Steelers released LB Jordan Zumwalt.

The cuts are beginning. Zumwalt hasn't played a single regular season snap since arriving as a sixth-round pick in 2014. The Steelers have also placed fourth-round OT Jerald Hawkins (shoulder) on injured reserve. They'll need to trim their roster to 75 by Tuesday.

Christian Hackenberg completed 6-of-16 passes for 105 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's preseason game.

Hackenberg's debut performance showed exactly why he's buried on the team's depth chart. The second-round pick got hot for a stretch with four straight completions on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive but was a non-factor the rest of the night. He threw an ugly interception in his own end zone late in the fourth quarter to set up the Giants' game-winning drive and also took an inexcusable delay of game penalty. It was an uninspiring effort for Hackenberg, who is destined to spend his rookie year glued to the Jets' bench.

Jets ILB David Harris (shoulder) will have an MRI on Sunday.

He left Saturday's preseason game with a shoulder injury after getting in a pileup at the end of the first half. Harris underwent X-rays after the game, which came back negative. Obviously we won't know much until his results come back, but ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini said the team is optimistic about his status. For now, consider him day to day.

Falcons signed SS Dashon Goldson, formerly of the Redskins.

Goldson must have looked good at Saturday's workout because it took the Falcons less than 24 hours to sign him. It's a smart deal for Atlanta with rookie Keanu Neal slated to miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing a knee scope. Despite his All-Pro pedigree, the 31-year-old Goldson will likely begin the year backing up Kemal Ishmael at strong safety.

Jared Goff suffered a bruised tailbone in Saturday's preseason game.

His X-rays, which were deemed precautionary, came back negative. Goff had another rough night Saturday against the Broncos, completing just 4-of-12 passes for an underwhelming 45 yards and no touchdowns. He's looked surprisingly fragile and clearly isn't ready to take the reigns as L.A.'s starting quarterback. Considering what the Rams gave up for him (and who's ahead of him on the depth chart), Goff's play this preseason has been a major disappointment.

Cody Latimer (knee) will undergo an MRI on Sunday.

The results should give us a clearer idea of when we might see Latimer back on a football field. The third-year wideout injured himself on a block in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams. Latimer downplayed the injury after the game, though beat writer Troy Renck of the Denver Post said he saw him walking with a noticeable limp. Latimer's Week 1 status is now in flux.

Mark Sanchez didn't play in Saturday's preseason game.

The fact that Sanchez was glued to a clipboard for Denver's regular season dress rehearsal tells you all you need to know about his "competition" with Trevor Siemian, but it doesn't necessarily mean he will be cut. Sanchez is a known commodity to anyone who has watched NFL football since 2009. The Broncos needed to see as much of Siemian and Paxton Lynch as possible. Sanchez's release remains a distinct possibility, of course. Cutting him would save $4.5 million, and get the Broncos their seventh-round pick back.

Paxton Lynch completed 6-of-13 passes for 57 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday’s preseason game.

He recorded one yard on four rushing attempts, though two were kneel-downs. It was a tepid effort for Lynch, who missed an opportunity to put distance between himself and Mark Sanchez, who is on the bubble. Lynch got off to a nice start by completing his first four passes but limped to the finish with seven misses over his last nine throws. To be fair, Lynch was playing with backups and the Broncos used a run-heavy approach featuring Devontae Booker and Ronnie Hillman. Lynch's longest completion came on a 17-yard screen to Booker. Lynch has shown flashes during preseason play but Trevor Siemian remains the odds-on favorite to start Week 1 against Carolina.

Rams WR Pharoh Cooper caught one pass for 19 yards in Saturday's third preseason game.

Cooper's lone target came with the second-team offense. The fourth-round rookie has been working as the Rams' No. 3 receiver for most of the summer, but saw fewer looks than Brian Quick this evening. Regardless of whether he's No. 3 or 4, Cooper isn't on the re-draft radar.

Ronnie Hillman rushed five times for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Long an inconsistent back, Hillman flashed his trademark foot quickness and burst on a handful of nice runs as Hillman continues to fight for his roster life. He worked behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker for the second straight game. In order to keep his job, Hillman may still need the Broncos to keep four backs. No. 4 runner Kapri Bibbs has more special teams value.
Aug 28 - 12:00 AM

Brian Quick caught 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in Saturday's third preseason game.

Quick spent some time with the first-team offense. Quick has had a horrendous preseason, catching only six passes for 55 yards and getting called out by coach Jeff Fisher for drops, but doesn't appear to be on the roster bubble. He is behind rookie Pharoh Cooper. Quick hasn't been the same since his severe 2014 shoulder injury.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio insisted Latavius Murray's reduced playing time in the third preseason game was not indicative of Murray's starting job coming into question.

Murray took a backseat as rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard ran with the Derek Carr group. Del Rio insists Murray is not falling into a committee, saying "we saw (Latavius) last year. We need to find out who will be the backup." Both rookies shined, with Washington totaling 53 yards and a touchdown on 11 touches and Richard parlaying nine touches into 42 yards. Washington is a recommended handcuff for Murray in all leagues.

Rams RB Benny Cunningham rushed six times for 22 yards in Los Angeles' third preseason game.

Todd Gurley sat this one out, so Cunningham ran with the first-team offense. When Gurley is playing, Cunningham is the Rams' pass-protection specialist and plays on special teams. Cunningham is locked in as the team's No. 2 back.
Aug 27 - 11:47 PM

The Rams held Todd Gurley out of their third preseason game.

Gurley will finish the preseason with only four carries as the Rams mothball him for the regular season. He'll get as much work as he can handle once the lights come on. Gurley is surrounded by very little talent, and doesn't catch many passes, but still has as much upside as any back in the league.
Aug 27 - 11:43 PM

Rams WR Kenny Britt caught 2-of-4 targets for 20 yards in Saturday night's third preseason game.

He has five preseason catches for 55 yards. The Rams' No. 2 wideout behind Tavon Austin, Britt plays a complementary role in Los Angeles' run-first offense. 28-year-old Britt is coming off a 36-681-3 line across 16 starts.
