ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer said the "sense is" suspended DE Randy Gregory will not play in 2016.
Originally suspended four games for violating the substance-abuse policy, Gregory was hit with "at least" a 10-game suspension in July for another infraction. He entered rehab after the second suspension and was placed on the reserve/did not report list to start camp. With Demarcus Lawrence also suspended to start the year, the Cowboys are desperate for help at defensive end.
Bears TE Zach Miller and WR Eddie Royal will not play Saturday against the Chiefs.
Both have returned to practice, but the Bears are being cautious as the duo recover from concussions. Miller has TE1 upside if he can stay healthy, but that has been an issue throughout his career. After an injury-plagued first season in Chicago, Royal should serve as the No. 3 this year. RG Kyle Long (shoulder) and OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) are also sitting out.
Falcons waived/released QB Sean Renfree, S Sergio Brown, OL Michael Huey, RB Gus Johnson, WR Jordan Leslie, TE Arthur Lynch, LB Ivan McLennan, CB Ryan White, and DL Brandon Williams.
There are no surprises on this list. A onetime favorite of the draftnik community, Renfree was a seventh-round pick out of Duke in the 2013 draft. Renfree was outlasted by Matt Schaub and Matt Simms at Falcons training camp.
Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play in the Chiefs' third preseason game.
Neither will Charcandrick West, giving Spencer Ware another extended look with the first-team offense. Despite missing this game, Charles looks to be fully on track for the season opener in two weeks.
ESPN's Jenna Laine believes the Bucs will utilize "a LOT more no-huddle" this season.
The Bucs were almost dead average in offensive pace last season, but it sounds like they plan to up the tempo this year. That is good news for Jameis Winston, who put up QB1 numbers less than a third of the time as a rookie despite finishing as the QB13. Winston might be slightly overvalued in fantasy drafts, but he is a solid upside pick.
Saints KR/RB Marcus Murphy suffered a concussion Friday night.
Already on the roster bubble because of fumbling issues, this is a bad development for the second-year man. It is unlikely he is ready for the fourth preseason game.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Nelson Agholor "really stood out" this week in practice.
The comments were unprompted, suggesting Agholor's performance was good enough to be at the front of Pederson's mind. A good week of practice is certainly a positive sign, but Agholor needs to build on it with a strong showing Saturday against the Colts.
ESPN Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco believes Marqise Lee will be the team's "breakout star" this season.
It is unlikely Lee gets enough work to truly breakout as long as Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are healthy, but this is still a positive sign. Limited by injuries his first two seasons, Lee has finally had a healthy training camp, and he looks locked into the No. 3 job. He has also earned praise from coach Gus Bradley, who said he has shown more "maturity" this offseason. As long as he stays healthy, Lee should start to turn his career around this season.
