Saints WR Willie Snead caught four balls for 56 yards in Sunday night's third preseason game.

Snead was the chain-moving receiver during Luke McCown's time on the field, running with the second-team offense opposite Brandon Coleman. Snead has been a ball-catching machine in Saints practices, according to beat reporters, and through three preseason games is up to an 8-117 receiving line. Snead stands 5-foot-11, 195, but ran 4.62 coming out of Ball State in 2014. He failed to make the 53-man roster in Browns camp last year. The Saints reportedly see some Lance Moore in Snead's skill set.

49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks (legal) is not expected to practice this week.

Brooks was sent home from joint practices with the Broncos last week and missed the third preseason game after being indicted on misdemeanor sexual battery charges. GM Trent Baalke released a statement saying Brooks would miss the preseason game, but he did not elaborate on his future with the team. Coach Jim Tomsula called the situation "day to day."

Jonathan Grimes rushed three times for 14 yards in the Texans' third preseason game.

Grimes was the second Texans tailback through the rotation, playing behind Alfred Blue and ahead of both Chris Polk and Kenny Hilliard. Grimes played briefly with both the Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett groups before exiting so the Texans could get longer looks at Polk and Hilliard. Through three preseason games, Grimes has 13 carries for 41 yards and three catches for 22 yards.

Vikings waived RB Joe Banyard.

An undrafted free agent in 2012, Banyard is a talented runner but has spent most of his career on Minnesota's practice squad. He did get offensive snaps in nine games last season, gaining 88 yards on 21 carries (4.2 YPC). Banyard should latch on with another team.

Vikings released TE Brandon Bostick.

The Vikings are going with Kyle Rudolph, MyCole Pruitt, and Chase Dixon instead. Bostick was claimed off waivers from the division-rival Packers all the way back in February. He failed to make it even to final cuts in Minnesota.

Cecil Shorts caught one pass for 12 yards in the Texans' third preseason game.

Shorts continued to run with the ones along with DeAndre Hopkins, breaking a tackle and picking up a first down on Houston's first drive. Through three exhibition games, Shorts has two catches for 70 yards and a touchdown. The fact that the oft-injured Shorts has remained healthy throughout training camp bodes particularly well. Shorts is a PPR sleeper in deeper leagues.

Josh Hill caught one pass for five yards in the Saints' third preseason game.

Playing behind Ben Watson but still working with the ones, Hill was targeted on an end-zone pass at the end of the Saints' opening drive, but the ball was thrown widely by Drew Brees. Hill continues to have all the appearances of a sub-package tight end and red-zone weapon, while Watson operates as New Orleans' every-down tight end. Through three preseason games, Hill has six catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.

Marques Colston went catch-less in the Saints' third preseason game.

Colston didn't play on the Saints' first snap of the game, but entered on the second play from scrimmage, manning slot receiver with Brandin Cooks and Brandon Coleman outside. Colston was targeted on a red-zone pass in the first quarter, but Drew Brees' throw was broken up by Texans ILB Brian Cushing. Colston may no longer technically be a starter, which is something of a concern for his playing time. Now 32 years old, Colston is not a great bet to improve significantly on last year's 59-902-5 receiving line.
