Jets placed WR Devin Smith on the reserve/PUP list.
This clears a roster spot as the Jets begin their first round of cuts. The 37th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Smith tore his ACL in December last year and was always expected to go on reserve/PUP, costing him the first six games. Despite his high draft status, Smith is a fringe hold in Dynasty leagues.
Cardinals CB Mike Jenkins left Sunday's third preseason game with a severe right knee injury.
He was carted off and could be seen slamming his fist on the cart en route to the locker room. Jenkins appears likely to miss the 2016 season.
Rookie TE Hunter Henry caught his lone target for seven yards in the Chargers' third preseason game.
He got a ton of first-team run with Antonio Gates resting, but Philip Rivers didn't look to Henry much before Kellen Clemens came on. Rookie tight ends ordinarily struggle for production, and we don't expect Henry to be different barring a Gates injury. Henry won the Mackey Award at Arkansas in 2015.
Eagles released WR Chris Givens.
The Philadelphia Inquirer predicted this was coming last week. A 2012 fourth-round pick, Givens turned in a promising rookie campaign with the Rams (42-698-3), but his career has been in a tailspin ever since. It's an especially ominous sign for Givens that he couldn't crack one of the NFL's worst receiver corps.
Jerick McKinnon rushed eight times for 56 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for nine yards in the Vikings' third preseason game.
McKinnon re-confirmed his explosive ability and adeptness in the passing game. Beat writers believe McKinnon's receiving role will increase this year, as it should. While standalone value may still be hard to come by, McKinnon would become an every-week fantasy starter if something happened to Adrian Peterson.
LaQuon Treadwell caught his only target for 15 yards in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.
It came on a quick hitter from third-string QB Joel Stave early in the fourth quarter. Treadwell also snagged a two-point conversion on a goal-line fade from Shaun Hill. He climbed the ladder to make an impressive catch over Chargers corner Trevor Williams. Treadwell logged nine snaps in the first half compared to 29 for Stefon Diggs, 25 for Charles Johnson and 17 for Adam Thielen. He’ll enter his rookie year with some depth chart ground to make up.
Charles Johnson secured 2-of-3 targets for 25 yards in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.
Both grabs came on Minnesota’s final drive of the first half. Johnson didn’t do anything to leap off the page, but he out-snapped every Vikings receiver in the first half except for Stefon Diggs. It’s hard to trust Johnson after what he put fantasy owners through last season, but he is going to be a Week 1 starter.
Larry Fitzgerald is sitting out Sunday's regular season dress rehearsal.
Fitz has been battling a "slight" MCL sprain, so the Cards won't take any chances. There's yet to be an indication it's a concern for Fitz's Week 1 status. Last year's WR9 overall is a solid WR3.
