DeShone Kizer completed 8-of-13 passes for 74 yards in the Browns' second preseason game Monday night.

Most of his damage was done with his legs, as Kizer rushed five times for 35 yards and a touchdown that came from one yard out on a sneak. While he did lead two scoring drives in four possessions, Kizer wasn't all that impressive in this one. He held onto the ball too long at times, taking two sacks, and should have thrown a brutal interception on a third down in his own territory but the play was called back on a penalty. Brock Osweiler started and threw a pick on his two possessions of work. The quarterback spot remains a concern for Cleveland. Kizer probably isn't ready, but Osweiler is a known commodity who simply isn't good.

Odell Beckham's X-ray on his injured ankle came back negative.

The Giants say OBJ will "undergo further examination," but it's more confirmation that Beckham has apparently avoided serious injury. He came back out to the sideline for the start of the second half dressed in street clothes and walking without a noticeable limp. We can all exhale and take a deep breath.

Brandon Marshall is undergoing an X-ray on his shoulder.

It's unclear when the injury happened, as Marshall caught a short little out route pass on the final play of the first half and didn't appear to be injured on the play. He didn't come out after halftime with the starters done for the night. Marshall has long been one of the toughest receivers in the league.

Odell Beckham (ankle) has cleared the concussion protocol.

He was evaluated but passed the tests. The ankle remains the concern here, but a positive was he walked off the field and to the locker room under his own power. By all accounts, for now, Beckham appears to have avoided anything serious. It could have been much worse after he took a helmet to the knee. It was a vicious, legal hit, but definitely left fans with their stomachs in their throats.

The Giants announced Odell Beckham suffered a sprained ankle in Monday night's second preseason game.

ESPN's Lisa Salters reported from outside the locker room that OBJ is also being evaluated for a concussion. Beckham's injury looked nothing to do with his ankle, but that's what the team is going with for now. He took a direct helmet-to-knee shot from Browns DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun and limped to the locker room but was unable to make it all the way down the tunnel before falling to both knees on the ground with a towel draped over his head. We'll continue to provide updates.

Brock Osweiler completed 6-of-8 passes for 25 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Browns' second preseason game against the Giants.

Osweiler got the start and played the first two series before giving way to rookie DeShone Kizer, who the Browns wanted to see get some work with the starters. Osweiler's first series ended with him throwing a red-zone interception off a tipped pass at the line. Despite being a towering 6-foot-7, tipped passes have long been a problem for Osweiler due to a long, looping delivery. Osweiler's completion percentage looks great, but his receivers had to adjust to a number of poorly thrown balls. Accuracy remains a massive problem. Cleveland doesn't stand much of a chance with Osweiler.

Odell Beckham exited Monday's second preseason game against the Browns with a potential knee injury.

Under a minute into the second quarter, Beckham caught a pass down the right side of the field that required him to leave his feet. Amidst coming down, Browns CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun delivered a crushing helmet-to-knee tackle on OBJ, causing Beckham to throw the ball and limp off the field. He walked under his own power to the locker room before crumbling to the floor in the tunnel. His knee took the direct hit and bent somewhat awkwardly. Hopefully it isn't serious.

Leonard Fournette (foot) has been ruled out for the Jaguars' third preseason game.

It's a quick rule-out, but the Jaguars do play Thursday night on a short week. The third preseason game is viewed as the most important as the regular-season dress rehearsal, and it's unlikely Fournette will play in the fourth one. If he's done for the summer, Fournette will have played just 12 snaps. He said he'll play Week 1, but this is the same foot that hampered Fournette at LSU.

Colts signed CB Corey White, formerly of the Bills.

White appeared in 15 games for the Bills last season, making four starts and totaling 412 snaps. Clearly looking for secondary help, the Colts added both White and CB Chris Culliver on Monday. The cornerback job opposite Vontae Davis remains a sore spot on defense. It's anybody's job.
Aug 21 - 7:03 PM

Colts signed CB Chris Culliver, formerly of the Dolphins.

Once a promising talent for the Jim Harbaugh-led 49ers, Culliver has floundered in recent years bouncing around with the Redskins and Dolphins. He didn't even play in a game last season as he worked his way back from a 2015 torn ACL. Now 29, Culliver helps fills a need but is a question mark.
Aug 21 - 6:34 PM

Coach Doug Marrone said after the Jaguars' second preseason game that the left guard job is wide open.

Patrick Omameh was viewed as the heavy favorite when camp started, but he was dreadful this past week in joint practices and the second preseason game against the Bucs. (Playing against DT Gerald McCoy every day will do that.) Marrone has reopened the competition. Luke Bowanko is in the mix. Determined to play power-run football, the Jaguars need good guard play.

Seahawks acquired T/G Matt Tobin and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

Seattle is scrambling for tackle options after losing George Fant. Tobin started at right guard for the 2015 Eagles, showing promise as a run blocker but getting destroyed in pass protection. He was demoted into a deep reserve role last season. Tobin should only be viewed as depth for the Seahawks.

According to NJ.com's Matt Lombardo, LeGarrette Blount has dealt with "weight issues" at Eagles camp, and has "disappointed" in practice.

Both Lombardo and NFL insider Adam Caplan have suggested Blount might not make the Eagles. Signed to a mere one-year, $1.25 million deal with next to no guarantees, Blount has reportedly been outplayed by Wendell Smallwood, and looked lost running out of the shotgun in Philly's second preseason game.
Aug 21 - 5:18 PM

The Seahawks will give 2016 third-round pick Rees Odhiambo the first crack at winning their starting left tackle job.

The Seahawks are looking for a replacement after losing George Fant (ACL). At 6-foot-4, 314 with 33 1/4-inch arms, Odhiambo lacks optimal left tackle size but isn't terribly far off the typical size thresholds. Either way, the Seahawks' offensive line is likely to be an adventure for another season.
Aug 21 - 5:12 PM

John Brown (quad) returned to Cardinals practice on Monday.

As Brown must attend an upcoming funeral, he was able to practice today and will meet the Cardinals in Atlanta for their third preseason game. It's unclear whether Brown will get snaps in the regular season dress rehearsal, but it does finally look like he's progressing. He remains a risky double-digit-round pick.
