Knile DavisRB KC (5) 2 hours ago
Davis carried the ball five times for just 14 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears.
Also notable is the fact that he didn't return kicks, with all signs now pointing to him missing the 53-man roster. Given the talent he's displayed in the past, it's possible another club will give him a shot if Davis indeed gets cut.
Mark SanchezQB DEN (11) 3 hours ago
Sanchez did not play in Saturday's preseason game as Trevor Siemian appears to have secured the starting quarterback job, Denver ABC 7 reports.
After a poor preseason, it looks all but certain that Sanchez will be cut and not make the final roster. Denver will save $3.5 million in salary cap space and not lose a 7th-round draft pick if they cut Sanchez.
QJason Spriggs GB (4) 4 hours ago
Spriggs aggravated a finger injury during Friday's preseason win at San Francisco, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I mashed my finger up in practice," Spriggs said. "I needed a couple of stitches. I started the game with just a smaller cast on, but I tweaked it at the beginning of the game. The smaller cast wasn't working well, so we went with the bigger one."
Fortunately, Spriggs is merely a luxury behind such a formidable offensive line. Plucked by the Packers in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, he ideally won't see the field this season, barring a repeat of the barrage of injuries along the O-line from 2015.
QMakinton DorleantDB GB (4) 4 hours ago
Dorleant pulled his hamstring during Friday's preseason victory in San Francisco, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Dorleant already missed two weeks of training camp due to a hamstring injury, but strong play in the past two exhibitions put him in the running for one of the reserve spots in the secondary. With another ailment in tow, the opportunity could be wiped away if he misses another stretch of practices.
Gerald McCoyDL TB (6) 4 hours ago
McCoy logged two tackles (one solo) and a half-sack in Friday's 30-13 preseason victory over the Browns.
The Pro Bowl tackle got in on the fun on a night when the Bucs defense tallied a whopping eight sacks overall. McCoy dealt with an ankle injury several days ago but appeared unencumbered Friday, serving as an active presence and drawing plenty of attention in the middle. He also combined with offseason acquistion Robert Ayers for a half-sack of Robert Griffin III, a hit which caused a fumble that the Bucs argued they'd recovered but that insatant replay apparently couldn't confirm. McCoy looks primed for another strong season anchoring Tampa's defensive line and figures to benefit from playing alongside the likes of Ayers and dynamic Noah Spence in certain personnel packages.
Jordan TodmanRB IND (10) 4 hours ago
Todman had three carries for two yards, but recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to the Eagles.
Todman looks behind both Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson in the competition to be Frank Gore's backup. He was the last of the backs to play in Saturday's game and didn't show much on the field. He may be in danger of not making the final 53-man roster.
QJay ElliottLB GB (4) 4 hours ago
Elliott injured his hamstring in Friday's preseason victory at San Francisco, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Elliott's standing behind Clay Matthews on the Packers' unofficial depth chart puts him on an intriguing position in the event the NFL punishes the All-Pro for his mention in the Al-Jazeera documentary The Dark Side. No matter the severity of the hamstring issue, the Packers could very well exercise caution with Elliott in advance of the regular season.
Josh FergusonRB IND (10) 4 hours ago
Ferguson gained just four yards on five carries but did have three receptions for 38 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Philadelphia.
Ferguson struggled to run the ball for a third consecutive preseason game as he has just a 0.7 YPC in the preseason. He's clearly behind Robert Turbin as the backup to Frank Gore. On the plus side, Ferguson was the third back used in the game and was productive as a receiver. While Turbin should begin the season as Gore's backup, Ferguson still has a chance to emerge with a third-down role or move up the depth chart later in the season.
QDonteea DyeWR TB (6) 4 hours ago
Dye was not targeted in the passing game but did return one kickoff for 21 yards before exiting Friday's 30-13 preseason victory over the Browns.
The second-year receiver was likely to receive extended work on kickoffs and the second-half offense Friday had he not gotten hurt, so the injury was certainly as untimely as it could be. Dye is in a battle with several receivers for a roster spot, with special teams likely to play a pivotal role in which ones survive final cuts. The severity of Dye's injury is yet to be officially reported and may not be known until Monday, given that the Bucs' next practice isn't until then.
Donte MoncriefWR IND (10) 4 hours ago
Moncrief led the team with eight targets, six catches and 58 receiving yards in Saturday's preseason contest versus the Eagles.
Moncrief averaged an underwhelming 9.7 yards per catch Saturday, but the offensive line failed to adequately protect the quarterbacks, which likely forced a number of quick, shorter throws. The takeaway is that Moncrief was very involved in the offense, and has looked spry of late as he works his way back to full strength following a toe injury. He could be in for a strong season after emerging to grab 64 passes for 733 yards and six touchdowns in 2015, despite the absence of Andrew Luck for much of the year.
