David Johnson totaled 28 yards and a touchdown on six carries and also caught one of two targets for no gain in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.

He was the intended receiver on the first of Carson Palmer’s two interceptions. Johnson broke loose for a 16-yard dash down the right sideline early in the first quarter but he didn’t gain more than three yards on any of his other five carries. He pinballed through a maze of defenders for a three-yard score on his final touch of the afternoon. Johnson will finish the preseason with 64 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. He’s certainly looked the part of a top-three fantasy back, even in limited action.

Lamar Miller collected four yards and a touchdown on four carries in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.

He failed to reel in his only target. It was a frustrating outing for Miller, who could only muster a long of three yards against Arizona’s stout front seven. He was able to salvage the afternoon with a one-yard touchdown on Houston’s opening drive. Miller averaged a tepid 3.6 yards per carry in his three preseason appearances, but he’ll be fine when the games start counting. After being underused in Miami for four years, Miller should be in for a breakout season.

Michael Floyd caught his lone target for ten yards in the Cardinals' third preseason game.

With John Brown (concussion) and Larry Fitzgerald (knee) on the shelf, Arizona's three-receiver set was made up of Floyd, Jaron Brown, and J.J. Nelson against the Texans. Floyd's time on the field was brief, along with Carson Palmer's. Floyd should be pressing for a career year in his contract season.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will be sidelined four weeks with a torn MCL, but does not need surgery.

It's good and bad news. The bad being it's going to be a while before Dixon pushes for a role on offense, the good that he isn't out longer and has avoided surgery. Dixon had a strong camp and preseason. He isn't worth stashing in 12-team leagues, but should begin the year on watch lists. Baltimore has a volatile backfield where the pecking order could change multiple times in September. The four-week timetable has Dixon returning somewhere around Week 4 or 5.

Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards in Sunday's third preseason game.

Williams has been solid in the passing game this preseason, but most importantly he has run extensively with Philip Rivers' first-team offense. While Williams' role to open the year is unclear behind Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates, it is notable that he has logged run over Travis Benjamin at times in August. Williams belongs on Dynasty rosters and re-draft-league watch lists.

Carson Palmer completed 5-of-9 passes for 64 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in Arizona's third preseason game.

Both of Palmer's INTs were tipped passes. The second was housed for a touchdown by LB John Simon. Palmer took a cheap shot from DT Devon Still in the process, and appeared to chip his tooth. The Cards then held him out for the rest of the game. Palmer finishes the summer with zero touchdowns and three picks. The last time he appeared in a game that counted, of course, was the NFC Championship Game, where he gave the ball to the other team six times. Palmer remains a QB1 with elite weapons, but durability and turnovers are mounting question marks. Including the preseason, he has 13 turnovers in his past seven appearances.

Colin Kaepernick told reporters Sunday that he will "continue to sit" during pre-game National Anthems.

This assumes Kaepernick is on an NFL roster this season, and attending games at all. While it is certainly within his rights to sit when the National Anthem is played, it has caused a P.R. nightmare in San Francisco and will remain one for as long as Kaepernick is showing up on Sundays. Other teams likely now view him as toxic. It's no secret Kaepernick is disliked by teammates, even prior to the National Anthem thing. Combined with his poor play, Kaepernick's protestation could become a career-threatening decision.
