Ameer Abdullah had four carries for 16 yards in the Lions' third preseason game.

Abdullah was making his preseason debut after sitting out the first two games. He started and got the majority of early-down work before getting rested in the second quarter. Abdullah didn't do much, but had a 15-yard touchdown called back. His shoulder injury was a non-issue.

Giants CB Leon Hall left Saturday's preseason game with a concussion.

Obviously, he won't be returning. Hall had two tackles before exiting in the second quarter. If Hall's absence lingers into the regular season, it could open up work for first-round pick Eli Apple in the slot.

Andrew Luck completed 13-of-18 passes for 134 yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night.

He rushed once for two yards. The biggest takeaway from this game was the atrociousness of the Colts' offensive line, which gave up three sacks in two quarters and at least four more hits on Luck. Luck was efficient in the rare instances he had time to throw, hooking up with Donte Moncrief five times for 52 yards and T.Y. Hilton for 3-38 on five targets. Luck also found Josh Ferguson for a 16 yards on a well-designed screen. Luck's protection remains an obstacle in his quest for a full-on rebound to his elite 2014 form.

Kenneth Dixon suffered a left knee injury in Saturday's preseason game.

Dixon's knee bent awkwardly on a second quarter goal-line carry. He had to be helped off and was immediately taken to the locker room. Dixon was having a strong game before going down, rushing for 41 yards on six carries while playing with the first-team offense. More will be known when the Ravens update his status.

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-6 targets for 37 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.

With the Ravens missing multiple starters, Wallace was the clear No. 1 option. All six of his targets came from Joe Flacco in the first quarter. Wallace hasn't done much this preseason, but is a solid rebound candidate in Baltimore's vertical pass scheme. He's been Flacco's favorite receiver throughout training camp.
Aug 27 - 8:31 PM

Giants OLB Jonathan Casillas left Saturday's preseason game with a rib injury.

Casillas is headed for X-rays. He logged three tackles before exiting in the first quarter. Casillas has been a standout at training camp and is expected to start at weak side linebacker this year. It would be a big loss for the Giants.

Colts CB Darius Butler left Saturday's preseason game with a left ankle injury.

He's done for the night. Before getting hurt, Butler intercepted a pass that was dropped by Eagles wideout Nelson Agholor. Butler had his ankle wrapped on the sideline, suggesting his exit may have been precautionary. The Colts can't afford another injury to their secondary with Vontae Davis (ankle) already on the shelf.
Aug 27 - 8:14 PM

Joe Flacco completed 11-of-16 passes for 94 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.

Flacco was making his first appearance since Week 11 last year. He looked fully healthy, showing no ill-effects after taking an early sack. Flacco's night was impressive considering his supporting cast. He's a high-floor QB2.

Paxton Lynch will be the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Trevor Siemian will draw the start with Mark Sanchez slotting in as the third-string QB. The pieces of Denver's quarterback puzzle are starting to come together with Siemian the favorite to start Week 1 and Sanchez now fighting for his roster spot. Lynch has done some good things this preseason, completing 21-of-33 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns. He could put heat on Siemian with another strong showing on Saturday.
Aug 27 - 7:45 PM

Ben Watson suffered a torn Achilles' in Saturday's preseason game.

Watson went down on the first play of the night. It's a huge blow to a pass game that relies heavily on tight ends. The Ravens could end up getting nothing on the two-year, $7 million deal they gave Watson this offseason. With Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams sidelined, Baltimore is down to Crockett Gillmore.
Aug 27 - 7:25 PM

Eagles rookie Carson Wentz (ribs) is expected to play in the team's preseason finale.

He could conceivably get the whole game, because Sam Bradford isn't going to play much or at all, and Chase Daniel doesn't need the work. Wentz suffered a rib injury in the Eagles' preseason opener. He resumed throwing passes at full speed on Friday and participated in pre-game warmups Saturday evening.

49ers coach Chip Kelly continues to claim the team's quarterback competition remains open.

Blaine Gabbert has done nothing to run with the job, but Colin Kaepernick has somehow done even less. All signs have pointed to Gabbert under center for the opener for weeks now. Kap has seemed checked out of San Francisco since last season, and has seen his on-field performance deteriorate at an alarming rate. All he's really accomplished this summer is setting off constitutional debates on Twitter.

49ers waived/released WR Jerome Simpson, WR DiAndre Campbell, RB Kendall Gaskins, DL Darren Lake, K John Lunsford, LB Wynton McManis, OL Blake Muir, OL Ian Silberman and CB Cleveland Wallace.

Simpson was due $885,000 after catching five balls in six games last season. The appearances were the oft-suspended wideout's first since 2013. Now on the wrong side of 30, Simpson is at the end of the line of what's been a career full of missed opportunities.
Aug 27 - 6:26 PM

Brandon Marshall is inactive for the Jets' third preseason game.

Marshall is an 11th-year pro with 882 career catches. He doesn't need a "dress rehearsal" for Week 1. Marshall has little shot at matching last year's ridiculous 109/1,502/14 line, but remains a firm WR1 in an offense that figures to throw as much as any in football.
Aug 27 - 6:09 PM

Rams signed WR Tavon Austin to a four-year, $42 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes a whopping $30 million guaranteed, a princely sum for a 5-foot-8 gadget player the Rams have desperately wishcasted as a No. 1 receiver since trading up for him in the 2013 draft. Austin is coming off a unique season where he eclipsed both 400 yards rushing and receiving, but simply isn't worthy of this kind of deal. The Rams under Jeff Fisher have a tendency to compound mistakes instead of trying to fix them. All that being said, despite now being overpaid, Austin is a useful real-life player who has WR4 appeal in fantasy. He is a legitimate playmaker. He's just not who the Rams are paying him to be.
