal.

    Advice: It's a mild surprise, as Neal had been on pace to be Green Bay's third back. A second-year undrafted free agent out of Tennessee, Neal had a middling preseason, averaging 4.1 yards on 17 carries. He'll presumably be heading to the practice squad. Rotoworld.com 31 minutes ago

    Jets released QB Josh Johnson.

    Advice: Coupled with the release of Matt Flynn, it means the Jets are comfortable with Bryce Petty behind Ryan Fitzpatrick while Geno Smith (jaw) rehabs. It would be an unmitigated disaster were Petty forced into a game. Rotoworld.com 35 minutes ago

    Advice: Once described as the Jason Pierre-Paul of the offense because of his athleticism, Robinson has never been able to turn his athletic gifts into production on the field. He had five catches total in three seasons with the Giants. This move likely means Jerome Cunningham has made the team. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

  • Decision to keep Robert Griffin not unanimous
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the decision to keep Robert Griffin III on the active roster was not unanimous.

    Advice: "Not everyone in their building is happy about it," Schefter wrote. The Redskins are pushing the organizational harmony narrative hard, but no one is buying it. Griffin will be a constant shadow hanging over whoever is starting games this season, and if he ends up suffering a serious injury, Washington will be on the hook for his $16.155 million fifth-year option. Keeping him on the roster was not the right decision. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:05 am

    The NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported the Redskins plan to keep Robert Griffin III (concussion) on their 53-man roster.

    Advice: The Washington Post also expects Griffin to stick on the team. The Redskins are taking a financial risk by retaining Griffin. His $16.155 million fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning he has to be able to pass a physical when the Redskins decide to release him next offseason. Griffin was examined by an independent neurologist late this week, but neither he nor the team have been given the results of that exam. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:11 am

    Advice: The Bears have been guarding injury information like it is the secret ingredient in Coke, but it appears Royal will be good to go for Week 1. The situation is even murkier around Alshon Jeffery (calf). If Jeffery cannot play against the Packers, Royal would be a great DFS play. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:50 am

  • Terrelle Pryor requires a 'leap of faith'
    Browns coach Mike Pettine said keeping WR Terrelle Pryor on the roster required "a leap of faith."

    Advice: It is a leap the Browns should take. Pryor's switch from quarterback to wide receiver has been slowed by a hamstring injury which kept him out most of the exhibition season, but healthy or not Pryor was never going to become a tactician this preseason. The Browns brought him into camp because he is an elite athlete at a position where Cleveland has few. That is the same reason they should keep him on the final roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:39 am

    Advice: When/if RGIII gains final clearance is when the real drama will begin. Once deemed healthy, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2012 draft can be waived. It remains a mystery why the team originally said Griffin had been cleared last week only to back track, but so is life in Daniel Snyder's Washington. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:43 pm

  • Pryor touches ball twice in preseason finale
    Terrelle Pryor wasn't targeted in Thursday's preseason finale, but rushed twice for nine yards.

    Advice: Limited by a hamstring issue for the past month, Pryor was making his preseason debut. The Browns have insisted all summer that Pryor is a strict wideout, but both of his touches came as the quarterback on read options. Pryor did do some blocking as a wideout, and even served as the punt protector. Although Pryor has barely practiced this summer, and tonight's work came with deep reserves, he's looking like a good bet for the Browns' 53-man roster. A team with this little talent can't afford to let a blue-chip athlete like Pryor go. Pryor is currently off the re-draft radar, but that could change over the season's first few games.

  • Terrelle Pryor active on Thursday evening
    Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is active for Thursday's preseason finale, but will come off the bench.

    Advice: Pryor is expected to be "limited" as a reserve. He shouldn't get more than a token series or two. If Pryor makes the 53-man roster, it will be because he was just that good in the offseason program. He's seen next to no live action since the start of training camp. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:31 pm

    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.

    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.

  • Terrelle Pryor expected to play Thursday
    Browns WR Terrelle Pryor is expected to play in the team's fourth preseason game.

    Advice: It will be Pryor's first NFL game action as a wide receiver. A good showing could earn him a spot on the final roster, though the Browns may decide to keep Pryor on the roster based on physical upside alone. With Josh Gordon suspended, Pryor has the most interesting athletic profile in the Browns' receiver corps. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:29 am

  • RGIII era officially over in Washington D.C.
    Robert Griffin III has been benched.

    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 trade or release is best for all parties involved, and the sooner, the better. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:00 am

  • Thursday not 'make or break' for Pryor
    Browns coach Mike Pettine said the fourth preseason game is not "make or break" for WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring).

    Advice: Pryor has missed the entire preseason slate after going down with a hamstring injury early in camp, and Pettine said last week the window was closing on him making the team. Pettine appears to have softened that stance, perhaps because Pryor represents the most athletic upside in the Browns' nondescript receiving corps. Pryor's spot on the final roster is still very much up in the air. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:58 am

    Advice: La Canfora confirmed ESPN's report the team was informed Kirk Cousins would be the Week 1 starter, but he denied the team was actively trying to trade Griffin. Despite the lack of trade talk, La Canfora called Griffin's future with the organization "murky at best." Griffin's $16.155 million 2016 option is only guaranteed for injury, so it would be in the Redskins' best interests to keep him out of harm's way this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:16 am

    The Washington Post reports Redskins owner Dan Snyder is not blocking a trade of Robert Griffin III.

    Advice: A report from ESPN suggested coach Jay Gruden and GM Scot McCloughan would like to move on from Griffin, but they were meeting resistance from ownership. 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. It would probably be best for all involved if Griffin moved on, but it is hard to see Washington cutting a quarterback they traded the farm for just three years ago. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:23 am

  • Snyder, McCloughan agree on Griffin?
    Citing multiple sources, Profootballtalk.com reports "no schism exists" between the Redskins' front office and owner Dan Snyder regarding the future of Robert Griffin III in Washington.

    Advice: A previous ESPN report strongly hinted Redskins management and coaches want to move on from RG3, but are "meeting resistance from team ownership." 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. Based on Snyder's track record, that is arguably difficult to buy. Either way, Griffin's future in Washington is clear as mud. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:40 pm

    Advice: It's no secret owner Dan Snyder played a major role in spoiling RG3, resulting in clashes with both the Shanahan and Gruden coaching staffs. It now sounds like GM Scot McCloughan is on board with cutting ties on Griffin, but Snyder isn't letting the move happen. Schefter reports the Skins have gone so far as to shop RG3 on the trade market, "but have found no interest." A split between the Redskins' organization and Griffin seems imminent.

  • Terrelle Pryor sitting out 3rd preseason game
    Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is sitting out Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal.

    Advice: Pryor has resumed practicing, but his conditioning isn't up to speed. With the Browns' starters unlikely to see much, if any, action in next week's exhibition finale, it means Pryor will end the summer with no meaningful snaps as he makes the transition from quarterback. Pryor has the high-end athleticism the Browns lack basically everywhere else on offense, but he could be too raw for a spot on the 53-man roster. If the Browns keep him, it will be because he flashed convincingly in the offseason program. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:25 pm

    Advice: Pryor needs it. After missing the majority of the month with a hamstring injury, Pryor sounded "dejected" at practice this week with the injury taking its toll on him. Pryor just needs to get on the field Saturday and show something -- anything, really -- to earn a 53-man roster spot.

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.
