Panthers SS Quintin Mikell (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Promoted off the practice squad just two days ago, Robert Lester will start in Mikell's absence. It's excellent news for the Giants. Being ruled out at this stage of the week suggests Mikell has a high-ankle sprain. He's week to week.

Texans waived NT Louis Nix.

Nix was the 83rd overall pick in last year's draft. He never played a down for the Texans after missing his entire rookie season with a wrist injury. The Texans then signed Vince Wilfork this offseason and drafted NT Christian Covington.

Cardinals waived RB Robert Hughes.

Hughes is an interesting cut by the Cardinals because he was constantly talked up as being "locked in" as the short-yardage back. Far from a special talent, Hughes averaged just 1.9 YPC on 13 totes this preseason after chugging along to 11 yards on seven carries last season. Andre Ellington, rookie David Johnson, and Chris Johnson will handle backfield duties for the Cardinals.

Falcons acquired LG Andy Levitre from the Titans in exchange for a 2016 sixth-round pick and 2017 conditional pick.

Good job by Titans GM Ruston Webster to find someone to take on Levitre's contract AND get something in return. Levitre was signed to a six-year, $46.8 million contract in 2013 but wasn't a fit in coach Ken Whisenhunt's offense. He was replaced at left guard by fellow veteran Byron Bell. Levitre is still just 29 and had a ton of success in Buffalo before Tennessee. Going back to a zone-blocking scheme like Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan's should help a lot. Levitre should step right into the lineup ahead of Mike Person. The rest of the Falcons' line: LT Jake Matthews, C Joe Hawley, RG Chris Chester, RT Ryan Schraeder.

49ers released DT Darnell Dockett.

This is our first surprise cut of the weekend. Dockett was signed to a two-year, $7.5 million contract that included $2 million guaranteed in April. He was supposed to help replace retired DE Justin Smith. Dockett had been operating as a sub-package pass rusher in camp and preseason, but apparently wasn't showing much coming off his 2014 torn ACL. Dockett turned 34 earlier this year.

Dolphins rookie RB Jay Ajayi suffered a cracked rib in Thursday night's preseason finale.

Ajayi can't stay off the trainer's table this summer after missing a large part of the beginning of training camp and the first two preseason games with a hamstring injury. The fifth-round rookie finished the exhibition season with 91 yards on 16 carries (5.6 YPC), displaying the running ability that had draftniks pegging him as a second-rounder. It's possible Ajayi goes to I.R.

Tyler Lockett caught 2-of-2 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale.

Playing with starter Russell Wilson on Seattle's opening series, Lockett simply outran Oakland's secondary en route to a 63-yard touchdown. The (latest) long score brings Lockett's preseason line as a receiver to 6/129/1, while he's added a 103-yard kick return touchdown and 67-yard punt score. The special teams stud has forced his way into a role on offense, and his big-play potential is very much worth one of your final roster spots in re-draft leagues.

Packers rookie QB Brett Hundley completed 16-of-23 passes for 236 yards and four touchdowns in Thursday night's preseason finale.

He added 12 yards on four scrambles. Hundley's pocket composure has been better than commonly advertised in the exhibition season. He'll wrap up the preseason with a 7:1 TD-to-INT ratio and 129.6 passer rating. Always a good athlete with a hose for an arm, Hundley is looking like a promising prospect for the Packers. Hundley will still be third on the depth chart to begin the season, behind Aaron Rodgers and top backup Scott Tolzien.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Isaiah Crowell has the edge over Terrance West for the starting running back job.

Neither player has had a particularly exciting preseason, but Crowell is the more talented runner with the higher ceiling. Both players should get carries against the Jets Week 1, and Duke Johnson (concussion) will be in the mix as well once he returns. This backfield will once again be difficult to project week to week.

Dwayne Bowe played into the third quarter of Thursday's preseason finale, catching 1-of-2 targets for eight yards.

The grab was Bowe's lone catch of the summer. Despite the fact that Bowe missed Cleveland's first two preseason games with a hamstring injury, it's extremely bizarre for a nine-year veteran — one who received $9.5 million guaranteed in March — to play into the third quarter of the final preseason game. It lends some credence to the scuttlebutt that Bowe's roster is in danger, though Browns in-house analyst Nathan Zegura has insisted that's not the case. What is the case is that Bowe isn't going to be a fantasy option catching passes from Josh McCown.

Terrelle Pryor wasn't targeted in Thursday's preseason finale, but rushed twice for nine yards.

Limited by a hamstring issue for the past month, Pryor was making his preseason debut. The Browns have insisted all summer that Pryor is a strict wideout, but both of his touches came as the quarterback on read options. Pryor did do some blocking as a wideout, and even served as the punt protector. Although Pryor has barely practiced this summer, and tonight's work came with deep reserves, he's looking like a good bet for the Browns' 53-man roster. A team with this little talent can't afford to let a blue-chip athlete like Pryor go. Pryor is currently off the re-draft radar, but that could change over the season's first few games.

Falcons SLB Brooks Reed is out six weeks after undergoing groin surgery.

A second opinion on Reed's long-troublesome groin determined he needed the operation. Reed could be a candidate for the Falcons' injured reserve-designated for return list. Kroy Biermann figures to open the season as Atlanta's "Otto" strong-side linebacker. It's going to be another long year for the Falcons' defense.
