Brian Hartline was erased in Miami's Week 6 win over the Rams, failing to draw a single target.

Hartline officially drew zero looks in the first half before having two second half targets wiped away by penalties. He was simply taken off the map by elite Rams CB Cortland Finnegan. It was a discouraging afternoon one week after Hartline was held to four catches against the Bengals, but perhaps not a blueprint that will be repeated by opposing defenses, as rookie Ryan Tannehill displayed surprising poise despite having his security blanket taken away. Nevertheless, Hartline's 12-catch Week 4 notwithstanding, he's now averaging just 3.4 catches per game.

Browns coach Hue Jackson hopes to name a starting quarterback by Wednesday.

Jackson said he has an "idea" of who will be the starter, but he wants to "watch the tape" of Monday night's game before making a final decision. Brock Osweiler got the start again on Monday night, but he once again struggled with ball placement and had a ball tipped and intercepted at the line. DeShone Kizer led two scoring drives, but he held the ball too long and had a couple very questionable throws. With solid talent on offense, the Browns could surprise if the quarterback situation cooperates.

Raiders LT Donald Penn is expected to end his holdout this week.

Set to earn $5.8 million in the final year of his deal, the 34-year-old was likely hoping to get a raise and perhaps another couple years tacked onto his deal. That has not happened to this point, but returning to camp could open the door to negotiations -- GM Reggie McKenzie said he will not negotiate with players who are not at camp. If Penn returns early in the week, he could be ready for a cameo in the third preseason game on Saturday.

Odell Beckham (ankle) suggested he will be ready for Week 1.

When asked if he would be ready to face the Cowboys in a couple weeks, Beckham turned on the sarcasm. "I don’t know, man," Beckham said through a smile. "I’m pretty concerned, but I think I’ll be all right." He will have more tests on Tuesday, but it looks like Beckham has avoided a serious injury.

DeShone Kizer completed 8-of-13 passes for 74 yards in the Browns' second preseason game Monday night.

Most of his damage was done with his legs, as Kizer rushed five times for 35 yards and a touchdown that came from one yard out on a sneak. While he did lead two scoring drives in four possessions, Kizer wasn't all that impressive in this one. He held onto the ball too long at times, taking two sacks, and should have thrown a brutal interception on a third down in his own territory but the play was called back on a penalty. Brock Osweiler started and threw a pick on his two possessions of work. The quarterback spot remains a concern for Cleveland. Kizer probably isn't ready, but Osweiler is a known commodity who simply isn't good.

Odell Beckham's X-ray on his injured ankle came back negative.

The Giants say OBJ will "undergo further examination," but it's more confirmation that Beckham has apparently avoided serious injury. He came back out to the sideline for the start of the second half dressed in street clothes and walking without a noticeable limp. We can all exhale and take a deep breath.

Brandon Marshall is undergoing an X-ray on his shoulder.

It's unclear when the injury happened, as Marshall caught a short little out route pass on the final play of the first half and didn't appear to be injured on the play. He didn't come out after halftime with the starters done for the night. Marshall has long been one of the toughest receivers in the league.

Brock Osweiler completed 6-of-8 passes for 25 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Browns' second preseason game against the Giants.

Osweiler got the start and played the first two series before giving way to rookie DeShone Kizer, who the Browns wanted to see get some work with the starters. Osweiler's first series ended with him throwing a red-zone interception off a tipped pass at the line. Despite being a towering 6-foot-7, tipped passes have long been a problem for Osweiler due to a long, looping delivery. Osweiler's completion percentage looks great, but his receivers had to adjust to a number of poorly thrown balls. Accuracy remains a massive problem. Cleveland doesn't stand much of a chance with Osweiler.

Leonard Fournette (foot) has been ruled out for the Jaguars' third preseason game.

It's a quick rule-out, but the Jaguars do play Thursday night on a short week. The third preseason game is viewed as the most important as the regular-season dress rehearsal, and it's unlikely Fournette will play in the fourth one. If he's done for the summer, Fournette will have played just 12 snaps. He said he'll play Week 1, but this is the same foot that hampered Fournette at LSU.

Seahawks acquired T/G Matt Tobin and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

Seattle is scrambling for tackle options after losing George Fant. Tobin started at right guard for the 2015 Eagles, showing promise as a run blocker but getting destroyed in pass protection. He was demoted into a deep reserve role last season. Tobin should only be viewed as depth for the Seahawks.

According to NJ.com's Matt Lombardo, LeGarrette Blount has dealt with "weight issues" at Eagles camp, and has "disappointed" in practice.

Both Lombardo and NFL insider Adam Caplan have suggested Blount might not make the Eagles. Signed to a mere one-year, $1.25 million deal with next to no guarantees, Blount has reportedly been outplayed by Wendell Smallwood, and looked lost running out of the shotgun in Philly's second preseason game.

John Brown (quad) returned to Cardinals practice on Monday.

As Brown must attend an upcoming funeral, he was able to practice today and will meet the Cardinals in Atlanta for their third preseason game. It's unclear whether Brown will get snaps in the regular season dress rehearsal, but it does finally look like he's progressing. He remains a risky double-digit-round pick.
