Lions released OG Geoff Schwartz.

Signed to a one-year deal in March, it is not a great sign Schwartz failed to earn a spot in a disappointing interior line group. As it turns out, the Lions' trade for Brandon Thomas Sunday could have spelled the end for Schwartz. A veteran with plenty of starting experience, he should latch on somewhere else in the near future.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Nelson Agholor will not play in the preseason finale.

Pederson praised Agholor for his work last week in practice, and the up-and-down sophomore repaid the compliment by letting a pass bounce off his hands and into the arms of a defender in the third preseason game. Even so, Agholor getting the night off all but confirms he will open the season as the No. 2 receiver. With Dorial Green-Beckham waiting in the wings, he will need to perform well to hold that job all season.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Tony Romo (back) could resume training in as little as three weeks.

Breer reports Romo avoided any ligament damage in his back, giving him a three-to-six week timetable to resume training. He will need several more weeks to get back in football shape after he resumes training, but this timeline at least suggests Romo could return after the Week 7 bye. Preseason darling Dak Prescott will start while Romo is sidelined.

Jordan Matthews (knee) returned to practice Monday.

Matthews will likely be limited in his return, but it is a great sign for his Week 1 availability. With nobody stepping up while he was sidelined, Matthews will enter the season as the clear No. 1 receiver.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Tavon Austin's new contract is a reflection of what they believe he can do in the future.

Austin landed a four-year, $42-million extension despite never topping 475 receiving yards in a season. "We’ve seen what he’s capable of and we’re hoping we’re going to get a lot more than what we’ve seen in the past," Fisher said. "He’s very, very talented with the ball in his hands. He is a problem to defend against and we hear that week after week after week." To Fisher's point, Austin did chip in 434 rushing yards last season, and he has three punt-return touchdowns in his career. While the price tag was steep, the Rams had to keep their only weapon in the passing game. Austin is a nice pick at his 11th-round ADP.

Texans QB Brock Osweiler said first-round WR Will Fuller is a "very special football player."

"Obviously, everybody knows about his speed -- they saw him all last season, they saw him at the combine -- but it’s his work ethic," Osweiler said. "That’s what really makes him special." Osweiler has looked the rookie's way early and often this preseason, and Fuller has rewarded his quarterback with eight catches for 144 yards and two touchdowns. Locked into the starting lineup, Fuller is a very interesting late-round grab.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports the Jets do not think Bryce Petty is ready to be the No. 2 quarterback.

If true, it would mean New York is all but certain to hang onto Geno Smith, although Mehta adds the team has received "soft interest" for their backup quarterback. The best scenario for the Jets would be for Petty to prove he is ready, allowing them to trade Geno and keep just three quarterbacks. As of now, it does not look like that will happen.

Ravens waived/released QB Jerrod Johnson, LB Kavell Conner, G Jarrell Broxton, DT Trevon Coley, WR Dobson Collins, C Anthony Fabiano, WR Chuck Jacobs, LB Mario Ojemudia, and WR Darius White.

Baltimore also placed TE Ben Watson (Achilles') and CB Kyle Arrington (concussion) on injured reserve. The Ravens still need to make four more moves by tomorrow's deadline.
