Sam BradfordQB PHI (4) 8 hours ago
Bradford completed 17 of 20 pass attempts for 167 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 33-23 preseason win over the Colts.
Bradford got off to a rough start Saturday, taking a sack and throwing an interception in his own territory on his first drive, but he rebounded and efficiently led a pair of touchdown drives before exiting the contest at the half. He notably threw a touchdown pass to new acquisition Dorial Green-Beckham, which could be a harbinger of good things to come, should the two begin to build a rapport. Bradford is unlikely to play in next week's preseason finale and should see his next action when Week 1 of the regular season arrives.
QChris PantaleTE PHI (4) 8 hours ago
Pantale was removed from Saturday's preseason game at Indianapolis in order to undergo an evaluation for a head injury.
Pantale was already in a precarious position in his quest to make the Eagles' 53-man roster, and a concussion could be the final nail in the coffin. Nevertheless, his status should be clarified by the Eagles in due time.
Daniel BrownWR BAL (8) 8 hours ago
Brown caught his only target for a six-yard gain in Saturday's preseason win over the Lions.
A 2015 UDFA and converted wide receiver, Brown looked like a long shot to make the final roster, but his odds improved Saturday when starting tight end Ben Watson suffered a torn Achilles. The Ravens are carrying seven tight ends, but with Darren Waller and Nick Boyle both suspended to start the season, Brown now has a shot to join Crockett Gillmore, Dennis Pitta (finger) and Maxx Williams (undisclosed) on the Week 1 roster.
QWendell SmallwoodRB PHI (4) 8 hours ago
Smallwood left Saturday's preseason contest at Indianapolis in order to be evaluated for a head injury.
Smallwood has spent the majority of his first preseason tending to a quadriceps injury but was cleared to take the field Saturday. The rookie was faring well prior to his departure, recording two carries for 11 yards, one reception for five yards, and one kick return for 30 yards. If he's indeed diagnosed with a concussion, Smallwood's chances of supplanting fellow running back Kenjon Barner from the third spot on the depth chart would be hindered, to say the least.
QKenneth DixonRB BAL (8) 8 hours ago
Dixon (knee sprain) will have an MRI on Sunday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Dixon crumpled to the ground on a hard goal-line hit during the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Lions, eventually needing help to get off the field. He was diagnosed with a sprained knee shortly thereafter, and while head coach John Harbaugh believes the rookie avoided an "overly serious injury", Dixon will still have an MRI on Sunday to provide clarification. Prior to the injury, Dixon had a highly encouraging night, getting much of his work with the first-team offense and gaining 41 yards on six carries. If he isn't ready for Week 1, it would improve Terrance West and Javorius Allen's chances to earn significant roles behind presumed starter Justin Forsett.
Crockett GillmoreTE BAL (8) 8 hours ago
Gillmore caught his lone target for a two-yard gain in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.
Though he hasn't made much noise this preseason, Gillmore now stands a chance to reclaim his starting job from last year, after Ben Watson suffered a torn Achilles on the first snap of Saturday's game. Previously expected to start, Watson will instead miss the entire 2016 season, leaving the tight end position in the hands of Gillmore, Maxx Williams (undisclosed) and Dennis Pitta (finger). Gillmore is the best blocker of that trio, as well as the only one that actually played in Saturday's game. However, Pitta is listed second on the preseason depth chart, with Gillmore third and Williams fourth. If all three are healthy, they'll likely split snaps and targets in a manner that precludes consistent fantasy contributions.
Javorius AllenRB BAL (8) 9 hours ago
Allen gained 15 yards on eight carries and 17 yards on four receptions (four targets) in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.
Allen was the fourth Baltimore running back to enter the game, behind Justin Forsett, Kenneth Dixon (knee) and Terrance West. While the playing time allotment didn't bode well for Allen's Week 1 role, his competition may have thinned out a bit Saturday, as Dixon left the gamewith a knee injury that required him to be carried off the field. Although West seems to have moved ahead of Allen in the pecking order for carries, Dixon's potential absence could help Allen secure a role in the passing game.
OUTJack Mewhort IND (10) 9 hours ago
Mewhort is believed to have torn his ACL, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
Mewhort has been the Colts starter at left guard. His injury represents a blow to quarterback Andrew Luck, who was already operating behind a sketchy offensive line.
Terrance WestRB BAL (8) 9 hours ago
West gained 43 yards on seven carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.
Justin Forsett and Kenneth Dixon (knee) got most of the first-team work, with West mixing in for a few snaps. After Dixon left the game with a knee injury shortly before halftime, West and Javorius Allen shared the backfield until late in the fourth quarter, with the latter gaining 15 yards on eight carries and 17 yards on four receptions. Justin Forsett seems to be locked in as the starter, but the Baltimore backfield is still difficult to assess, with Dixon, West and Allen all having a case to get touches. West could have a role Week 1 against the Bills, as he's arguably been the most impressive of the bunch this preseason, and Dixon may not even available.
Zach ZennerRB DET (10) 9 hours ago
Zenner gained 13 yards on three carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.
With Stevan Ridley released earlier in the week, Zenner is all but assured of a spot on the final roster. The two players were competing for Detroit's power-back job, which could be similar to the role Joique Bell filled last season. It's still unclear how much of a threat Zenner poses to the workload of lead back Ameer Abdullah.
