Brandon Marshall is inactive for the Jets' third preseason game.
Marshall is an 11th-year pro with 882 career catches. He doesn't need a "dress rehearsal" for Week 1. Marshall has little shot at matching last year's ridiculous 109/1,502/14 line, but remains a firm WR1 in an offense that figures to throw as much as any in football.
Rams signed WR Tavon Austin to a contract extension.
The deal includes $30 million guaranteed. Austin is coming off a career season, totaling 907 all-purpose yards and nine touchdowns. He'll never be a true No. 1 wideout, but emerged as an offensive weapon in his first full year starting. Owed $12 million in 2016, extending Austin creates some short-term cap relief. Austin and Todd Gurley are locked in as the Rams' primary playmakers.
Terrance Knighton said he’s concerned about his future with the Patriots.
Knighton’s roster status is in doubt after he didn't play in New England’s third preseason game. He’s behind Malcom Brown, Markus Kuhn, Anthony Johnson, and Joe Vellano. The Patriots can save $1.77M from releasing Knighton.
Bears QB Connor Shaw suffered a broken right leg above the ankle in Saturday's preseason game.
He was driven immediately to the hospital and will undergo surgery. Shaw "could be back this season," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported, but Shaw will be placed on injured reserve. Perhaps he'll be released later with a settlement.
Redskins waived CB Jeremy Harris, OT Cody Booth, LB Ejiro Ederaine, OT Al Bond, LB Willie Jefferson, WR Dez Stewart, RB Kelsey Young, and WR Jarvis Turner.
Harris appeared in one game for Washington last year. All were expected cuts.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns are likely to keep Josh McCown.
Dallas could use a veteran backup after losing Tony Romo for at least six weeks, but the Browns' asking price for McCown is too high. The Steelers are also expected to pass on McCown.
Chiefs acquired CB Kenneth Acker from the 49ers for a 2018 seventh-round pick.
Acker was forced into 13 starts last year, but had fallen to third-string duties. He wasn't needed behind Tramaine Brock and Jimmie Ward. Acker could compete for snaps opposite Marcus Peters given Kansas City's weak corner depth.
Browns CB Tramon Williams expects to reclaim his starting job.
Williams missed Friday’s preseason game with a toe injury. He’s still listed as the starter on the Browns’ depth chart, but has been practicing in the slot. Jamar Taylor is the favorite open the season opposite Joe Haden.
