Broncos coach Vance Joseph said fifth-round TE Jake Butt (knee) will "probably" be placed on the regular season PUP list.

Mike Gillislee (hamstring) returned as a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

A hamstring injury has kept Gillislee out for the past two weeks but he's ready to roll and eager to get his reps in with 16 days until the regular season. There are no assigned roles in New England's crowded backfield, making it a difficult situation to predict for fantasy purposes. With that said, a healthy Gillislee would probably be the favorite for goal-line work in Foxboro, which gives him arguably the most upside.

Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice on Tuesday.

He's back after missing the last week with a lower leg injury. The former wide receiver is locked in as the Packers' lead back and seems to be going around the fourth round in 12-team leagues.

Damarious Randall has cleared the concussion protocol.

He was back in full pads at Tuesday's practice. Barring another injury, Randall will be ready to roll against the Seahawks in Week 1. He's locked in as the Packers' slot corner.

Free agent DL Tyson Jackson will work out for the 49ers on Tuesday.

He worked out for the Rams earlier this month but nothing came of it. The 31-year-old struggled over 389 defensive snaps for Atlanta last season. He wouldn't be much of an upgrade for the Niners.

NFL suspended Chargers C Max Tuerk four games for violating the league's policy on PEDs.

He's eligible to return against the Giants in Week 5. The 2016 third-rounder has yet to play an NFL down.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants aren't concerned about Brandon Marshall's shoulder injury.

Rapsheet was told "he'll be fine" while adding that the Giants have "no worries." Marshall bowed out of Monday's preseason game with a shoulder issue but his X-rays came back negative. It looks like the G-Men dodged a couple of major injury bullets with Marshall and Odell Backham both escaping Monday night's game with only minor ailments.

Updating an earlier report, free agent Trent Richardson will not play in the CFL.

Richardson was nearing a deal with the Saskatchewan Roughriders but instead he'll try to resume his career in the NFL. T-Rich wasn't comfortable signing a one-year deal with a second-year option, which would have locked him into two years playing in Canada. The former third overall pick hasn't played a down in the NFL since 2014.

Drew Stanton has won the Cardinals' backup quarterback job.

He was able to hold off Blaine Gabbert for the No. 2 spot on Arizona's QB depth chart. Stanton started one game in place of an injured Carson Palmer last year, completing 11-of-28 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 5 win over the Niners.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (core) will make his preseason debut Thursday against the Panthers.

"Our plan is to get Jalen in there," said coach Doug Marrone. "He's had a good week." Ramsey resumed practicing last week after getting a late start to camp while recovering from core muscle surgery. He showed well as a rookie last year, earning PFF's No. 21 cornerback grade out of 119 qualifiers.

Browns LB Tank Carder is out for the season with a torn ACL.

It's a big loss as Carder had been slated to start at middle linebacker this year. Now that spot will be manned by second-year linebacker Joe Schobert.
Aug 22 - 3:23 PM

Broncos second-round DL DeMarcus Walker (hip) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Walker went for an MRI on his hip last week but obviously it was nothing serious. This puts him on track for Week 1 against the Chargers.
Aug 22 - 3:20 PM

According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, Odell Beckham will consider taking out a "massive insurance policy" if he doesn't strike a long-term extension with the Giants by Week 1.

Per Robinson, the insurance policy could be in excess of $100 million. An injury protection policy of that magnitude would cost Beckham over $600,000, which would be a substantial chunk of his $1.84 million salary for 2017. Beckham is aiming to be ready for Week 1 after taking a nasty hit in Monday's preseason game against Cleveland. Luckily he escaped with only a sprained ankle.
Aug 22 - 3:03 PM

Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to team drills on Tuesday.

He hadn't practiced since late last month. This gives Forte a little less than three weeks to dust off the cobwebs for Week 1. Stuck in a committee with Bilal Powell and playing for one of the league's worst offenses, the 31-year-old's fantasy arrow is pointing in the wrong direction.
Aug 22 - 2:51 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said there's still no "timeline" for Andrew Luck's (shoulder) return.

Per Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the Colts have just two practices next week and four the week after before heading off to Los Angeles for Week 1 against the Rams. That means that even if Luck is activated off PUP in the next week, he'll have just six practices to shake off the rust before the regular season gets underway. Simply put, Luck is running out of time. Mike Chapell of IndySportsCentral "doubts" Luck will be ready for Week 1 while suggesting Week 3 against Cleveland as a more realistic timeframe. None of this comes as good news for fantasy owners invested in Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief or Jack Doyle.
