Texans agreed to terms with No. 195 overall pick WR Alan Bonner on a four-year contract.

Making the transition from the FCS Ohio Valley Conference, Bonner will try to make the Texans as a return man even though his 4.59 in the 40-yard dash leaves much to be desired. If Bonner sees time on offense, it will be down the line, and not as a rookie.

According to owner Jim Irsay, Colts LG Jack Mewhort's knee injury will only sideline him 2-4 weeks.

NFL Network reported late Saturday that Mewhort was "believed" to have torn his ACL. The Colts are catching a huge break here, as Mewhort is their best offensive lineman and the anchor between struggling LT Anthony Castonzo and rookie C Ryan Kelly. It appears Mewhort escaped with a knee sprain. The 2-4 week timetable still makes Mewhort doubtful for Week 1 against Detroit.

Teddy Bridgewater completed 12-of-16 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' third preseason game.

He added a 22-yard scramble. Bridgewater was sharp despite missing recent practices due to arm fatigue, connecting with Stefon Diggs for 5-71 receiving on five targets and throwing a TD pass to Kyle Rudolph. The low-volume nature of Minnesota's passing offense is Teddy's biggest hurdle in the way of fantasy football impact. That could change if Adrian Peterson went down.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver was carted off the field in Sunday's preseason game with a torn right Achilles'.

We're not doctors, but you could practically see Oliver's Achilles' tendon pop in slow motion. The Chargers have since confirmed. Oliver will be done for the season. Oliver is a jack-of-all-trades backup behind Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon. It leaves the Bolts with little room for error if Woodhead gets hurt or Gordon doesn't take a step forward.

Colts signed RB Stevan Ridley.

It's an acknowledgment of how desperately little the Colts have behind 33-year-old starter Frank Gore. Ridley couldn't beat out Zach Zenner in Detroit, and was cut after taking the ball nine times for 27 yards (3.0 YPC) in two preseason games. We'd say he doesn't have good roster odds, but his "competition" is Bob Turbin, Jordan Todman and Josh Ferguson. There's a decent chance he'll crack Indy's dilapidated running back corps.

Chiefs holdout S Eric Berry reported to the team's facility on Sunday.

Berry staged a lengthy holdout after failing to reach a long-term deal with the Chiefs this offseason but is ready to get back to playing football. It may take Berry a few days to get up to speed but he should be ready for the Chiefs' season opener in two weeks. The 27-year-old was a first-team All-Pro last season and also earned Comeback Player of the Year honors.

Falcons signed SS Dashon Goldson, formerly of the Redskins, to a one-year contract.

Goldson must have looked good at Saturday's workout because it took the Falcons less than 24 hours to sign him. It's a smart deal for Atlanta with rookie Keanu Neal slated to miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing a knee scope. Despite his All-Pro pedigree, the 31-year-old Goldson will likely begin the year backing up Kemal Ishmael at strong safety.

Jared Goff suffered a bruised tailbone in Saturday's preseason game.

X-rays confirmed no fracture. Goff had another rough night against the Broncos, completing just 4-of-12 passes 45 yards. He's looked fragile throughout August and clearly isn't ready to take the reigns as L.A.'s starting quarterback. Considering what the Rams gave up for him (and who's ahead of him on the depth chart), Goff's play this preseason has been a major disappointment.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio insisted Latavius Murray's reduced playing time in the third preseason game was not indicative of Murray's starting job coming into question.

Murray took a backseat as rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard ran with the Derek Carr group. Del Rio insists Murray is not falling into a committee, saying "we saw (Latavius) last year. We need to find out who will be the backup." Both rookies shined, with Washington totaling 53 yards and a touchdown on 11 touches and Richard parlaying nine touches into 42 yards. Washington is a recommended handcuff for Murray in all leagues.

After Delanie Walker left the Titans' third preseason game due to "not feeling right," coach Mike Mularkey assured that Walker is "fine."

Walker exited in the first quarter due to a "loss of breath," but apparently it was an innocuous scare. While Tajae Sharpe has been ripping up August, Walker has managed one preseason catch for nine yards. He remains a top-ten TE1.

Brandon Marshall was held out of the Jets' third preseason game due to a "sore hip."

Coach Todd Bowles said the decision to hold out Marshall was made on Friday. "I just need him ready for opening day and I think he'll be fine," said Bowles. Marshall has a history of hip problems, so this might be something to keep an eye on. Marshall will be 32 1/2 years old when the season starts.

DeAndre Washington rushed eight times for 55 yards and caught a six-yard touchdown in the Raiders' third preseason game.

With Washington and Jalen Richard competing for a backup job, the Raiders gave both plenty of work with the first-team Saturday night. Washington seemed to be the front-runner for the job, seeing snaps early in the first possession and capping off the drive with a six-yard touchdown. He also saw extensive work in the red zone at the end of the first half. Washington looked explosive with the ball in his hands Saturday, sprinting through a big hole for a 31-yard gain in the second quarter. He did lose a fumble in the second half, but he was hung out to dry by backup QB Matt McGloin. If Washington wins the backup job, he should push Latavius Murray for work early in the season.
