Cash left Friday's matchup with the Patriots to be evaluated for a concussion, Max Henson of CarolinaPanthers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cash currently projects as the third weakside linebacker onthe team's depth chart. He will unlikely return to action until all of his symptoms have passed.

Chris Hogan
WR NE (9)
2 hours ago

Hogan caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Used all over the formation and on a variety of routes, Hogan was heavily targeted by Jimmy Garoppolo early in the game, and then caught a 33-yard touchdown from Tom Brady later on. Hogan also impressed in his other appearance this preseason, catching four passes for 53 yards on five targets last week against the Bears. While the exact nature of his role remains unclear, Hogan has a real shot to emerge as the No. 3 option in New England's passing game, behind only Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola (ankle/knee). Aaron Dobson also impressed in Friday's game, but Hogan is still the clear favorite to start across from Edelman on the outside, with the potential to work from the slot in three-wide sets.

PCardale Jones
QB BUF (10)
2 hours ago

Jones (shoulder) did not suit up for Friday's preseason game against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming he can get back to practice soon, Jones will enter the season as the team's No. 3 quarterback. EJ Manuel saw extra action in Friday's game with Jones sitting out.

SUSTom Brady
QB NE (9)
2 hours ago

Brady (suspension) completed three of nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Jimmy Garoppolo started and played the first three drives, before giving way to Brady for the next four series. Brady made a few beautiful throws, including a 33-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan, but he also got quite lucky on an easy dropped interception. Brady is unlikely to play in the Patriots' final exhibition, which means his next game action will come Week 5 in Cleveland, after he serves a four-game suspension.

DL PIT (8)

Heyward will not return to Friday's matchup with the Saints due to a right ankle injury.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of the starting defensive end's injury is currently unknown. Expect an update on his status when the team releases more information regarding the nature of his injury.

QBryce Treggs
WR SF (8)
2 hours ago

Treggs (knee) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Treggs is currently considered week-to-week due to a sprained MCL, thus rendering this inactive unsurprising. He is currently competing to make the team's final roster.

QDeAndre Smelter
WR SF (8)
2 hours ago

Smelter (hamstring) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Smelter was held out of the previous preseason contest as well. It is unsurprising that he is not playing, as the hamstring injury does appear to be relatively serious. Smelter currently projects to be the fifth receiver on the team's depth chart, so he is in a competition to make the final roster.

QMorgan Burnett
DB GB (4)
2 hours ago

Burnett (back) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett missed the previous preseason contest as well. There is no indication from the team that his in danger of missing Week 1, but the back issue does appear to be lingering a bit. The team may also be exercising caution with their veteran safety.

PMitchell Henry
TE GB (4)
2 hours ago

Henry (finger) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the 49ers,

EDGE Analysis

Henry suffered a broken finger in Week 2 of the preseason. It appears the injury is serious enough to keep him out of action Friday. He currently projects as the fifth tight end on the team's depth chart, so he figures to be a long shot to make the final roster.

Antonio Brown
WR PIT (8)
2 hours ago

Brown caught four passes for 87 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Brown and Ben Roethlisberger played for the first time all preseason, leading the Steelers to 14 points on their first two drives. The second series was capped off by a perfect deep ball from Roethlisberger to Brown, who then outraced the defense for a 57-yard touchdown. With Le'Veon Bell (suspension) out for the first three weeks and Ladarius Green (ankle) perhaps joining him, Brown could be even busier than usual during the early part of the season, playing on a Martavis Bryant-less Pittsburgh offense.
