Matt Forte rushed 10 times for 28 yards in Saturday's preseason game, catching 2-of-3 targets for nine yards.

Making his preseason debut (and finale), Forte got the ball five times on Gang Green's opening drive. He dominated the first quarter snaps, though Bilal Powell notched seven touches of his own by halftime. The biggest takeaway is that Forte looked 100 percent healthy, and was heavily involved as a pass catcher. Powell is going to cut into Forte's third down work, but the longtime Bear is a strong RB2.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 9-of-16 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, also losing a fumble.

To put it mildly, Fitz looked rusty. He was extremely lucky to escape without an interception. His touchdown was a staredown to Eric Decker, who beat sticky coverage from Janoris Jenkins. Otherwise, Fitz was sailing passes left and right, seeming to struggle with his mechanics. It's not a surprise after he spent the entire summer playing contract hardball. Fitz closes the book on the preseason completing 16-of-29 throws for 183 yards (6.31 YPA), one score and zero picks. He'll remain a matchup-based QB2 in his age-34 season.

Kamar Aiken caught 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.

Even with Ben Watson going down on the first play of the game, Aiken was a distant second to Mike Wallace in targets. He's had a solid preseason, but doesn't have a secure role. Aiken shouldn't be higher than the No. 3 receiver once the Ravens get fully healthy.

Eagles rookie Wendell Smallwood left Saturday's third preseason game with a head injury.

He's presumably being tested for a concussion. Before going down, Smallwood worked as the Eagles' No. 4 back behind Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, and Kenjon Barner. Smallwood had two carries for 11 yards and a five-yard catch prior to exiting. He may open the season on Philly's game-day inactives list.

Ameer Abdullah had four carries for 16 yards in the Lions' third preseason game.

Abdullah was making his preseason debut after sitting out the first two games. He started and got the majority of early-down work before getting rested in the second quarter. Abdullah didn't do much, but had a 15-yard touchdown called back. His shoulder injury was a non-issue.

Giants CB Leon Hall left Saturday's preseason game with a concussion.

Obviously, he won't be returning. Hall had two tackles before exiting in the second quarter. If Hall's absence lingers into the regular season, it could open up work for first-round pick Eli Apple in the slot.

Andrew Luck completed 13-of-18 passes for 134 yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night.

He rushed once for two yards. The biggest takeaway from this game was the atrociousness of the Colts' offensive line, which gave up three sacks in two quarters and at least four more hits on Luck. Luck was efficient in the rare instances he had time to throw, hooking up with Donte Moncrief five times for 52 yards and T.Y. Hilton for 3-38 on five targets. Luck also found Josh Ferguson for a 16 yards on a well-designed screen. Luck's protection remains an obstacle in his quest for a full-on rebound to his elite 2014 form.

Kenneth Dixon suffered a left knee injury in Saturday's preseason game.

Dixon's knee bent awkwardly on a second quarter goal-line carry. He had to be helped off and was immediately taken to the locker room. Dixon was having a strong game before going down, rushing for 41 yards on six carries while playing with the first-team offense. More will be known when the Ravens update his status.
