The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette expects Eli Rogers to open the season as the Steelers' No. 3 receiver.

Bouchette calls Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey "backups" behind Rogers, Markus Wheaton, and Antonio Brown. It's possible Bouchette's mind could change after Pittsburgh's third preseason game, where Ben Roethlisberger will see his first action this August. At this moment, however, Rogers is in the driver's seat to start in the slot in Week 1, with Wheaton moving outside.

Coach Sean Payton called out second-year KR/RB Marcus Murphy for his fumbling issues.

In June, Murphy said he hoped to earn an offensive role this season, but he's closer to being cut than playing snaps with Drew Brees. Murphy's fumbles have been evident in practice, and he's also put the ball on the ground twice through two preseason games. Murphy will never be an offensive weapon.

According to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official website, Jared Cook has "developed a rapport" with Aaron Rodgers the past two weeks.

Cook was activated from the PUP list two weeks ago from today, and in his first practice with the team, he and Rodgers hooked up for numerous touchdowns in team drills. Hodkiewicz also reports Cook has "caught everything" in practice. Cook has a good chance to set or come close to career-best marks in Green Bay, especially with touchdowns. His current career-high is five.

Thomas Rawls (ankle) won't play in Thursday's preseason game.

Missing Seattle's regular season dress rehearsal is far from ideal, but also entirely expected. Rawls is still locked in as the Seahawks' primary early-down banger, but is facing serious heat from a resurgent Christine Michael. Rawls needs to be on his game from Week 1, something that will be a challenge after barely practicing this offseason.

Asked about Seth Roberts' training camp, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he's been "OK."

Del Rio hinted he hasn't been thrilled with his No. 3 wideout's effort this summer. "I think he's starting to feel pushed a little bit, which is what we'd like to have," Del Rio said. Roberts' job isn't in danger, as there's no one who could realistically "push" him. Hopefully the third-year UDFA has gotten the message. Roberts scored five touchdowns on 55 targets last season, and drew praise from Derek Carr earlier this summer.

Giants CB Leon Hall has taken "some" snaps at safety since signing earlier this month.

The longtime veteran has never played safety, but it makes sense as the Giants scramble for depth in their thin safety corps. Having Hall play the occasional snap at the back could kill two birds with one stone, as it would create more of a path to playing time for first-round CB Eli Apple.

Suspended free agent RB Karlos Williams visited the Jets.

It's Williams' first-known visit since he cleared waivers on Monday. ESPN New York's termed the visit as "due diligence," and says a deal is not imminent. Suspended and overweight, Williams will be signing at the nadir of his value if he finds a new home this week. His best course of action may be getting his body right and building his extremely slim leverage.
