Ravens RB Fitzgerald Toussaint didn't see the field in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins.
Beat writer Jeff Zrebiac is taking this as a sign Toussaint has fallen behind Terrence Magee on the Ravens' running back depth chart. Magee has averaged 5.1 yards per carry this preseason compared to only 3.4 for Toussaint. Neither one figures to see much playing time this year behind starter Justin Forsett and complementary backs Lorenzo Taliaferro and Buck Allen.
Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiac believes the team's last wide receiver spot will go to either Darren Waller or Jeremy Butler.
Zrebiac said it depends on how many receivers the Ravens decide to keep. If they keep six, Waller would probably get the last spot. If they go seven deep, the last spot would likely go to Butler. Michael Campanero is locked in as the No. 5 receiver. Butler caught four passes for 32 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins while Waller snagged one ball for five yards.
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team is open to signing another running back.
"I'm sure we’ll look and see what else is out there," said Whisenhunt. "If there’s somebody that can help us—if we need that." None of the Titans' running backs have stood out this preseason and the team is likely to employ a committee in the early going. Sankey is the favorite for early-down work with Dexter McCluster mixing in on passing downs. David Cobb will have a role when he returns from his calf injury with Antonio Andrews and David Fluellen serving as backfield depth.
ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein expects RB Zach Zenner to play on special teams and get a "few carries here and there" if he makes the roster.
Zenner has piled on 162 rushing yards in three preseason appearances. He's likely done enough to secure a roster spot ahead of George Winn, though his workload won't be significant enough to warrant fantasy consideration.
Lions coach Jim Caldwell said RB Joique Bell is "moving along really well" in his recovery from offseason knee and Achilles surgeries.
Bell said he's made "good progress" though the Lions are still "playing it by ear." He hasn't suited up for any of the Lions' preseason games and has yet to resume practicing. Bell doesn't expect to be limited upon his return. Promising rookie Ameer Abdullah will have a role regardless of Bell's health.
Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union believes the Jaguars could be open to trading one their two kickers.
The Jaguars are unlikely to keep both Josh Scobee and Jason Meyers when the roster shrinks from 75 to 53 in a few days. Both players have had good preseasons and could be swapped for late-round picks. The Steelers could be interested in acquiring a fresh leg. Shaun Suisham went down with a torn ACL in his first preseason game while Garrett Hartley is nursing a hamstring injury.
X-rays on Arthur Jones' sprained ankle came back negative.
Jones hurt himself in Saturday's dress rehearsal against the Rams. He'll undergo further testing Sunday to determine how bad the sprain is. It's unclear if the six-year veteran will be available for the season opener against Buffalo on September 13.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said K Garrett Hartley's availability for Week 1 against the Patriots "isn't looking good."
He suffered a hamstring injury Saturday against Buffalo and is headed for an MRI. Hartley signed earlier this month after going down with a torn ACL. It's been a rough camp for Pittsburgh kickers. Free agent Jay Feely worked out with the Steelers on Friday and could be the team's best option with Hartley sidelined.
