The 49ers expect Mario Manningham (ACL, MCL surgery/PUP) to be ready "shortly" after Week 6.

They'll paper over split end with some combination of Marlon Moore, Jon Baldwin, and perhaps Quinton Patton until then. Manningham won't return as an every-down receiver, but the Niners are optimistic he'll contribute as a rotational package player. He could help as a situational deep threat by midseason.

Falcons signed SS Dashon Goldson, formerly of the Redskins.

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.

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.

Coming off the bench behind Case Keenum, Jared Goff completed 4-of-12 passes for 45 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos before leaving "shaken up."

If you're scoring at home, the No. 1 overall pick of the draft has now gotten "shaken up" in 2-of-3 preseason games. Goff is a featherweight who has looked like one thus far through exhibition action. It's clear now why the Rams seem madly intent on starting Keenum Week 1. Goff simply isn't up to the challenge mentally or physically yet. He's completed 16-of-33 passes (48.4 percent) for 165 yards (5.00 YPA), one touchdown and a pick. He's also lost a fumble and taken four sacks, showing very poor awareness. Goff is going to make starts this season, but it could be later in the year than we expected.

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.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Saturday night he believes Kenneth Dixon's knee injury is "not overly serious."

The Ravens are sending Dixon for a Sunday MRI to be sure. Before going down, Dixon looked terrific with 41 yards on six carries, and afterward a Ravens beat writer said Dixon has looked like one of Baltimore's top runners in camp. Dixon appeared to have received a depth chart promotion, running with the first-team offense. He should be considered questionable for Week 1.

Colts UDFA RB Josh Robinson managed four yards on five carries but caught 3-of-4 targets for 28 yards in the third preseason game.

Ferguson has 18 preseason carries for 13 yards. He did show burst when the Colts finally got him into space Saturday night, breaking off a 16-yard gain on a screen pass. Ferguson struggled in blitz pickup again, however, and is probably not going to open the season as Indianapolis' No. 2 back.

Colts LG Jack Mewhort is believed to have suffered a torn ACL in Saturday night's preseason game.

It's an enormous loss for Indianapolis. A top-ten guard last season per Pro Football Focus' grades, Mewhort is one of the Colts' most experienced and best linemen as the anchor between LT Anthony Castonzo and rookie C Ryan Kelly. The Colts are also dangerously thin on the line. Offensive line play remains the biggest obstacle for Indianapolis' skill-position players in fantasy.

Donte Moncrief caught 6-of-7 targets for 58 yards in the Colts' third preseason game.

His lone missed target came on a miscommunication in the end zone with Scott Tolzien. Crief was on point with Andrew Luck, catching five balls for 52 yards in the first half alone. Crief's best catch came on a deep ball from Luck, gaining 26 yards. Moncrief is primed for third-year liftoff in Indy.

Latavius Murray rushed twice for zero yards and caught two passes for 19 yards Saturday against the Titans.

With the Raiders looking to get both DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard work with the first-team offense, Murray spent much of the first half on the bench. He did return for the two-minute drill, suggesting the Raiders still expect him to be the lead back. It is concerning he lost red-zone work to both Jamize Olawale and Washington, who caught a six-yard touchdown. Murray should enter the season as the starter, but he could be on a short leash.
