Travis Benjamin caught 2-of-5 targets for 35 yards in Sunday's preseason game.

Aug 28 - 3:16 PM

According to owner Jim Irsay, Colts LG Jack Mewhort's knee injury will only sideline him 2-4 weeks.

NFL Network reported late Saturday that Mewhort was "believed" to have torn his ACL. The Colts are catching a huge break here, as Mewhort is their best offensive lineman and the anchor between struggling LT Anthony Castonzo and rookie C Ryan Kelly. It appears Mewhort escaped with a knee sprain. The 2-4 week timetable still makes Mewhort doubtful for Week 1 against Detroit.

Keenan Allen caught four passes for 67 yards across three preseason games.

Allen's stats are completely irrelevant since both he and Philip Rivers barely played, but are solid all the same. An absolute target vacuum who was having a career year before getting hurt in 2015, Allen is on the WR1/2 borderline for an offense that's always one of the most pass happy in football.

Melvin Gordon exploded for 51 yards and one touchdown on four carries with one catch for five yards in Sunday’s preseason game.

He didn’t see a huge workload but with players dropping like flies on Sunday (Branden Oliver and Joe Barksdale both left with injuries), the Chargers were probably wise to limit Gordon’s exposure. A huge hole opened up for Gordon in the second quarter and he knew exactly what to do with it, rumbling 39 yards to the end zone for his second touchdown of the preseason. Gordon’s rookie season couldn’t have gone much worse but he’s looked spry this summer with 81 rushing yards on 13 carries to go with two catches for 49 yards. His offseason training with Adrian Peterson seems to have paid off.
Aug 28 - 3:04 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 12-of-16 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' third preseason game.

He added a 22-yard scramble. Bridgewater was sharp despite missing recent practices due to arm fatigue, connecting with Stefon Diggs for 5-71 receiving on five targets and throwing a TD pass to Kyle Rudolph. The low-volume nature of Minnesota's passing offense is Teddy's biggest hurdle in the way of fantasy football impact. That could change if Adrian Peterson went down.
Aug 28 - 2:56 PM

Philip Rivers completed 5-of-9 passes for 54 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's third preseason game.

The Bolts just wanted to get Rivers a few reps without getting him injured. Mission accomplished. Rivers attempted only 12 passes this summer, but it's not a concern for someone with 5,339 career throws. Rivers has his best supporting cast in a few years, and is a firm WR1.

49ers released RT Erik Pears.

They also cut tight end Rory "Busta" Anderson. Pears started all 16 games for the Niners last season but couldn't hold off Trent Brown in camp. The 34-year-old should land a backup gig in relatively short order despite his struggles last year.
Aug 28 - 2:44 PM

Chargers RB Branden Oliver was carted off the field in Sunday's preseason game with a torn right Achilles'.

We're not doctors, but you could practically see Oliver's Achilles' tendon pop in slow motion. The Chargers have since confirmed. Oliver will be done for the season. Oliver is a jack-of-all-trades backup behind Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon. It leaves the Bolts with little room for error if Woodhead gets hurt or Gordon doesn't take a step forward.
