Chargers WR Javontee Herndon is recovering from a knee scope, and expected to miss the entire season.
The return man was battling to be the No. 5 receiver. He'll likely be back to compete for one of San Diego's final roster spots in 2017.
49ers DE Quinton Dial (sprained MCL) will be ready for Week 1.
It's a bit surprising since Dial's injury occurred only four days ago, but the word comes straight from coach Chip Kelly. Dial could have a starting role at right end along San Francisco's outrageously-thin defensive line.
Speaking Tuesday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Josh Doctson (Achilles') still doesn't have "full-speed burst," but will resume practicing "very soon."
It's basically what we've been hearing from Gruden all summer about his first-round pick. Doctson seems to have no shot at suiting up for Week 1, and can best be clarified as "week to week." He's been battling the still-mysterious issue since June 1. The situation could change in a hurry, but Doctson begins the year without real value in re-draft leagues.
John Brown (concussion/headaches) "couldn't say" Monday whether he'll be ready for Week 1.
The good news is Brown says this is the first concussion of his life. The bad news is he's endured several setbacks, leaving practice early twice with headaches and missing several more entirely. "I’m just taking it one day at a time," Brown said. "My focus is just being able to practice, just being able to get through a full practice." The Cardinals host the Patriots on September 11.
Bills acquired LB Lerentee McCray from the Packers for an undisclosed 2018 draft pick.
A 2013 undrafted free agent, McCray played 24 games for the Broncos the last two seasons. He will help on special teams and serve as depth for the Bills' banged-up linebacking corps.
Falcons placed seventh-round WR Devin Fuller (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.
He likely needs surgery. Fuller was expected to help out on kick returns following the release of Devin Hester.
Vikings waived/released TE Brian Leonhardt, OL Sean Hickey, OL Austin Shepherd, WR Terrell Sinkfield, WR Marken Michel, DE Theiren Cockran, DE Claudell Louis, QB Brad Sorensen, and LB Terrance Plummer.
Minnesota still has five more moves to make to reach the 75-man roster limit.
Dolphins CB Chris Culliver (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP.
It was expected Culliver would start the year on the PUP when the Dolphins signed him earlier this month. He will miss at least the first six weeks, but he could be a valuable mid-season boost for a team desperate at corner. Second-round rookie Xavien Howard, who has missed all of the preseason with a knee injury, is expected to open the year opposite Byron Maxwell in the starting lineup.
