Bengals coach Marvin Lewis declined to put a timetable on Cedric Peerman's (ankle) return at his Monday presser.

Lewis only called the injury an "ankle sprain," although Peerman exited the stadium following Sunday's win with a walking boot on his foot and using crutches. The signs point toward a potential high ankle sprain. Peerman had been giving the Bengals a big lift as a change-of-pace back. Brian Leonard figures to see a small uptick in snaps moving forward, behind BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Julio Jones left the Falcons' third preseason game with an ankle injury.

The injury appeared to happen on a deep-ball attempt to Jones. Jones came up limping, but the injury didn't look serious. We'll update when there is more info. The Falcons called Jones "questionable" to return, but we suspect he's done for the night regardless. He played ten snaps and caught a 17-yard pass.

Falcons first-round SS Keanu Neal exited Thursday night's third preseason game against the Dolphins with a knee injury.

Neal's left knee looked to buckle on a replay, but reports are trainers were working on his right knee. Neal had to be escorted off the field and eventually walked to the locker room under his own power. It was a non-contact injury. Neal is supposed to be coach Dan Quinn's new Kam Chancellor.

The Indianapolis Star calls Robert Turbin the Colts' "likely No. 2 back."

During an abysmal preseason, spring hype bunny Josh Ferguson has plummeted to No. 4 on the depth chart behind Turbin and Jordan Todman. Todman is also a core special teams player, which assures him a spot on the game-day roster. Assuming Ferguson even makes the 53, he could open the season as a healthy scratch.

Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius Fantasy show, ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold stated that Trevor Siemian "has won the starting job."

Siemian apparently "won the starting job" in a preseason game he was pick sixed by 49ers FS Eric Reid. More accurately, Mark Sanchez outright lost the starting job with three turnovers in Denver's first two exhibitions, and Paxton Lynch isn't quite ready yet. Siemian is on track to start Week 1, but if he starts the season slow, coach Gary Kubiak could have a quick hook.

Free agent S Donte Whitner will visit the Panthers on Friday.

It could be an indication the Panthers aren't sold on third-year pro Tre Boston opposite FS Kurt Coleman. Whitner was cut by the rebuilding Browns in April, but had a passable 2015. Whitner's lone previous visit came in April to the Rams, but he's the kind of player who could get a big boost from the Panthers' DB-friendly scheme. He can't be that much worse than Roman Harper.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, headaches) is "holding out hope" he'll be ready for Week 1, but acknowledges his rehab has gone "very slow."

It's still unclear what Green is even "rehabbing." He's adopted the team's party line that he's not dealing with headaches, but his own agent has said it's not his ankle. It's a ridiculously-muddled situation, one that makes Green a no-go as anything other than a risk/reward TE2.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Cowboys had "some concern" when Ezekiel Elliott reported to training camp at 231 pounds before pulling his hamstring.

231 is only six pounds heavier than Elliott's 225-pound Combine weigh-in, but it still wasn't ideal. Breer also said Zeke "worked off some of that weight" before suffering the injury. "As a player, I loved him to death," one NFL scout told Breer. "He’s the highest graded back I’ve ever done. He does everything well—running, catching, pass pro. But as far as going to Dallas, the bright lights, big city, I’ve always thought it could be tough for him. He likes football. He also likes everything that goes along with being a star." Elliott could silence some of his critics by turning in a big preseason game Thursday night against the Seahawks.

John Brown (concussion) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday.

Brown's Wednesday headache looks like it was just a scare after he returned from his concussion on Sunday. It's still obviously a situation to monitor, and a concern heading into Week 1. Brown will probably be held out of this weekend's regular season dress rehearsal.

Patriots acquired DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo from the Browns.

The return compensation is unclear, but like many August trades, it's probably a conditional day-three pick. The No. 6 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Mingo has been a comprehensive bust, tallying seven career sacks, only two of which have come in the past two seasons. The Pats are low on edge depth, however, and Mingo was drafted by former Patriots associate Michael Lombardi in Cleveland. He'll start on special teams and fight for snaps on defense.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports J.J. Watt (back, PUP) expects to return to practice next week.

That would give Watt a fighting chance at suiting up for Week 1, but it would still be far from a guarantee. Watt has yet to practice this summer, and missed most of the offseason as he recovered from groin/core surgery. Another possibility is that Watt is ready for the opener but stuck on a snap count.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Texans LT Duane Brown (quad, PUP) won't be ready for Week 1, and could revert to the reserve/PUP list.

The PUP list would cost Brown the first six games of the season after he tore his quad last Week 17. The Texans are now without their left tackle and center for Week 1, and quite possibly beyond. C Nick Martin is out for the season. RT Derek Newton is battling a lingering hamstring injury. As NFL.com's Chris Wesseling points out, the Texans' lineup for the opener may feature only two returning starters on offense. That's rare in college, let alone the NFL.
