James Ihedigbo DB DET 18 Hrs
Ihedigbo will not play Friday against the Jaguars.
It's not clear why he won't suit up for the Lions' third preseason game, but it's likely nothing serious, as there was no report of Ihedigbo being injured during the week.
Kyle Van Noy LB DET 18 Hrs
Van Noy will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Jaguars.
It's not clear why Van Noy is being held out of the Lions' third preseason game, but hopefully the situation will become more clear next week. He is not expected to start in the Lions' 4-3 scheme.
Ziggy Ansah DL DET 18 Hrs
Ansah (shoulder) will play Friday against the Jaguars.
This will mark his preseason debut, after missing seven-plus months of offseason training due to a shoulder injury. He will slot in among the starters on a vaunted defensive line.
Sammy Watkins WR BUF 18 Hrs2 Comments
Watkins (ribs) was limited for a third straight day Thursday and is questionable for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, BuffaloBills.com reports.
As a rookie it would be good for Watkins to see action in what's normally the most important preseason game, but the Bills certainly won't push it. We still feel pretty good about his Week 1 status, though the more time Watkins misses the more comfortable EJ Manuel gets with his other receivers.
Derek Carr QB OAK 18 Hrs
Carr (concussion/ribs) is in uniform and was not on the list of players who were unavailable to play in Friday's preseason game against Green Bay, the Contra Costa Times' Steve Corkran reports.
It was originally reported that Carr would not play Friday, which may still be the case, but considering the Raiders didn't rule him out prior the third preseason game leaves the door open for Carr to see some action Friday.
Sebastian Janikowski K OAK 18 Hrs
Janikowski was scratched Friday due to a right quad injury, CSN California's Scott Bair reports.
This is the first we've heard of Janikowski dealing with a quad injury, and it's unclear how serious it is. We should know more about his status next week, but for now it doesn't seem like anything that would put his status for Week 1 in jeopardy.
Jerod Mayo LB NE 18 Hrs
Mayo is dressed for Friday's preseason game, but will be a game-time decision, ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reports.
It's unclear what is ailing Mayo, but he was limited this week in practice. Odds are it's not a very serious injury, as there's a chance he'll play Friday.
Casey Hayward DB GB 18 Hrs
Hayward (hamstring) will not play in Friday's preseason game, Fox Sports Wisconsin's Paul Imig reports.
He did not practice Thursday after exiting early from Wednesday's session, and the fact that he won't play Friday after what was labeled as a maintenance day Thursday, is certainly cause for concern. Hayward's talent has never been in question since he was drafted by Green Bay in 2012, but he was a non-factor last season due to injuries, and it would be a major hit to the Packers' secondary if he was limited again in 2014. Hopefully we'll see some progress in his status during next week's practices.
Jeff Cumberland TE NYJ 19 Hrs
Cumberland (Achilles) will not play in Friday's preseason game, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.
He has now been dealing with the sore Achilles for almost two weeks, and while the injury isn't considered serious, it's enough to keep him out of action Friday. Jace Amaro should get plenty of looks at tight end during the Jets' third preseason game.
Odell Beckham WR NYG 19 Hrs
Beckham (hamstring) was seen catching passes and punts during pregame warmups Friday, NJ.com's Jordan Raanan reports.
This is more than he's done during the past few days of practice, so it definitely represents progress. Hopefully he'll be able to up his level of participation in practice next week, as it's been a somewhat lost preseason so far for the rookie receiver. When he was drafted many speculated that he could become the Giants' No. 2 receiver, but his injuries have given that distinction to Rueben Randle by default.
