  • Giants get down to 75 players
    Giants waived WR K.J. Maye, DE Mike Rose, OL Shane McDermott, RB Marshaun Coprich, CB Joe Powell and DT Davon Coleman.

    Advice: Maye was a priority undrafted free agent out of Minnesota, but probably won't even make the practice squad after getting let loose at first cuts. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:00 pm

  • Broncos place Garrett Graham on I.R.
    Broncos placed TE Garrett Graham (shoulder) on injured reserve.

  • Kellen Moore (broken ankle) heads to I.R.
    Cowboys placed QB Kellen Moore on injured reserve with a broken ankle, ending his season.

    Advice: With Tony Romo out months with a back injury, the Cowboys need a new No. 2 quarterback behind rookie starter Dak Prescott. It's a major concern for a team with its usual playoff designs. Now 27, Moore will head into 2017 with 104 career attempts, all of which came last season. He's unlikely to ever get another chance at No. 2 duties. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm

  • Steelers hide Ladarius away on reserve/PUP
    Steelers placed TE Ladarius Green (ankle, headaches) on the reserve/PUP list.

    Advice: It was the expected outcome even though no one really knows what's truly sidelining the fifth-year tight end. Green and the Steelers both claim it is his ankle, but his agent said earlier this month that his ankle was fine. The headache rumors have not been completely debunked. Considering just how up in the air the situation is, Green shouldn't be stashed in re-draft leagues. Jesse James will open the year as the Steelers' pass catcher at tight end.

  • Cowboys getting calls for Darren McFadden
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys "have received calls" from teams wanting to acquire Darren McFadden, but Dallas "really wants to keep him."

    Advice: Dealing with a severe elbow injury, McFadden is expected to begin the season on the Cowboys' reserve/NFI list should he stay put in Dallas. If not, he could be available earlier if cleared by another team's doctors. Alfred Morris has played well enough this preseason to open 2016 as Ezekiel Elliott's clear backup. McFadden is owed $1.75 million in the last year of his deal. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:36 am

    Advice: North was a "name" free agent, but spent training camp banged up. Getting waived now means he probably won't be stashed on the practice squad. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:36 am

  • Doctson still doesn't have 'full-speed burst'
    Speaking Tuesday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Josh Doctson (Achilles') still doesn't have "full-speed burst," but will resume practicing "very soon."

    Advice: It's basically what we've been hearing from Gruden all summer about his first-round pick. Doctson seems to have no shot at suiting up for Week 1, and can best be clarified as "week to week." He's been battling the still-mysterious issue since June 1. The situation could change in a hurry, but Doctson begins the year without real value in re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:18 am

  • Kenyan Drake confirms hamstring not 100%
    Dolphins third-round RB Kenyan Drake confirmed his hamstring is not 100 percent healthy.

    Advice: Drake will play in the preseason finale, but he is still feeling the effects of a hamstring injury which has limited him all offseason. If it continues to bother him, it would not be surprising if he opens the season on injured reserve. Drake has zero redraft value. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:34 am

    Advice: They also placed CB Leonard Johnson on PUP, costing him the first six games. Byrd has been a t-shirt and shorts all-star in spring practices before, but never made noise in Carolina. The Andy Lee trade made Scifres expendable. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:54 am

  • Kenyan Drake to play preseason finale
    Dolphins rookie RB Kenyan Drake will play in the preseason finale.

    Advice: It'll be Drake's first exhibition-game action. Drake has been plagued by hamstring injuries since OTAs and dating back to Alabama, but is finally healthy and was reportedly making some plays in the passing game at Sunday's practice. As a third-round pick, Drake's roster spot should be assured. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:35 pm

  • Garrett Graham may lose roster spot
    Broncos TE Garrett Graham is in danger of losing his roster spot.

    Advice: A replacement-level talent, Graham's history with Gary Kubiak might not save him after missing almost all of camp with a shoulder injury. Virgil Green has stepped forward as the Broncos' primary receiving tight end, while John Phillips is a better blocker. 2015 third-round pick Jeff Heuerman will also make the team.

  • Ladarius Green 'holding out hope' for Week 1
    Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, headaches) is "holding out hope" he'll be ready for Week 1, but acknowledges his rehab has gone "very slow."

    Advice: It's still unclear what Green is even "rehabbing." He's adopted the team's party line that he's not dealing with headaches, but his own agent has said it's not his ankle. It's a ridiculously-muddled situation, one that makes Green a no-go as anything other than a risk/reward TE2. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:32 pm

  • 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. Drake has missed a ton of practice time with a pulled hammy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:32 am

  • 'Total expectation' Doctson ready for Week 1
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden has "total expectation" Josh Doctson (Achilles) will be ready for Week 1.

    Advice: "He did the route tree today, which is very positive," Gruden said Tuesday. "I have total expectation that he’s going to be ready Week 1, possibly the fourth preseason game, but we’ll still see. Like I said, it’s a new injury to me." Gruden also refused to rule out the reserve/PUP list in the same press conference, but it seems like coachspeak in the full context of his comments. The Redskins open the season 20 days from today.

  • Josh Doctson not yet ruled out for finale
    The Redskins haven't ruled Josh Doctson (Achilles') out for their final preseason game.

    Advice: It would ultimately be a surprise were Doctson to suit up. Coach Jay Gruden was as vague as possible on Doctson's status Tuesday, saying he expected him to be ready for Week 1 while still refusing to rule out the reserve/PUP list. Reserve/PUP is the worst-case scenario, but the opener doesn't seem terribly likely. Even if he's ready, Doctson would have to be on a strict snap count. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:57 am

  • RB Drake won't play in third preseason game
    Despite returning to practice, Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) will sit out this week's regular season dress rehearsal.

    Advice: Drake "hopes" to see some action in the finale, and insists he'll be ready for Week 1. The oft-injured rookie has fallen behind Isaiah Pead on the depth chart. That's quite an inglorious way to begin an NFL career. Drake is off the re-draft radar. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:06 am

  • Kenyan Drake back at practice Tuesday
    Dolphins rookie RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday.

    Advice: The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reported Monday Drake was not expected back this week, so this is something of a surprise. In Salguero's defense, the rookie will likely reinjure the hamstring before the week is through. Drake is at best third on the depth chart in Miami. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:51 am

  • Kenyan Drake still not ready to practice
    The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins rookie RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) will not practice this week.

    Advice: Drake has been sidelined since August 5 with a hamstring injury. He will not be ready for the third preseason game on Thursday, and it is reasonable to question if he will be ready to go for the regular season. Injury-prone in college, Drake has already missed time with two injuries in his short NFL career. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 8:05 am

  • 'Possible' Doctson opens 2016 on reserve/PUP
    According to the Washington Post, "it remains possible" Redskins first-round pick Josh Doctson opens 2016 on the reserve/PUP list.

    Advice: Reserve/PUP would cost him the first six games. Battling an Achilles' injury since the early spring, Doctson has yet to practice in training camp. He's supposed to resume running this week. The Post reports the Redskins "remain hopeful" Doctson will return to practice soon and play in their preseason finale, but all of that is up in the air. For fantasy owners with upcoming 10- and 12-team drafts, Doctson should be scratched off cheatsheets. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 8:06 pm

  • Ladarius Green: Headache reports just rumors
    Steelers TE Ladarius Green (active/PUP) called reports he is sidelined by headaches just rumors.

    Advice: "I don't know what reports those are," Green said. "I am still on PUP because of my ankle." Green added his ankle is "getting better." To his point, Green did appear to be doing a little more work on a side field during practice this week. Green's status is still completely up in the air, but he did say he is "confident" he will play this season. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 1:22 pm
