ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers have scheduled a physical for free agent Plaxico Burress.

Antonio Brown remains out with a high ankle sprain, and fill-in third receiver Jerricho Cotchery suffered an undisclosed injury in Sunday night's loss to the Ravens. The Steelers likely wouldn't have made their interest in Plax known unless they intended to sign him. It sounds like this deal should get done by Tuesday. Burress, 35, has been out of football this season. He caught 45 balls for 612 yards and eight touchdowns with the Jets in 2011.

Antonio Brown secured 4-of-4 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' third preseason game.

Brown did all of his damage in just over eight minutes of action. The Steelers' offense cut through the Saints' barely-there defense like a hot knife in butter. Brown was Ben Roethlisberger's go-to guy as usual, dusting past Saints rookie CB De'Vante Harris on his 57-yard touchdown. Due to the Steelers' weapons shortage, Brown has the highest raw target projection in the league this season. He should be the consensus 1.01 fantasy pick.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 12-of-17 passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns in two possessions during Thursday night's third preseason game.

As Ben should, he carved up the Saints' swiss-cheese defense amidst zero pass rush. Picking on rookie CB De'Vante Harris, Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown for a 57-yard TD after connecting with TE Jesse James in the red zone for his first score. Roethlisberger's weaponry has taken a hit, but he remains a top-eight fantasy quarterback. His ADP is just a bit rich for our taste.

Cam Newton completed 8-of-20 passes for 61 yards and two interceptions Friday night against the Patriots.

Newton struggled all night, overthrowing Kelvin Benjamin badly on two early throws and showing inconsistent accuracy despite little to no pressure. Both interceptions came on back-foot throws, the first of which was a terrible ball thrown ball both short and too far infield. Newton was victimized by a few drops including a sure touchdown muffed by Ed Dickson. It was an ugly game, but ultimately not much of a concern for the reigning MVP. He is still safe to take as the overall QB1.

Rookie RB Keith Marshall exited Friday night's preseason game with a sprained elbow.

It's probably a day-to-day injury, but will cost Marshall a big opportunity with Matt Jones (shoulder) inactive. Marshall was rotating first-team snaps with Rob Kelley in the Kirk Cousins group before going for X-rays on his arm. Marshall's injury may force the Skins to add a running back via free agency or trade.

Blaine Gabbert is expected to start the 49ers' third preseason game.

As ESPN's Bob Holtzman notes, it's an "indication" Colin Kaepernick "will have to play really well" to win the 49ers' starting job. It won't be hard to play better than Gabbert, but Gabbert getting the start in the regular season dress rehearsal remains notable. Gabbert can probably still escape as the likely Week 1 starter if he plays competently and Kaepernick struggles at all.

Dolphins WLB Jelani Jenkins will undergo a knee scope.

The Fins also lost rotational DE Terrence Fede to a sprained MCL. Jenkins is coming off a 71-tackle season across 13 starts. He is regarded as Miami's top coverage linebacker. The Dolphins' defensive back seven is a total mess.

Cowboys.com's Bryan Broaddus believes Ezekiel Elliott is not yet in "football shape."

This is just one man's opinion, but comes via a trusted team insider who works for the Cowboys. It's actually not surprising that Zeke isn't yet in Week 1-ready condition after he missed most of the beginning of camp with a hamstring issue. Elliott only resumed practicing fully about ten days ago. Elliott, of course, still beasted with 7-48 rushing against Seattle's first-team defense while working as an every-down back on the first two possessions Thursday night. He could be seen huffing and puffing after a few of his runs. Scarily, Broaddus believes Zeke "can run better" than he did against the Seahawks. Elliott has 16 more days to get himself in full football shape.

Jimmy Garoppolo will start the Patriots' third preseason game.

Tom Brady is over his thumb injury, but the Patriots want to get Garoppolo reps with the starters in their dress rehearsal. Brady is expected to play "at some point" in Friday night's game.

The Colts are hosting free agent RB Stevan Ridley for a visit.

The Colts are desperate for running back depth, where career JAG Bob Turbin is currently the favorite for No. 2 duties behind Frank Gore. Josh Ferguson has fallen onto the roster bubble, while Jordan Todman never seems to be able to nail down an NFL home. Ridley, 27, probably isn't the answer. He has looked washed up in stints with the Jets and Lions since a 2014 ACL tear.

Tyler Eifert (ankle) is targeting Weeks 4-6 for his return, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Cincinnati Enquirer hinted Friday that Eifert was still holding out hope for Week 1, but Rapsheet's report seems to eliminate that possibility. Eifert only recently resumed jogging after undergoing ankle surgery three months ago. If Rapoport's timetable holds, the earliest we'd see Eifert back on the field would be September 29 against Miami. Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd figure to be more involved in the passing game while Eifert is sidelined.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the NFL "seems content" with Jerry Jones' "rebuke" of Ezekiel Elliott for visiting a marijuana store in Seattle.

A league source did tell Werder, however, that there remains a "pattern of behavior concern" with Elliott, who is also being investigated for domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend. There have been no developments in the domestic violence case. Elliott is in the clear at the moment, but he needs to start walking a finer line. The NFL is certainly keeping a close watch.
