Browns CB Tramon Williams expects to reclaim his starting job.
Williams missed Friday’s preseason game with a toe injury. He’s still listed as the starter on the Browns’ depth chart, but has been practicing in the slot. Jamar Taylor is the favorite open the season opposite Joe Haden.
Jordan Howard rushed four times for eight yards and caught one pass for four yards in the Bears' third preseason game.
Howard did not see the field until late in the third quarter, working behind Jeremy Langford, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Ka'Deem Carey. Although he was expected to be an important member of the backfield rotation earlier this offseason, the fifth-round rookie now looks destined to spend the early part of his career riding the bench. He is not worth a look in redraft leagues.
Bears QB Connor Shaw suffered a serious leg injury Saturday against the Chiefs.
Shaw suffered what looked like a broken ankle late in the fourth quarter. His leg was placed in an air cast before he was carted off the field. He is likely done for the season. Shaw had been one of the few bright spots for the Bears, completing 5-of-7 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown. Brian Hoyer, who was shaken up after falling hard on his elbow earlier in the game, replaced him at quarterback.
Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (concussion) has been ruled out of Saturday's preseason game.
The Jets are playing it safe with Enunwa. He should be fully healthy for Week 1.
Ka'Deem Carey rushed four times for nine yards and caught one pass for 10 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.
His one catch was a nice fourth-down conversion in the third quarter. Carey was the third back through the rotation Saturday, working behind Jeremy Langford and Jacquizz Rodgers but ahead of rookie Jordan Howard. He will not see any fantasy value in that role, but he would be a name to remember if something happened to Langford.
Giants CB Eli Apple will see reps with the first team in the third preseason game.
Apple had a strong preseason debut before going down with a leg/knee injury. He’s still behind Leon Hall, but the Giants want to see how ready he is to contribute. Apple could eventually push Hall into a hybrid safety role.
Kevin White caught 1-of-4 targets for three yards Saturday against the Chiefs.
White had a rough day, dropping a screen pass in the third quarter and running what looked like a bad route on the next play. White has yet to top one catch or six yards in a game this preseason and has been limited to mostly screen passes. It looks like he still has a long way to go, but his upside is worth the risk in the eighth round.
Alshon Jeffery hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 18 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.
Jeffery had a rough afternoon, dropping at least two passes including what would have been a long gain in the first half. He redeemed himself somewhat with a great catch to start the second half, but it was a bad day for the entire offense. Despite his struggles Saturday, Jeffery should return back-end WR1 value as long as he is healthy.
