Two separate NFL scouts say Florida DT Sharrif Floyd is overrated, with one going so far as to call Floyd a media creation.

It's worth noting Floyd had only 4.5 sacks in three college seasons. He's been touted hard by Greg Cosell, Mike Mayock, and Daniel Jeremiah, among others. "Those idiots on TV made Floyd," said one scout. "He's not that good. He's not better than Ziggy Hood." Asked if the Warren Sapp comparisons are valid, another scout replied "No. There's none of that. (Sapp) was just was more gifted than Floyd. Floyd is a good effort player. He's got shorter arms than (Sheldon) Richardson, and I think it shows. He gets kind of Velcroed on blockers."

Barring a "major upset," the Miami Herald expects LT Branden Albert (knee) to be ready for Week 1.

Plugged-in reporter Armando Salguero believes only a setback could hold Albert out of the Dolphins' opener. His reports comes only three days after and equally-trustworthy Adam Caplan reported Albert was unlikely to return before Week 3. Albert himself has been noncommittal on his status, but we'll lean toward him suiting up against the Redskins in Week 1.

Jets placed TE Jace Amaro (shoulder surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The 23-year-old tight end has a torn labrum. He suffered the injury in the Jets' preseason opener. It's a bitterly disappointing end to what needed to be a big season for a player who underwhelmed as a rookie. Now Amaro will enter his third camp next summer on the hot seat after being the No. 49 overall pick of last year's draft. Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Davis are the next men up on the depth chart. It's a sorry group. Amaro is an end-of-bench type in Dynasty leagues.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (hamstring) will play in Thursday's preseason finale.

It's a sign his roster spot is far from assured. Johnson has barely practiced since signing two weeks ago, and Bruce Arians isn't the kind of coach who makes moves on faith. CJ has to show something to crack Arizona's running back corps.

According to Pro Football Focus, Jimmy Graham has been used as a run blocker on 36.5 percent of his 52 preseason snaps.

Graham was used as a run blocker on 27.1 percent of his snaps in New Orleans last season. Seattle threw the ball 200 fewer times than the Saints last season, meaning Graham is almost certain to see fewer than the 138 targets he has averaged the last four seasons. He has the touchdown upside to make up for the lost volume, but he is being over-drafted in the third round.

Fox Sports reported Packers WR Randall Cobb will be able to play Week 1.

Cobb injured himself in the third preseason game. A source told Fox Sports all "indicators" are Cobb will be able to play in the regular season opener. With Jordy Nelson (ACL) done for the year, Cobb has a chance to better his career highs in catches (91) and receiving yards (1,287) set last season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent RB Fred Jackson will meet with the Seahawks on Tuesday.

Rapoport said both sides expect a deal to get done. Cut by the Bills on Monday, Jackson would provide a veteran presence behind starter Marshawn Lynch, his former teammate in Buffalo and a player with whom he is reportedly close. Bringing in Jackson could signal the end of the line for Christine Michael.

MLive's Kyle Meinke said, "Joique Bell remains the Lions' No. 1 tailback — for now, at least."

The for now is important. Bell struggled at the beginning of last season after an unhealthy offseason, and a similar start could see Bell fall behind Ameer Abdullah in the pecking order. For now, though, he still projects as the Week 1 starter in Detroit. Fantasy favorite Zach Zenner is well down the depth chart.

Raiders waived RB Trent Richardson.

Oakland will eat the $600,000 it guaranteed Richardson back in March. We figured the Colts' release of Richardson would serve as a swift kick in the pants for the former No. 3 overall pick, but he ended up reporting to Raiders camp overweight and didn't impress anyone in the organization this preseason, rushing for 42 scoreless yards on 15 carries (2.8 YPC) and breaking one measly tackle. Richardson is running out of chances, but we expect him to get one more.

Rishard Matthews started the Dolphins' third preseason game over Kenny Stills.

Stills battled a calf injury early in camp and missed the first couple weeks of practice in addition to the first preseason game. Across 35 snaps this preseason, Stills has caught 3-of-4 targets for 31 scoreless yards. It's still early, and Stills has gobs of talent, but he needs to stay on the field and start building a rapport with Ryan Tannehill. Jarvis Landry, Greg Jennings, and Matthews started on Saturday, with Stills mixing in behind them. OC Bill Lazor recently praised Matthews.

Patriots waived WR Josh Boyce, WR Jonathan Krause, TE Jimmay Mundine, DL Joe Vellano and LB Dekoda Watson.

A 2013 fourth-rounder, it's the second year in a row Boyce hasn't survived through final cuts. Although Boyce ended up making one 2014 appearance, this should be the end of the line for his time with the Patriots. Boyce has serious speed, but has dealt with injuries, and never got in rhythm with Tom Brady.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell called Week 4 a "realistic" return target for Julius Thomas (hand surgery).

Thomas has already been essentially ruled out for the first three games of the season. It sounds like returning in Week 4 against the Colts would be a best case scenario. Expect Allen Robinson to be a target monster in the meantime, and for Allen Hurns to also see a bump in early-season usage.
