FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports free agent Joe McKnight has not signed with the Packers and is only working out for the team.

A deal could be forthcoming, but it's not imminent. A previous tweet from McKnight indicated he'd joined the team, and several beat reporters ran with it. Instead, the Packers may be just doing due diligence. Indeed, McKnight could be a good fit for a team in need of a kick returner and change-of-pace back with Randall Cobb nursing an injury and DuJuan Harris on injured reserve.

Dion Lewis rushed seven times for 34 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in the Patriots' second preseason game.

He was the third back in the game behind Rex Burkhead and James White. Burkhead worked as the featured back with New England's first-team offense, while Lewis played with the Jimmy Garoppolo group for the second-straight week. Lewis did show impressive burst and acceleration, and he is a more explosive option than Burkhead. Lewis has just as good a chance at this point as Mike Gillislee (hamstring) to be a Week 1 factor in the Patriots' backfield.

Deshaun Watson completed 3-of-10 passes for 102 yards and rushed four times for ten yards and a touchdown in the Texans' second preseason game.

Watson struggled as a passer, but Bruce Ellington and D'Onta Foreman spiked his yards-per-attempt average with big run-after-catch plays, and Watson rushed for a score for the second straight week. Tom Savage is more advanced as a pocket passer, but Watson's playmaking ability is going to be needed by the Texans sooner rather than later. Savage remains the favorite to start Week 1.

D'Onta Foreman rushed seven times for 17 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 66 yards in the Texans' second preseason game.

Foreman didn't do much passing-game work at the University of Texas, but he turned a reception into a big play on Saturday night, getting all the way down the Patriots' four-yard line before Deshaun Watson's rushing score. Foreman played behind Lamar Miller, Tyler Ervin, and Alfred Blue, however, and only with the backup group. He's still in the process of climbing the depth chart.

Samaje Perine rushed eight times for 45 yards and caught one pass for 29 yards in the Redskins' second preseason game.

Perine did not get any work with the first-team offense, which played the entire first half, but he came out hot after the break. Perine made a nice catch on a 29-yard grab on the first drive of the half, and he gained 22 yards on back-to-back runs to help set up a touchdown on the next series. Perine reportedly bounced back in practice this week after a poor showing in the preseason opener, and he kept that going on Saturday night. The rookie is still well behind Rob Kelley, but this performance likely helped him close the gap.

Marlon Mack carried five times for 45 yards while adding two receptions for 14 yards in Saturday’s preseason game.

It was the fourth-round pick’s first game action after missing the preseason opener with a shoulder issue. Although he played all his snaps against the Dallas reserves, Mack showcased the explosiveness he did at South Florida. Mack ripped runs of 10 and 13 yards on his first two carries of the game before adding a 23-yard jaunt in the third quarter. The Colts need a playmaker in their backfield as they had just four runs of 20 or more yards all of 2016, which was tied for last in the league. Mack is still behind 34-year old Frank Gore and journeyman Robert Turbin on the depth chart, but is a name to monitor as an end of the bench stash in deeper leagues.

Bilal Powell rushed nine times for 32 yards in the Jets' second preseason game, adding two catches for 14 yards.

Powell was the only Jet who looked like he belonged on the field against the Lions' first-team defense. His two receptions were literally the Jets' only completions of the first half. Despairing stuff. Nevertheless, it's the kind of three-down role Powell proved capable of down the stretch in 2016. With an aging-out Matt Forte sitting out the summer, Powell should be ticketed for big early workloads. It might not produce the desired fantasy numbers in what's looking like a once-in-a-century bad offense, but Powell should be a factor in both standard and PPR.

Rob Gronkowski played in the Patriots' second preseason game.

He played two series, we believe. It was Gronk's first preseason appearance since 2012. Gronkowski wasn't targeted in the passing game, but he did show up positively as a run blocker. The snaps were just confirmation that Gronkowski is all systems go following last year's injury-marred campaign.
Aug 19 - 9:44 PM

Rob Kelley rushed nine times for nine yards and caught one pass for five yards in the Redskins' second preseason game.

Along with the rest of the offense, Kelley could not get anything going against the Packers, although the offensive line did not do him any favors. On the bright side, fourth-rounder Samaje Perine did not get any run in the first half, meaning Kelley is way out in front in the running back battle. Unfortunately, Perine will likely earn a role at some point, and Kelley struggled to consistently produce even as the clear lead back late last season. There are better picks in the seventh round.
Aug 19 - 9:34 PM

Kirk Cousins completed 14-of-23 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' second preseason game.

Cousins orchestrated a nice touchdown drive in the two-minute drill to close out the half, but it came against mostly second teamers. For most of his snaps, he struggled with his accuracy and led Washington to just three first downs before the final drive. He also missed what should have been a couple big plays, although he threw two nice passes down the sideline in the second quarter. Washington's offense has not lit the world on fire in the first two preseason games, but the passing game should get things rolling before Week 1.
Aug 19 - 9:34 PM

Scott Tolzien completed 10-of-14 passes for 70 yards in Saturday’s preseason game.

Tolzien’s completion percentage was solid, but his 5.0 yards per pass attempt isn’t going to cut it. The Colts went three and out on all three of their drives against the Dallas starters and scored on just one of six drives while Tolzien was in the game. To be fair to Tolzien, he has largely worked with a skeleton crew at wide receiver this entire offseason, but the Colts’ offense has just eight first downs on nine possessions with their "first-team" offense in the game so far in the preseason. At this juncture, it’s close to a lock that Tolzien starts at minimum Week 1 of the regular season for Indianapolis. Andrew Luck’s absence obviously compromises all the Colts’ skill players for fantasy purposes.
Aug 19 - 9:32 PM

Patrick Mahomes completed 10-of-14 passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns, adding three scrambles for 29 additional yards.

Checking in after an impressive performance by Alex Smith, Mahomes had some fun against the Bengals' backups, showing off his entire skill-set. He scrambled, made some nice throws on the run and wasn't afraid to look down the field. Flushed from the pocket, he nearly had a 17-yard touchdown run, but stepped out of bounds before diving for the pylon. Smith can't afford any letups this season.
