Dolphins selected Florida RB Mike Gillislee with the No. 164 overall pick.

Gillislee (5-11, 208) carried the Gators' passing-inept offense on his back in 2012, rushing 244 times for 1,152 yards (4.72 YPC) and 10 touchdowns. He only made 23 career receptions, but flashed a mean streak in blitz pickup. Gillislee ran 4.55 at the Combine with a 1.59 ten-yard split. He is a decisive, fluid, athletic runner with some power and shake. Gillislee's vision and decision making behind blocks are works in progress, but he has starting potential down the line. He could eventually make Daniel Thomas expendable.

DeVante Parker caught 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Dolphins' second preseason game.

Parker drew four targets from Jay Cutler in only two drives. The stats don't pop on paper, but one of the duo's missed connections was a 31-yard completion called back by holding. Parker also muffed a screen on 3rd-and-forever. Frankly, Cutler looked to be playing pitch and catch with Parker like he did Alshon Jeffery in Chicago. The Dolphins have spent the entire offseason talking Parker up. They walked the walk on Thursday.

Jay Cutler completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

The numbers don't tell the whole story, as Cutler had a 31-yard completion to DeVante Parker called back by penalty. The Dolphins also got trapped into a 3rd-and-27 thanks to a pair of holding calls. Cutler came out assertive, aggressively throwing the ball down the field and locking onto Parker like he was an Alshon Jeffery clone. It was two drives in a mid-August exhibition game, but it was promising. The Dolphins will remain run heavy, but their passing attack is going to look much different under aggressive Cutler than timid Ryan Tannehill.

Seahawks signed C Justin Britt to a three-year, $27 million extension through 2020.

He's the first Seahawks offensive lineman drafted during the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era to get a second contract in Seattle. Britt spent the first two years of his career bouncing between guard and tackle before settling in at center last season. He was a bright spot along an otherwise dismal line. 2017 will be Britt's age-26 campaign.

Thomas Rawls will miss Friday's preseason game with a "minor" ankle issue.

Eddie Lacy will start in his place. Rawls has been running ahead of Lacy with the first-team offense for over a week, but this gives Lacy a big opportunity to move back out in front. Rawls has earned universally positive reviews this summer, but any ankle issue is a concern after the catastrophic injury that ended Rawls' 2015.

49ers ILB Reuben Foster is dealing with a "mild AC joint sprain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder.

The 49ers are insisting it's a "completely different" injury than Foster's rotator cuff issue, but we'll see how true that ends up being. The team re-signed ILB Shayne Skov on Thursday. Foster was just officially anointed a starter on Tuesday. He will supposedly play in the 49ers' second preseason game on Saturday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rams DT Aaron Donald is threatening to extend his holdout into the regular season.

One source tells Schefter Donald could hold out the entire season. That's extremely unlikely, but speaks to a negotiating process that's currently going nowhere. Donald is ready to play hardball. The Rams' season kicks off in 24 days.

Speaking Thursday, commissioner Roger Goodell said reinstating suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon is "not under active consideration."

"At least hasn't made it to my desk," Goodell clarified. Gordon's most recent petition for reinstatement was denied in May. He can apply again in September. 2017 would be Gordon's age-26 season. He hasn't appeared in a regular season game since Dec. 2014.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms unsigned franchise player Le'Veon Bell plans to report to the Steelers before Week 1.

Per Schefter, it "remains unclear exactly when." Bell will probably sign and report before the calendar flips to September, but he seems extremely unlikely to see any preseason action. Bell has shown a remarkable ability to hit the ground running after long layoffs. He's a no-brainer top-two pick in every format of fantasy.

Jamison Crowder (hamstring) has returned to full practice.

The Washington Post's Mike Jones expects Crowder to be available for the second preseason game on Saturday. A real threat for 100 catches, Crowder is a great pick at the end of the sixth round.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Colts will likely place C Ryan Kelly (foot surgery) on injured reserve with the intent to designate him as one of their return players.

The center will have surgery to repair a "bone defect" on Friday. The recovery timeline was originally given as 6-8 weeks, but putting Kelly on injured reserve would force him to sit out until at least Week 9. With Kelly looking likely to miss half the season, the Colts will almost certainly attempt to bring in outside help. They met with Jeremy Zuttah this week.

49ers GM John Lynch said the team is "very pleased" with TE Vance McDonald.

The 49ers attempted to trade McDonald earlier this offseason, but Lynch praised his work in the preseason opener last week. "Even though it didn’t show up on the stat sheet, it was as good as I’ve seen him block," Lynch said. "And he competed extremely hard. We were very proud of Vance." McDonald started that game, and with rookie George Kittle dealing with a hamstring injury, he has a good shot to establish himself as the lead option.
