Cam Newton completed 19-of-33 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers' Week 15 win over the Chargers.

He scrambled four times for seven yards. The Panthers at this point in the season are a team playoff contenders shouldn't want to play. They've shredded San Diego and Atlanta on the road the past two weeks, playing dynamite offense and competitive defense. Newton was "vultured" on two goal-line scores by Mike Tolbert Sunday, but was sharp in the passing game, leading three first-quarter touchdown drives that put the game well out of hand early. Newton has been arguably the NFL's hottest quarterback for the past two months. The Panthers will close out fantasy season versus the hapless Raiders in Week 16.

Delanie Walker left the Titans' third preseason game after the first quarter with an apparent illness.

CBS Sports' Tracy Wolfson reports Walker "didn't feel right" and "couldn't catch his breath." He walked back into the locker room and is officially questionable to return. Walker played a few snaps but was not targeted before exiting. The issue does not appear serious right now, but it is a situation to monitor.

Eagles rookie Wendell Smallwood left Saturday's third preseason game with a head injury.

He's presumably being tested for a concussion. Before going down, Smallwood worked as the Eagles' No. 4 back behind Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, and Kenjon Barner. Smallwood had two carries for 11 yards and a five-yard catch prior to exiting. He may open the season on Philly's game-day inactives list.

Andrew Luck completed 13-of-18 passes for 134 yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night.

He rushed once for two yards. The biggest takeaway from this game was the atrociousness of the Colts' offensive line, which gave up three sacks in two quarters and at least four more hits on Luck. Luck was efficient in the rare instances he had time to throw, hooking up with Donte Moncrief five times for 52 yards and T.Y. Hilton for 3-38 on five targets. Luck also found Josh Ferguson for a 16 yards on a well-designed screen. Luck's protection remains an obstacle in his quest for a full-on rebound to his elite 2014 form.

Kenneth Dixon suffered a left knee sprain in Saturday's preseason game.

Dixon's knee bent awkwardly on a second quarter goal-line carry. He had to be helped off and was immediately taken to the locker room. Dixon was having a strong game before going down, rushing for 41 yards on six carries while playing with the first-team offense. Early signs suggest he avoided a serious injury, but there should be more on his status early next week.

Paxton Lynch will be the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Trevor Siemian will draw the start with Mark Sanchez slotting in as the third-string QB. The pieces of Denver's quarterback puzzle are starting to come together with Siemian the favorite to start Week 1 and Sanchez now fighting for his roster spot. Lynch has done some good things this preseason, completing 21-of-33 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns. He could put heat on Siemian with another strong showing on Saturday.

Ben Watson suffered a torn Achilles' in Saturday's preseason game.

Watson went down on the first play of the night. It's a huge blow to a pass game that relies heavily on tight ends. The Ravens could end up getting nothing on the two-year, $7 million deal they gave Watson this offseason. With Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams sidelined, Baltimore is down to Crockett Gillmore.

49ers coach Chip Kelly continues to claim the team's quarterback competition remains open.

Blaine Gabbert has done nothing to run with the job, but Colin Kaepernick has somehow done even less. All signs have pointed to Gabbert under center for the opener for weeks now. Kap has seemed checked out of San Francisco since last season, and has seen his on-field performance deteriorate at an alarming rate. All he's really accomplished this summer is setting off constitutional debates on Twitter.

Rams signed WR Tavon Austin to a four-year, $42 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes a whopping $30 million guaranteed, a princely sum for a 5-foot-8 gadget player the Rams have desperately wishcasted as a No. 1 receiver since trading up for him in the 2013 draft. Austin is coming off a unique season where he eclipsed both 400 yards rushing and receiving, but simply isn't worthy of this kind of deal. The Rams under Jeff Fisher have a tendency to compound mistakes instead of trying to fix them. All that being said, despite now being overpaid, Austin is a useful real-life player who has WR4 appeal in fantasy. He is a legitimate playmaker. He's just not who the Rams are paying him to be.

Jeremy Langford rushed six times for 17 yards in the Bears' third preseason game.

The entire offense struggled in the first half, but as has been the case all preseason, Langford worked as the clear three-down starter, playing every snap on the Bears' first three possessions. Langford might not be a special talent, but he has a great shot to top 250 touches. He is worth a look in the fourth round.

Updating previous items, the Dallas Morning News says Tony Romo's (back) "best case" return would be after the Cowboys' Week 7 bye.

That would entail Romo missing six games, and eight weeks altogether. In all likelihood, preseason star Dak Prescott is going to make at least six starts to open the season. He is a QB2 with upside in a talented Dallas offense.
Aug 27 - 3:31 PM

Falcons waived/released QB Sean Renfree, S Sergio Brown, OL Michael Huey, RB Gus Johnson, WR Jordan Leslie, TE Arthur Lynch, LB Ivan McLennan, CB Ryan White, and DL Brandon Williams.

There are no surprises on this list. A onetime favorite of the draftnik community, Renfree was a seventh-round pick out of Duke in the 2013 draft. Renfree was outlasted by Matt Schaub and Matt Simms at Falcons training camp.
