Colts defensive tackle Arthur Jones left Saturday’s game against the Rams in a walking boot after injuring his left ankle early in the contest. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that x-rays on the ankle were negative, but coach Chuck Pagano said that Jones would undergo a full evaluation on Sunday. That evaluation will apparently…
The Seahawks starting offense failed to score a touchdown for the third time in three preseason games on Saturday and they managed just two field goals against the Chargers despite playing into the third quarter. Concern created about those shortcomings have largely centered on the passing attack. Russell Wilson was 7-of-15 for 56 yards against…
The Carolina Panthers trimmed their roster by eight players Sunday, most notably veteran offensive tackle Tony Hills. Hills, 30, signed with the Panthers at the beginning of camp. Also waived rookie wide receivers Paul Browning and Avius Capers, punter Matt Wile, tight end Dallas Walker, fullback Lee Ward, defensive end Steve Miller and linebacker Kevin…
If Ray Rice is ever going to get back into the NFL, this may be his best chance. The Browns, who have admitted to at least talking about the possibility of signing Rice, are now in the market for a running back. Coach Mike Pettine said today that the team might have to add a…
The Jaguars have already made their way to 75 players and they kept two kickers through the first wave of cuts. Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union thinks that they may be hoping to land a late-round draft pick in a trade for one of them before the cuts to 53 players. The question would…
The Jaguars didn’t need to wait until Tuesday’s deadline to set their 75-man roster. The team made their moves on Saturday, a day after facing the Lions in their third preseason game of the year. One of the moves is something we’ve been anticipating since their rookie minicamp in May. Defensive end and third overall…
The Eagles gave quarterback G.J. Kinne a chance to try to make the team by showing what he could do as a wide receiver this summer, but those efforts didn’t help him survive the first round of cuts in Philadelphia. Kinne was one of 12 players cut by the Eagles on Sunday as they start…
The Jets can breathe a sigh of relief about defensive end Leonard Williams. The first-round pick was forced from Saturday night’s victory over the Giants with a knee injury. X-rays taken on Saturday night came back negative and there are multiple reports that a subsequent MRI showed no ligament damage. Williams has been diagnosed with a…
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers appears to have avoided serious injury when he banged his right hand during Saturday’s game against the Seahawks and that apparently wasn’t his only close call of the night. Chargers offensive linemen reacted strongly to what they say was an attempt by Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark to punch Rivers after…
Rookie Eddie Goldman’s role with the Bears early in the season is set to be a big one with Jeremiah Ratliff earning a three-game suspension from the league as a result of a DUI, but he’ll need to be healthy to get starts on the defensive line. Right now, Goldman isn’t healthy. He suffered a concussion…
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns rookie running back Duke Johnson is following the NFL's protocol on head injuries after sustaining a concussion in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay.
The New York Jets - and their anxious fans - can exhale. An MRI exam Sunday revealed that rookie defensive lineman Leonard Williams has a muscle strain behind one of his knees, and the team avoided a potentially devastating injury to its first-round draft pick. Williams got hurt in the first half of the Jets' 28-18 preseason victory over the Giants on Saturday night.
Alex Smith was familiar with Jeremy Maclin long before the wide receiver signed with Kansas City, first catching him on television and then studying him on film with the Eagles. ''It was good for us,'' Maclin said. Smith went 15 of 20 for 146 yards and two scores, and the Chiefs led 17-0 before Tennessee finally scored.
Sure, Peyton Manning said, he'd like to have played more this summer - and better. ''I think we can still win games as we're developing the identity,'' Manning said Saturday night when Denver rode its stifling defense and good ground game to a 19-12 win over the sputtering San Francisco 49ers. At least he'll have two-time Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis and receiver Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) by then.
Injuries are piling up in the preseason for the Green Bay Packers. Receiver Randall Cobb was the latest star to get hurt. Shaking off rust, quarterback Sam Bradford was 10 of 10 for 121 yards and three touchdowns in his most extensive action in exhibition play, and the Eagles (3-0) stayed perfect in the preseason with a 39-26 win on Saturday night over the Packers.
Tony Romo got his first and likely only extended action of the preseason for the Dallas Cowboys, and found one of his reliable options even with Dez Bryant sitting out again. On the other side, Minnesota quarterback Teddy Bridgewater completed all seven of his passes and made a connection with his new receiver Mike Wallace as the Vikings won their fourth consecutive game this preseason, 28-14 on Saturday night. ''Teddy was sharp.
Jay Gruden intends to judge the health of Robert Griffin III before choosing his starting quarterback in the regular season. If RG3 can't go, then Kirk Cousins is more than happy to take his place atop the Redskins' depth chart. Cousins filled in capably for Griffin on Saturday night, throwing for 190 yards and a touchdown as Washington beat the Baltimore Ravens 31-13.
The Atlanta Falcons agreed to a $71.25 million, five-year contract extension with Julio Jones on Saturday that compares favorably with recent deals paid to other top wide receivers. The deal, announced by the team before Saturday night's preseason game at Miami, was expected. Owner Arthur Blank recently said an agreement would come soon, and he has consistently said he wants Jones to play his full career with the Falcons.
Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams agreed to terms Saturday on a new five-year contract that comes with $32 million in guaranteed money. Williams' agent, Vincent Taylor, said Williams will receive an $8.5 million signing bonus. Taylor said the contract is the largest in NFL history for an offensive tackle.

One of the thoughts when the Philadelphia Eagles signed quarterback Tim Tebow was that Chip Kelly could use him as a two-point conversion specialist.It made sense. Tebow is a great goal-line option because he's big and athletic. And if preseason is any indication, there will be many more two-point tries throughout the NFL with the new extra point rule. On Saturday night, Kelly rolled out that plan, sending Tebow in for the first two two-point conversions of the game.It didn't go well, though it was a very tiny sample. On the first attempt, Tebow was stuffed on a run. On the second, he field…
