Ravens ILB Jameel McClain (neck/back) is unlikely to need surgery.

McClain's injury is "resolving itself." It's great news after he suffered a scary spinal cord contusion in Week 14 and was quickly ruled out for the season. The Ravens are counting on McClain to step in as a starting inside linebacker with Ray Lewis retired.

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.

Seahawks waived/injured RB Robert Turbin.

Marshawn Lynch's primary backup the past two seasons, Turbin has an ankle injury that will cost him five weeks, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like a high ankle sprain, potentially with ligament damage. RapSheet suggests Turbin could be claimed off waivers, though he didn't put anything positive on tape this preseason, decreasing the odds he is. If Turbin is not claimed, he will head to the Seahawks' injured reserve list. The Seahawks will enter the season with Fred Jackson as Lynch's clear-cut backup. They are reportedly shopping Christine Michael in trade talks, and would like to keep UDFA Thomas Rawls.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the Seahawks are shopping RB Christine Michael.

With Fred Jackson now in the fold and promising rookie Thomas Rawls behind him on the depth chart, Michael is likely viewed as expendable. Inconsistency has always been Michael's modus operandi, and he reportedly was struggling with the same issues in training camp this year. Michael has a ton of natural ability, however, and would be an excellent pickup for a backfield lacking top-end talent. Dallas would be an interesting option.

Raiders will release QB Christian Ponder.

Signed to a one-year, $2.25 million deal in the offseason, Ponder's history with new Raiders OC Bill Musgrave couldn't save him from the chopping block. He was soundly outplayed by Matt McGloin in the preseason. The 12th overall pick in the 2011 draft, 27-year-old Ponder's tendency to play scared and drop his eyes under duress has him on the verge of falling out of the NFL.

Colts acquired LB Sio Moore from the Raiders in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2016.

We're going to go out on a limb and guess this deal works out better than Colts GM Ryan Grigson's Jerry Hughes and Trent Richardson trades. For whatever reason, Moore was immediately disliked by the new Jack Del Rio coaching staff in Oakland despite piling up 7.5 sacks, 140 tackles, and two forced fumbles in his first two NFL seasons. The 66th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Moore turned 25 years old in May. He can play inside and outside linebacker and should become a contributor as the season moves along. The Colts also acquire Moore's contract, which puts him under Indy's control for near-minimum base salaries the next two seasons. The Colts should win this one pretty handily.

Seahawks signed RB Fred Jackson to a one-year contract.

Robert Turbin (ankle) is out indefinitely, and the Seahawks don't trust Christine Michael as a clear-cut backup. Long tight with Marshawn Lynch from their time together in Buffalo, Jackson is 34 1/2 years old but still set career highs in receptions and receiving yards last season, and can get what's blocked as a runner. It's possible he'll maintain the Seahawks' No. 2 running back job even when Turbin returns. Turbin was unimpressive this preseason coming off hip surgery, lacking burst and change of direction en route to a 16-36 rushing line.

The Denver Post suggests Cody Latimer might not open the season as the Broncos' No. 3 receiver.

Latimer impressed in Denver's exhibition opener, but he was a disappointment in the final three games, getting outplayed by Andre Caldwell and Jordan Norwood. The Post's Troy Renck suggests Caldwell and Norwood could "receive opportunities before (Latimer)" behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. At this point, Latimer is barely even a consideration in re-draft leagues.

Jaguars waived RB Storm Johnson.

The No. 222 overall pick of last year's draft, Johnson made one start and notched 29 carries as a rookie, but averaged just 3.0 yards per tote. He's pretty much the definition of a replacement-level back. The Jaguars have also waived CB Jeremy Harris, TE Ben Koyack, WR Neal Sterling, DE Cap Capi, DT Richard Ash, DE Camaron Beard, WR Kasey Closs, OG Will Corbin, TE Connor Hamlett, DE Ike Igbinosun, WR Erik Lora, OG Chris Reed, CB Rashaad Reynolds, LB Todd Thomas, CB Peyton Thompson and WR Tony Washington.

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) has vowed to be ready for Week 1.

McCoy made the proclamation in a text message to ESPN's Josina Anderson. He was more diplomatic following Friday's practice, saying "we'll see." Coach Rex Ryan has generally suggested McCoy will be ready to go against the Colts. Our first concrete clue will come with the Bills' first official injury report on Wednesday.

Dolphins released QB Josh Freeman.

Freeman was previously released in July before being re-signed four days later. The former first-rounder's downward spiral continued unabated this summer, as he completed just 23-of-48 preseason passes (47.9 percent). It's been a bizarre career for the now 27-year-old quarterback. Freeman might not get another chance.
