Preston Williams secured just one-of-six targets for seven yards in the Dolphins’ second preseason game Friday against the Buccaneers.

17 August 2019

Williams obliterated the Falcons in last week’s preseason opener (4-97-0 on five targets), but he didn’t do anything of the sort Friday as the Bucs stonewalled him at every turn. Some of the wounds were self-inflicted as Williams dropped a pair of freebies. The undrafted rookie nearly came down with a miraculous touchdown off a deflection but was ruled out of bounds. This was undoubtedly a setback, though Williams’ roster odds are still looking good heading into next week’s dress rehears ...

Daniel Jones completed 11-of-14 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown while also rushing once for no gain in the Giants’ second preseason game Friday versus the Bears.

17 August 2019

Jones took one sack for a loss of 12 yards. He was the second quarterback to see the field after ceding the opening series to Eli Manning. The sixth overall pick in April’s draft did a lot right on Friday, opening the second quarter with a 40-yard deep bomb to Cody Latimer before finding T.J. Jones open in the back corner of the end zone for a 15-yard TD to close out the first half. Unfortunately those highlights were mostly overshadowed by his two turnovers. Jones got ahead of himself on a bo ...

Curtis Samuel delivered one catch for 13 yards on three targets in the Panthers’ second preseason game Friday against Buffalo.

16 August 2019

It was a quiet evening for Samuel, who has been a standout throughout training camp. To be fair, Samuel was playing without Cam Newton, who the Panthers are keeping under wraps. Both of his incompletions came on poor throws from Kyle Allen, who had a dreadful night under center (32 yards on 4-of-11 passing). Considered a trendy breakout candidate in fantasy circles, the third-year receiver will be back at it Thursday for the Panthers’ dress rehearsal against New England.

NFL reinstated Patriots WR Josh Gordon.

16 August 2019

This is one of the quickest turnarounds we've seen from the league after Gordon applied for reinstatement earlier this month. Gordon missed the final two games of the regular season and three playoff games last year, so his latest violation only resulted in a five-week suspension. Starting this weekend, Gordon can attend meetings and participate in individual workouts. He needs to clear some hurdles before he can practice and play in games, but this is obviously great news. Gordon's return is a ...

Alfred Blue is sidelined with an ankle sprain.

16 August 2019

This sounds day to day, but sprains can come with multi-week timetables. Blue had been running as the Jaguars' No. 2 back at training camp. The injury opens up reps for Ryquell Armstead and Thomas Rawls.

Seahawks OG Jordan Simmons underwent knee surgery.

16 August 2019

It's the second knee surgery for Simmons, who finished his rookie year on IR. He's doubtful for Week 1. Simmons is likely headed to IR again, though it's possible he could return later this season.

Saquon Barkley isn't expected to play in Friday's preseason game.

16 August 2019

Barkley also sat out the opener. The Giants are smartly avoiding injuries with their star running back. Barkley's only preseason action will come at next week's dress rehearsal.

Bengals OG Christian Westerman is retiring from the NFL after three seasons.

16 August 2019

It's the second offensive lineman the Bengals have lost to retirement with Clint Boling forced out due to health issues. Westerman was in the mix to start, so this is a blow for Cincy. John Jerry and Michael Jordan will compete opposite RG John Miller.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

16 August 2019

He didn't make the trip to Hawaii with his teammates. Smith is reportedly dealing with back stiffness, though beat reporter Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News hears the injury is "not considered serious." Smith achieved All-Pro status for the fifth time last season while earning PFF's No. 10 pass-blocking grade among tackles. We're guessing he'll be fine for the Cowboys' opener in three weeks.

Seahawks OG Mike Iupati aggravated a calf injury during a recent workout.

16 August 2019

The calf issue has kept Iupati from practicing this week. He's also been battling a sprain foot, an injury that has bothered him since OTAs. A four-time Pro Bowler at guard, Iupati joined the Seahawks on a free-agent deal this offseason following a four-year stint in Arizona.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn isn't sure if S Derwin James (foot) will return this season.

16 August 2019

"I would like for him to play in 2019, but I don’t know that for sure," said Lynn. Per Josina Anderson of ESPN, James has already met with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, who was recommended by teammate Joey Bosa. Sports injury expert Dr. David Chao expects Jones to a miss of minimum of six weeks, though the more likely scenario is that he begins the year on injured reserve with a designation to return. It's a big loss for the Chargers' secondary.

49ers waived/injured CB Greg Mabin.

16 August 2019

That clears a roster spot for Quinten Rollins, who the Niners signed on Friday. Mabin appeared in 13 games for San Francisco last year including one start, recording 16 tackles and one forced fumble over 163 defensive snaps. He should resurface when healthy.

49ers DC Robert Saleh said FS Jimmie Ward (collarbone) won't be guaranteed the starting job when he returns to practice.

16 August 2019

Ward finally sees a light at the end of the tunnel after missing most of the offseason with a broken collarbone, though he won't be assured of a starting gig at free safety, where Tarvarius Moore has been a standout this offseason. "He's going to make it very difficult," said Saleh in praise of Moore, who contributed 23 tackles and a forced fumble over 232 snaps as a rookie in 2018. Ward has typically been productive when healthy, though injuries have cost him a combined 21 games over ...

Buccaneers fourth-round OLB Anthony Nelson is out with a sprained MCL.

16 August 2019

The injury is to his right knee. Nelson, who hasn't practiced since August 5, is looking at a 4-6 week absence. While the former Iowa Hawkeye seems likely to miss the remainder of Tampa Bay's preseason slate, he should be back sometime in the opening month, if not by Week 1.

Updating an earlier report, Chargers S Derwin James has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

16 August 2019

The Chargers aren't offering up much information at the moment, only acknowledging that James will "continue to be evaluated" and that his "course of treatment is still to be determined. James, a first-team All-Pro selection at safety during his debut 2018 campaign, suffered the injury at Friday's practice. It's been a rough few weeks for the Bolts, who are now without James, Keenan Allen (ankle), Melvin Gordon (contract holdout) and starting left tackle Russell Okung (blood clot) ...

Avery Williamson's MRI confirmed a torn ACL in his right knee.

16 August 2019

The injury occurred when Williamson collided with teammate Tevaughn Campbell during Thursday's preseason game in Atlanta. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Williamson will miss all of 2019. It's a big loss for the Jets as Williamson, the team's defensive play-caller, was credited with a team-high 121 tackles last season while earning PFF's No. 8 run-stopping grade among inside linebackers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Amari Cooper is dealing with a strained heel.

16 August 2019

That would explain why Cooper hasn't been practicing. This falls in line with a report from Maven Sports' Mike Fisher, who previously noted that Cooper had been dealing with "plantar fascia irritation." Cooper will probably lay low during the preseason, but there's no concern over his Week 1 status. The contract-year wideout cleared 1,000 yards receiving for the third time last season, averaging an impressive 80.6 yards per game after his midseason trade to Dallas. He's going off the b ...

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah injured his groin in workouts earlier this week.

16 August 2019


Chargers S Derwin James was seen in a walking boot on Friday.

16 August 2019

Adrian Phillips was working as the first-team strong safety with James absent from Friday's practice. Per Daniel Popper of The Athletic, the injury is to his right ankle. The 2018 first-rounder was as good as advertised last season, garnering All-Pro status as a rookie. Losing James for any amount of time would be a huge blow to the Chargers' secondary.
