New Patriots TE Tim Wright ran a pass route on 34 of his 43 snaps in New England's preseason finale.

He finished with four catches for 43 yards on six targets. Wright isn't an in-line tight end like Rob Gronkowski; he's a "flex" or "move" option who will compete for snaps in the old Aaron Hernandez role. The Hernandez role has diminished in Foxboro, however, with the team now utilizing more three-wide sets. Wright remains no more than a coin-flip, back-end TE2 in fantasy.

Jaguars waived C Mike Brewster.

The bad news is Jacksonville's Opening Day center is now unclear. The good news is it won't be Brewster, who was terribly ineffective last season, and also got pushed around this August. The Jaguars have been very aware Brewster is a problem. They tried lure Alex Mack out of Cleveland this offseason.

Bills placed TE Tony Moeaki on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

They also placed CBs Mario Butler and Bobby Felder on I.R. Injury prone since his days at the University of Iowa, Moeaki got hurt early in training camp and missed the entire preseason. He'll probably get an injury settlement.

NFL suspended 49ers OLB Aldon Smith nine games for violating the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policies.

The 49ers have a Week 8 bye, so Smith won't be available until Week 11. As San Francisco has already lost ILB Navorro Bowman (ACL, MCL) and NT Glenn Dorsey (torn biceps), it's fair to wonder if the team will be forced to play more aggressive offense in Colin Kaepernick's second year as a starter. Smith's ban turned out to be even longer than expected, but it's a fair punishment regardless following Smith's array of off-field transgressions. The 49ers will turn to special teams type Dan Skuta and sophomore Corey Lemonier opposite Ahmad Brooks. It's an enormous downgrade in pass-rush ability.

Chargers waived WR Tevin Reese.

Teammate nicknamed Reese "sweet feet" following OTAs, but his impact deteriorated when the pads came on. The rookie packs just 163 pounds onto his 5-foot-10 frame. A Baylor alum, Reese was the 240th overall pick in May's draft.

Bills released QB Jordan Palmer.

He threw three interceptions in the preseason finale.
Aug 29 - 3:56 PM

Bengals RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is expected to miss the first month of the regular season.

When he returns, Burkhead will slot in as Cincinnati's No. 4 tailback and help on special teams. The Bengals will open the season with a two-man RBBC of Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. Cedric Peerman will be the top reserve.

The Cowboys may open the season with Justin Durant as their lone every-down linebacker.

The team is reportedly considering a committee approach at the two other positions. Whether Durant's position will be middle or weak-side linebacker also remains unsettled. Fourth-round rookie Anthony Hitchens, Rolando McClain, Kyle Wilber, and Bruce Carter are all competing for complementary snaps.
