Stephon Gilmore is being evaluated for a possible concussion.

Gilmore was shaken up on a collision with Steelers WR Markus Wheaton. He walked off under his own power, but was immediately taken to the locker room. Gilmore will have 15 days to get cleared for Week 1 if he gets placed in the concussion protocol.

Redskins signed LT Trent Williams to a five-year, $66 million extension.

The deal includes $43.25 million guaranteed. Williams will average $13.2 million annually, placing him ahead of Tyron Smith as the highest-paid left tackle in the league. It's the second big-money extension given out by GM Scot McCloughan after locking up OLB Ryan Kerrigan. The Redskins should have two offensive-line cornerstones to build around with Williams and No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff. A three-time Pro Bowler, Williams is signed through 2020, his age-32 season.

Titans rookie RB David Cobb (calf) is week to week.

Cobb should miss the rest of the preseason. He isn’t a lock to be ready for Week 1. Cobb is merely a late-round flier.

ESPN New York confirms the Jets coaching staff has downgraded Jeremy Kerley.

Reporter Rich Cimini suggests Kerley may have been "coasting" after signing a new contract, with a minor Achilles injury costing him part of OTAs. With Devin Smith sidelined, Kerley has been playing behind Chris Owusu and Quincy Enunwa in three-wide sets. Kerley’s guaranteed base-salary should secure his roster spot, but 2015 is looking like his last year with the Jets.

Khiry Robinson missed practice this week with an undisclosed injury.

The Saints don’t expect the injury to affect his Week 1 status. Robinson isn’t more than an early-down backup to Mark Ingram, though there’s rumblings C.J. Spiller (knee scope) might not be ready for the opener. Robinson should go undrafted in 12-team leagues.

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen views rookie Josh Robinson as the No. 3 running back.

Dan Herron is Frank Gore’s backup, but Robinson has shown enough this preseason to move ahead of Vick Ballard. The Colts would figure to use a committee if Gore went down, with Robinson a candidate for short-yardage/inside work. Robinson will make Ballard or Zurlon Tipton expendable.

Dorial Green-Beckham didn’t play any snaps in the Titans third preseason game.

Green-Beckham was active after missing time with an ankle injury, but didn’t see the field. Coach Ken Whisenhunt views Green-Beckham as a work in progress, limiting his chances of making an early-season impact. The Titans slowplayed Bishop Sankey for 29-year-old Shonn Greene last year, and appear to be doing the same with DGB. Harry Douglas and a broken-down Hakeem Nicks are expected to open the year opposite Kendall Wright.

Jaguars RG Brandon Linder (toe) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Linder is day to day, and reportedly could have played through his toe issue if it were the regular season. It's good news for Blake Bortles. Linder is one of the top pass-blocking guards in the league.

The Bengals' official website said the "growing sense" is WLB Vontaze Burfict (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

The Bengals have been hopeful Burfict would be ready Week 1. If he starts on the PUP, Burfict would not be eligible to play until after the team's Week 7 bye. Veteran A.J. Hawk has started the first two preseason games at weakside linebacker.

Saints QB Luke McCown will get an extended look in the Saints' third preseason game.

Drew Brees is only expected to play "a handful" of snaps before ceding the reigns to McCown. The news suggests McCown is well ahead of Ryan Griffin for the team's No. 2 job. With rookie Garrett Grayson almost guaranteed a roster spot, Griffin's roster spot is in danger.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said DT Dominique Easley has "had a real good training camp."

"He's improved his technique, his reactions, recognition," Belichick said. "Just being able to get out on the field and take those reps in practice and improve has helped him get better." Easley was limited to less than 25 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps last year before being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. With Vince Wilfork now in Houston, Easley needs to have a healthy and productive season.

Giants will bring in free agent S Stevie Brown for a workout.

This was widely expected after the Texans cut Brown on Friday. Brown started eight games for the Giants last year, and New York has a desperate need at safety. He should be signed early next week.

NFL Network's Albert Breer said the Redskins have yet to make a decision on their Week 1 starter.

This negates a report from ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini, who said Kirk Cousins had been tabbed for Week 1. Russini spent several years covering the Redskins, so she is aa plugged in with the team as any national reporter. Robert Griffin III (concussion) may not be cleared to play by Week 1, which would make this all a moot point. The bigger point to take away from the last week is the Redskins' organization is about as dysfunctional as they come.

Saints coach Sean Payton said WR Willie Snead has played his way into the wide receiver competition.

"I think he's done well," Payton said. ""He's right there in the thick of it, competing for playing time, competing for a roster spot." Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston and Brandon Coleman should occupy the top three spots on the depth chart, but it is wide open behind them. Snead needs to beat out at least one of Josh Morgan, Joe Morgan or Nick Toon to land a roster spot.

ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson says Trent Richardson is on the roster bubble.

Despite getting $600,000 guaranteed in the two-year deal he signed in March, Richardson appears to be in real danger of losing his job to undrafted rookie Michael Dyer. Richardson has just 23 yards on 10 preseason carries.
