Dak PrescottQB DAL (7) 2 hours ago
Prescott was again impressive this time against the Seahawks stingy defense Thursday night. He played nearly three quarters, completing 17 of 23 passes for 116 yards, 1 TD and a 99.2 passer rating, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Tony Romo went down early in the game with a back injury, though Romo was later seen throwing on the sideline. In any event, Prescott has passed every test this preseason and looks like a viable backup to an injury prone quarterback behind an elite offensive line and with one of the league's top receivers.
PThomas RawlsRB SEA (5) 2 hours ago
Rawls' teammate Christine Michael has looked fantastic this preseason.
Rawls was great last year as a rookie and is ostensibly still the team's starting back. But given he's returning from an ankle injury and Michael has looked so good this preseason, there has to be some concern about the potential for a timeshare on early downs.
Christine MichaelRB SEA (5) 2 hours ago
Michael finished with 58 yards on seven carries against the Cowboys Thursday night, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Michael has 157 yards on 24 carries this preseason (6.5 YPC.) At this point, he's shown enough that even if Thomas Rawls proves 100 percent healthy, there's likely to be some kind of timeshare on early downs. And if Rawls has a setback with his ankle, Michael has major upside.
Ezekiel ElliottRB DAL (7) 2 hours ago
Elliott carried seven times for 49 yards against the Seahawks and looked quick and nimble running outside the tackles, the Dallas Morning News reports.
He also showed physicality and blocking ability. With the hamstring injury behind him, Elliott's looking like one of the top running back options in the league.
PIsaiah PeadRB MIA (8) 6 hours ago
Pead suffered a hamstring injury Thursday but it is believed to be minor, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.
According to Lieser, Pead could have to returned to action Thursday if it were a regular season game. However, given that it was a preseason game, the Dolphins took the cautious route and held out Pead for the remainder of the game after he injured his hamstring. Pead only had one carry for one yard Thursday, but he was solid as a pass catcher out of the backfield as he caught all three of his targets for 14 yards. He figures to return to practice in the near future.
PAdrian ClaybornDL ATL (11) 6 hours ago
Clayborn will undergo an MRI on his left shoulder Friday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The defensive end suffered a shoulder injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins and was unable to return. Friday's MRI figures to shed light on the extent of Clayborn's shoulder injury. If the injury proves to be serious, it'd be a blow to a Falcons pass rush that finished dead last in the league in sacks last year, taking down the quarterback a mere 19 times.
Damien WilliamsRB MIA (8) 6 hours ago
Williams gained 17 yards and scored a touchdown on five carries while securing both of his targets for two yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason victory over the Falcons.
The reserve back actually outgained both Arian Foster and Jay Ajayi on the ground, while getting into the end zone for the second straight week. Williams should once again fill a complementary role in the backfield in 2016 if he survives final cuts, after having played in all 16 games in each of his first two Dolphins seasons. With some serviceable receiving skills, the OU product offers some third-down value in particular.
PBrandon WildsRB ATL (11) 6 hours ago
Wilds suffered a knee injury Thursday and did not return, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC reports.
The rookie running back suffered the injury late in Thursday's contest, so the fact that he did not return does not necessarily mean that he's dealing with anything serious. Still, any additional missed time for Wilds could be problematic for a running back fighting for a roster spot with cuts looming. Prior to leaving the game, Wilds actually led the Falcons in rushing Thursday, taking three carries for 11 yards against a Dolphins defense that allowed just 31 yards on the ground.
Jarvis LandryWR MIA (8) 6 hours ago
Landry secured four of five targets for 40 yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason victory over the Falcons.
Ryan Tannehill's top target the last two seasons turned in another solid outing, tallying four catches for the second straight game. Landry made his grabs on a number of different routes, with a long of 16 yards. He seems to have made a seamless transition to new head coach Adam Gase's offense if preseason is any indication, giving him sky-high PPR upside once again in 2016.
Kenny StillsWR MIA (8) 6 hours ago
Stills secured four of six targets for 46 yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason victory over the Falcons.
The fourth-year pro continued his impressive preseason by pacing the Dolphins in yardsage and targets, while tying Jarvis Landry for the team high in catches. Stills connected with Ryan Tannehill early and often, with their only hiccup coming when the receiver inadvertently assisted Marcus Trufant in making an interception by tipping a pass up in the air and into the corner's hands. The OU product appears to be very comfortable in new head coach Adam Gase's offensive system, and if preseason is any indication, could be in for a much better season than his initial campaign in a Dolphins uniform.
