Speaking Sunday, Browns coach Mike Pettine refused to rule out signing free agent Ray Rice.

With Duke Johnson in the concussion protocol, the Browns are short at running back. It's the second time Pettine has passed up the opportunity to say the team isn't interested in Rice. Although Rice is now 28 and coming off a year where he didn't play, he leads a barren running back "market." Rice's addition would further muddle a backfield where the pecking order has been anything but clear.

Randall Cobb's MRI revealed only a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

Cobb admitted he feared a broken collarbone when he left holding his arm with the injury, but it's a mere sprain, or partial tear. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Cobb's injury "minor," but acknowledges there's still "no word" on whether Cobb will be ready for Week 1. It sounds like a day-to-day injury. We like Cobb's chances of being all set for Opening Day against the Bears.

Coach Gary Kubiak suggested the Broncos were expecting more year-two development from WR Cody Latimer.

Keep in mind these comments were made before Latimer's rough third preseason game where he dropped an easy TD and frustrated Peyton Manning by running the wrong route. Teammate Demaryius Thomas hinted Latimer is showing up in practice, but it's not translating to games. "You just want to see him making plays," said Kubiak. "He's a hard worker. He does the right thing. He's in the right place, but it's time for him to start making plays on the ball, coming up with big plays."

Tre Mason's right hamstring pull is "mild."

Mason will sit out Thursday's preseason finale, but it sounds like he'll be ready to rock for Week 1, which is in exactly two weeks. With Todd Gurley expected to be eased in, Mason will offer some FLEX appeal in September, though he has a rough opening matchup in the Seahawks.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Randall Cobb's shoulder injury is believed to be minor.

Per Rapsheet, Cobb is believed to have escaped with a minor sprain. It's the best possible news for the Packers, who couldn't afford even a short absence from their new No. 1 receiver. As it is, Cobb now has 14 days to get ready for Week 1, and should be ready to roll as a WR1 against the Bears. Cobb's status will be updated sometime in the next 24-48 hours.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he will discuss his quarterback decision with GM Scot McCloughan, team president Bruce Allen and owner Daniel Snyder.

Gruden added he had the final say in the quarterback decision, but if that were the case Robert Griffin III likely would not have been named the starter in February. Kirk Cousins was shaky in the third preseason game, but at this point he may offer Washington the best chance to win. Griffin may not be cleared from his concussion in time to play Week 1, so all of this may end up being a moot point.

Colin Kaepernick completed 2-of-5 passes for 13 yards and rushed three times for 53 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Kaepernick played an entire half, but the 49ers offense could not do anything in the first half. The offensive line struggled to protect Kaepernick, who was sacked twice including a safety. All of Kaepernick's rushing yards and eight of his passing yards came on the final drive of the first half. Kaepernick has completed 5-of-13 passes for 40 yards (3.07 YPA) and been sacked three times this preseason.

Duke Johnson suffered a concussion in the Browns' third preseason game Saturday night.

Johnson was seeing his first action of the preseason after sitting out the first two exhibitions with a pulled hamstring. He didn't last long, however, as Johnson took a thundering hit in the first quarter. Johnson had a real chance to earn a significant role, but has been unable to stay on the field. With so much uncertainty, the Browns' backfield is a situation to avoid before the late rounds of drafts.

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-19 passes for 145 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's third preseason game.

It was about as perfect as Tannehill and the Dolphins could have hoped for in the regular-season dress rehearsal. He and Jarvis Landry hooked up five times for 84 yards on six targets, including a long 46-yard gain over the middle where Landry chewed up plenty of YAC. Tannehill found Rishard Matthews for his lone score, hooking up on a quick pass from two yards out. After three preseason games, Tannehill is 33-of-41 (80.4 percent) for 303 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He's looking like a strong back-end QB1 with upside.

Ravens WR Steve Smith was ejected from the team's third preseason game.

Smith took rightful exception to Keenan Robinson piledriving Kamar Aiken at the end of a first-quarter catch. He and Chris Culliver got into an altercation. Both were ejected. Smith burned the Redskins' secondary for a 63-yard touchdown early in the first quarter. He finished with 95 yards on four catches and the touchdown.

ESPN's Adam Caplan expects Duke Johnson to lead the Browns' backfield in touches if he stays healthy.

This is the sense we've started to get as Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West have sleepwalked through the preseason. Both the coaching staff and local media have spent a good deal of the summer talking the third-rounder up, while he has a hold on third-down duties no matter what happens between now and Week 1. With Crowell and West working to cancel each other out, Johnson could start encroaching on their supposed early-down territory.
