  Ravens | Javorius Allen fumbling away role?    Sun Aug 30, 07:57 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen fumbled the ball before crossing the goal line in his first game replacing RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee) as the backup running back against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 29. 'You have to hold on to the football,' head coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'It's just not possible to put runners out there that fumble the football. He's going to have other opportunities and chances going forward, and I really believe he's going to be a very good player. But, he's going to have to learn from that.'

  Browns | Thaddeus Lewis likely to start finale    Sun Aug 30, 07:36 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Thaddeus Lewis will likely start the preseason finale against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 3, if QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) can't play.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel's timetable unclear    Sun Aug 30, 07:24 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's status for the week leading up to the preseason finale against the Chicago Bears remains unclear, head coach Mike Pettine said Sunday, Aug. 30. 'I'll get the medical update today, just see what their plan is for him, when to start throwing again,' Pettine said. 'Given that the MRI was negative, we think rest will be the answer. To me, there's no need to think beyond that until we get to that point, and if it looks like it is more than that, then we'll address it appropriately.'

Footballguys view: The Browns would like to get some more tape on Manziel, but they don't to risk his season status. He is one of the best bets among backup quarterbacks to get a start this year.

  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.

  Titans | Justin Hunter not converting chances    Sun Aug 30, 07:09 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter has two receptions on nine targets during the preseason, and last year, he had the third-worst success rate among receivers that played at least 25% of their team's snap, catching 28 of the 66 passes intended for him.

Footballguys view: The Titans offense might not produce one player that we start in fantasy leagues as Plan A. If they do, it will likely be Kendall Wright as a volume PPR play or Delanie Walker as a high floor/low ceiling TE1. Hunter looks like an unmitigated bust at this point.

  Packers | Randall Cobb has AC joint sprain    Sun Aug 30, 04:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain, after undergoing further tests Sunday, Aug. 30, according to a source. He suffered the injury in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: It's unclear whether Cobb will miss Week 1. Our Dr. Jene Bramel says "Excellent news. Good chance to play W1. Pain tolerance and range of motion will be keys."

  Browns | Terrelle Pryor may play    Sun Aug 30, 02:39 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) has a chance to play in the final preseason game, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: By most accounts, Pryor is going to have to play to make the team. If Pryor gets cut, it will be interesting to see if anyone claims him because his size/speed/athleticism combination is rare and he seemed like a natural wide receiver before hurting his hamstring.

  Browns | Duke Johnson suffers concussion    Sun Aug 30, 02:38 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (concussion) suffered a concussion during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. He is not expected to play in the final preseason game.

Footballguys view: The Browns have said they may sign a veteran running back with Johnson banged up and Shaun Draughn also injured right now. They are one of the few teams that didn't immediately shut down any notion of signing Ray Rice. Pierre Thomas is also still out there.

  Jets | Several players released    Sun Aug 30, 01:51 PM

New York Jets WR Saalim Hakim, WR Austin Hill, WR Jonathon Rumph and TE Matt LaCosse were released Sunday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: Hill was a rising star at Arizona before tearing an ACL in 2013. He hasn't seemed to get back to his previous level of competition and would be lucky to land on a practice squad somewhere at this point.

  Jets | Leonard Williams injury update    Sun Aug 30, 01:06 PM

  Rams | Tre Mason suffers injury    Sun Aug 30, 10:59 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) suffered a mild hamstring strain during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. He is not expected to play in the final preseason game.

Footballguys view: Matt Waldman favorite Malcolm Brown could make the team and even see significant action Week 1 against Seattle if Mason doesn't heal quickly or suffers a setback. This is Mason's second hamstring issue so far this year, so "mild" might be a relative term. Deep dynasty leaguers should take notice.

Chicago Bears DT Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and was in a walking boot after the game. DT Eddie Goldman (concussion) suffered a concussion during the game.

Footballguys view: Even without Jordy Nelson and maybe Randall Cobb in Week 1, Eddie Lacy and the Packers should have a field day with this Bears defense in Week 1.

  Jets | Leonard Williams to undergo MRI    Sun Aug 30, 10:31 AM

New York Jets DE Leonard Williams (knee) suffered a knee injury during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and is scheduled to undergo an MRI Sunday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: There is optimism that the injury is only a bone bruise and Mo Wilkerson said Williams told him he is okay. If the Jets are without Williams and Sheldon Richardson to open the season, Cleveland's matchup in Week 1 gets a lot easier.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman struggles Saturday    Sun Aug 30, 10:19 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for two yards on four carries during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. Coleman missed the first two preseason games because of an injury.

Footballguys view: We have some serious concerns about the Falcons offensive line. New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had great success with the running game in Cleveland early last year, but the Browns offensive line is one of the best in the league. Coleman's attractiveness as a mid-round target is in question.

  Falcons | Tony Moeaki sidelined    Sun Aug 30, 10:16 AM

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Moeaki (thigh) suffered a thigh injury during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Moeaki has never been able to stay healthy for long. If there's a surprise hit at tight end in this offense, it'll be Jacob Tamme.

  Bills | EJ Manuel, Tyrod Taylor play well    Sun Aug 30, 10:05 AM

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel went 7-for-8 for 170 yards and two touchdowns in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. QB Tyrod Taylor went 12-for-13 for 122 yards and a rushing touchdown during the game.

Footballguys view: This is more about the Steelers defense being bad than the Bills passing game being good. That being said, Taylor is a very intriguing QB2 because of his running ability and talented targets.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford aces preseason test    Sun Aug 30, 09:56 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford completed all 10 of his passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns during the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 29. 'I thought he was really poised out there, had a really good command of what we were doing, really located the football. I thought he played really well,' head coach Chip Kelly noted.

Footballguys view: Bradford looked as good as he has since his rookie year in St. Louis. His ability to stay healthy for the entire season is in question, but his ability to effectively pilot this offense is looking very good. He's worth a leadoff QB streaming pick after 10-12 quarterbacks are off of the board.

  Lions | Joique Bell progressing nicely    Sun Aug 30, 09:46 AM

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') has ramped up his return-to-play workouts in recent weeks and said he is 'getting close.' Head coach Jim Caldwell said Bell looks in good shape and hinted the running back will be ready for Week 1.

Footballguys view: There's no way that this was the plan when Bell had achilles and knee surgery in January unless the achilles surgery was more serious than indicated or Bell had microfracture knee surgery. Either way, Bell is in danger of a steep decline this year. Keep Zach Zenner on your waiver wire speed dial or end of your bench in deep leagues.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers checks out    Sat Aug 29, 11:54 PM

Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (knee) is wearing a brace on his left knee and will have an MRI Sunday, Aug. 30, but he said that he is 'not too worried about it.'

Footballguys view: It sounds like this is a minor injury. That's good news for the Dolphins who will already be without starting left tackle Branden Albert for two games at the start of the regular season.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers injures hand    Sat Aug 29, 10:33 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (hand) went to the locker room with a trainer before halftime after hitting his hand against a defender's hand in a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Aug. 29.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton's injury not serious    Sat Aug 29, 09:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (neck) was removed as a precaution in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears Saturday, Aug. 29, head coach Marvin Lewis said.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bengals here. They can make a push for a playoff spot this year if Dalton is on the field. Going to backup A.J. McCarron may not yield positive results.

  Packers | Randall Cobb injures shoulder    Sat Aug 29, 09:50 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) exited a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29, and was taken to the locker room with a shoulder injury.

Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (knee) suffered a knee injury during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and is considered questionable to return.

  Browns | Duke Johnson, Dwayne Bowe start    Sat Aug 29, 07:29 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (hamstring) and WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) were in the starting lineup for the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Johnson is an exciting rookie running back to watch. He can make defenders miss in the open field, and Johnson is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. Right now, Johnson is coming off the board at RB39 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert (knee) will not play in either of the final two preseason games and is not expected to play until Week 3, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That's not terrible news for the Dolphins, but it's not great either. Jason Fox will take over as Ryan Tannehill's blind-side protector while Albert is out.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett will not play    Sat Aug 29, 06:58 PM

  Falcons | Julio Jones receives extension    Sat Aug 29, 06:57 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones agreed to terms with the team Saturday, Aug. 29, on a five-year contract extension worth $71.25 million, according to a source. The deal includes $47 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Jones has a slight advantage in average annual salary compared to the deals that Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas received earlier this year. Now that his contract situation is out of the way, Jones can go dominate on the field. We like him being moved around in the Kyle Shanahan offense, and Jones could push to be the no1 fantasy receiver in 2015.

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus (leg) is not playing in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, because of a sore leg.

Washington Redskins QBs Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III still don't know who will start Week 1, according to a source. It was previously reported that Cousins was expected to start Week 1 over Griffin.

Footballguys view: There are plenty of reporters around that team who indicate that Kirk Cousins is going to start in Week 1 of the regular season. It's seems to be up in the air right now, but we won't be shocked if Cousins is the starter for Washington when the regular season gets here.
