  Saints | Keenan Lewis out 4-6 weeks    Wed Sep 2, 10:42 AM

New Orleans Saints CB Keenan Lewis (hip) had hip surgery Tuesday, Sept. 1, and will miss four to six weeks.

Footballguys view: The Saints will now be without their no1 cornerback for at least a month. It will impact the defense, as now they'll have to turn to guys like rookie Delvin Breaux and veteran Brandon Browner.

  Cowboys | Orlando Scandrick placed on IR    Tue Sep 1, 03:17 PM

Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) was placed on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 1. Scandrick underwent surgery Friday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: As expected, but this puts a huge dent in the secondary for the Cowboys. Starting Branden Carr and Morris Claiborne is not how they wanted to start the season. We see the unit as a low-end No. 2 defense or part of a committee.

  Buccaneers | Tim Jennings visiting Tampa    Tue Sep 1, 10:29 AM

Free-agent CB Tim Jennings (Bears) is visiting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Jennings is going to land somewhere, and potentially quickly. More than anything he'd make a solid slot corner which would fit if Tampa doesn't try to make too much more of him. Tampa has the players to be a very good defense but they are too risky to use as more than a spot start or part of a committee.

  Bears | Tim Jennings released by Chicago    Sun Aug 30, 07:15 PM

The Chicago Bears have released CB Tim Jennings Sunday, Aug. 30, according to a source informed of the team's plans.

Footballguys view: At one point, Jennings was a ballhawking corner making a fearsome cover 2 duo with Charles Tillman. Lovie Smith is gone, the Bears defense has switched to a 3-4 scheme, and Jennings is now looking for work.

  Bills | Stephon Gilmore injury update    Sat Aug 29, 06:06 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore (shoulder, head) was able to pass the concussion tests but will not return to the third preseason game because of a shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: No word on the severity of the shoulder injury yet. Without a concussion, Gilmore won't have to go through the league's protocol.

  Bills | Stephon Gilmore leaves game    Sat Aug 29, 05:02 PM

Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore (head) left the third preseason game early Saturday, Aug. 29, and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Footballguys view: If he was concussed, Gilmore is unlikely to return to action. He'd have to work through the concussion protocol in order to get back on the field.

  Titans | Jason McCourty will not rush back    Sat Aug 29, 10:57 AM

Tennessee Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin) hopes to be ready to play in Week 1 but will not rush back before he is healthy.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine McCourty will be ready for the regular-season opener. He did not rule out the possibility of sitting out until after the team's Week 4 bye.

  Browns | Terrelle Pryor has support    Fri Aug 28, 09:16 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) had shown enough in training camp prior to injuring his hamstring that he should make the team, WR Dwayne Bowe said, and CB Joe Haden compared Pryor physically to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson.

Footballguys view: Really, it's not like there is a murderer's row of talent at wide receiver for the Browns. Pryor is intriguing enough to tempt, but don't succumb. The quarterback situation is a mess, the offense looks terrible and he's likely got a learning curve in order to just be good. Keep an eye on him, but don't put him on your roster.

  Chargers | Eric Weddle likely will be held out    Fri Aug 28, 08:11 PM

San Diego Chargers SS Eric Weddle (neck) is not expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, because of neck soreness. Weddle should be fine for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Weddle is a key cog in this defense and the Chargers are smart to protect him. We don't expect him to appear in the final preseason game either. The overall defense is a bit shaky, so it's no more than a fantasy defense to use in tandem with another middle-of-the-road team.

  Titans | Blidi Wreh-Wilson will not play    Fri Aug 28, 05:43 PM

Tennessee Titans CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28, because of an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Tennessee is not a defense you want in fantasy unless you are in a really tight corner. Avoid it.

  Seahawks | Richard Sherman expected to play    Fri Aug 28, 03:34 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (hip) is expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: We don't expect him to put in close to a full game, as they need him for the season more than a preseason game. This is one of the top fantasy defenses in the game and is an easy call every Sunday.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins shining in practice    Thu Aug 27, 09:46 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins has been able to beat CB Stephon Gilmore in practice on multiple occasions, and Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News called Watkins the August MVP.

Footballguys view: We know how good Watkins is, but we also know how bad the guys throwing him the ball are. While he has the ability to be a WR1 in fantasy, his situation - poor quarterbacks, heavy run focus - leave him as a WR2.

  Colts | Greg Toler week-to-week    Thu Aug 27, 08:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts CB Greg Toler (neck) is considered week-to-week because of a neck injury he suffered in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: The Colts are hoping he can come back before the season really kicks off. Overall the team defense is just a No. 2 defense for fantasy purposes, and best paired with another unit.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas should be ready for Week 1    Thu Aug 27, 06:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) is on track to be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks secondary is not the same without him. Thomas is one of the best in the game at his position, and even coming back from a shoulder injury we expect him to play like his ferocious self.

  Falcons | Desmond Trufant likely to sit out    Thu Aug 27, 04:28 PM

Atlanta Falcons CB Desmond Trufant (shoulder) has participated in practice this week but likely will not play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: The Falcons defense won't change much without Trufant for this outing, and they would like him to be healthy for Week 1. This isn't a defense you want to roll out in fantasy anyway and we expect them to be underwhelming.

  Falcons | Two players will miss preseason game    Thu Aug 27, 04:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (hamstring) and SS William Moore (calf) will not play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Smith had some nice games last season but isn't a fantasy force, while Moore's absence won't impact the defense, which isn't expected to be a fantasy factor this season.

  Ravens | Will Hill signs two-year deal    Thu Aug 27, 02:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens FS Will Hill signed a two-year deal Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: The Ravens defense is a little bit of a question mark, and we have them ranked as a No. 2 team defense. Hill should help a little of he can stay out of trouble (he was suspended in all three of his previous seasons).

  Dolphins | Jamar Taylor out Thursday    Thu Aug 27, 11:13 AM

Miami Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor (quadriceps) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 27, and will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Taylor is slotted across from Brent Grimes, so they are likely being more cautious than anything else. This has the potential to be a solid secondary, but whomever is paired with Grimes will have their work cut out as they will see plenty of targets. We see Miami as a borderline starting team defense, or a very good unit to pair with another similar squad.

Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) was carted off the field in practice Tuesday, Aug. 25, and the early fears are that he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: This could be a brutal loss for the Dallas defense. Byron Jones will be forced to step up, but he's coming off an injury as well. We'll watch this carefully.

  Giants | Landon Collins feeling better    Tue Aug 25, 05:37 PM

New York Giants SS Landon Collins (knee) said his injured knee is feeling better and that he's ready to get back on the field. Collins added that he hopes to practice Tuesday, Aug. 25, or Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: The Giants are in need of good news, and this is at least a little bit of it. Collins was supposed to be a big part of the secondary and with as many injuries to the safeties as the Giants have, having him getting closer to the field is a big deal.

  Dolphins | Louis Delmas to IR    Tue Aug 25, 12:42 PM

Miami Dolphins FS Louis Delmas (knee) was placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 24, but could be able to play in the third preseason game if he is able to return to practice later in the week.

Footballguys view: The Browns are going to be cautious with their superstar corner. We think they may even hold Haden out of the dress rehearsal for the regular season--aka Week 3 of the preseason.

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin) is expected to miss a few games after undergoing groin surgery Monday, Aug. 24, according to sources.

Footballguys view: At this time, we could see McCourty miss at least the first week of the regular season. Keep that in mind when you're considering guys like Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson in Week 1 as the Buccaneers take on the Titans.
