The Arizona Republic reiterates that the Cardinals "would like to get the ball to (Andre) Ellington 20 or so times a game, but want to limit his carries inside the tackles."

Ellington handled all nine first-team reps in the preseason opener, touching the ball three times while playing on third downs and in the red zone. It's clear Bruce Arians wants his explosive back on the field as much as possible, but understands that inside running is not where Ellington wins. Ideally, the Cardinals will get Ellington the ball in space via 4-5 catches per game and then give him 13-15 carries. Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer will have roles between the tackles off the bench. Cardinals radio color analyst Ron Wolfley said multiple coaches told him they want Ellington to be their Jamaal Charles.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports the Vikings are trying to trade C John Sullivan.

This explains why Sullivan was held out of the Vikings' regular season dress rehearsal. At center, the Vikings are going with Joe Berger, who has history with new OL coach Tony Sparano, and who was excellent as a 16-game starter last year. Sullivan, 31, missed all of 2015 due to multiple back surgeries. If the Vikings can't find a taker, Sullivan will likely be released.

Jordy Nelson (knee) participated in his first full practice of Packers camp on Monday.

Coming off a 2015 ACL tear and early-camp knee tendinitis, Nelson worked with the first team in 11-on-11s after focusing on individual drills in last week's practices. "He looks just like Jordy," Randall Cobb observed. "He caught a deep ball. That’s what he does. It was great to see him out there."

Seahawks released S Brandon Browner.

The Seahawks were trying to convert Browner from a press corner into a safety, and it didn't work. Browner is likely all out of gas at age 32. He has been released by the Patriots, Seahawks, and Saints over the past two offseasons.

Panthers acquired P Andy Lee and a seventh-round draft pick from the Browns in exchange for P Kasey Redfern and a fourth-round pick in 2018.

The Panthers needed a punter, and the rebuilding Browns have been stocking up on draft picks since Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta took over. Lee, 34, was acquired via trade by the old Ray Farmer regime for a 2017 seventh-round pick. The Brown-DePodesta regime gets a draft-pick upgrade and will move forward with a cheaper punter. Lee is owed a $2.83 million base salary this season.

Kendall Wright re-strained his hamstring at Monday's practice.

He's ruled out for Thursday's preseason finale. Wright has missed almost all of Titans camp with hamstring woes, and could fall to fourth or even fifth on the wide receiver depth chart to begin the year. The Titans are likely going to keep Andre Johnson and Harry Douglas behind Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe. Tre McBride has also made a case for a roster spot this August.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday that J.J. Watt (back) has a chance to be ready for Week 1 against the Bears.

It's bad news for the Bears, whose line has been depleted by injuries, and whose offense as a whole has looked nightmarish in August. "I can definitely see (Watt playing in the opener)," O'Brien said. "He's on the right track. He's made a lot of progress the past couple weeks." When Watt originally underwent back surgery in July, NFL Network reported he would be ready for Week 1.

Paxton Lynch will play the entire game in the Broncos' preseason finale.

This should place him squarely on preseason DFS crosshairs. It's also a big opportunity for Denver's first-round pick; Lynch could start sooner rather than later if he plays well Thursday, and Trevor Siemian struggles early in the year. Siemian finished his college career with a 27:24 TD-to-INT ratio.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday that John Brown is still experiencing headaches.

Arians did insist Brown is "making progress," and that Smokey has been headache free for two days. Brown's recovery has still been alarmingly slow from an early-camp concussion. The Cardinals have not yet given any indication that Brown's reoccurring headaches could keep him out of Week 1.

Chargers signed No. 3 overall pick DE Joey Bosa to a four-year, $26 million contract.

In the end, both sides blinked. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chargers agreed to give Bosa the largest up-front signing bonus in franchise history ($17 million) in exchange for offset language. Bosa now has only 13 days to get ready for Week 1 after skipping the entire offseason program. He's supposedly been working out "like a madman" on his own. Bosa could be on an early snap count, but he's an elite 21-year-old athlete. At least physically, it won't take him long to get up to speed.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says injured reserve is a possibility for RB Keith Marshall (elbow).

Marshall is only supposed to be sidelined three weeks, so it would be a drastic move. Of course, Marshall could be the player the Redskins stash to activate later. He's probably not important enough for that honor, however. Even with Matt Jones (shoulder) banged up, Marshall is completely off the re-draft radar.

Lions placed LS Jimmy Landes on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Stunningly, using a draft pick on a long snapper turned out to be a poor investment. Landes will be back in 2017, where he'll compete to snap the snaps that are longer than normal snaps.
