Texans waived CB Brandon Harris.

The 60th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Harris couldn't find a home as a slot corner or outside cover man in three seasons with the Texans. Still only 24 years old, Harris is a good bet to resurface elsewhere in fairly short order.

Bills signed QB Kyle Orton to a one-year contract.

Orton, 31, made one start for the Cowboys last season in an NFC East win-or-go-home tilt with the Eagles. He scattered check down after check down amongst 46 pass attempts, completing 30 for 358 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Orton was on the verge of retirement before the Bills lured him back into the league, but it's fair to wonder if he eventually becomes a better option than E.J. Manuel. For now, Orton will push Jeff Tuel for the backup job.

The Cardinals are not expected to sign free agent OLB James Harrison.

Harrison knows coach Bruce Arians from Pittsburgh and the Cardinals need linebacker help, so it's surprising the sides couldn't make this work. At age 36 now, it's conceivable that Harrison is already at the end of the line.

Cardinals released DT Isaac Sopoaga, LB Marcus Benard and RB Jalen Parmele.

Parmele has 47 career carries for 187 yards, but has not played a game since 2012. Sopoaga was signed in the aftermath of Darnell Dockett's season-ending knee injury, but lasted only nine days on the roster. Benard had 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 12 games with Arizona last season.

Eagles released LB Emmanuel Acho.

Acho was released during the Eagles' final cuts last year as well, though he rejoined the team in October. A 2012 sixth-rounder, Acho has two tackles in six career games.

Eagles LB Travis Long tore the ACL in his left knee during the team's preseason finale Thursday night.

After spending last season on the Eagles' practice squad, Long was penciled in for a 53-man roster spot this year. He will likely be stashed on injured reserve. Long tore his right ACL his senior year at Washington State.

Seahawks waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

He lost out to Tarvaris Jackson for the backup job. Despite his limitations as a passer, Pryor's unique physical traits should ensure he is not on the street for long. Pryor completed 21-of-39 passes for 281 yards (7.2 YPA), a touchdown and two interceptions this preseason. He added 97 yards and a TD on the ground.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey "ran the ball very well" in the Titans' final preseason game Thursday night.

Sankey ran for 43 yards on seven carries against the Vikings. "We’ve seen growth with Bishop," said Whisenhunt. "His vision is good. He’s seeing the holes well. His protection, he’s done a nicer job with that as he’s gone through it." Sankey should start climbing the depth chart sooner rather than later, but his upside is limited by the Titans' apparent preference to use a committee approach at running back. He is overvalued in the fifth round.

Raiders waived DE Jack Crawford.

A three-year starter at Penn State, Crawford was a fifth-round pick in 2012. He had zero sacks in 19 career games with Oakland. Following Crawford's release, only two of Oakland's six picks from the 2012 draft are still on the team.
Aug 29 - 8:27 PM

Undrafted rookie K Cody Parkey has reportedly made the Eagles' 53-man roster.

Alex Henery is now likely to be cut. Parkey was acquired from the Colts on August 20, and went 3-for-3 with two 50-plus yard field goals in the Eagles' final preseason game Thursday night. Parkey should be a solid streaming option in the Eagles' high-powered offense.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Bills are shopping G Kraig Urbik.

Despite his solid 2013 campaign, Urbik lost his right guard job to former tackle Erik Pears during camp. Urbik is set to count $3.45 million against the Bills cap, but Buffalo could save $2.9 million of that by releasing or trading him. Urbik would find plenty of suitors on the open market if cut.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen is waiting for an update on Matt Schaub's elbow injury before naming his Week 1 quarterback.

Schaub's minor elbow issue appears to have given Allen the opening he needed to name Derek Carr the starter, but the Raiders will go through a few formalities first. Carr lit up the Seahawks' 2s and 3s in Thursday night's preseason finale, and has run circles around Schaub all preseason. We expect Carr to get the call against the Jets next weekend. Schaub will be away from the team this weekend as he deals with a "personal issue."
Aug 29 - 7:26 PM

Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) is expected to return to practice Monday.

He's been sidelined since an early-August scope on his left knee. Ausberry should return to a starting role, but Mychal Rivera played okay in his absence this preseason, catching six balls for 76 yards and a touchdown. No matter who is the "starter," this is a situation to avoid in fantasy.
Aug 29 - 7:26 PM

Colts owner Jim Irsay has reached a plea deal in his impaired-driving case.

Details of the plea are unavailable. Irsay had been set for an October 30 trial. Irsay will likely be slapped with a suspended sentence and probation. It's unclear how the league plans to respond.
Aug 29 - 7:21 PM

The 49ers have restructured DE Ray McDonald's contract.

McDonald would have counted $5.34 million against the 49ers' 2014 cap, but his restructuring will decrease that number. The Niners now have more cap space for the possible extensions of Michael Crabtree, G Mike Iupati and holdout OG Alex Boone.
