Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Friday night that LT George Fant (ACL) is done for the season.

Carroll called it a "significant" ACL injury, and suggested there may have been more ligament damage. The injury indeed looked brutal on the field. The Seahawks turned to sometimes guard Rees Odhiambo as their first-team left tackle in Fant's absence. They could also look at LG Luke Joeckel as a left guard alternative, or give un-retired free agent Branden Albert a phone call.

Seahawks seventh-round RB Chris Carson turned six carries into 27 yards and one catch into 17 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

While Eddie Lacy plodded his way to 23 yards on seven touches, Carson exploded for 44 yards on his seven opportunities and looked clearly to be the more determined downhill back. Carson essentially earned an RBBC with Lacy, playing 9-of-22 snaps with the Russell Wilson first-team offense compared to Lacy's 13 first-team plays. Carson has played himself onto the radar in re-draft leagues.

Kasen Williams caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

Building on his 4-119 line from last week, Williams ran exclusively with the Russell Wilson group, playing 11 of the first 15 snaps while making a 27-yard one-handed catch in Xavier Rhodes' coverage before then nabbing a one-yard touchdown on a fade. Williams could (should) have had another touchdown but dropped a 45-yarder that hit him in the belly. Williams is passing Jermaine Kearse for No. 4 receiver duties behind Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, and Tyler Lockett, and both Richardson and Lockett have big durability concerns.

Stefon Diggs caught 4-of-5 targets for 65 yards in the Vikings' second preseason game against the Seahawks.

Minnesota's starters played the bulk of the first half. Diggs' big gain was a 39-yard catch-and-run where he got behind Earl Thomas, beating zone coverage. Diggs has had a quiet summer, sort of lurking in the tall grass, but he has massive upside, especially in PPR leagues as long as his health cooperates. Diggs is a legit talent who has 90-plus catches upside this season.

Eddie Lacy rushed six times for 20 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

He has 30 yards on 10 preseason carries with the lone reception. Lacy started tonight only because Thomas Rawls is battling a mild ankle sprain, and even so merely shared first-team duties with rookie Chris Carson, who played 9-of-22 first-team snaps to Lacy's 13. Lacy has looked neither powerful nor explosive this preseason. We would advise avoiding him before the late rounds of drafts.

Dalvin Cook rushed seven times for 40 yards in Friday's second preseason game against the Seahawks.

He also caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards. In a little over one half of football this preseason, Cook has touched the ball 17 times. With Jerick McKinnon back for the exhibition, it was notable that Cook was the starter and played every snap with the ones before McKinnon came on late in the first half. The starting job is Cook's to lose, and he's done anything but that this summer. Cook's ADP is skyrocketing by the hour. He's now going in the third round of drafts.
Aug 18 - 11:51 PM

Russell Wilson completed 13-of-18 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

And he did almost all of it against the Vikings' first-team defense. The unfortunate news was Wilson losing LT George Fant to a potentially serious leg injury. Wilson was as sharp as ever, hooking up with Kasen Williams and Doug Baldwin for big gains and showing complete command of the offense as both a rusher and passer. Wilson has fantasy overall QB1 upside in his sixth NFL season.

Seahawks rookie WR Amara Darboh left Friday's preseason game to be evaluated for a concussion.

Darboh took a huge hit to the helmet while playing with the back end of the first-team offense. We don't expect to see him for the remainder of the night.
Aug 18 - 11:26 PM

Seahawks LT George Fant exited Friday night's second preseason game with a knee injury.

Fant got rolled up from the side and behind via friendly fire from teammate C Justin Britt. Fant immediately grabbed his leg and had to be carted off the field in an air cast. He's certainly done for the season. Fant was drawing big praise for his development this offseason. It's a big loss to an already questionable line. 2016 third-rounder Rees Odhiambo replaced Fant.
Aug 18 - 10:57 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott is "optimistic" LT Cordy Glenn (foot) will return soon.

Glenn has been shut down since getting a pain-killing injection this week. He's reportedly "moving in the right direction" but isn't a lock to be ready for Opening Day. With Seantrel Henderson suspended, the Bills may be forced to make a veteran signing if Glenn has a setback. Branden Albert, King Dunlap, and Will Beatty are potential free agent options.
Aug 18 - 8:51 PM

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said rookie RG Dan Feeney "remains in the battle" for a starting job.

Feeney has been mixing in first-team reps with Kenny Wiggins. Feeney's nondescript preseason and lack of mauling strength are concerns to his starting chances, but he's a better pass protector than Wiggins.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirms Jacksonville's starting quarterback job is "wide open."

It's "not a forgone conclusion" Blake Bortles has lost his job despite a shaky preseason. Coach Doug Marrone refused to commit to Bortles following Thursday's game, but the Jaguars haven't given up on him as their starter. Jacksonville isn't expected to pursue any outside options, leaving Bortles and Chad Henne to compete for the Week 1 job.
Aug 18 - 8:05 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Cam Newton (shoulder) is "throwing more each day and feels fine."

Newton has been ruled out for Saturday, but is on track to play in Carolina's third preseason game. Derek Anderson will continue to start in his place.
Aug 18 - 7:12 PM

Jordan Howard (eye) won't play in Saturday's preseason game.

Howard suffered a "minor abrasion" in Friday's walkthrough. He won't travel to Arizona, but it's a non-serious issue. Howard should return to practice next week.
Aug 18 - 7:04 PM

Tom Brady will play in Saturday's preseason game.

Brady was rested in the preseason opener. The Patriots plan to play the majority of their starters against the Texans, but will continue to hold out Rob Gronkowski.
