Falcons released WR Tim Toone with an injury settlement.

Toone was waived/injured on Thursday with an undisclosed injury. The team also released OL Phillipkeith Manley from the active roster. Manley signed with the Falcons this spring as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo. Wide receiver Drew Davis was added to the active roster.

Julius Thomas is expected to require surgery on his broken hand, and will be sidelined 4-5 weeks.

Specifically, Thomas needs surgery on a finger tendon. For what it's worth, Thomas is getting a second opinion on Tuesday. He can safely be ruled out for Weeks 1-3, and is highly questionable for Week 4. Considering Thomas' injury history, it's not a guarantee he'll be back for Week 5. It's a major concern for the Jags' entire offense, as Thomas' presence won't be commanding attention in the red zone as Blake Bortles looks to build on his big summer. Clay Harbor is the next man up at tight end. Already a low-end TE1, the injury-prone Thomas is firmly a TE2 for the final week of drafting.

Montee Ball appears to be in danger of losing his roster spot in Denver.

He won't be a part of Denver's first cuts, but he might not make it when the Broncos trim to 53 this upcoming weekend. Ball is squarely behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, while Juwan Thompson is making a run to be Denver's No. 3 back. "Special teams is a big factor with him and Juwan," coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll see. I'm fine with Montee." If Ball were cut on Saturday, he would go through the NFL's waivers process. "Right now it's C.J., Ronnie, then Juwan, then me," Ball acknowledged. "So I guess just what it is."

The league has upheld Martavis Bryant's four-game suspension for violating the substance-abuse policy.

Dominating the preseason after his hot finish to 2014, Bryant will rejoin the Steelers in Week 5. Bryant's initial role will depend on how Markus Wheaton fares in his absence, but he's worth stashing on your bench as a potential/likely stretch-run WR3.

The Bills have confirmed Tyrod Taylor will be their starting quarterback.

"It all comes down to the explosiveness Tyrod brings to us," were the words of coach Rex Ryan. Taylor is certainly explosive, but has lacked passing finesse going back to his days at Virginia Tech. He'll be someone the Bills try to hide, hoping for rushing yards and big plays. Taylor's legs put him on the QB2 radar, and leave him as an intriguing early-season possibility in daily leagues.

Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) has resumed practicing.

Sanders didn't appear to be full go on Monday, but he's fully on track for the opener. Last year's WR7 will begin the year as a mid-range WR2 as the Broncos feel out new coach Gary Kubiak's system.

Lions activated RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') from the active/PUP list.

It's not a moment too soon for the 29-year-old veteran, who isn't facing heat from just change-of-pace back Ameer Abdullah, but early-down prospect Zach Zenner. Provided he's in game shape, Bell will be the Lions' primary chain mover in Week 1, but he can't afford a slow start like the one he had in 2014. Abdullah is talented enough to begin stealing work from the word go.

Robert Griffin III has been benched.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives. Beset by never-ending drama and an inability to stay at 100 percent, RGIII has met his predictable end for the league's most dysfunctional franchise. It's possible he won't even be the first man off the bench, with vanilla coach Jay Gruden preferring Colt McCoy's pop-gun skill-set to RGIII's unrefined dual-threat aesthetic. Much of Griffin's issues are his own doing, but he's received zero help from a franchise that's offered bafflingly little support since making him a centerpiece three years ago. A trade or release is best for all parties involved, and the sooner, the better.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said WR T.Y. Hilton is in the league's concussion protocol.

Hilton likely suffered the injury during the third preseason game, but he was not diagnosed until after the game. His status for Week 1 is unclear. The Colts open the season against the Bills in 13 days.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden named Kirk Cousins the team's starting quarterback.

Gruden said Cousins "is the best quarterback on our roster" and will be the starter for all of 2015. That may be the intention today, but nothing in the Redskins' recent history suggests they will slide through the entire season with one quarterback. Cousins owns a 59-percent career completion rate and has thrown 19 interceptions to 18 touchdowns in his three-year career. Robert Griffin III and even Colt McCoy could still make starts this season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects the Bills to cut a quarterback after naming Tyrod Taylor their starter.

Coach Rex Ryan has said the team would probably keep three quarterbacks, but he has been anything but forthcoming about his quarterbacks during the last month. E.J. Manuel seems like the obvious choice if Buffalo decides to release someone, but Matt Cassel's $4.75 million cap charge could earn him the boot. The Bills would get all of that $4.75 million off the cap by releasing Cassel.

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys have no interest in free agent RB Fred Jackson "at this time."

"At this time" is a very important part of the report. Reports have suggested the Cowboys are comfortable with their committee of Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, but that could change if the trio struggles early in the season. Jackson went to high school in the Dallas area.
