Bills RB Jonathan Williams (ribs) will not play in the team's preseason finale.
NFL Network previously reported Williams was "fine," but he's not fine enough to practice or play in his final opportunity. When the season starts, Williams will be behind Shady McCoy, Reggie Bush, and Mike Gillislee.
Bucs released/waived S Major Wright, DT Travis Britz, CB Daniel Davie, WR Andre Davis, OT Taylor Fallin, LB Jeremiah George, DE Martin Ifedi, RB Storm Johnson, DT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, S Kimario McFadden, P Jacob Schum and TE Tevin Westbrook.
A favorite of former coach Lovie Smith, Wright was re-upped with an incentive-laden contract in March, but ended up not even making it to final cuts. Still only 28, it's possible Wright is brought back later at a cheaper price. Schum's removal means Bryan Anger of Russell Wilson fame has won punting duties.
Colts waived RB Chase Price, WR Justin Berger, S Alden Darby, G Eric Herman, DT Ricky Lumpkin, TE Mike Miller, CB Winston Rose, DE Delvon Simmons, WR Josh Stangby, and ILB Junior Sylvestre.
There are no real surprises here. Price was a UDFA out of San Diego State.
Panthers waived/released WR Stephen Hill, LB Jared Barber, WR Avius Capers, TE Braxton Deave, G Reese Dismukes, DT Ray Drew, OT David Foucault, DE Tom Lally, C Matt Masifilo, WR Miles Shuler and OT Willie Smith.
That brings the roster to 79, meaning the Panthers will have to make four more cuts before Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline. Hill failed to stand out this preseason, hauling in just two of four targets for 18 yards in three appearances. The former second-round pick will hope to latch on elsewhere, though teams could be hesitant to sign him given his off-field struggles and history of knee injuries.
Colts signed RB Stevan Ridley.
It's an acknowledgment of how desperately little the Colts have behind 33-year-old starter Frank Gore. Ridley couldn't beat out Zach Zenner in Detroit, and was cut after taking the ball nine times for 27 yards (3.0 YPC) in two preseason games. We'd say he doesn't have good roster odds, but his "competition" is Bob Turbin, Jordan Todman and Josh Ferguson. There's a decent chance he'll crack Indy's dilapidated running back corps.
Giants TE Matt LaCosse needs right knee surgery and is out indefinitely.
Having a strong camp, LaCosse was expected to have a role as a blocker behind pass catchers Larry Donnell and Will Tye. LaCosse may now be placed on I.R.
Chiefs holdout S Eric Berry reported to the team's facility on Sunday.
Berry staged a lengthy holdout after failing to reach a long-term deal with the Chiefs this offseason but is ready to get back to playing football. It may take Berry a few days to get up to speed but he should be ready for the Chiefs' season opener in two weeks. The 27-year-old was a first-team All-Pro last season and also earned Comeback Player of the Year honors.
Bears released FB Darrel Young.
His tenure with Chicago lasted only a few weeks. If the Bears do end up keeping a fullback (they didn't last year), it will likely be Paul Lasike, who spent most of 2015 on the team's practice squad.
