The Miami Herald believes it's "clear" Lamar Miller has fallen behind Knowshon Moreno for lead-back duties.

Reporter Armando Salguero — whose gut is usually right — came to the conclusion after listening to OC Bill Lazor's Monday presser. "(I) feel very good about (Miller's) ability to be productive," Lazor said. "But if you're talking about the preseason games, his production needs to improve." Lazor also hinted he wants Miller to be more "decisive." We're unlikely to get a true idea of how the Dolphins' backfield will shake out before Sunday's opener against the Patriots, but it's obvious a committee is in order. It's just a matter of who is the lead dog.

The Miami Herald believes it's "clear" Knowshon Moreno is the Dolphins' lead back over Lamar Miller.

Reporter Armando Salguero believes it's true "even if Miller is the player being introduced with the starters." Salguero came to the conclusion after parsing OC Bill Lazor's Monday presser. "(I) feel very good about (Miller's) ability to be productive," Lazor said. "But if you're talking about the preseason games, his production needs to improve." We might not get a definitive answer until Sunday's opener against the Patriots, but all signs point toward a committee. It's just a matter of who is the lead back, and who's the COP.

Profootballtalk reports suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon is still considering a lawsuit.

Per PFT, the decision will come "in the next day or two." Any lawsuit would reportedly include a request to "block the suspension pending the outcome of the case." A source previously told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Gordon would have "no shot" at having his ban overturned in court. He's still extremely unlikely to take the field in 2014. He's a wasted roster spot in re-draft leagues.

Jaguars second-round WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) remained limited in Monday's practice, but said he'll "definitely" be ready for Sunday's opener against the Eagles.

Specifically, Robinson said he'd be ready for a "role" against Philly. That means his snaps will be limited after missing the entire preseason, but Robinson should get up to speed in a hurry. For now, he's the Jags' No. 4 receiver, but he should eventually pass UDFA Allen Hurns.

Titans waived K Travis Coons.

An undrafted rookie out of Washington, Coons was cut loose to make room for veteran Ryan Succop. With the state of the kicker position unsettled across the NFL, Coons could get another shot this season.
Sep 1 - 2:24 PM

Titans signed K Ryan Succop, formerly of the Chiefs, to a one-year contract.

Succop was released by the Chiefs on Saturday in a cost-cutting measure, though he was just 22-of-28 (78.6 percent) on field-goal attempts last season. 80 percent is considered the "acceptable" threshold. For his career, Succop is an 81-percent kicker. He'll be a lower-tier fantasy option for the Titans' unpredictable offense.
Sep 1 - 2:20 PM

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is expected to be ready for Sunday's opener against the Bills.

Mills was held out for the entire preseason as he completed his recovery from foot surgery, but resumed practicing on August 20. "If I had to (play), I would have," Mills said of August. "I'm very ready." A 2013 fifth-rounder, Mills was among the league's poorer right tackles as a rookie.

Texans signed S Danieal Manning.

Now 32, Manning tried to make the Bengals this summer, but was let go at final cuts. He returns to Houston, where he started the first six games last season before breaking his leg. He should be the first man up behind D.J. Swearinger and Kendrick Lewis, and perhaps even push for Lewis' starting gig at free safety.

Chargers signed DL Ricardo Mathews.

Mathews spent the past four seasons in Indianapolis, but was among the Texans' final cuts over the weekend. He provides depth behind Sean Lissemore along the Bolts' thin middle of the line.
Sep 1 - 1:11 PM

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor (calf) will not play in Sunday's Week 1 game against the Eagles.

Harbor missed the entire month of August with his severe calf pull. He managed to keep his roster spot because of the sheer lack of depth in the Jags' tight end room. Wavier pickup Mickey Shuler will back up Marcedes Lewis Sunday.
Sep 1 - 12:40 PM

Free agent WR Stephen Hill is working out for the Panthers Monday.

Hill went unclaimed on waivers after getting cut by the Jets Saturday. It was a surprise, considering he's 23 years old and goes 6'4/214 with sub-4.4 speed. Hill skill-set would definitely fit in Carolina, as they have no viable deep threats outside of Kelvin Benjamin.
Sep 1 - 12:26 PM

Sammy Watkins (ribs) is practicing Monday.

Watkins injured his ribs twice during the preseason, but there was no serious damage done. The bigger concern for the No. 4 overall pick is a run-heavy offense and the inept play of E.J. Manuel. Watkins will be a shaky WR3 candidate in Week 1 at best.
Sep 1 - 12:23 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) admitted he won't play every snap in Sunday's Week 1 game against the Dolphins.

Gronk is still less than eight months removed from surgery to repair his ACL and MCL, so just being active on Sunday is a major accomplishment. "Definitely not [playing] every single snap. But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good," he said. Note that Gronk only played on 59.4 percent of the snaps in his first three games off an elbow injury last year. He still produced 19 catches, 284 yards and one touchdown during that span.
Sep 1 - 12:10 PM

Greg Olsen (personal) returned to the Panthers Monday.

Olsen left the team last week to be with his son, who is recovering from a third surgery on his heart. Olsen will be fine to use as a low-end TE1 against the Bucs Sunday. In two games against them last year, he caught eight passes for 106 yards with a touchdown.
Sep 1 - 12:06 PM

Wes Welker (concussion) is participating in Monday's practice.

Welker was spotted in his helmet and doing non-contact individual drills with his teammates. As long as he emerges from this workout without symptoms and passes a few more tests, he'll be cleared for full-contact practice by Wednesday or Thursday. That would put Welker on track to play in Sunday night's showdown against the Colts despite suffering three concussions in his last 10 games.
