CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler believes the Redskins "really, really want to keep" seventh-round RB Keith Marshall, but he needs to perform.

But Marshall needs to show the team something in the third preseason game. Through two exhibitions, Marshall has rushed 15 times for 25 yards and has fallen behind UDFA Rob Kelley on the depth chart. Marshall is currently the No. 4 back and could become expendable if the Redskins find someone better on the waiver wire at final cuts. It's possible they look for a veteran.

Jordan Cameron said he's not concerned about all of his dropped passes this summer.

Frankly, Cameron hasn't seemed to be too concerned about anything since arriving in Miami, aside from collecting a massive paycheck. "I've just got to catch the ball," Cameron said. "It's football. It's not my first one, it won’t be my last one. Maybe it's a funk, but i don’t think about it as much as I think everyone else does. It's not a concern for me." Cameron's 54.7 catch percentage last season was laughably bad. He's off the fantasy radar until further notice.

Free agent S Stevie Brown will work out for the Panthers on Friday.

He'll join fellow free agent S Donte Whitner on the visit. Brown was released by the Chiefs on Wednesday. He has 20 games of starting experience.

According to the Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder, the Colts "still love" undrafted rookie Josh Ferguson despite his brutal preseason.

Coach Chuck Pagano said the No. 2 running back battle is far from settled heading into the third preseason game, and coach said all three of Robert Turbin, Jordan Todman, and Ferguson will get chances to shine. Ferguson is currently listed as the No. 4 back on the depth chart, but Pagano continues to label him as a "third-down matchup nightmare." We haven't seen it.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chiefs holdout S Eric Berry will report to the team next week.

Speaking Friday morning, coach Andy Reid said he'd have no problems inserting Berry into the Week 1 lineup, even if he shows up that week. It'll be interesting to see what kind of shape Berry is in when he arrives to the facility. Once he reports, Berry will be locked into a one-year, $10.8 million deal.

Coach Sean Payton described Brandon Coleman's training camp and preseason as "pedestrian."

Coleman isn't believed to be "totally safe" in terms of making the 53-man roster. He dropped a pass in last week's preseason game and almost lost a fumble. At 6'6/225, Coleman simply doesn't stand out for any of the right reasons. He's been tumbling down the depth chart since Michael Thomas arrived.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's Larry Holder reports Coby Fleener "hasn't been reliable enough catching passes and isn't on the same page with Drew Brees."

According to Holder, it's resulted in No. 2 tight end Josh Hill seeing more work with the first-team offense this week. Fleener dropped too many balls in Indianapolis, as well, and it's possible the Saints were actually sending Fleener a message when they "accidentally" listed him with the fourth-stringers on last week's unofficial depth chart. We're not panicking, yet, but it's something to keep an eye on. Not being on the same page with Brees is the biggest concern.

Saints undrafted rookie WR Tommylee Lewis is expected to make the 53-man roster.

One source told Larry Holder of the New Orleans Time-Picayune that "there would be a mutiny" if Lewis didn't make the squad. The pint-sized -- 5'7/168 -- receiver out of Northern Illinois is expected to get some run with the first-team offense in the third preseason game against the Steelers.

Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official website reports Marvin Jones and Matthew Stafford have had "terrific chemistry" all through training camp.

Twentyman labels Jones the Lions' 1A receiver with Golden Tate the 1B. Jones has secured 5-of-6 targets this preseason for 81 yards and shredded his former Bengals teammates for some chunk gains and acrobatic grabs on the sideline last week. He continues to be a strong mid-round fantasy pick.

Rookie RB Darius Jackson rushed five times for 30 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding one reception for nine yards.

Through three preseason contests, Dallas' sixth-round pick has 120 yards on 31 carries (3.87 YPC) and two catches for 24 yards. Jackson should get one more long look in the preseason finale before the Cowboys decide whether to keep him on the 53. Jackson's chances will rise if Darren McFadden stays on reserve/NFI, though the Cowboys could wind up keeping only three backs if Lance Dunbar (knee) is truly healthy behind Zeke Elliott and Alfred Morris.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins rushed three times for 19 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

The fifth-rounder was buried deep on the depth chart, getting run behind someone named George Farmer. It's a clear indication he's on the roster bubble. Collins has taken the rock 12 times for 37 yards (3.08 YPC) thus far this preseason. He should get an extended look in the finale.
Aug 26 - 1:04 AM

C.J. Prosise rushed four times for 23 yards in his preseason debut Thursday night.

Although he didn't quite stuff the stat sheet, this was a big step forward for Prosise after an injury-plagued spring and beginning to camp. He worked as the Seahawks' first-team third-down back behind Christine Michael, and also mixed in on some second-and-long plays. Neither Michael nor Thomas Rawls is adept in the passing game, so Prosise could have a Week 1 role. Prosise should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and belongs on re-draft watch lists.
Aug 26 - 12:39 AM

Alfred Morris rushed five times for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason game, adding two catches for 11 yards.

Morris entered after Ezekiel Elliott torched the Seahawks' stout first-team defense in his preseason debut. Still only 27, Morris should have plenty left in the tank as a runner — he's rushed 21 times for 113 yards this preseason — but is a distant second behind Zeke on the depth chart. Morris is a pure handcuff, albeit one that will have serious fantasy value behind Dallas' dominant line were Elliott to go down with injury.

Cole Beasley caught 4-of-6 targets for 30 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game Thursday.

With Dez Bryant inactive, Beasley saw a little more attention than normal from Dak Prescott, who replaced Tony Romo (back/coaches' decision) after just three snaps. Beasley was leading the team in targets when he exited early in the second half. Beasley was targeted deep on one throw, but it fell incomplete. He simply isn't an option far away from the line of scrimmage. Beasley is expected to man the slot for Dallas, but it's not going to translate to big numbers.
Aug 26 - 12:22 AM

Dak Prescott completed 17-of-23 passes for 116 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding two rushes for 12 yards.

Through three exhibition contests, Prescott is 39-of-50 passing (78.0 percent) for 454 yards (9.08 YPA) and a 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio with 53 yards and two more scores on seven carries. That makes seven all-purpose touchdowns for Dak, compared to zero turnovers. The sample size remains small and Prescott has been put in consistently favorable situations by Dallas' coaching staff, but he also warrants recognition as one of the NFL's best preseason stories. He particularly excelled under pressure in Thursday night's game at Seattle, keeping the offense on the move despite the absence of Dez Bryant (concussion).
