Chargers holdout No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa has been "working out like a madman" at Tony Villani's XPE Sports Academy in Florida, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
At least Bosa's conditioning won't be an issue if he ever decides to end his holdout. The Chargers were hoping Bosa would return this week so he could get a couple practices under his belt before Week 1 but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Even if Bosa caves in the next few days (he won't), it's unlikely he'd be ready for the team's opener against Kansas City on September 11.
Jaguars released RB Jonas Gray with an injury settlement.
That takes him off the Jaguars' injured reserve list. Gray hurt his quad early on in training camp and it's unclear when he might return. He managed just 54 yards on 14 carries in his two games for Jacksonville last season.
NFL suspended Chargers DT Damion Square four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
He'll be eligible to return against the Raiders in Week 5. Square missed a drug test, which has the same effect as if he had tested positive. The third-year defensive lineman appeared in six games for the Chargers after being claimed off waivers from Philadelphia in November.
Titans C/G Andy Gallik underwent a knee scope and will miss "at least" the remainder of the preseason.
Last year's sixth-rounder, Gallik is competing for a backup job along the interior.
Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) said he "can see the light" and is nearing the end of his recovery.
Beachum tore his ACL last October and just recently progressed to doing one-on-one pass-blocking drills in practice this week. "Very close," Beachum said. "I don’t know how close, but I feel really close to being similar to myself." Beachum says he's ready now, but the decision is up to coach Gus Bradley.
Kendall Wright (hamstring) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.
Wright hasn't practiced in three weeks and missed pretty much all of training camp and the first two preseason games. He's also going to now miss the all-important third exhibition. Coach Mike Mularkey has already expressed his frustration with Wright's injury issues over the past two years. Wright should still have the slot role when he gets back, but his leash will be tight.
Coach Mike Mularkey promised Wednesday that the Titans will "find ways" to get Derrick Henry on the field this season.
Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.
Jeremy Langford (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.
Langford appears to be questionable at best for the Bears' regular season dress rehearsal, but this is a step in the right direction after his foot was stepped on in Chicago's second preseason game, and Langford spent the next day in a walking boot. All signs still point to this being a minor "injury".
