Cardinals released ILB Lorenzo Alexander.

Aug 31 - 3:10 PM

Cardinals released P Dave Zastudil.

Zastudil has been the Cards' punter since 2011, but was limited to two games by a groin injury last season. Going on 37, Zastudil has been punting since 2002.
Aug 31 - 3:09 PM

Cowboys waived WR Phil Bates, CB Robert Steeples, DT Carlif Taylor, P Tom Hornsey and LS Casey Kreiter.

Bates made one appearance for the Seahawks last season. Going on 26, the former undrafted free agent is running out of NFL chances.
Aug 31 - 2:58 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) has resumed practicing.

Sanders didn't appear to be full go on Monday, but he's fully on track for the opener. Last year's WR7 will begin the year as a mid-range WR2 as the Broncos feel out new coach Gary Kubiak's system.
Aug 31 - 2:54 PM

Lions placed CB Chris Owens on injured reserve, ending his season.

Owens saw 500 snaps as the Chiefs' slot corner last season, but was never in the mix for nickel duties in Detroit. The 28-year-old veteran should eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement.
Aug 31 - 2:47 PM

Lions activated DT Haloti Ngata (hamstring) from the active/PUP list.

Coach Jim Caldwell hedged on Ngata's Week 1 status last week, but he's now on track for the opener. Headed into his age-31 season, Ngata has been mostly durable, never missing more than two games with injury.
Aug 31 - 2:45 PM

Lions activated RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') from the active/PUP list.

It's not a moment too soon for the 29-year-old veteran, who isn't facing heat from just change-of-pace back Ameer Abdullah, but early-down prospect Zach Zenner. Provided he's in game shape, Bell will be the Lions' primary chain mover in Week 1, but he can't afford a slow start like the one he had in 2014. Abdullah is talented enough to begin stealing work from the word go.
Aug 31 - 2:37 PM

Bears No. 2 QB Jimmy Clausen has a concussion.

Clausen should be ready for Week 1, but it means he'll miss valuable reps in Thursday's preseason finale. It's also a concern after Clausen was concussed on a vicious hit late last season. Clausen is one of the league's poorer backups, but he could end up making starts if Jay Cutler's career continues its downward trajectory.
Aug 31 - 2:31 PM

Texans waived WR Alan Bonner, WR Travis Labhart, OT Bryan Witzmann, OG Cody White, OT Aaron Adams, LB Jason Ankrah, NT Chris Neild, WR Jace Davis and DL Cameron McLeod.

It's the second straight season Bonner, a 2013 sixth-rounder, couldn't even survive until final cuts. Neild is an ex-seventh rounder who can't stay healthy.
Aug 31 - 1:58 PM

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb (hamstring) has resumed practicing.

The injury-prone Webb will end up missing the entire preseason, but he's on track for the opener in 13 days.
Aug 31 - 1:50 PM

Ravens LG Kelechi Osemele (Achilles') has resumed practicing.

Osemele was unsure of his status 11 days ago, but he's now fully on track for Week 1. Osemele was one of the league's best guards last season.
Aug 31 - 1:49 PM

Browns OLB Barkevious Mingo (knee scope) has resumed practicing.

Mingo is now on track to be healthy for Week 1, but he could be scratched after missing essentially the entire offseason and summer with various ailments.
Aug 31 - 1:43 PM

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss wouldn't rule out the Patriots making a run at free agent Fred Jackson.

Reiss isn't reporting the Pats are already displaying interest, but bases his guess on coach Bill Belichick's longtime affinity for his division rival, and the team's unsettled situation at running back. Ultimately, New England's backfield is probably already too crowded to add another cook to the kitchen.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers drafted Sammie Coates as insurance for Martavis Bryant (suspended).

The Steelers have reportedly been aware of Bryant impending four-game suspension since the spring. That fact helps to explain the selection of Coates and the depth chart position of Markus Wheaton. Coates could have a limited role while Bryant is sidelined, but he is not on the redraft radar.
Aug 31 - 1:34 PM

Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is practicing on Monday.

It puts him on track to suit up for Thursday's preseason finale, though coach Mike Pettine has said it's not an end-all, be-all for his roster status. Despite his lost summer, Pryor appears to have the inside track to a 53-man spot.
