Cowboys RCB Morris Claiborne (knee) ran for the first time since August 6 on Wednesday, but has yet to resume practicing.

Claiborne is recovering from a "jammed" — read: sprained — knee. This is the second straight camp Claiborne has dealt with a minor knee issue, but he's fully expected to be ready for Week 1. He is, however, losing valuable install time in new DC Monte Kiffin's system.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram suggests Joseph Randle may open the season handling 10-15 carries per game "with (Darren) McFadden slightly below that."

"At the end of the day, we’re both going to get carries however they decide to play it out," said McFadden. Both backs seem resigned to the fact that the Cowboys are committed to a running back by committee. Beat writer Drew Davison confirms none of Dallas' backs "has done enough to separate themselves from the pack." McFadden is shaping up as a dicey flex play to begin the year, while Randle will be toward the back end of RB2s. Lance Dunbar will eat into both players' production in the passing game, further muddying the situation.

Travis Kelce dropped out of Monday's practice with a "slight" ankle sprain.

Kelce missed Tuesday's session. We don't usually post such minor injury situations on Rotoworld, but have seen people freaking out about Kelce on Twitter. Coach Andy Reid stated after Tuesday's practice that Kelce has a "slightly" sprained ankle, and it is not of the high variety. Reid added that Kelce would be able to play if the Chiefs had a regular season game this week.

Randall Cobb (shoulder) expects to be ready for Week 1.

"I don't plan on missing a game," Cobb said. "I'm doing everything in my power to get back before then." The Packers are notoriously cautious with injuries, but most signs point toward Cobb being ready to go in 12 days against the Bears.

Federal judge Richard Berman expects a ruling in the Tom Brady case by the "end of the week."

A decision was tentatively expected to come down on Tuesday, but that isn't happening. Berman could be giving the sides more time to reach a settlement, but it's reportedly unlikely. Thankfully the melodramatic food fight will be over before Week 1.

Browns released NT Phil Taylor.

The first-rounder the Browns got after deciding to trade down and pass on Julio Jones in 2011, Taylor never emerged as more than a run-plugging specialist. He was limited to just five games last season after undergoing a knee scope. Taylor is still a viable NFLer, so it's a bit of a surprising move. The Browns are on the hook for Taylor's $5.477 million salary. Taylor should latch on elsewhere relatively quickly.

Chiefs waived WR Junior Hemingway.

A 2012 seventh-round pick, Hemingway was never able to establish himself in Kansas City's underwhelming receiver corps. He recorded 25 catches across 31 games in three years with the Chiefs. Kansas City also waived OL Tavon Rooks, placed QB Tyler Bray on the reserve/NFI list and placed LB Justin March on injured reserve.

WWL reports the Saints are waiving Nick Toon.

We're holding it off on making it official because Toon has a high-ankle sprain. That means he's more likely to be waived/injured than waived. Waived/injured would send Toon through waivers before landing him on injured reserve. Toon caught just two preseason passes for 11 yards before going down in the second exhibition game. He never really put any heat on Brandon Coleman for No. 3 duties even though Coleman has had a middling summer.

Bears coach John Fox was "terse and non-specific" when asked about Alshon Jeffery's calf injury on Tuesday.

Jeffery hasn't practiced since August 11. Fox's Tuesday attitude is alarming on its face, but the Bears' new head coach has already made it clear he thinks he doesn't owe anyone anything when it comes to injury information. Fox views the trivial details of his team as top secret information to be protected in a bunker. It's always concerning when a player misses nearly three weeks of practice, but there's still no compelling reason to believe Jeffery won't be ready for 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.

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.

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.
