  Chargers | Dontrelle Inman back in the fold    Tue Aug 20, 07:07 PM

The Los Angeles Chargers signed free agent WR Dontrelle Inman (Patriots) Tuesday, Aug. 20, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Inman was with the Chargers from 2014-2017 and has plenty of experience catching passes from Philip Rivers. He's now back to compete for a spot on the depth chart behind Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin.

  Cowboys | Other extensions not imminent in Big D?    Tue Aug 20, 06:19 PM

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday, Aug. 20, is doesn't feel like there's any real movement on contract extensions for QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott or WR Amari Cooper, according to David Helman of DallasCowboys.com. Jones added things could move fast.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have some big-money deals to hand out, and they are dragging their feet at this time...at least with these three players. On Tuesday, the Cowboys signed LB Jaylon Smith to a new five-year, $64 million extension. We'll see if there's movement on any of the 'big 3' in the near future.

  Broncos | Noah Fant dealing with ankle sprain    Tue Aug 20, 05:24 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) was diagnosed with a 'mild' ankle sprain Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Fant might miss some time with this injury. He went down with the injury on Monday night against the 49ers. It doesn't seem like a serious injury, but the Broncos should be careful with their 2019 first-round pick. Fant could be a big part of their passing game in 2019.

  49ers | Jerick McKinnon still limited to individual work    Tue Aug 20, 04:43 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) is not expected to take part in team drills this week as he continues to wait for his injured knee to respond to platelet-rich plasma injection he had 17 days ago.

Footballguys view: McKinnon might be able to participate in drills next week, and we think he's unlikely to be ready for the start of the regular season. The 49ers will use Tevin Coleman as their primary back with Matt Breida backing him up. McKinnon might begin the season on Injured Reserve.

  Eagles | Jordan Howard not conceding much    Tue Aug 20, 04:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard has 'ran the ball quite well throughout camp,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt, who concedes that rookie Miles Sanders will 'almost certainly' overtake Howard at some point. However, Rosenblatt expects Howard will stay play a role and be one of the team's top options when it comes to short-yardage situations and in the red zone.

Footballguys view: Howard can be the banger for the team with Sanders working more as a 'lightning' type of back. If you play in a PPR league, then Sanders has more value because of his receiving ability. Howard has a current ADP of RB37 (8.05) and Sanders is at RB28 (6.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Demaryius Thomas cleared to practice    Tue Aug 20, 04:17 PM

New England Patriots WR Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) was activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Getting activated off the PUP list means the Patriots don't think Thomas will miss six weeks to begin the season. He might not be ready for Week 1, but Thomas feels like he could be. With Josh Gordon returning, any potential fantasy value Thomas had (if healthy) takes a hit.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny eyeing bigger Year 2 role    Tue Aug 20, 03:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has routinely flashed the ability to 'make one-handed grabs with the same ease as some of the NFL's stickiest-fingered receivers' and is expected to be a bigger factor than he was during his rookie season, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Penny didn't stand out as much as expected during his rookie season. Penny echoed sentiments from Seahawks RB coach Chad Morton that he and Chris Carson can become the same kind of one-two punch the New Orleans Saints enjoyed with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram over the last two seasons.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to sit out practice another week    Tue Aug 20, 02:44 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) will not participate in practice for at least another week, according to head coach Frank Reich, who noted Luck's issue is a matter of 'full-speed movement versus pain threshold.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are nervous about this Luck injury...and for good reason. Missing another week of practice further puts his status for Week 1 in question. We'll see if Luck can actually get out there for practice during the final week of the preseason.

  Cardinals | Hakeem Butler suffers serious hand injury    Tue Aug 20, 02:27 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler (hand) was diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in his hand and is a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the big-bodied rookie here. Butler was working to carve out a spot on the depth chart with fellow rookies Andy Isabella and Keesean Johnson. That trio of rookie is of course behind Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the pecking order. Butler is now likely to be shut down for at least half of his rookie season.

  Broncos | Drew Lock out for a while    Tue Aug 20, 02:19 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) was diagnosed with a badly sprained right thumb Tuesday, Aug. 20. Although he is out indefinitely, he will not require surgery, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Lock thought it was a mild sprain but it turns out to be a little more serious. This changes the Broncos pecking order at quarterback. Kevin Hogan is now more likely to make the 53-man roster as the backup to Joe Flacco. When Lock is healthy, he should take over that spot.

  Texans | Duke Johnson hits practice field    Tue Aug 20, 12:37 PM

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson (hamstring) practiced with his new team for the first time Tuesday, Aug. 20, after being sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see how Johnson is used as the change-of-pace back behind Lamar Miller. Johnson is a fine pass-catcher and he can make plays in space. That gives him flex appeal in PPR leagues. Stay tuned.

  Bears | David Montgomery has team swooning    Tue Aug 20, 12:28 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery has made an instant impression, and the team is 'in love' with him, according to Yahoo Sports' Terez A. Paylor, who just finished visiting the team's training camp. Paylor tweeted that Montgomery is 'a no-nonsense guy who takes football very seriously. The Bears love that, plus his receiving skills & make-you-miss. He will help this team immediately.'

Footballguys view: We love the intent that Montgomery runs with. He's your classic banger who can grind down a defense to get stronger as the game goes on. Montgomery isn't going to win with elusiveness but he wastes little motion as a runner and be be asked to carry a big workload. He should be the lead back for the Bears with Tarik Cohen serving as a pass-catching back.
