PJulio JonesWR ATL (11) 10 hours ago
Head coach Dan Quinnn said Thursday that Jones (ankle) could return to practice as soon as Sunday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Jones left Thursday's preseason game with an ankle injury, and although he did not return to action, Quinn told reporters that the star wideout wanted to re-enter the contest. The Sunday timeline for Jones' return likely means that the Falcons will be off Friday and Saturday, so it appears that Jones will be back as soon as possible without missing any time.
PNdamukong SuhDL MIA (8) 11 hours ago
Head coach Adam Gase said after Thursday's game that Suh's ankle was "ok," Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
There was a scary moment in Thursday's preseason game that resulted in Suh gingerly walking back to the locker room with the help of team trainers. Fortunately, Gase's comments suggest that Suh was able to dodge any serious injury to his ankle. The Dolphins figure to have an official update on Suh's status in the coming days.
QDarian ThompsonDB NYG (8) 11 hours ago
Thompson (shoulder) is on track to play in the Giants' Week 1 matchup against the Cowboys. "He will be ready...by him being young, I truly believe that he will be ready to go," said said defensive backs coach Davit Merritt on Thursday.
Although Thompson will sit out of the Giants' third preseason game this weekend, the coaching staff has little doubt that the rookie safety will be ready once the season gets underway. Thompson, a third round selection out of Boise State, suffered a bruised shoulder in the Giants' last preseason game that has him officially listed as week-to-week. Provided that Thompson can remain on track with his recovery, he could start at free safety when the Giants open their season against their division rivals.
PTony RomoQB DAL (7) 12 hours ago
Romo left Thursday's matchup with the Seahwaks early due to an apparent back injury.
Romo was scrambling and attempting to slide when he was hit from behind. He was subsequently replaced under center by Dak Prescott. Romo was checked out by the trainers on the sideline, and began throwing in an attempt to return to the game. However, the Cowboys have indicated he will not return due to a coaches decision. It is unsurprising that the team is choosing to be cautious with their star quarterback. Expect them to continue exercising caution in the short term as a means of avoiding a lingering issue.
PUPDuane Brown HOU (9) 12 hours ago
Brown (torn quadriceps) is not expected to be ready for the regular-season opener, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
The Texans are being overly cautious with their left tackle and may keep Brown on the physically unable to perform list to open the season. If he remains on the PUP list to start the season, Brown will not be eligible to return until after Week 6. Meanwhile, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports sources indicating no final decision about the PUP list has been made, but it wouldn't be surprising if Brown was at least held out of the first game. Chris Clark has been filling at left tackle while Brown has been unavailable.
QJustin HardyWR ATL (11) 12 hours ago
Hardy suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins and will not return to the game.
The Falcons would rather be safe than sorry as they give the wideout the rest of the night off. Hardy will join Julio Jones on the sidelines for the remainder of the game, who also suffered some sort of ankle injury on Thursday night. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but expect more clarity on the matter once the team releases information in the next couple of days.
DeAndre WashingtonRB OAK (10) 13 hours ago
Washington will get first team reps during Saturday's preseason game against the Titans, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports.
Coach Jack Del Rio plans to allow Washington, along with fellow running back Jalen Richard (knee), to see reps with the first-team offensive line Saturday as they compete for a role in the Raiders' backfield. Washington has picked up momentum throughout the preseason in terms of securing his spot in the pecking order behind Latavius Murray, while Richard has been out due to injury. If Washington is able to put together a solid performance again Saturday and during the team's final exhibition contest, he could be a relevant fantasy option in most formats given his potential.
PJelani JenkinsLB MIA (8) 13 hours ago
Jenkins left Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins after injuring his ankle and is questionable to return, James Walker of ESPN reports.
Jenkins is a starting linebacker for the Dolphins, and as such it would be quite the surprise if he returns to the game after getting dinged up. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but given the questionable to return designation it likely isn't considered very serious. Look for Neville Hewitt to see some extra snaps if Jenkins can't return.
PJulio JonesWR ATL (11) 13 hours ago
Jones is questionable to return to Thursday's matchup with the Dolphins due to an ankle injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Considering the circumstances it is unlikely the Falcons will allow their star receiver to take the field again if he is dealing with an ankle issue. Jones had recorded one catch for 17 yards on two targets prior to leaving the game. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but expect more clarity on his status when more information is made available.
PNdamukong SuhDL MIA (8) 13 hours ago
Suh left Thursday's game against the Falcons after injuring his ankle, he's considered questionable to return, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Though he's officially listed as questionable, it would be very surprising if Suh returned to Thursday's game. He's one of the team's best defensive players and it's not worth playing him through injury in an exhibition game. Chris Jones figures to see some extra snaps with Suh coming out a bit early.
