Dan Herron tweeted Friday, "I'm good," after suffering a shoulder injury in Thursday night's preseason finale.
It could be taken as a sign that tests on Herron's shoulder came back clean after he was spotted in a sling in the locker room following Thursday's game. A healthy Herron would enter the season as Frank Gore's top backup.
Bucs placed WR Kenny Bell on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.
It's a bitter disappointment for a day-three pick who entered the league on a wave of momentum. Nebraska's all-time leading receiver, Bell tore up the Combine, and had an inside track on No. 3 duties. He missed the Bucs' final two preseason games, however, and wasn't shining in practice. Now set to "redshirt" his rookie year, Bell won't be guaranteed a roster spot in 2016.
The Cardinals have yet to rule Michael Floyd (dislocated fingers) out for Week 1.
The test will be what Floyd can do in practice next Wednesday. If he's catching passes without issue, he'll be ready to rock against the Saints.
Bills RB Karlos Williams (undisclosed operation) took place in individual drills on Friday.
The fifth-round rookie continues to trend in the right direction for next Sunday's opener. With Fred Jackson out of the picture, Williams could be returning as the Bills' No. 2 back, and perhaps even starter with LeSean McCoy nursing a hamstring injury. He's not a bad stash at the end of benches.
49ers released S Craig Dahl.
Dahl is a 30-year-old special teamer and backup safety.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) returned to individual drills at Bills practice on Friday.
While he hasn't yet progressed to team drills, this is a positive sign for McCoy's Week 1 availability. We'll monitor his participation throughout next week. Karlos Williams (abdomen) also returned to individual drills on Friday and would be in the mix for carries if McCoy couldn't play against the Colts.
CBS 4 Denver's Vic Lombardi reports the Broncos are discussing a Montee Ball trade with the Cowboys.
Ball had a highly unimpressive preseason in Denver's zone-rushing attack, but the Cowboys have long been high on his ability and could put him into a rotation with underwhelming Joseph Randle, and injury-prone Darren McFadden. We suspect Ball wouldn't cost more than a seventh-round pick. 24 years old, Ball has a 4.2 yards per carry average with 29 catches through two NFL seasons.
Texans third-string QB Tom Savage suffered a "severe" right shoulder sprain in Thursday night's preseason finale.
It's actually good news because the initial fears were Savage might have broken his collarbone or separated his throwing shoulder. Savage is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks. He's behind Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett in Houston.
