WGN Radio's Adam Hoge reports Kyle Long is a "legitimate option at right tackle" for the Bears.

"He’s had plenty of practice at both guard and tackle," coach John Fox said. There was speculation Long would kick outside all summer, but that speculation seemed to die after Long spent most of training camp at right guard. With Jordan Mills and Charles Leno struggling at tackle, perhaps moving Long to tackle and slotting Vladimir Ducasse in a right guard is the Bears' best move. Long has been a Pro Bowler at right guard each of his first two years in the league.

The New York Post said Jets RB Chris Ivory is the "unquestioned starter."

Ivory's preseason usage has told the same story. He has dominated carries with the first-team offense, ceding just third-down work to Bilal Powell. With Steven Ridley (knee) likely headed to the reserve/PUP and Zac Stacy not a real threat, Ivory is a great bet to surpass the 198 carries he saw last season.

Bills waived CB Ross Cockrell.

Cockrell was a fourth-round pick out of Duke last year, but ended up playing just 11 snaps as a rookie. Under a new regime, Cockrell was no longer on scholarship. He was a 49-game starter in college and had a nose for the ball as a plus-size (6-foot, 190) playmaker, but was getting beat often in training camp.

Chiefs third-round WR Chris Conley ran with the starting offense at Monday's practice.

With Albert Wilson (shoulder) hurt, Conley is getting his chance to run opposite Jeremy Maclin. Before Wilson even got hurt last week, he was having a really quiet camp and preseason while Conley caught 3-of-5 targets for 30 yards in his first action of the preseason over the weekend. Wilson has speed, but isn't very big. Conley (6'3/205) was a draftnik favorite as a metrics freak with 4.35 wheels, 45-inch vertical, and 11-foot-7 broad jump. He's in the mix for No. 2 duties.

Raiders waived WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

The former Patriots standout undrafted rookie from 2013 caught just 4-of-11 targets this preseason for 27 scoreless yards. He also dropped two passes. The Raiders have a ton of No. 3/4 receivers behind Amari Cooper, and Thompkins is one of the odd ones out. Neither big nor fast, Thompkins is a possession-type.

Updating a previous item, Patriots waived/injured WR Josh Boyce.

It was initially reported that Boyce was flat-out cut. Instead, he'll pass through waivers and head to the Patriots I.R. list, where he'll either miss the entire season or later be released with an injury settlement. It'll probably be the latter.
Aug 31 - 7:15 PM

Raiders waived RB Trent Richardson.

Oakland will eat the $600,000 it guaranteed Richardson back in March. We figured the Colts' release of Richardson would serve as a swift kick in the pants for the former No. 3 overall pick, but he ended up reporting to Raiders camp overweight and didn't impress anyone in the organization this preseason, rushing for 42 scoreless yards on 15 carries (2.8 YPC) and breaking one measly tackle. Richardson is running out of chances, but we expect him to get one more.
Aug 31 - 6:43 PM

Ravens placed S Matt Elam, OLB Steven Means, TE Allen Reisner, and CB Chris Greenwood on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

Elam tore his biceps early in training camp and will miss all of his third NFL season. He was ineffective at both slot corner and safety in 2014.
