Steelers placed CB Ike Taylor (leg), TE Heath Miller (knee) and RB Baron Batch (arm) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

There was some hope that Taylor's hairline fracture would be healed enough for him to play in Week 17, but that wouldn't make much sense now that the Steelers are eliminated from playoff contention. Taylor ended up missing the season's final month, but still put together perhaps the finest campaign of his 10-year career. He'll be well worth his $6 million 2013 salary as one of the game's better shadow corners.

Patriots waived RB Jonas Gray.

It's possible Gray is being waived/injured, as he missed the preseason finale with an undisclosed injury. Either way, it brings (a little) clarity to the Pats' jumbled backfield. Brandon Bolden and James White will mind the store during LeGarrette Blount's one-game suspension, while Blount will be the No. 1 upon his Week 1 return. Gray had a nice preseason, rolling up 107 yards on 19 carries (5.6 YPC), and averaged 4.6 yards on 89 totes a year ago. It's quite possible he'll be claimed on waivers.

Giants waived/injured WR Corey Washington.

Initial reports had Washington as merely waived. He missed the preseason finale with a shoulder injury. He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers. Washington stuck with the Giants in 2014 after turning in a mammoth preseason, but couldn't match the feat this summer, catching just three passes for 25 yards in three games. Washington still has some upside, but there's no real reason to keep him around in Dynasty leagues.

Lions waived QB Kellen Moore.

Moore has been with the Lions since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He had a solid summer, but was never going to overcome his physical limitations. Moore is undersized, and lacks arm strength. Dan Orlovsky is Matthew Stafford's backup.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported "there's a growing sense" Geno Smith could return sooner than expected.

That sense grew stronger after the Jets cut Matt Flynn and Josh Johnson on Saturday, leaving just rookie Bryce Petty behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Smith is unlikely to return to a starting job, but he could be fit enough for backup duty in the first month of the season.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reported RB Montee Ball is not among the Broncos' final cuts.

Ball's roster spot seemed all but gone after a disastrous showing in the fourth preseason game, but Denver will keep the former second-round pick around for at least another couple days. Ball could still be cut once waiver claims begin this afternoon. The Broncos may also be holding out hope they can get something back for Ball on the trade market.

The Cleveland Plain-Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reported Browns RB Terrance West's roster spot "is not necessarily safe."

Pro Football Talk reports the Browns are in the market for a veteran back, and if they find one it could mean the end for West. The sophomore running back has earned the ire of coach Mike Pettine for his "ups and downs" and will begin the season behind at least Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart if he sticks with Cleveland. The Browns have reportedly discussed bringing in Ray Rice.

Eagles released QB Tim Tebow.

Tebow's apostles took Friday's trade of Matt Barkley as a sign that he'd be the Eagles' No. 3 quarterback, but the team has instead made the increasingly-common decision to go with only two signal callers. Mark Sanchez is one of the league's most experienced backups, making a third unnecessary for the time being. Tebow was impressive as a runner this summer while making some plays with his arm, but racked up stats against third- and fourth-string defenders, and hadn't appeared to make any meaningful progress on his previous form. A surprisingly great television presence, Tebow should be headed back to ESPN's SEC Network.

Colts placed DT Arthur Jones (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Jones underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle on Friday. Jones has played just nine games since signing a five-year, $33 million contract last offseason, but was a difference maker versus the run when he was in the lineup last year. The Colts will rely on rookie DL Henry Anderson to step up in Jones' place, in addition to free agent pickup Kendall Langford. Expect another year of below-average run defense from Chuck Pagano's group.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley said rookie WR Breshad Perriman (sprained PCL) could be sidelined until October.

Perriman sprained his PCL on the first practice of training camp. Hensley reports the injury usually carries a six-to-eight week timetable, which could push his return into the second month of the season. Even when he is able to return, Perriman is a raw prospect who missed valuable practice time in training camp. It is not guaranteed he immediately jumps into the starting lineup. Perriman is becoming a less and less enticing late-round flier.

The NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported the Redskins plan to keep Robert Griffin III (concussion) on their 53-man roster.

The Washington Post also expects Griffin to stick on the team. The Redskins are taking a financial risk by retaining Griffin. His $16.155 million fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning he has to be able to pass a physical when the Redskins decide to release him next offseason. Griffin was examined by an independent neurologist late this week, but neither he nor the team have been given the results of that exam.

The Giants' official website predicts Odell Beckham will see a decrease in his numbers from last season.

Beckham put up a 91-1,205-12 line in just 12 games last season. That per-game pace was always unsustainable, but John Schmeelk and Lance Medow believe Beckham's raw numbers will decrease as well despite getting in a full season. Both writers cite the presence of a healthy Victor Cruz and Rashad Jennings, two things which cannot be taken for granted. Beckham is not going to see 11 targets a game again, but he is still an elite fantasy wide receiver.
