NFL suspended Chargers DE Damion Square four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

He'll be eligible to return against the Raiders in Week 5. Square missed a drug test, which counts the same as if he had tested positive. The third-year defensive end spent most of last year on the Chargers' practice squad but did make six appearances late in the season.

Titans C/G Andy Gallik underwent a knee scope and will miss "at least" the remainder of the preseason.

Last year's sixth-rounder, Gallik is competing for a backup job along the interior.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) said he "can see the light" and is nearing the end of his recovery.

Beachum tore his ACL last October and just recently progressed to doing one-on-one pass-blocking drills in practice this week. "Very close," Beachum said. "I don’t know how close, but I feel really close to being similar to myself." Beachum says he's ready now, but the decision is up to coach Gus Bradley.

Kendall Wright (hamstring) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Wright hasn't practiced in three weeks and missed pretty much all of training camp and the first two preseason games. He's also going to now miss the all-important third exhibition. Coach Mike Mularkey has already expressed his frustration with Wright's injury issues over the past two years. Wright should still have the slot role when he gets back, but his leash will be tight.

Coach Mike Mularkey promised Wednesday that the Titans will "find ways" to get Derrick Henry on the field this season.

Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.

Jeremy Langford (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Langford appears to be questionable at best for the Bears' regular season dress rehearsal, but this is a step in the right direction after his foot was stepped on in Chicago's second preseason game, and Langford spent the next day in a walking boot. All signs still point to this being a minor "injury".

Coach Doug Pederson said Dorial Green-Beckham will work with the first-team offense in Saturday's third preseason game.

Green-Beckham got some run in the first half of last Thursday's preseason game just 48 hours after being acquired from the Titans. Now that he's had some practices under his belt, DGB is feeling more comfortable in the system and will be given an opportunity to climb a painfully-weak depth chart.

John Brown missed Cardinals practice with a headache on Wednesday.

We usually wait three days to blurb players with seemingly day-to-day injuries, but this is especially concerning after Brown missed three weeks of training camp with a concussion. He was cleared to practice earlier this week. Brown will likely be placed back into the NFL's concussion protocol. We're not quite worried that he'll miss Week 1, but the situation is increasingly troubling.

Coach Pete Caroll confirmed Thomas Rawls (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game, but did say Rawls "will play in the season opener."

It's pretty much as expected and what has been reported the past few days. But it's good to hear it straight from the coach's mouth, even if that coach sees things through rose-colored glasses. Rawls resumed practicing without limitations three days ago. He needs to start the season strong to hold off a back-from-the-dead Christine Michael, who has looked impressive this preseason.

Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday after missing the previous nine days.

Gronkowski "pulled up lame" on August 15, and that's all the media was able to glean from the "injury," though NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the issue, whatever it was, was minor. The Patriots have no reason to push Gronk through summer practices. He'll be fine for the Week 1 opener.

Redskins acquired C Bryan Stork from the Patriots in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Leaking to the media their intentions to cut Stork early Wednesday, the Patriots were able to finagle something that's slightly more than nothing out of Washington. Now the Redskins are on the hook for Stork's contract, as well. Stork will compete with ineffective incumbent C Kory Lichtensteiger to start in D.C.

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports the Chargers recently offered holdout No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa "their best offer," but Bosa rejected it and talks "are nowhere."

This is past being ridiculous, but it's only getting worse. There was a report earlier this week that the Chargers were willing to give Bosa $10 million of his $17 million signing bonus up front, but that's still not good enough for Bosa's camp. This looks like it could seriously linger into the regular season, and the Chargers have pulled their most recent offer. They also released a public statement, making this a PR war now. In the statement, the team said it'll have to now adjust any further offers because Bosa isn't going to be able to play all 16 regular-season games due to all the missed time. This is getting ugly.

Updating a previous item, Josh Gordon is scheduled to be a restricted free agent in 2017.

Due to his suspensions, Gordon's contract tolled -- "rolled over" -- and he's under the Browns' control for the next two seasons. It's notable because of Tuesday's trade rumor that popped up, as any acquiring team would consider it beneficial to have Gordon under control for not just 12 games.

Corey Coleman (hamstring) said he's "full go" and will play in the Browns' third preseason game Friday.

His latest hamstring issue is "officially over," per ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi. Coleman has been practicing for the past week, but did sit out the second preseason game. The third, classified as the regular-season dress rehearsal, is the most important. Coleman needs to keep his hammy healthy.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson believes third-round RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) could open the season on injured reserve.

New I.R. rules implemented this season allow teams to stash players on the injured list and then later make a call which one they want to activate off "designated for return." Jackson thinks it could be Drake in an effort to get all four of Arian Foster, Jay Ajayi, Isaiah Pead, and Damien Williams on the opening day, 53-man roster. Drake has missed a ton of practice time with a pulled hammy.
