Fred Jackson had five carries for 48 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo's third preseason game.

Jackson was making his preseason debut after missing two weeks with a hamstring injury. He started with all four of Buffalo's running backs sidelined, but played only the first quarter. Jackson's biggest play was a 41-yard carry to open the game. Jackson is a good bet to open the season as LeSean McCoy's backup.

Redskins signed LT Trent Williams to a five-year, $66 million extension.

The deal includes $43.25 million guaranteed. Williams will average $13.2 million annually, placing him ahead of Tyron Smith as the highest-paid left tackle in the league. It's the second big-money extension given out by GM Scot McCloughan after locking up OLB Ryan Kerrigan. The Redskins should have two offensive-line cornerstones to build around with Williams and No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff. A three-time Pro Bowler, Williams is signed through 2020, his age-32 season.

Titans rookie RB David Cobb (calf) is week to week.

Cobb should miss the rest of the preseason. He isn’t a lock to be ready for Week 1. Cobb is merely a late-round flier.

ESPN New York confirms the Jets coaching staff has downgraded Jeremy Kerley.

Reporter Rich Cimini suggests Kerley may have been "coasting" after signing a new contract, with a minor Achilles injury costing him part of OTAs. With Devin Smith sidelined, Kerley has been playing behind Chris Owusu and Quincy Enunwa in three-wide sets. Kerley’s guaranteed base-salary should secure his roster spot, but 2015 is looking like his last year with the Jets.

Khiry Robinson missed practice this week with an undisclosed injury.

The Saints don’t expect the injury to affect his Week 1 status. Robinson isn’t more than an early-down backup to Mark Ingram, though there’s rumblings C.J. Spiller (knee scope) might not be ready for the opener. Robinson should go undrafted in 12-team leagues.

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen views rookie Josh Robinson as the No. 3 running back.

Dan Herron is Frank Gore’s backup, but Robinson has shown enough this preseason to move ahead of Vick Ballard. The Colts would figure to use a committee if Gore went down, with Robinson a candidate for short-yardage/inside work. Robinson will make Ballard or Zurlon Tipton expendable.

Dorial Green-Beckham didn’t play any snaps in the Titans third preseason game.

Green-Beckham was active after missing time with an ankle injury, but didn’t see the field. Coach Ken Whisenhunt views Green-Beckham as a work in progress, limiting his chances of making an early-season impact. The Titans slowplayed Bishop Sankey for 29-year-old Shonn Greene last year, and appear to be doing the same with DGB. Harry Douglas and a broken-down Hakeem Nicks are expected to open the year opposite Kendall Wright.

Jaguars RG Brandon Linder (toe) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Linder is day to day, and reportedly could have played through his toe issue if it were the regular season. It's good news for Blake Bortles. Linder is one of the top pass-blocking guards in the league.

The Bengals' official website said the "growing sense" is WLB Vontaze Burfict (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

The Bengals have been hopeful Burfict would be ready Week 1. If he starts on the PUP, Burfict would not be eligible to play until after the team's Week 7 bye. Veteran A.J. Hawk has started the first two preseason games at weakside linebacker.

Saints QB Luke McCown will get an extended look in the Saints' third preseason game.

Drew Brees is only expected to play "a handful" of snaps before ceding the reigns to McCown. The news suggests McCown is well ahead of Ryan Griffin for the team's No. 2 job. With rookie Garrett Grayson almost guaranteed a roster spot, Griffin's roster spot is in danger.
