The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is expected to be "limited" in Thursday's preseason game.

Pryor could end up playing only a series or two. That would be his most action of the preseason, of course, but it's not going to offer anything meaningful to his roster odds. Pryor's 53-man chances live and die with what he did in pad-less offseason practices.

Titans rookie QB Marcus Mariota is expected to start the team's fourth preseason game.

Starters rarely play in the preseason finale, but coach Ken Whisenhunt apparently feels getting his rookie signal caller a couple extra meaningless snaps is necessary for his development. Mariota being on the field means the first-team offensive line and several skill position players will likely suit up as well.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported the NFL will not seek a stay of Judge Richard Berman's decision to nullify Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

This confirms an earlier report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This means Brady will be able to play while the NFL appeals the ruling. With the appeal process likely to take several months, Brady should get in a full season regardless of the appeal decision.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported several owners did not want the NFL to appeal the Deflategate decision.

Cole reports several owners want to see this saga "end once and for all." Goodell almost had to appeal the decision which blasted the league's handling of the Deflategate situation, but it is yet another decision which could strain his relationship with the owners. Cole reports the NFLPA and the owners agree the NFL needs to overhaul the disciplinary process.

In a statement, Roger Goodell confirmed the NFL will appeal Judge Richard Berman's decision to nullify Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport does not expect the NFL to seek an injunction which would keep Brady from playing while the appeal process plays out. Judge Berman's decision was a clear and almost comprehensive win for Brady and the NFLPA, but Goodell likely feels he has to appeal in order to save face. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported multiple owners do not want the NFL to appeal and are wondering if Goodell has too much power in player discipline.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said RBs Montee Ball and Kapri Bibbs will get the 'bulk of the work' in the fourth preseason game.

Getting a lot of work in the fourth preseason game is never a good sign for a player's roster status. Ball has fallen way behind C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman and even Juwan Thompson on the depth chart. At this point, he is just fighting for a roster spot. It is a fight he may end up losing.

NJ Advanced Media's Eliot Shorr-Parks believes DeMarco Murray will see 65 percent of the Eagles' running back carries.

Shorr-Parks believes Ryan Mathews gets 30 percent while Darren Sproles sees 5 percent. Eagles' running backs saw 415 carries last season, which would put Murray at 270 carries using Shorr-Parks' prediction. That is higher than the 250 carries the Philadelphia Inquirer "guessed" on Tuesday, but both numbers would have put Murray in the top ten for rushing attempts last season. As long as he stays healthy, Murray will get enough work to return value on his current late-first-round ADP.

Titans CB Jason McCourty called rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham "a beast."

"There’s certain things you can’t teach," McCourty continued, "and you can’t teach a guy to be that big, and to be physical." DGB is an imposing figure at 6'5/237 pounds, but he is a rough around the edges prospect who has yet to earn a spot with the first-team offense. With only Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks to beat out, Green-Beckham should earn a starting role at some point this season. He is a decent late-round flier.

The Philadelphia Daily News said there is a "good chance" Brent Celek leads the Eagles' tight ends in snaps this year.

Just as he has every year since 2009. Chip Kelly reportedly loves Celek, and he offers the Eagles more in the running game than Zach Ertz. Recovering from groin surgery, Ertz may not even suit up early in the season, and when he finally gets back on the field it will again be in a backup role to Celek. Ertz is nothing more than a TE2 flier at this point.

According to Pewter Report, free agent CB Tim Jennings received a contract offer from the Buccaneers.

He left without signing, suggesting the Bucs' offer didn't meet what Jennings is seeking. Jennings has a history with both coach Lovie Smith and DC Leslie Frazier, making a deal more likely than not, even if Jennings needs more time to accept that his NFL value is low. Jennings has yet to take any other visits.

The NFL is not expected to seek an injunction which would keep Tom Brady off the field during the appeal of Thursday's decision.

The NFL will almost certainly appeal the decision to vacate Brady's four-game ban, but they do not have to seek an injunction which would keep Brady off the field. Brady will be under center in the season opener, and barring injury should be the starter all season. He is now a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Cowboys DE Greg Hardy is considering an appeal of his four-game suspension in the wake of Tom Brady's appeal win.

Hardy saw his 10-game suspension reduced to four games in July, but he still feels hard done after being forced to sit out all but one game last year. Brady's win in federal court could give Hardy the confidence to seek out a similar result. If Hardy can earn a stay, the Cowboys' defensive line will be a position of strength entering the season.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman nullified Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

The NFL will likely appeal the decision, but Brady will be under center for the Patriots' opener on September 10. Most reports suggested Brady's team had the stronger case, and the NFL's decision not to pursue a settlement when Brady was reportedly open to one earlier this week is yet another puzzling decision from the NFL office. Brady should now be considered a top-five fantasy option and a solid DFS play in his tasty Week 1 matchup against the Steelers.

Cardinals ILB Sean Weatherspoon is expected to play in the fourth preseason game.

It will be Weatherspoon's debut with the Cardinals and first game action since Week 15 of 2013. A standout when healthy, Arizona needs Weatherspoon to be a rock in their otherwise underwhelming linebacking corps. Weatherspoon has played all 16 games just once in his five-year career.

Redskins rookie WR Jamison Crowder will not face league discipline for a June domestic violence accusation.

Crowder was accused of domestic violence through his Instagram account on June 4. He was never formally accused of any crime, and the NFL's investigation has apparently found nothing to suggest Crowder violated the personal conduct policy. Crowder will open the season as a special teams contributor.
