Stefon DiggsWR MIN (6) 3 hours ago
Diggs caught five passes for 71 yards on five targets in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Digs tied for the team lead in targets with Kyle Rudolph, who caught three passes for 56 yards and a touchdown but also lost a fumble. Teddy Bridgewater played until halftime, and Diggs led the wideout corps with 29 first-half snaps, followed by Charles Johnson (25), Adam Thielen (17) Laquon Treadwell (nine) and Cordarrelle Patterson (4), according to Pro Football Focus. While Treadwell figures to eventually push for more snaps, he's more of a threat to Johnson than to Diggs.
PTeddy BridgewaterQB MIN (6) 3 hours ago
Bridgewater completed 12 of 16 passes for a touchdown in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Bridgewater answered any looming questions about his shoulder, producing a touchdown and two field goals on five drives, with another cut short by a Kyle Rudolph fumble in San Diego territory. Rudolph and Stefon Diggs tied for the team lead at 5 targets, with the former catching three passes for 56 yards and a touchdown, and the latter adding five receptions for 71 yards. Bridgewater also added two carries for 21 yards in what will likely be his final appearance of an impressive preseason. He missed Minnesota's second exhibition, but did complete six of seven passes for for 92 yards and a touchdown in the opener. Bridgewater had five completions of 20+ yards on just 23 preseason pass attempts.
Teddy WilliamsDB CAR (7) 3 hours ago
Williams (groin) returned to practice on Sunday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Williams has been sidelined for more than a week now with a groin injury, but appears to be back to full strength and ready to return to the field. He's slated to be a depth option at cornerback during the upcoming season and should get his last preseason opportunity to prove his worth during the Panthers' finale versus the Steelers on Sept. 1.
Matt PraterK DET (10) 3 hours ago
Prater converted 2-of-3 field goal attempts Saturday during the Lions' preseason loss to the Ravens.
Prater's lone blemish was a 53-yard attempt that pegged the right upright, but he otherwise converted a 28-yarder as well as a 60-yarder as time expired in the first half. Though facing heat from undrafted rookie Devon Bell, who converted one of his two attempts on Saturday, Prater has displayed significantly superior leg strength and appears poised to handle Detroit's kicking duties yet again during the 2016 campaign.
Theo RiddickRB DET (10) 4 hours ago
Riddick gained 35 yards on three carries and secured one of two targets for seven yards during the Lions' third preseason game Saturday against the Ravens.
Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) received the start, but only lasted two series before getting pulled in favor of Riddick. However, Riddick was largely held in check by the Ravens' first-string defense as the majority of his yardage came on just one 34-yard scamper. Overall, though, Riddick remained heavily involved in Detroit's passing game and appears poised to resume his role as the Lions' pass-catching specialist out of the backfield in 2016.
PKenny ClarkDL GB (4) 4 hours ago
Clark (back) described his injury as "tightness" and insists he'll be ready for the Packers' regular season opener, Michael Cohen of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Clark injured his back during Tuesday's practice and was unable to participate in Friday's preseason matchup with the 49ers. However, he claims the injury is just tightness, so he expects to be healthy prior to the start of the regular season. The team will likely play it safe with their recent first-round draft pick and could hold him out of Thursday's preseason finale versus the Chiefs.
Matthew StaffordQB DET (10) 4 hours ago
Stafford completed 14-of-23 passes for 95 yards and an interception Saturday during the Lions' 30-9 preseason loss to the Ravens.
Stafford played the entire first half, but the Lions still struggled as a whole, failing to breach the goal line and gaining just 226 yards of total offense (compared to 363 for the Ravens). Now, through three preseason games with Stafford at the helm, Detroit is yet to score a touchdown and has converted just 3-of-4 field goal attempts while turning the ball over twice. Improved play along the offensive line could go a long way towards correcting their problematic offensive miscues, but if the preseason is any indication, Detroit could be in store for a rough transitional phase during the beginning of the team's first season post-Calvin Johnson.
QBranden OliverRB SD (11) 4 hours ago
Oliver was carted off the field during Sunday's preseason game against the Vikings with what appeared to be a right leg injury.
At first glance, this doesn't look good for Oliver, who entered the game as the team's No. 3 back behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead. If he's forced to miss time, Dreamius Smith and Kenneth Farrow are next up on the team's depth chart, though with NFL cut-downs looming, there figures to be some other options for the Chargers to consider.
Jeremy KerleyWR SF (8) 4 hours ago
The Lions have agreed to trade Kerley to the 49ers for offensive lineman Brandon Thomas, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
After emerging as an odd man out in the Detroit wideout corps, Kerley brings added slot depth and experience to the 49ers' pass-catching unit. While his path to fantasy relevance is not immediate, Kerley -- who caught 16 passes for 152 yards and two TDs for the Jets in 2015 -- should be able to crack San Francisco's 53-man roster.
QAntone ExumDB MIN (6) 4 hours ago
Exum left Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers with a leg injury and is set to have an X-Ray performed.
Exum appeared to have injured his leg during a kickoff return and was eventually carted off the field to the team's locker room. The severity of the injury remains unclear at this point in time, but we should have a better indication of the specifics once the results of his X-Ray have been released. Exum is expected to start the season as a depth option at safety.
