The LCL sprain in Robert Griffin's right knee is of the Grade 1 variety.

Grade 1 is the least severe kind of sprain and it means Griffin merely stretched the ligament to the point that there might be some very minor tears. Athletes are capable of playing through this injury with their knee braced up. "You're hoping with rehab it gets better very quickly," coach Mike Shanahan said. "But we don't know for sure. ... He's definitely not ruled out for the Cleveland game." RG3's dad told the Associated Press that his son was "feeling good" and that "we will know by Thursday."

C.J. Prosise rushed four times for 23 yards in his preseason debut Thursday night.

Although he didn't quite stuff the stat sheet, this was a big step forward for Prosise after an injury-plagued spring and beginning to camp. He worked as the Seahawks' first-team third-down back behind Christine Michael, and also mixed in on some second-and-long plays. Neither Michael nor Thomas Rawls is adept in the passing game, so Prosise could have a Week 1 role. Prosise should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and belongs on re-draft watch lists.

Dak Prescott completed 17-of-23 passes for 116 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding two rushes for 12 yards.

Through three exhibition contests, Prescott is 39-of-50 passing (78.0 percent) for 454 yards (9.08 YPA) and a 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio with 53 yards and two more scores on seven carries. That makes seven all-purpose touchdowns for Dak, compared to zero turnovers. The sample size remains small and Prescott has been put in consistently favorable situations by Dallas' coaching staff, but he also warrants recognition as one of the NFL's best preseason stories. He particularly excelled under pressure in Thursday night's game at Seattle, keeping the offense on the move despite the absence of Dez Bryant (concussion).

Tyler Lockett caught 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game.

Lockett's score was a nine-yard grab where he worked himself open in the end zone for a scrambling Russell Wilson. It was the kind of big play that's become Lockett's signature, though he still appears to be third on the depth chart behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. He was even out-snapped by Paul Richardson with the first-team offense. Lockett is one of the league's most dynamic playmakers, but the Seahawks could be reluctant to overexpose him on offense because of how dangerous he is on special teams. Lockett is going to have some big fantasy weeks, but could be too unpredictable to be a reliable WR3.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's third preseason game.

His touchdown came from eight yards out on a rainbow from Russell Wilson. A 4.4-flat speedster whose first two NFL seasons were washed out by injuries, Richardson was a second-round pick in the 2014 draft. He played more first-team snaps than Tyler Lockett in Thursday's exhibition game and looks to have secured a role in Seattle's receiver rotation. Richardson is worth stashing in deep Dynasty leagues. He is a threat to Lockett's 2016 re-draft value.

Christine Michael rushed seven times for 58 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Thursday night.

A resurgent C-Mike now has 24 preseason carries for 157 yards, good for a 6.5 yards-per-carry average. He has both grinded out tough yards and showed big-play ability this August while earning the trust of the Seahawks' coaching staff. If you aren't taking Michael serious by now, your head is in the sand. Michael has dominated first-team snaps with Russell Wilson. Even if it isn't as the Seahawks' starter over Rawls, Michael has earned a meaningful early-season role in Seattle's post-Marshawn Lynch backfield.

Appearing on the Cowboys' telecast during Thursday night's preseason game, Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones insisted Tony Romo is "not injured."

Jones referred to Romo's back as "tight or jammed," and reiterated that the Cowboys rested Romo after just three snaps on a "coaches' decision." Expect the team to take it easy on Romo for the remainder of August and into early September. The Cowboys open the season on September 11 against the Giants.

Ezekiel Elliott rushed seven times for 48 yards in his preseason debut Thursday night.

He also stood out with two key blitz pickups. Running against Seattle's first-team defense, Elliott showed decisiveness between the tackles and quick cutting ability when sprung onto the second level by Dallas' beastly offensive line. Zeke operated as the Cowboys' every-down back until taking a seat next to Romo and handing the reins to Alfred Morris for the rest of the night. Morris has played well enough in August to have earned an early-season role, but Elliott is Dallas' clear bellcow back. In fantasy drafts, Zeke is worth consideration beginning at the first-/second-round turn.

Kenny Stills caught 4-of-6 targets for 46 yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game.

Most importantly, Stills played ahead of DeVante Parker in two-receiver sets. The Dolphins are going to be a base-three-receiver team, but Stills' ascension is notable because he's generated minimal buzz in the fantasy community. NBC's Cris Collinsworth noted during Thursday night's game that the Dolphins "are stunned at what a great leader Kenny Stills has turned into." In Miami's last two preseason games, Stills has 117 yards and two touchdowns on seven catches. Particularly in best-ball leagues, Stills needs to be taken seriously as a late-round fantasy pick.

Updating a previous item, the Falcons held Julio Jones out of the remainder of their third preseason game as a precaution.

Julio was initially reported to have left with an ankle injury after a failed deep-ball attempt, but NBC's Michele Tafoya confirmed Julio is okay. Jones is safe to continue selecting in the top-three picks of fantasy drafts.
Aug 25 - 9:48 PM

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.
