CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora reports Kevin Kolb will miss "six weeks or more" with multiple injuries sustained in Week 6.

Playing behind the Cardinals' offensive line produces injury reports that look like the fallout from an auto accident. In addition to a sprained sternoclavicular joint and detached ribs, Kolb also suffered a shoulder injury against the Bills. The Cardinals have already used their "designated for return" I.R. spot on Beanie Wells, so that won't be an option for Kolb. John Skelton will take over as the starter with rookie Ryan Lindley in reserve. Richard Bartel is not eligible to be re-signed until Monday.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette expects Eli Rogers to open the season as the Steelers' No. 3 receiver.

Bouchette calls Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey "backups" behind Rogers, Markus Wheaton, and Antonio Brown. It's possible Bouchette's mind could change after Pittsburgh's third preseason game, where Ben Roethlisberger will see his first action this August. At this moment, however, Rogers is in the driver's seat to start in the slot in Week 1, with Wheaton moving outside.

Suspended free agent RB Karlos Williams visited the Jets.

It's Williams' first-known visit since he cleared waivers on Monday. ESPN New York's termed the visit as "due diligence," and says a deal is not imminent. Suspended and overweight, Williams will be signing at the nadir of his value if he finds a new home this week. His best course of action may be getting his body right and building his extremely slim leverage.

Titans TE Craig Stevens is retiring after eight years in the league.

The No. 85 overall pick of the 2008 draft, Stevens is forfeiting $2 million by hanging it up. Of course, it's quite possible the decision comes after the Titans told him he wasn't going to make the team. A blocking specialist, Stevens spent his entire eight-year career in Tennessee, catching 60 passes and scoring six touchdowns.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden has "total expectation" Josh Doctson (Achilles) will be ready for Week 1.

"He did the route tree today, which is very positive," Gruden said Tuesday. "I have total expectation that he’s going to be ready Week 1, possibly the fourth preseason game, but we’ll still see. Like I said, it’s a new injury to me." Gruden also refused to rule out the reserve/PUP list in the same press conference, but it seems like coachspeak in the full context of his comments. The Redskins open the season 20 days from today.

Joe Flacco (knee) will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.

In the final stages of his recovery from a torn ACL, Flacco sat out Baltimore's first two exhibition tilts. "You need to get back out there (and) you need to get your mind used to getting ready for a game," Flacco said. "And then, yeah, I need to get over that last hurdle, which is going out there and being a live target for guys to hit and see how I react to it." It's important for the entire offense, as the third preseason game serves as a team's "regular season dress rehearsal," so to speak. Flacco has said his knee still isn't 100 percent, but he hasn't missed a rep this summer.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the draft pick Denver traded for Mark Sanchez was a conditional pick.

That means the Broncos will not owe the Eagles anything if they decide to release Sanchez at final cuts. After losing out to Trevor Siemian for the starting job, Sanchez now appears to be competing with rookie Paxton Lynch for his roster spot. The Broncos could also save $3.5 million by releasing Sanchez.

Breshad Perriman (knee) said he has "no doubt" he will be ready for Week 1.

Perriman reportedly "showed little effects" of his knee injury in his return to practice Tuesday. He is unlikely to play in the third preseason game this week, but it would not be surprising if he is cleared for team drills in the near future. Even if he is healthy enough to play Week 1, Perriman is unlikely to have a big role coming off a lost rookie season.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) will play Thursday.

Adam Schefter reported as much on Monday, but it is nice to get the confirmation. Garrett said the plan is for Zeke to see 8-to-12 touches in his NFL debut. Even with Alfred Morris shining in the preseason, Elliott should open the season as the clear workhorse in Dallas.

Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson said second-rounder Tyler Boyd is the "unquestioned leader in the clubhouse" in the battle for the No. 2 receiver job.

This statement comes just a day after The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. speculated the Bengals plan to ease Boyd into action. The primary takeaway here is this situation remains as fluid as any in the league. If Brandon LaFell (hand) can prove his health and effectiveness, he will likely open the season as the starter opposite A.J. Green with Boyd working from the slot. If LaFell struggles, Boyd should get his shot.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Eric Ebron (ankle) is expected to play Week 1.

Ebron has been sidelined since August 6 with what Caplan called a "pretty decent ankle sprain." Despite the severity of the injury, Caplan reports Ebron has a shot to play in the fourth preseason game, but it seems unlikely the Lions risk him in a throwaway contest. Even with the missed time, Ebron remains one of the most interesting upside-TE2 picks in fantasy drafts.

Patriots DE Jabaal Sheard has a sprained MCL.

Sheard suffered the injury in the first preseason game on August 11. MCL sprains usually carry a two-to-four week timetable, so it is likely he will be ready for the season opener on September 11. With Chandler Jones now in Arizona, Sheard is perhaps the most important asset on the defensive line. The Patriots need him healthy.
