Rishard Matthews started the Dolphins' third preseason game over Kenny Stills.
Fourth-rounder Jamil Douglas has passed Billy Turner in the Dolphins' right-guard competition.
Douglas has slowly started getting more reps with the first-team offense at the expense of Turner over the past couple weeks, and the two players were notified of the switch on Monday. Douglas was initially supposed to push LG Dallas Thomas, but Thomas has played well after a rough first two seasons.
Vikings placed CB Josh Robinson on reserve/PUP.
Robinson tore his pectoral muscle in the spring and has been sidelined since. He'll be eligible to return to the active roster Week 7 against the Lions. Robinson won't have a major role after the additions of Trae Waynes and Terence Newman.
Patriots waived WR Josh Boyce, WR Jonathan Krause, TE Jimmay Mundine, DL Joe Vellano and LB Dekoda Watson.
A 2013 fourth-rounder, it's the second year in a row Boyce hasn't survived through final cuts. Although Boyce ended up making one 2014 appearance, this should be the end of the line for his time with the Patriots. Boyce has serious speed, but has dealt with injuries, and never got in rhythm with Tom Brady.
Rams waived CB Imoan Claiborne,
OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond,
S Jay Hughes, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy,
WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley,
LB Korey Toomer and C David Wang.
Veteran WR Damian Williams was released. Claiborne's release came as a "mild surprise" to reporter Nick Wagoner. Getting cut loose now suggests the Rams don't view him as a candidate for the practice squad.
Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell called Week 4 a "realistic" return target for Julius Thomas (hand surgery).
Thomas has already been essentially ruled out for the first three games of the season. It sounds like returning in Week 4 against the Colts would be a best case scenario. Expect Allen Robinson to be a target monster in the meantime, and for Allen Hurns to also see a bump in early-season usage.
DeVante Parker (foot) resumed practicing Monday, and the Dolphins are "quietly hopeful" he'll be ready for Week 1.
Parker's limited session on Monday was his first practice of any kind since his June operation. With only 13 days to get in game shape, Parker will undoubtedly will be on a snap count for the opener, but he could be worked into the offense quickly. Parker remains worth stashing as a WR4/5.
Titans CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson has returned from his high ankle sprain.
He resumed practicing Monday after missing the previous two-plus weeks of training camp. With top Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin surgery) unlikely to play before Week 3, Wreh-Wilson projects as a potential starter opposite Perrish Cox to begin the year. DFS players should be praying Wreh-Wilson gets the nod with the ones. Wreh-Wilson is one of the NFL's easiest-to-burn corners.
