QKeanu NealDB ATL (11) 9 hours ago
Neal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.
Paul RichardsonWR SEA (5) 9 hours ago
Richardson secured two of three targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys.
The third-year receiver made an impressive grab on a perfectly-timed touch pass from Russell Wilson for a second-quarter, nine-yard touchdown. It was a solid effort for Richardson overall after not being targeted a week prior against the Vikings. He looks firmly entrenched as the fourth receiver heading into the 2016 campaign, after only having tallied a single catch all of last season.
Tyler LockettWR SEA (5) 9 hours ago
Lockett secured all three targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys.
The second-year speedster turned in an encouraging performance, which included a touchdown grab from Russell Wilson on a play where Lockett alertly continued to work his way free over an extended period. With his quarterback eluding multiple rushers and eventually rolling right, Lockett was able to work his way open just enough in the right corner of the end zone to haul in Wilson's well-placed throw. The Kansas State product looks primed for a breakout sophomore campaign after making 51 grabs for 664 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie 2015 season, along with making a significant impact in the return game.
PTony RomoQB DAL (7) 9 hours ago
The back issue that forced Romo out of Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks is not viewed as anything serious, ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, Romo even lobbied to return to Thursday's contest and did not require X-rays, though the Cowboys are said to be mulling whether or not the QB might require an MRI, or further testing. Any time a player with Romo's injury history -- which includes previous back procedures -- goes down reaching his lower back, as he did Thursday, there is going to be concern. However, in this case, owner and GM Jerry Jones indicated that Romo's back soreness would not prevent him from being ready for Week 1. There's a pretty good chance the Cowboys will play it safe with Romo in the team's Sept. 1 preseason finale, with the team set to go into the regular season backing up their veteran franchise QB with impressive rookie Dak Prescott and third-stringer Jameill Showers.
Eric BerryDB KC (5) 9 hours ago
Berry plans to end his current holdout and return to the team Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Berry hasn't been involved throughout the entirety of training camp thus far as he elected not to sign his $10.8 million franchise tender for an extended period of time. Given he intends to return Sunday, his Week 1 status should be solidified without question, but it's not fully clear at this point if he'll get any reps during the team's final preseason game in early September. The relatively quiet nature of Berry's holdout figures to have little impact on his relationship with the rest of the team moving forward.
C.J. ProsiseRB SEA (5) 10 hours ago
Prosise (hamstring) gained 23 yards on four carries in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys.
With Thomas Rawls sitting out the contest, Prosise was second only in carries to Christine Michael on the night. After missing the first two preseason games-- not to mention multiple weeks of practice-- with a hamstring strain, the outing was an important one for Prosise, whose pass-catching skills are expected to make him an effective third-down option in his rookie season. Ironically, Prosise was shut out in the passing game Thursday, but did turn in a solid ground performance. Considering the amount of time he's missed, the 2016 third-round pick should see extended action in Seattle's final preseason contest.
Russell WilsonQB SEA (5) 10 hours ago
Wilson completed 16 of 21 passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys. He also gained two yards on three carries and fumbled once.
The Pro Bowler looked to be in mid-season form throughout his time on the field, impressively connecting with multiple receivers and displaying his trademark elusiveness in the pocket. Wilson's pair of touchdowns were notable in their own right, hitting Paul Richardson on a perfect touch pass for his first score and then buying considerable time by scrambling and hitting Tyler Lockett in the right corner of the end zone to hit paydirt a second time. The fifth-year pro looks set to build on what was a stellar 4,024-yard, 34-touchdown 2015 campaign in the coming season.
Rodney SmithWR DAL (7) 10 hours ago
Smith secured three of four targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks.
The third-year FSU product hauled in a tough six-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter from the arm of Jameill Showers, capping a six-play, 74-yard drive. After only tallying one catch in his first two preseason games, Thursday's production was pivotal in Smith's case for a final roster spot. However, after having yet to record a regular-season reception in his first two seasons and solid competition for the remaining receiver jobs, Smith appears to face an uphill battle to survive final cuts heading into the final exhibition contest.
PTerrance WilliamsWR DAL (7) 10 hours ago
Williams (hand) secured one of two targets for 11 yards in Thursday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks. The team's official site also reports that he received X-rays on his hand after the game that came up negative.
The Cowboys No. 2 receiver had a chance for a bigger night, but was unable to haul in a second-quarter deep throw from Dak Prescott in the red zone. With respect to his injury, Williams reported that the hand, which he'd broken at Baylor during his sophomore season, had originally "flared up" on him during practice last week. Despite the negative results on the X-rays, Williams reported some discomfort, but it's currently unknown whether it's sufficient to keep him out of any practices this coming weekend.
Jason WittenTE DAL (7) 10 hours ago
Witten secured his only target for a 17-yard touchdown in Thursday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks.
The ageless tight end bailed out Dak Prescott on an underthrow by stealing the ball from K.J. Wright for a first-quarter touchdown. Although he didn't get any other looks on the night, there is no doubt that Witten is set to once again serve as one of Tony Romo's top targets in 2016.
