The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reported the Ravens showed interest in free agent RB Fred Jackson.

Jackson appears poised to sign with the Seahawks, but the Ravens' reported interest could hint they are unhappy with Buck Allen as the backup to Justin Forsett. Allen has struggled this preseason and fumbled on his way into the end zone in the third preseason game. With Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee) sidelined for a least the first several weeks of the season, Baltimore may look to bring in veteran help at final cuts.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said DT Timmy Jernigan's knee injury is not "overly serious."

Jernigan went down early in the Ravens' third preseason game. While the injury will not require surgery, it makes him at best questionable for Week 1. Baltimore is relying on Jernigan to replace Haloti Ngata.

Victor Cruz (calf) is no longer certain he will play in Week 1.

"Nothing’s been set in stone in terms of playing that first week or not playing that first week," Cruz said. "I’m still excited for Week 1. That’s still the goal. That’s still the plan in my opinion." Cruz has been sidelined by a "minor" calf strain since mid-August and is not expected to practice this week. Cruz was already a risky fantasy bet coming off a devastating knee injury.

Free agent CB Tim Jennings is visiting the Buccaneers today.

The only thing shocking about this is it did not happen sooner. Jennings played for Bucs coach Lovie Smith for three years in Chicago and is well versed in the Cover 2 defense Smith likes to employ. This deal should get done.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett said the PUP list is a "serious consideration" for S Jarius Byrd (knee).

The Saints expected Byrd to return to practice before the end of the preseason, but he has yet to see the field. The details of Byrd's injury are not known, but he is believed to be dealing with complications from the torn meniscus which caused him to miss all but four games last season. Byrd signed a six-year, $54 million contract last offseason.

Dolphins released P Brandon Fields.

Fields restructured his contract in March in a bid to keep his roster spot. Matt Darr will open the season as the Dolphins' punter. Miami also released RB Demetrius Bronson.

Vikings waived/injured QB Mike Kafka.

He will revert to injured reserve once he passes through waivers. Depending on the severity of the injury, Kafka could be released with an injury settlement. This transaction gets the Vikings down to 75 players.

Panthers released WR Jarrett Boykin.

The acquisition of Kevin Norwood from Seattle on Monday likely sealed his fate. Boykin caught 49 passes with the Packers in 2013 but has struggled to find playing time since. Being cut by a receiver-needy team like the Panthers is not a great sign for his NFL future. Carolina also cut S Robert Lester.
