Steelers LG Ramon Foster suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win, and will be sidelined a "couple weeks."

The Steelers' offensive line continues to be stunningly injury prone. Foster dealt with a pectoral strain earlier this season, but Sunday will be the first start he's missed. Guy Whimper filled in for Foster against the Bills, and will likely get the start against the Lions. Foster has graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 left guard this season, so it's not good news for Le'Veon Bell.

Le'Veon Bell started Thursday's preseason game, rushing nine times for 23 yards while catching one pass for three yards.

Bell got the start one day after being popped for DUI and marijuana possession, running the ball on three of the Steelers' first four plays. Bell also drew two targets on the opening drive, one of which was nullified by a penalty. LeGarrette Blount didn't show up until Pittsburgh's second drive, but both played into the fourth quarter. That appeared to be their "punishment." Each received 10 targets, though Blount out-gained Bell 46-26. Neither found the end zone, but there weren't any goal-line carries on a night where Pittsburgh got throttled. Despite his issues with Blount and the law, Bell is still the Steelers' clear No. 1, and worthy of a second- or third-round fantasy pick.

Jeremy Maclin caught 6-of-8 targets for 43 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Maclin moved well after being slowed by knee and hamstring issues in camp, but gave the Eagles the scare of a lifetime when he went down untouched in the first half. His right, surgically-repaired knee appeared to give out, but he walked off the field under his own power before returning to the game a short time later. Maclin's injury history makes him a dicey WR3 proposition in the Eagles' spread-the-wealth passing attack, but his WR2 upside is worth the risk.

Nick Foles completed 19-of-29 passes for 179 yards, a touchdown and interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

The Eagles' starter should be done for the preseason. Foles got off to a rocky start, missing low, wide and high on the Eagles' opening possession. He quickly settled down, however, working the middle of the field and getting the ball out extremely quick on the Eagles' numerous screens. His pick came on a botched screen, while his touchdown was a LeSean McCoy catch-and-run on a reverse screen. If Foles is indeed done for August, he finishes with more picks than he threw in all of 2013 (three), but 304 yards and two scores on 48 attempts (6.3 YPA). He's a locked-in QB1.

LeSean McCoy's (thumb) X-rays came back negative, and the injury is not considered serious.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane, Shady has avoided any fractures or torn ligaments. It's a best-case scenario after McCoy was forced from Thursday's regular-season dress rehearsal after racking up 50 yards and a score on only six touches. McCoy will be ready to rock for Week 1. Draft him as you normally would.

ESPN New York believes Stephen Hill has yet to sew up a roster spot.

Hill has only one catch through 70 preseason snaps, and been "all over the map" in practice. Hill's theoretical upside is looking less and less likely to develop, though we'd ultimately expect him to keep his roster spot.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers plan to let the league "handle any disciplinary measures" following Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount's Wednesday arrest.

In other words, they won't be suspended any time soon. The NFL's wheels of justice move slowly. As previously reported, both players are suiting up for Thursday's preseason game. Coach Mike Tomlin believed it would be a "reward" to suspend players for an exhibition game. What a ringing endorsement for the preseason.

Cowboys LB DeVonte Holloman's career is likely over due to his latest neck injury.

Holloman, a sixth-round pick in 2013, suffered a spinal contusion in practice last season and missed seven games. He returned to start the final two games at middle linebacker and was in the mix to help fill Sean Lee's shoes this season, but now this embattled Cowboys defense takes another hit to its already brutal depth. Holloman hurt his neck during Saturday night's preseason game when a teammate made contact underneath his arm.

The Tennessean says the goal-line fade to Justin Hunter has been "all but unstoppable" at camp.

"When the Titans get anywhere near the goal line, quarterback Jake Locker simply lofts a soft spiral toward the corner of the end zone," says beat man John Glennon. At 6-foot-4 with excellent ball skills and a sparkling 39.5-inch vertical, Hunter is a no-brainer target over the diminutive Kendall Wright. On his 30 career NFL catches (between preseason and regular season), he has an incredible eight touchdowns. Hunter is shaping up as a prime breakout candidate this season, especially in TD-heavy formats.

Pierre Thomas expects his pass-game role to expand this season.

"I know my role is going to change a whole lot this year," he said. "I'm going to do more pass protection and route running." On paper, it makes sense as Darren Sproles and Lance Moore, who combined for 108 catches last year, are both gone. But Thomas already caught 77 balls last season, Khiry Robinson is underrated in the pass game and Brandin Cooks can do Sprolesian things. In reality, it's hard to see Thomas' box-score production making a significant leap, leaving him as a borderline RB2/3 in PPR formats. He'll turn 30 in December and averaged a career-low 6.7 yards per reception last year.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson says Trent Richardson "needs to answer the bell" and be "accountable."

Richardson gained eight yards on his first preseason carry, and has 26 yards on his last 13. "Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability," said Grigson. "We’re all accountable here. ... He’s such a hard runner, we know how tough he is, but he’s got to produce just like all these guys do on this final 53." If this was an outward expression of disappointment from Grigson, it'd be a first from the Colts' organization, which has propped up T-Rich at every opportunity since trading for him last September. Richardson's ADP has finally begun to dip. He's going late in the fifth round of standard drafts.

Andre Johnson is "showing no signs of rust" after missing a chunk of Texans camp with a hamstring injury.

Johnson reportedly showed up "all over the field" during Wednesday's Texans-Broncos joint practice and made one "incredible" catch in the back of the end zone. "He's a big part of what we're doing here," coach Bill O'Brien said. The No. 12 overall fantasy receiver a year ago, Johnson's ADP has dropped into the late fourth round. His QBs were Matt Schaub and Case Keenum in 2013.
