Bucs acquired LG Logan Mankins from the Patriots in exchange for TE Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-round pick.

That's certainly a way for the Bucs to improve their guard play. Mankins, 32, is a six-time Pro Bowl selection and former All-Pro at a position where players tend to age well. He was a top-18 guard at Pro Football Focus last season, grading out as a top-four run blocker. The move is good news for Doug Martin's fantasy stock. Mankins will slide in between LT Anthony Collins and C Evan Dietrich-Smith. Tampa Bay will patch something together at right guard next to RT Demar Dotson. Bucs GM Jason Licht was in New England when Mankins was drafted in 2005.

Broncos officially announced Trevor Siemian as their starting quarterback.

#AsExpected. Despite entering the offseason as the heavy underdog to Mark Sanchez, the 2015 seventh-rounder simply outplayed the veteran throughout training camp and the preseason. Showing a good understanding of the offense and a willingness to push the ball downfield, it is not crazy to think Siemian could perform as well as Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler did for the Broncos last season. With the starting job now set, the focus turns to the battle between first-rounder Paxton Lynch and Sanchez for the No. 2 job. Sanchez did not play in the third preseason game, and it appears likely he will be cut this week.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Tony Romo (back) could resume training in as little as three weeks.

Breer reports Romo avoided any ligament damage in his back, giving him a three-to-six week timetable to resume training. He will need several more weeks to get back in football shape after he resumes training, but this timeline at least suggests Romo could return after the Week 7 bye. Preseason darling Dak Prescott will start while Romo is sidelined.

Jordan Matthews (knee) returned to practice Monday.

Matthews will likely be limited in his return, but it is a great sign for his Week 1 availability. With nobody stepping up while he was sidelined, Matthews will enter the season as the clear No. 1 receiver.

Texans QB Brock Osweiler said first-round WR Will Fuller is a "very special football player."

"Obviously, everybody knows about his speed -- they saw him all last season, they saw him at the combine -- but it’s his work ethic," Osweiler said. "That’s what really makes him special." Osweiler has looked the rookie's way early and often this preseason, and Fuller has rewarded his quarterback with eight catches for 144 yards and two touchdowns. Locked into the starting lineup, Fuller is a very interesting late-round grab.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports the Jets do not think Bryce Petty is ready to be the No. 2 quarterback.

If true, it would mean New York is all but certain to hang onto Geno Smith, although Mehta adds the team has received "soft interest" for their backup quarterback. The best scenario for the Jets would be for Petty to prove he is ready, allowing them to trade Geno and keep just three quarterbacks. As of now, it does not look like that will happen.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Carson Wentz (ribs) was still in pain over the weekend.

Wentz suffered a hairline fracture to his ribs in the preseason opener. One of the fractures has healed, but coach Doug Pederson said the other is only 60 percent recovered. The Eagles' plan was to get Wentz work in the finale Thursday night, but he confirmed he will sit out. The rookie will open the season firmly glued to the bench.

Bryan Stork failed his physical with the Redskins and has reverted back to the Patriots.

In a saga which refuses to end, Stork has now been cut, traded, retired, and now reverted in the last week. Again the owners of his rights, the Patriots will almost certainly release Stork before tomorrow's deadline. Washington will have to look elsewhere for interior line depth.

Redskins rookie RB Keith Marshall (elbow) is expected to miss at least three weeks.

Marshall suffered a nasty looking elbow injury in the third preseason game, but the team says it is just a sprain. The timetable is "at least" because CSN Washington's Chick Hernandez reports he will be "re-evaluated" after three weeks. It is certainly possible the injury-crossed back misses more time. With Matt Jones (shoulder) questionable for Week 1, undrafted rookie Rob Kelley could open the season in the starting lineup.

Browns released OLB Paul Kruger.

Kruger started the third preseason game and played extensively with the first-team defense, so this is a shocking cut. Usage contributed to Kruger recording his lowest sack total since 2010 last season, but he was expected to bounce back in new DC Ray Horton's scheme. With plenty of teams desperate for pass rushers, Kruger should not be on the street long.

A.J. Green said he "banged knees" with Jaguars CB Davon House in Sunday night's preseason game.

"I'm fine now," he added. The injury originally looked like an ankle tweak, but it sounds like Green escaped with a knee bruise. The Bengals are counting on Green as much as ever this season after losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu to free agency, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) until Week 4 at the soonest.
Aug 28 - 10:01 PM

Brandon LaFell caught his only target for eight yards Sunday night against the Jaguars.

LaFell worked as the starter in two-wide sets before A.J. Green went down with a minor injury. Rookie Tyler Boyd saw time in the slot in three-wide looks. LaFell did curiously see snaps with the second unit, but it was likely just to get him reps after he missed time with a hand injury. Looking likely to open the season as the No. 2 receiver, LaFell has some intriguing target upside.
