Reggie Bush (calf) said he expects to play in Monday night's game against the Ravens.

Bush aggravated his calf pull while warming up in the snow at Philadelphia on Sunday. Now he gets a long week and a home date on the friendly turf of Ford Field. Players are often overly optimistic on their health, but Bush couldn't ask for a much better setup. He can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now as we wait to see how he progresses in practice later this week.

Redskins UDFA RB Rob Kelley rushed 16 times for 99 yards and lost six yards on his lone reception in Wednesday's preseason finale.

Redskins No. 4 back Mack Brown (19-149-1) also had a big night. Kelley is the headliner, though, after beating out Keith Marshall and Matt Jones injured his shoulder. A decisive, downhill runner without great speed (4.68), Kelley finishes the preseason with 38 carries for 198 yards (5.21 YPC). The undrafted rookie out of Tulane is a deep sleeper in 12- and 14-team leagues.

Citing multiple sources, Tony Romo (back) could miss closer to 8-10 weeks than the initially reported 6-10.

In other words, the Cowboys shouldn't be expecting Romo back until the more pessimistic side of initial estimates. Romo will undergo anther MRI this weekend, and "those results will dictate whether the Cowboys carry him on the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve," from which Romo could be designated for return later in the season. Romo is expected to be out through Week 6 at the soonest, and the Cowboys have a bye in Week 7. It's looking more and more like Dak Prescott is a certainty to start until midseason, at which the Cowboys could have another tough decision to make if Prescott plays well.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta says it's "never been in dispute" that Thomas Rawls (ankle) is the Seahawks' starter "when healthy."

More interestingly, Condotta says Rawls takes the first-team handoffs in Seahawks practice, ahead of Christine Michael. Although Michael has run almost exclusively with the ones in preseason games, Rawls is the favorite to lead Seattle in Week 1 carries assuming his ankle is cooperative. Another beat writer previously predicted Rawls would handle 15 carries in Week 1, and Michael 7.

Steelers claimed QB Zach Mettenberger off waivers from the Chargers.

Mettenberger struggled in limited preseason snaps with San Diego, failing to play in either of the last two games. He was reportedly shopped to Dallas before getting cut. The Steelers are desperate for an upgrade behind Ben Roethlisberger, but Mettenberger isn't more than a rehab project. He'll be the No. 3 quarterback behind Landry Jones.

Waiver claim CB K'Waun Williams failed his physical with the Bears and is a free agent.

Williams needed ankle surgery two weeks ago, and he's not yet healthy. Once he is, it's possible the Bears revisit Williams, but their search for cornerback help will move forward. Williams was expected to cover the slot.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe is "still not convinced" Tyler Gaffney will make the Patriots' 53-man roster.

We won't find out for sure until this weekend, and even after that it's possible Gaffney could be cut for a waiver claim. "I could also see a scenario where Gaffney makes the initial 53 but Pats like someone better on the waiver wire and make a midweek change," wrote Howe. Gaffney worked with the first-team offense in the regular season dress rehearsal, but his skills are somewhat redundant with LeGarrette Blount's. Howe seems to think Gaffney is the 52nd or 53rd player on the Patriots' roster.

The NFL has cleared James Harrison, Julius Peppers, and Clay Matthews of any wrongdoing as a result of the Al Jazeera report.

The three players, along with free agent DE Mike Neal, were linked to PEDs last year. Players from the MLB were also mentioned in the flimsy report, but MLB cleared them a while back. Harrison, Matthews, and Peppers completed interviews with the league last week and can carry on with their lives.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms the Browns won't part with Josh McCown unless a team is willing to give up a "high pick."

That price tag is rumored to be in the third round, although it's perhaps gotten steeper with multiple NFL teams losing quarterbacks recently. Ultimately, the Plain Dealer says the Browns are "unlikely" to part with McCown. As the Plain Dealer notes, McCown may be needed to make starts this year if Robert Griffin III gets hurt. (Griffin was sacked five times in one half of the Browns' third preseason game.) The Browns also view McCown as a valuable "mentor" to rehab project Griffin and third-round rookie Cody Kessler.

The Steelers and Antonio Brown agreed to a restructured contract, moving $4 million of his 2017 salary up to 2016.

Brown was originally set to earn $6.25 million this season, but will now make a little north of $10 million. It's still a massive discount for the Steelers, as Brown would likely be the league's highest-paid receiver if he hit the open market. Brown has two seasons left on his contract, but this likely means a mega-extension will be coming his way next offseason at 28 years old.

Saints signed OLB Paul Kruger, formerly of the Browns.

The Saints were the runners-up to sign Kruger back in 2013 when he picked the Browns. Now 30, Kruger will come in to try and help Cameron Jordan and Nick Fairley get after the quarterback after New Orleans lost Hau'oli Kikaha to a season-ending knee injury. Kruger received high marks from Pro Football Focus for his pass rush last season, even if the pressures only netted him three sacks.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports Jamaal Charles "hasn’t regained the role -- full-time featured back -- he had before last season’s torn ACL."

Teicher reports Spencer Ware is handling most of Kansas City's first-team running back reps in practice. Specifically, Teicher wrote that Ware "generally gets a lot of the starter’s snaps in practice. Charcandrick West gets some. Sometimes there are a few left for Charles, too." On Tuesday, coach Andy Reid said Tamba Hali (knee) is "a little further along than what Jamaal is right now," in their respective recoveries. At this point, it's unclear what Charles' role will be in Week 1 against the Chargers. An early-year RBBC appears likely. Due to their backfield depth, Teicher suggests the Chiefs "can afford to take the longer view with Charles."
