Brandon LaFell caught his only target for eight yards Sunday night against the Jaguars.

LaFell worked as the starter in two-wide sets before A.J. Green went down with a minor injury. Rookie Tyler Boyd saw time in the slot in three-wide looks. LaFell did curiously see snaps with the second unit, but it was likely just to get him reps after he missed time with a hand injury. Looking likely to open the season as the No. 2 receiver, LaFell has some intriguing target upside.

Tyler Boyd caught his only target for nine yards in the Bengals' third preseason game Sunday night.

Boyd played behind Brandon LaFell, only seeing work in three-wide sets before A.J. Green left with a minor injury. He still has time to jump the veteran before Week 1, but the Bengals' plan throughout the entire offseason was to have LaFell start with the rookie operating from the slot, which is likely the approach they will use early in the season. With an uncertain workload in what could be a run-heavy attack, Boyd is nothing more than a late-round flier.

Pharoh Cooper will miss "a few weeks" with a shoulder injury.

Rams beat writer Alden Gonzalez believes Cooper will miss the opener, "at least." Cooper had won the Rams' third receiver job behind Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt. Los Angeles remains likely to be more of a two-tight end team.

Jeremy Hill rushed eight times for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' third preseason game Sunday night.

He added 28 yards on a screen pass. The average does not look great, but four of the attempts came as he tried to punch it into the end zone inside the five. He was successful on the fourth attempt, showing good speed to get the corner before diving for the pylon. Unlikely to play next week, Hill finishes the preseason with 53 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. He looks poised for a bounce back.

Giovani Bernard rushed three times for 27 yards and caught both of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' third preseason game.

While Jeremy Hill (8-21-1) was repeatedly stuffed at the line, Bernard impressed with his patience as a ball carrier and turned a tunnel screen at the edge of the red zone into a 19-yard touchdown. The beginning to the season sets up nicely for Gio, as the Bengals start at the Jets and Steelers before hosting the Broncos in Week 3. Those were three of the best run defenses in football last year. If Hill struggles, Bernard should get increased work.
Aug 28 - 9:29 PM

Andy Dalton completed 6-of-10 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the third preseason game Sunday night.

Despite losing A.J. Green to a minor injury, Dalton was sharp. After a Jaguars fumble, Dalton found Gio Bernard for a 19-yard touchdown on a well-designed screen pass in the first quarter, and he led a massive, 16-play drive for a score on his final possession of the night. Unlikely to play next week, Dalton finishes the preseason 17-for-24 for 187 yards and one touchdown. He is a great pick in the 12th round.

Cedric Peerman exited the Bengals' third preseason game with a serious arm injury.

Peerman got his left arm caught underneath both himself and a defender as he went to the ground at the end of a second-quarter run. He immediately went to the sidelines in what looked like serious pain. He was fitted with an air cast on his forearm on the sidelines. It looks like he will be out a while.

Cardinals WR J.J. Nelson went catch-less on two targets in the team's third preseason game.

It was a quiet night for Nelson despite the fact that he ran with the ones with Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown in street clothes. Nelson has homerun-hitting ability, but he will enter the season no higher than No. 4 on the depth chart. Nelson may also be behind Cardinals "training camp MVP" Jaron Brown.
