Saints WR Nick Toon will likely need foot surgery as he spends his rookie year on injured reserve.

Toon played in the preseason finale, but interim coach Aaron Kromer said the rookie still "wasn't ready," and the chronic problems in his foot now need to be surgically addressed. The good news is Toon should be able to rest up in a redshirt rookie season. The bad news is his foot has been problematic for over a year, and not something Toon is capable of playing effectively through.

Redskins placed RB Keith Marshall on injured reserve with a sprained elbow, ending his season.

Marshall was originally given a three-week timeline upon going down in the third preseason game, but either his prognosis got worse, or the Redskins used his injury as an opportunity to free up a roster spot. Marshall was a hyped seventh-rounder out of Georgia, but didn't make nearly as much noise once the pads went on. Injuries are nothing new for Marshall, whose time in the SEC was marked by one ailment after another. UDFA Rob Kelley will begin the year as Matt Jones' direct backup.

Steelers placed TE Ladarius Green (ankle, headaches) on the reserve/PUP list.

It was the expected outcome even though no one really knows what's truly sidelining the fifth-year tight end. Green and the Steelers both claim it is his ankle, but his agent said earlier this month that his ankle was fine. The headache rumors have not been completely debunked. Considering just how up in the air the situation is, Green shouldn't be stashed in re-draft leagues. Jesse James will open the year as the Steelers' pass catcher at tight end.

John Brown (headaches, concussion) has been cleared to resume playing.

He could suit up for Thursday's exhibition finale, but almost certainly won't. Brown hasn't played a snap this preseason, but the Cardinals obviously aren't going to further risk his health. The lingering nature of Brown's concussion issues is a definite concern, but he'll be out there for Week 1. Brown has become a risk/reward WR3 in the Cardinals' crowded receiver corps.

Vikings released C John Sullivan.

The Vikings could not find a trade partner, so they cut the cord on Sullivan in favor of Tony Sparano pal Joe Berger. Still only 31 years old, Sullivan was one of the top centers in football in 2014, before missing all of 2015 with back problems. There are a number of teams around the league that could use help on the pivot. After losing Nick Martin, the Texans immediately come to mind.

49ers placed WR Bruce Ellington on injured reserve with a torn hamstring, ending his season.

Competing for a starting job, Ellington was an intriguing sleeper headed into training camp. His loss further thins San Francisco's embarrassingly-thin receiver corps, and means recently-acquired Jeremy Kerley could have to man the slot. Coach Chip Kelly has almost nothing to work with on offense. Now 25, Ellington will head into the final year of his rookie deal with all of 19 career catches.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase conceded Tuesday that third-round pick Leonte Carroo "has got a little ways to go."

Gase mostly praised Carroo, commending him for his talent and work habits. But he also hinted at why Carroo hasn't made a run yet for work in three-receiver sets. "He doesn't know some of the things he needs to know to help himself," said Gase. "That (comes) a little bit from experience." Parker is the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver behind Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker.

Teddy Bridgewater suffered a potentially serious non-contact left knee injury in Tuesday's practice.

Bridgewater went down in a heap, and his teammates immediately called for the trainer. According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, players were cursing and throwing their helmets. They gathered around Bridgewater in prayer. The scene was described as "complete shock." The Vikings canceled practice and an ambulance was summoned. Obviously, it has the looks of a potentially season-ending injury, which would be a devastating blow even considering Bridgewater's game-managing ways. Journeyman veteran Shaun Hill is the next man up on the depth chart.

The MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Patriots are "shopping" Aaron Dobson.

They're shopping him because he'll be cut if/when they can't find a trade partner. Dobson has played over 100 snaps this summer, but has a modest six catches for 96 yards to show for it. Always hurt and mistake-prone, Dobson probably won't fetch a conditional day-three pick.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys "have received calls" from teams wanting to acquire Darren McFadden, but Dallas "really wants to keep him."

Dealing with a severe elbow injury, McFadden is expected to begin the season on the Cowboys' reserve/NFI list should he stay put in Dallas. If not, he could be available earlier if cleared by another team's doctors. Alfred Morris has played well enough this preseason to open 2016 as Ezekiel Elliott's clear backup. McFadden is owed $1.75 million in the last year of his deal.

Chiefs placed OLB Justin Houston (knee) on the reserve/PUP list.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Chiefs are "hopeful" of a mid-season return. Houston will be first eligible to suit up in Week 8, as the Chiefs are on bye in Week 5. It's a major blow, but far from unexpected. Houston was given a 6-12 month timetable after having his (apparently non-torn) ACL repaired in February. It's still not a certainty he suits up this season.

Giants signed OT Will Beatty to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

Beatty made the free agent rounds, but couldn't find a new home. He'll likely begin the year as the Giants' swing tackle, but could put immediate pressure on RT Marshall Newhouse. If the G-Men grow uncomfortable with Ereck Flowers on the blindside, Flowers could be shifted to the right with Newhouse headed to the bench.
