    Jaguars released RB Jonas Gray with an injury settlement.

    Advice: That takes him off the Jaguars' injured reserve list. Gray hurt his quad early on in training camp and it's unclear when he might return. He managed just 54 yards on 14 carries in his two games for Jacksonville last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:19 pm

  • Mularkey: We will get Derrick Henry on field
    Coach Mike Mularkey promised Wednesday that the Titans will "find ways" to get Derrick Henry on the field this season.

    Advice: Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.

But it's good to hear it straight from the coach's mouth, even if that coach sees things through rose-colored glasses. Rawls resumed practicing without limitations three days ago.

  • Kenyan Drake could open season on I.R.?
    The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson believes third-round RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) could open the season on injured reserve.

    Advice: New I.R. rules implemented this season allow teams to stash players on the injured list and then later make a call which one they want to activate off "designated for return." Jackson thinks it could be Drake in an effort to get all four of Arian Foster, Jay Ajayi, Isaiah Pead, and Damien Williams on the opening day, 53-man roster.

    Advice: According to Berman, new OC Frank Reich said that every week during meetings, the coaching staff would ask, "How can we get this guy the football?" regarding Sproles. The 33-year-old caught 55 passes last season, but could jump back up into the 65-75 range similar to his New Orleans days. Ryan Mathews isn't going to play on third downs, leaving all of that work to Sproles. Reich was the Chargers' OC last season when Danny Woodhead caught 80 balls. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:46 am

After ballooning to as much as 261 pounds in the spring, Williams was slapped with a four-game suspension for violating the substance-abuse policy. Still, Rex Ryan said at the beginning of August Williams' roster spot was safe, so it is possible another infraction led to this release. Mike Gillislee is now locked in as LeSean McCoy's backup with Jonathan Williams and Reggie Bush likely to be involved as well. Considering Williams scored nine total touchdowns on just 104 rookie touches, another team will definitely take a shot on the talented 23-year-old. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:02 am

  • Cowboys' goal is for Zeke to play next week
    Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said "the goal" is for Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) to play in the third preseason game.

    Advice: "It looks good right now," Jones said. Elliott was able to return to practice Tuesday, so it would be surprising if he was not ready to go by next Thursday night's game. We are still happy to grab Elliott at his first-round draft cost, but a good, healthy showing in the dress rehearsal would not hurt. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:16 pm

  • Gruden doesn't think Matt Jones out for long
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he does not expect Matt Jones (AC sprain) to miss much time.

    Advice: "I don't think it'll be a long injury," were Gruden's exact words, before adding the injury was a "slight separation of his AC joint." Jones is certainly done for the preseason, but it sounds like he has a good chance to be ready for Week 1. Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley handled first-team work after Jones went down. Rookie Keith Marshall saw all of his carries in the second half. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:15 pm

    Keith Marshall rushed 10 times for 26 yards in the Redskins' second preseason game Friday night.

    Advice: Despite Matt Jones going down with a shoulder injury in the first quarter, Marshall did not see the field until the second half and looked to be clearly behind Rob Kelley on the depth chart. Marshall did have a couple nice runs early in the half, but the holes closed up quickly as the night wore on. With Jones questionable for Week 1, Marshall has an opportunity for an early role, but he has a lot of work to do. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:37 pm

    Advice: This is perhaps the best possible outcome after Jones landed hard on his left shoulder at the end of a first quarter run. He returned to the sidelines with his arm in a sling in the second half. Jones is certainly done for the preseason, but it is possible he is back for Week 1.

The Bears promised a "hot hand" approach at running back earlier this offseason but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Rawls returned to practice two weeks ago and resumed taking 11-on-11 reps this week, although he isn't a full participant yet.

  • Jeremy Langford hangs 8-55-1 line on Patriots
    Jeremy Langford rushed eight times for 55 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' second preseason game against the Patriots.

    Advice: Through two preseason games, Langford has operated as the Bears' clear-cut No. 1 back. He handled every snap with the first-team offense in the exhibition opener, and did so again tonight before being replaced by Jacquizz Rodgers deep into the second quarter when Brian Hoyer came in at quarterback. Langford's rushing line was pumped up by a 34-yard gain, but he looked explosive with his cuts, and the offseason weight-gain hasn't slowed him down.

  • Patriots just being cautious with Dion Lewis?
    The Boston Herald believes the Patriots could hold Dion Lewis (ACL) out of practice for the duration of training camp, but that he would still be ready for Week 1.

    Advice: Lewis suited up for minicamp, but has yet to pad up in August, and his return doesn't appear to be in sight. Reporter Jeff Howe believes it could simply be a matter of the Pats saving Lewis' bullets for the regular season. Lewis' career has been derailed time and again by injury, not just last year's torn ACL. The Pats could have decided any exposure to summer reps is an unnecessary risk. This being the Pats, there's no way to know their true motivations for sure. Lewis is a high-risk, high-reward RB2. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:45 am

    Advice: The Chiefs were expected to bring Charles along very slowly, but he was already participating in 9-on-7 drills during Thursday's practice.

    Dion Lewis (ACL, active/PUP) has yet to practice in training camp.

    Advice: Even for the notoriously secretive Patriots, this is an odd situation. Lewis was able to participate and reportedly looked good at minicamps in June, and there have not been any reports of a setback. Still, he has not even been seen on the practice field during camp, and there have been murmurs of him opening the season on the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games. That still appears unlikely, but the concern grows with every missed practice. Lewis still has the upside to be drafted as a fringe RB2, but he is a risky pick. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:38 am

Albeit against Atlanta's deep reserves, Kelley shined with 40 yards on seven carries and two catches for 13 yards. Kelley stands 5-foot-11, 226 and ran a 4.68 forty at Tulane's Pro Day.

    Advice: He's now behind Matt Jones, Chris Thompson, and undrafted rookie "Robert Kelley." Marshall received five carries against the Falcons last Thursday night, but turned them into negative-one yards rushing. The offensive line was part of the problem, but Marshall showed a tendency to try to bounce every run outside.

  • C.J. Prosise on the Seahawks' roster bubble?
    KJR Seattle's Curtis Crabtree believes third-rounder C.J. Prosise's health -- or lack thereof -- has put him in danger of falling out of the Seahawks' backfield rotation.

    Advice: In a roster breakdown, Crabtree listed Prosise as on the "bubble," but it doesn't seem to be as grave as that. Prosise simply hasn't been able to stay healthy since he was picked 90th overall in April, battling a hip flexor in the spring and now missing two weeks with a hamstring injury.
