Ben Roethlisberger completed 15-of-24 passes for 157 yards, a touchdown and interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Big Ben's score, a 27-yard strike to Heath Miller, came deep into the second half against the Eagles' second-team defense. Roethlisberger and the Steelers' first-team offense struggled mightily in the first half, with Big Ben tossing a horrid pick on an ill-advised freelance. He also showed noticeably-little chemistry with No. 2 receiver Markus Wheaton. Barring a surprise appearance in the Steelers' preseason finale, Roethlisberger finishes August 24-of-37 for 328 yards, three scores and a pick. He's a low-end QB1 with top-eight upside.

Jordan Matthews caught two passes for 16 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

With Jeremy Maclin back in the picture, Matthews was limited to three targets one week after exploding for 9/104 on nine looks. The good news is, he ran in three-wide sets with the first-team offense, and lined up both out of the slot and in the backfield. There's a chance Matthews could get some run in next week's preseason finale, but if not, Philly's slot receiver finishes August with 15 catches for 134 yards. He's an upside WR4/5.

Steelers OLB Jason Worilds was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles with a right knee injury, and will not return.

Worilds suffered the injury on a third-quarter sack of Mark Sanchez. The severity is unclear. If it's in any way serious, the Steelers are going to be kicking themselves for playing one of their most-important defenders so deep into an exhibition game. With Worilds playing under the franchise tag, the sides have been discussing a long-term deal.

Eagles WR Arrelious Benn was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers with a head injury, and will not return.

Benn, who wasn't targeted before going down, is quite likely concussed. It's bad news for a player trying to make the team after missing all of 2013 with a torn ACL. If Benn can't suit up for next week's finale, he'll finish the preseason with one catch for six yards. He's a poor bet to crack the 53-man roster.

Jeremy Maclin caught six passes for 43 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Maclin drew eight targets. Maclin was moving well after being slowed by knee and hamstring issues in camp, but gave the Eagles the scare of a lifetime when he went down untouched in the first half. His right, surgically-repaired knee appeared to give out, but he somehow walked off the field under his own power before returning to the game a short time late. Maclin's injury history makes him a dicey WR3 proposition in the Eagles' spread-the-wealth passing attack, but his upside is worth the risk.
Aug 21 - 9:35 PM

Nick Foles completed 19-of-29 passes for 179 yards, a touchdown and interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

The Eagles' starter should be done for the preseason. Foles got off to a rocky start, missing low, wide and high on the Eagles' opening possession. He quickly settled down, however, working the middle of the field and getting the ball out extremely quick on the Eagles' numerous screens. His pick came on a botched screen, while his touchdown was a LeSean McCoy catch-and-run on a reverse screen. If Foles is indeed done for August, he finishes with more picks than he threw in all of 2013 (three), but 304 yards and two scores on 48 attempts (6.3 YPA). He's a locked-in QB1.

WGR 550 Buffalo calls Mike Williams one of the best players of Bills camp.

Reporter Joe Buscaglia calls Williams' basketball background "evident," and says he's "found a bit of a chemistry" with E.J. Manuel in the red zone. Poised to line up opposite Sammy Watkins in two-receiver sets, Williams is back on the radar as a touchdown-dependent WR4/5.

LeSean McCoy's (thumb) X-rays came back negative, and the injury is not considered serious.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane, Shady has avoided any fractures or torn ligaments. It's a best-case scenario after McCoy was forced from Thursday's regular-season dress rehearsal after racking up 50 yards and a score on only six touches. McCoy will be ready to rock for Week 1. Draft him as you normally would.
