Panthers waived/injured RB Tyler Gaffney (knee).

He'll have surgery shortly. The sixth-round pick from Stanford would've been a solid bet to make Carolina's 53-man roster behind Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams, but will now "redshirt" his rookie season. Despite impressive Combine measurables and college production, Gaffney's game tape underwhelmed, and he'll be 24 next season. He has little Dynasty value.

Coach Mike Mularkey promised Wednesday that the Titans will "find ways" to get Derrick Henry on the field this season.

Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.

Jeremy Langford (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Langford appears to be questionable at best for the Bears' regular season dress rehearsal, but this is a step in the right direction after his foot was stepped on in Chicago's second preseason game, and Langford spent the next day in a walking boot. All signs still point to this being a minor "injury".

John Brown missed Cardinals practice with a headache on Wednesday.

We usually wait three days to blurb players with seemingly day-to-day injuries, but this is especially concerning after Brown missed three weeks of training camp with a concussion. He was cleared to practice earlier this week. Brown will likely be placed back into the NFL's concussion protocol. We're not quite worried that he'll miss Week 1, but the situation is increasingly troubling.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Thomas Rawls (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game, but did say Rawls "will play in the season opener."

It's pretty much as expected and what has been reported the past few days. But it's good to hear it straight from the coach's mouth, even if that coach sees things through rose-colored glasses. Rawls resumed practicing without limitations three days ago. He needs to start the season strong to hold off a back-from-the-dead Christine Michael, who has looked impressive this preseason.

Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday after missing the previous nine days.

Gronkowski "pulled up lame" on August 15, and that's all the media was able to glean from the "injury," though NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the issue, whatever it was, was minor. The Patriots have no reason to push Gronk through summer practices. He'll be fine for the Week 1 opener.

Redskins acquired C Bryan Stork from the Patriots in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Leaking to the media their intentions to cut Stork early Wednesday, the Patriots were able to finagle something that's slightly more than nothing out of Washington. Now the Redskins are on the hook for Stork's contract, as well. Stork will compete with ineffective incumbent C Kory Lichtensteiger to start in D.C.

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports the Chargers recently offered holdout No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa "their best offer," but Bosa rejected it and talks "are nowhere."

This is past being ridiculous, but it's only getting worse. There was a report earlier this week that the Chargers were willing to give Bosa $10 million of his $17 million signing bonus up front, but that's still not good enough for Bosa's camp. This looks like it could seriously linger into the regular season, and the Chargers have pulled their most recent offer. They also released a public statement, making this a PR war now. In the statement, the team said it'll have to now adjust any further offers because Bosa isn't going to be able to play all 16 regular-season games due to all the missed time. This is getting ugly.

Packers C Corey Linsley tore his hamstring twice this offseason, once in April and a second time in July, and is expected to open the season on reserve/PUP.

Linsley suffered the first tear while working out on his own after the Packers' first set of OTAs. He thought the injury had healed and began working out again in July, only to tear it again. Linsley is currently on active/PUP, but figures to open the year there and miss the first six weeks of the season. The 2014 fifth-rounder has started 33 games through two seasons and received really strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run and pass blocking. J.C. Tretter will take over.

The Chicago Tribune reports RG Kyle Long has missed the Bears' last three practices with a "labrum issue" in his shoulder.

One source the Tribune spoke to was "not optimistic about the situation," while another source (presumably Long's agent) "was confident Long would return for Week 1. The Bears already lost starting C Hroniss Grasu to a year-ending ACL tear. Coach John Fox was predictably vague when asked about Long's timetable for return. "It doesn't really matter what I think," Fox said. "There are medical people involved and when he's cleared, he'll play."

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicts third-year WR Jared Abbrederis will be Green Bay's "breakout" player this season.

Abbrederis is listed as Randall Cobb's direct backup on the Packers' latest unofficial depth chart, suggesting he's no deeper than the No. 4 receiver. According to Demovsky, Abbrederis has enjoyed a "strong showing" at training camp and "continues to move up the depth chart." With Jeff Janis' abysmal camp and broken hand, Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams for No. 3 duties. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who can play both inside and outside.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman expects the Eagles to "feature" Darren Sproles in the passing game this season.

According to Berman, new OC Frank Reich said that every week during meetings, the coaching staff would ask, "How can we get this guy the football?" regarding Sproles. The 33-year-old caught 55 passes last season, but could jump back up into the 65-75 range similar to his New Orleans days. Ryan Mathews isn't going to play on third downs, leaving all of that work to Sproles. Reich was the Chargers' OC last season when Danny Woodhead caught 80 balls.
