The Colts will host free agent Hakeem Nicks on Friday.

Indy would be a great place for Nicks to rehab his career, assuming his heart is still in it. There are whispers it isn't. Still only 26 years old, Nicks would add theoretical playmaking ability on the perimeter of the Colts' offense, with T.Y. Hilton and Reggie Wayne moving around the formation. Nicks recently listed the Colts as one of his preferred destinations due to quarterback Andrew Luck. He's also drawing interest from the Panthers and Chargers.

Blake Bortles completed 8-of-13 passes for 65 yards in the Jaguars' second preseason game.

Bortles didn't commit any turnovers, but he came awfully close on several occasions. He also flat-out missed Allen Robinson on three and arguably four big-play chances, incessantly under- and over-throwing the Jaguars' top receiver when Robinson had created separation down the sidelines and over the middle. (Somehow, Robinson still came out of this looking quite good.) Bortles, on the other hand, is dealing with shot confidence. We'd bet against him starting 16 games this season.

TMZ Sports reports Raiders CB Sean Smith was arrested and charged with felony assault on Thursday.

The incident allegedly occurred over the July 4 holiday. Officials are saying Smith attacked hi sister's boyfriend, beating and stomping on the victim's head. Smith is officially being charged with "felony assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury." He could face up to seven years in prison. NFL Network reported earlier Thursday that Smith has been benched and lost his starting job to T.J. Carrie.

DeVante Parker caught 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Dolphins' second preseason game.

Parker drew four targets from Jay Cutler in only two drives. The stats don't pop on paper, but one of the duo's missed connections was a 31-yard completion called back by holding. Parker also muffed a screen on 3rd-and-forever. Frankly, Cutler looked to be playing pitch and catch with Parker like he did Alshon Jeffery in Chicago. The Dolphins have spent the entire offseason talking Parker up. They walked the walk on Thursday.

Jay Cutler completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

The numbers don't tell the whole story, as Cutler had a 31-yard completion to DeVante Parker called back by penalty. The Dolphins also got trapped into a 3rd-and-27 thanks to a pair of holding calls. Cutler came out assertive, aggressively throwing the ball down the field and locking onto Parker like he was an Alshon Jeffery clone. It was two drives in a mid-August exhibition game, but it was promising. The Dolphins will remain run heavy, but their passing attack is going to look much different under aggressive Cutler than timid Ryan Tannehill.

Seahawks signed C Justin Britt to a three-year, $27 million extension through 2020.

He's the first Seahawks offensive lineman drafted during the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era to get a second contract in Seattle. Britt spent the first two years of his career bouncing between guard and tackle before settling in at center last season. He was a bright spot along an otherwise dismal line. 2017 will be Britt's age-26 campaign.

Thomas Rawls will miss Friday's preseason game with a "minor" ankle issue.

Eddie Lacy will start in his place. Rawls has been running ahead of Lacy with the first-team offense for over a week, but this gives Lacy a big opportunity to move back out in front. Rawls has earned universally positive reviews this summer, but any ankle issue is a concern after the catastrophic injury that ended Rawls' 2015.

49ers ILB Reuben Foster is dealing with a "mild AC joint sprain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder.

The 49ers are insisting it's a "completely different" injury than Foster's rotator cuff issue, but we'll see how true that ends up being. The team re-signed ILB Shayne Skov on Thursday. Foster was just officially anointed a starter on Tuesday. He will supposedly play in the 49ers' second preseason game on Saturday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rams DT Aaron Donald is threatening to extend his holdout into the regular season.

One source tells Schefter Donald could hold out the entire season. That's extremely unlikely, but speaks to a negotiating process that's currently going nowhere. Donald is ready to play hardball. The Rams' season kicks off in 24 days.

Speaking Thursday, commissioner Roger Goodell said reinstating suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon is "not under active consideration."

"At least hasn't made it to my desk," Goodell clarified. Gordon's most recent petition for reinstatement was denied in May. He can apply again in September. 2017 would be Gordon's age-26 season. He hasn't appeared in a regular season game since Dec. 2014.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms unsigned franchise player Le'Veon Bell plans to report to the Steelers before Week 1.

Per Schefter, it "remains unclear exactly when." Bell will probably sign and report before the calendar flips to September, but he seems extremely unlikely to see any preseason action. Bell has shown a remarkable ability to hit the ground running after long layoffs. He's a no-brainer top-two pick in every format of fantasy.

Jamison Crowder (hamstring) has returned to full practice.

The Washington Post's Mike Jones expects Crowder to be available for the second preseason game on Saturday. A real threat for 100 catches, Crowder is a great pick at the end of the sixth round.
