Patriots waived RB Jonas Gray.

It's possible Gray is being waived/injured, as he missed the preseason finale with an undisclosed injury. Either way, it brings (a little) clarity to the Pats' jumbled backfield. Brandon Bolden and James White will mind the store during LeGarrette Blount's one-game suspension, while Blount will be the No. 1 upon his Week 2 return. Gray had a nice preseason, rolling up 107 yards on 19 carries (5.6 YPC), and averaged 4.6 yards on 89 totes a year ago. It's quite possible he'll be claimed on waivers.

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reported the Eagles are interested in free agent QB Christian Ponder.

This is likely an agent-driven report. The Eagles have one of the best backups in the league in Mark Sanchez, and Ponder could not beat out former UDFA Matt McGloin in Oakland. Ponder will likely land somewhere, but it would be surprising if it were Philadelphia.
Sep 5 - 1:12 PM

Bengals placed OLB Marquis Flowers on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

A 2014 undrafted free agent, Flowers ended up appearing in all 16 games as a rookie, making one start. He'll be back to compete for one of the Bengals' final roster spots in 2016.
Sep 5 - 1:12 PM

Lions waived RB George Winn.

Winn got a little run with Joique Bell out during the preseason, carrying the rock 17 times for 69 yards. He had little chance of beating out SPARQ legend Zach Zenner for the No. 4 spot behind Bell, Ameer Abdullah and passing-down back Theo Riddick.
Sep 5 - 1:09 PM

Lions waived DE Larry Webster, DE Jerel Worthy, DL Kerry Hyder, S Brian Suite and S Isaiah Johnson.

A 2014 fourth-rounder, Webster was talked up in the offseason, but didn't show any improvement once the Lions put the pads on in August. The leap from FCS Bloomsburg proved too big to make. Webster will presumably be sheltered on the practice squad, but he's never going to make an impact in Detroit.
Sep 5 - 1:06 PM

Titans released G/T Byron Stingily.

Stingily has been with the Titans since 2011, but never progressed past deep reserve status. He could be brought back if/when the Titans need a lineman.
Sep 5 - 12:58 PM

Patriots released CB Robert McClain.

McClain started at slot corner in the first preseason game but lost his job to Tarell Brown. McClain struggled in Atlanta last season, but has put some good things on tape in his career. He should get another shot.
Sep 5 - 12:58 PM

Lions released TE Joseph Fauria.

Fauria collected seven touchdowns as a rookie but disappeared during his sophomore campaign in 2014 (six catches for 74 yards). His roster spot was in jeopardy as soon as the Lions traded for Tim Wright at the end of August. Fauria caught three passes for 24 yards during the preseason.
Sep 5 - 12:51 PM

Eagles waived CB Jaylen Watkins.

The Eagles were trying to trade the 2014 fourth-rounder out of Florida but could not find any takers. Watkins struggled as a slot corner this preseason, but his draft pedigree will earn him another shot.
Sep 5 - 12:50 PM

Giants waived/injured WR Corey Washington.

Initial reports had Washington as merely waived. He missed the preseason finale with a shoulder injury. He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers. Washington stuck with the Giants in 2014 after turning in a mammoth preseason, but couldn't match the feat this summer, catching just three passes for 25 yards in three games. Washington still has some upside, but there's no real reason to keep him around in Dynasty leagues.
Sep 5 - 12:48 PM

Lions waived QB Kellen Moore.

Moore has been with the Lions since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He had a solid summer, but was never going to overcome his physical limitations. Moore is undersized, and lacks arm strength. Dan Orlovsky is Matthew Stafford's backup.
Sep 5 - 12:44 PM

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported "there's a growing sense" Geno Smith could return sooner than expected.

That sense grew stronger after the Jets cut Matt Flynn and Josh Johnson on Saturday, leaving just rookie Bryce Petty behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Smith is unlikely to return to a starting job, but he could be fit enough for backup duty in the first month of the season.
Sep 5 - 12:44 PM

Cowboys waived QB Dustin Vaughan.

A second-year UDFA out of West Texas A&M, Vaughan looked sharp in the 2014 preseason and like a potential long-term backup. He disappointed this August, however, and was outplayed by undrafted rookie Jameill Showers.
Sep 5 - 12:44 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reported RB Montee Ball is not among the Broncos' final cuts.

Ball's roster spot seemed all but gone after a disastrous showing in the fourth preseason game, but Denver will keep the former second-round pick around for at least another couple days. Ball could still be cut once waiver claims begin this afternoon. The Broncos may also be holding out hope they can get something back for Ball on the trade market.
Sep 5 - 12:40 PM

Lions released WR Greg Salas.

Salas was productive this preseason with 138 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions, but a knee injury suffered in the final preseason game likely sealed his fate. This move could be good news for sophomore WR T.J. Jones.
