Colts RB Vick Ballard is dealing with another hamstring injury.

Ballard suffered the injury on Thursday. It's "different" than the hamstring issue he dealt with earlier in camp. At this point, the injury-prone back is likely headed to injured reserve, and will eventually be released with a settlement.

Colts DE Arthur Jones was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot following Saturday's preseason game.

It's not good news for a player who was slowed by ankle issues for the majority of 2014. Jones has yet to come close to earning the $33 million contract he signed last March.

Ladarius Green nabbed one catch for 18 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Seahawks.

Green hasn't had quite the preseason fantasy owners were hoping for. In three games, he's hauled in just two passes for 27 yards. The 25-year-old will get a chance to start with Antonio Gates sidelined for the first four weeks but is nothing more than a late-round flyer.

Quinton Patton caught one pass for eight yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Patton operated as the 49ers' third receiver, but that did not get him many snaps with the first-team offense. San Francisco ran a lot of two-wide formations with FB Bruce Miller or an extra tight end on the field. With an uncertain workload on an offense poised to struggle, Patton is well off the redraft radar.

Eagles RT Lane Johnson believes he suffered a sprained MCL in Saturday's preseason game, but fully expects to be ready for Week 1.

Coach Chip Kelly claimed Johnson could have continued playing Saturday, but that's a little hard to believe. Either way, neither Kelly nor Johnson seem concerned. The right tackle has 14 days to heal up.

Montee Ball rushed four times for 11 yards and caught one pass for 20 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Ball played behind Juwan Thompson, who appears to have jumped him for the third spot on the depth chart. Already well behind Ronnie Hillman for the backup job, Ball has zero fantasy value heading into the season. He is not guaranteed to make the final roster.

Owen Daniels caught one pass for three yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Daniels started and played ahead of Virgil Green, but he did not make an offensive impact. He now has five receptions for 28 yards this preseason. Daniels struggled to find weekly relevance with 78 targets last year, and it is not a given he gets that many opportunities this season. He is a TE2 at best.

Branden Oliver rushed five times for 14 yards and scored the Chargers’ only touchdown in Saturday’s preseason loss to the Seahawks.

Oliver broke a number of tackles on his way to a highlight reel touchdown in the third quarter. It was his only catch of the night. Melvin Gordon out-touched Oliver 18 to six and seems to be locked in as the Bolts’ early-down back. Oliver did an admirable job filling in for Ryan Mathews last year and should still get a few carries per game.

Ronnie Hillman gained 35 yards on five carries in the Broncos' third preseason game.

He added two catches for three yards. Hillman has established himself as the clear No. 2 in Denver, though he served in just a change-of-pace role with the first-team offense. Hillman will not steal enough carries from C.J. Anderson to have standalone value, but he will be a hot commodity if Anderson goes down. Hillman now has 155 yards on 21 carries (7.38 YPC) this preseason.
Aug 30 - 12:10 AM

Keenan Allen caught two passes for 28 yards in Saturday’s preseason loss to the Seahawks.

That gives him five receptions for 65 yards this preseason. Allen fell victim to the dreaded sophomore slump last season, logging just 783 yards and four touchdowns. Philip Rivers recently said Allen is having his best camp, which should give fantasy owners reason for optimism as the 23-year-old enters his third campaign with the Chargers.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason's right hamstring pull is "mild."

Mason will sit out Thursday's preseason finale, but it sounds like he'll be ready to rock for Week 1, which is in exactly two weeks. With Todd Gurley expected to be eased in, Mason will offer some FLEX appeal in September, though he has a rough opening matchup in the Seahawks.
Aug 30 - 12:06 AM

Vernon Davis was held without a catch in the 49ers' third preseason game.

There were not many passes to go around as Colin Kaepernick attempted just five throws on the night. Davis does not have a catch this preseason. The 49ers have promised to get him more involved this season, but as perhaps the third option on an offense sure to struggle, Davis is nothing more than a TE2.
Aug 30 - 12:05 AM

Colts RB Josh Robinson rushed five times for four yards before departing Saturday's preseason game with a concussion.

To make matters worse, Robinson's head injury came on a play where he committed a soft, soft fumble. Andrew Luck put the ball right in his belly, but Robinson flat dropped it. Despite the miscue, the sixth-rounder remains the favorite for No. 3 duties behind Frank Gore and Dan Herron. He'll finish the preseason with 28 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown. Robinson is better than Zurlon Tipton.
Aug 30 - 12:02 AM

Torrey Smith caught one pass for five yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Kaepernick only attempted five passes on the game, so there were not many opportunities for Smith to make noise. The reception was actually Smith's first of the preseason. Smith will be a boom-or-bust WR4 this season.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Randall Cobb's shoulder injury is believed to be minor.

Per Rapsheet, Cobb is believed to have escaped with a minor sprain. It's the best possible news for the Packers, who couldn't afford even a short absence from their new No. 1 receiver. As it is, Cobb now has 14 days to get ready for Week 1, and should be ready to roll as a WR1 against the Bears. Cobb's status will be updated sometime in the next 24-48 hours.
