Teddy Bridgewater completed 12-of-16 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' third preseason game.

He added a 22-yard scramble. Bridgewater was sharp despite missing recent practices due to arm fatigue, connecting with Stefon Diggs for 5-72 receiving on five targets and throwing a TD pass to Kyle Rudolph. The low-volume nature of Minnesota's passing offense is Teddy's biggest hurdle in the way of fantasy football impact. That could change if Adrian Peterson went down.

Philip Rivers completed 5-of-9 passes for 54 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's third preseason game.

The Bolts just wanted to get Rivers a few reps without getting him injured. Mission accomplished. Rivers attempted only 12 passes this summer, but it's not a concern for someone with 5,339 career throws. Rivers has his best supporting cast in a few years, and is a firm WR1.

49ers released RT Erik Pears.

They also cut tight end Rory "Busta" Anderson. Pears started all 16 games for the Niners last season but couldn't hold off Trent Brown in camp. The 34-year-old should land a backup gig in relatively short order despite his struggles last year.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver was carted off the field in Sunday's preseason game with a right foot/ankle injury.

We're not doctors, but you could practically see Oliver's Achilles' tendon pop in slow motion. The Chargers have since confirmed. Oliver will be done for the season. Oliver is a jack-of-all-trades backup behind Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon. It leaves the Bolts with little room for error if Woodhead gets hurt or Gordon doesn't take a step forward.

Lions acquired OG Brandon Thomas from the 49ers in exchange for WR Jeremy Kerley.

One of the 49ers' ACL rehab picks, Thomas missed his entire rookie year before playing 106 competent snaps last season. He was no longer needed in San Fran with an un-retired Anthony Davis shifting to guard. Thomas will provide depth behind the questionable duo of LG Laken Tomlinson and RG Larry Warford.

49ers acquired WR Jeremy Kerley from the Lions in exchange for OG Brandon Thomas.

Kerley, whose career has been in gradual, consistent decline, will provide some depth in the slot and feature on special teams. He'll likely crack the 53-man roster considering how little talent GM Trent Baalke has assembled.

Bills RB Jonathan Williams (ribs) will not play in the team's preseason finale.

NFL Network previously reported Williams was "fine," but he's not fine enough to practice or play in his final exhibition opportunity. When the season starts, Williams will be behind Shady McCoy, Reggie Bush, and Mike Gillislee.

Bucs released/waived S Major Wright, DT Travis Britz, CB Daniel Davie, WR Andre Davis, OT Taylor Fallin, LB Jeremiah George, DE Martin Ifedi, RB Storm Johnson, DT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, S Kimario McFadden, P Jacob Schum and TE Tevin Westbrook.

A favorite of former coach Lovie Smith, Wright was re-upped with an incentive-laden contract in March, but ended up not even making it to final cuts. Still only 28, it's possible Wright is brought back later at a cheaper price. Schum's removal means Bryan Anger of Russell Wilson fame has won punting duties.
Aug 28 - 1:38 PM

Colts waived RB Chase Price, WR Justin Berger, S Alden Darby, G Eric Herman, DT Ricky Lumpkin, TE Mike Miller, CB Winston Rose, DE Delvon Simmons, WR Josh Stangby, and ILB Junior Sylvestre.

There are no real surprises here. Price was a UDFA out of San Diego State.
Aug 28 - 1:33 PM

Panthers waived/released WR Stephen Hill, LB Jared Barber, WR Avius Capers, TE Braxton Deave, G Reese Dismukes, DT Ray Drew, OT David Foucault, DE Tom Lally, C Matt Masifilo, WR Miles Shuler and OT Willie Smith.

That brings the roster to 79, meaning the Panthers will have to make four more cuts before Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline. Hill failed to stand out this preseason, hauling in just two of four targets for 18 yards in three appearances. The former second-round pick will hope to latch on elsewhere, though teams could be hesitant to sign him given his off-field struggles and history of knee injuries.
Aug 28 - 1:18 PM

Colts signed RB Stevan Ridley.

It's an acknowledgment of how desperately little the Colts have behind 33-year-old starter Frank Gore. Ridley couldn't beat out Zach Zenner in Detroit, and was cut after taking the ball nine times for 27 yards (3.0 YPC) in two preseason games. We'd say he doesn't have good roster odds, but his "competition" is Bob Turbin, Jordan Todman and Josh Ferguson. There's a decent chance he'll crack Indy's dilapidated running back corps.

Giants TE Matt LaCosse needs right knee surgery and is out indefinitely.

Having a strong camp, LaCosse was expected to have a role as a blocker behind pass catchers Larry Donnell and Will Tye. LaCosse may now be placed on I.R.

Chiefs holdout S Eric Berry reported to the team's facility on Sunday.

Berry staged a lengthy holdout after failing to reach a long-term deal with the Chiefs this offseason but is ready to get back to playing football. It may take Berry a few days to get up to speed but he should be ready for the Chiefs' season opener in two weeks. The 27-year-old was a first-team All-Pro last season and also earned Comeback Player of the Year honors.
Aug 28 - 1:08 PM

Bears released FB Darrel Young.

His tenure with Chicago lasted only a few weeks. If the Bears do end up keeping a fullback (they didn't last year), it will likely be Paul Lasike, who spent most of 2015 on the team's practice squad.
Aug 28 - 1:00 PM

Steelers placed OT Jerald Hawkins (shoulder) on injured reserve.

Hawkins suffered a shoulder injury early in camp and couldn't get over it. An MRI revealed a torn labrum, which will require surgery. Hawkins was a fourth-round rookie from LSU.
