PJulio JonesWR ATL (11) 8 hours ago
Jones is questionable to return to Thursday's matchup with the Dolphins due to an ankle injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Considering the circumstances it is unlikely the Falcons will allow their star receiver to take the field again if he is dealing with an ankle issue. Jones had recorded one catch for 17 yards on two targets prior to leaving the game. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but expect more clarity on his status when more information is made available.
PNdamukong SuhDL MIA (8) 8 hours ago
Suh left Thursday's game against the Falcons after injuring his ankle, he's considered questionable to return, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Though he's officially listed as questionable, it would be very surprising if Suh returned to Thursday's game. He's one of the team's best defensive players and it's not worth playing him through injury in an exhibition game. Chris Jones figures to see some extra snaps with Suh coming out a bit early.
A.J. GreenWR CIN (9) 9 hours ago
Green said that he is prepared to miss a game should his first child be born on a game day, Nunzio Ingrassia of Fox Sports reports.
Green's wife is due to give birth to their first child on Friday, September 30th, the day after Cincinnati's Week 4 matchup with the Dolphins. While it's not likely he ends up missing a game, it's something for owners should keep in the back of their mind, as Green is one of the best receivers in the NFL and a missed game would impact season long and weekly fantasy players alike.
Knile DavisRB KC (5) 9 hours ago
Davis is in danger of not making the final 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Once Jamal Charles (knee) returns to full health, Davis will assume the fourth spot on the Chiefs death chart, leaving him on the bubble of making the Week 1 roster. However the 24-year-old has value in the kick return game, as he totaled 799 kick return yards last season along with one touchdown in the AFC Wild Card win over the Texans. Davis, who totaled a career-worst 72 yards on the ground last season, could be an attractive pickup for another team should the Chiefs decide to part ways.
PMatt BryantK ATL (11) 10 hours ago
Bryant will not play in Thursday's preseason matchup with Miami for undisclosed reasons.
Bryant is coming off of an injury shortened 2015 that saw him connect on just 14-of-18 field goals. Entering his age-40 season, the veteran kicker is competing with Shayne Graham, who replaced Bryant for the final six games of the season last year, for the kicker spot. Bryant's absence will give Graham a few extra in game reps in Thursday's game.
QMatt MooreQB MIA (8) 10 hours ago
Moore (concussion) will not play in Thursday's preseason tilt with Atlanta, the team's official site reports.
Moore suffered a concussion back in the Dolphins second preseason matchup against the Cowboys. It doesn't come as much of a surprise that the 32-year-old won't play considering he did not partake in practice throughout the week leading up to Thursday. Miami remains optimistic that Moore will be ready for Week 1, but in the meantime, Brandon Doughty and Zac Dysert will serve as the primary backups to Ryan Tannehill during his absence.
PTerron WardRB ATL (11) 10 hours ago
Ward (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.
Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.
PCameron WakeDL MIA (8) 10 hours ago
Wake (Achilles) will play in Thursday's preseason exhibition with Atlanta, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
It was reported earlier in the week that the four-time pro bowler would be a game-time decision for Thursday's game. Ultimately, it appears Miami believes Wake is healthy enough to get some work in the preseason prior to Week 1. Although Wake is unlikely to play an extended amount of snaps, it will be nice to see how he holds up in team's dress rehearsal game.
PJalen RichardRB OAK (10) 10 hours ago
Richard (knee) is expected to play and see time with the starting offense in the Raiders' third preseason game Saturday against the Titans, Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Richard flashed during the onset of training camp, but had been slowed by a knee injury until returning to practice earlier this week. However, none of Taiwan Jones, DeAndre Washington nor George Atkinson have laid claim to the No. 2 or No. 3 jobs yet.
But, both Jones and Washington also figure to run with the starters on Saturday as well, setting up this preseason tilt as one of the final opportunities for each in the Raiders' RB corps to prove their worth in advance of the regular season.
PRobert NkemdicheDL ARI (9) 10 hours ago
Head coach Bruce Arians told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com on Thursday that Nkemdiche (ankle) put in a "good day" at Wednesday's practice. "I thought the 1-on-1s were good," Arians said. "I thought the team periods, he was still a little bit high at times. He's obviously got pass-rush ability."
Contained to individual drills Monday, Nkemdiche was reticent to practice Wednesday due to lingering soreness in his ankle, but upon some prodding from Arians, the rookie defensive lineman gutted out individual and seemingly even some team work. Nkemdiche has time to prove his health in advance of Sunday's exhibition at Houston, but a DNP may be the prudent approach if there's any question surrounding the ankle.
