IRKeith MarshallRB WAS (9) 2 hours ago
Marshall (elbow) was placed on injured-reserve on Tuesday.
Marshall is only expected to be sidelined for three weeks but by placing him on IR the Redskins don't have to face the option of releasing him. The rookie has on the bubble for making the final 53-man roster as he has been in tight competition with Rob Kelley for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart all season. Many believed Kelley had the edge heading into the final week of the preseason, but sending Marshall to IR saves the Redskins from making that tough decision. When he returns to full health, Marshall could be the perfect candidate to return from the IR mid-season as each team is allowed to remove a player from injured-reserve after Week 6.
QSeantrel Henderson BUF (10) 2 hours ago
Henderson missed practice for a second straight day Tuesday due to an undisclosed medical issue, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Hopefully this is unrelated to the Crohn's disease issues that Henderson suffered through last season into the offseason. The tackle has almost no chance to serve as a starter come Week 1, while the Bills simply hope they can get him back on track to where he was before the illness.
DTeddy BridgewaterQB MIN (6) 2 hours ago
Addressing the media Tuesday, coach Mike Zimmer relayed that Bridgewater has suffered a significant knee injury.
The full extent of the injury Bridgewater suffered at practice Tuesday has yet to be determined, but it looks like he will miss extended time. The QB is currently undergoing an MRI, after which there should be added clarity to the situation. Next up on the Vikings' QB depth chart are veteran signal-caller Shaun Hill and rookie Joel Stave.
Shaun HillQB MIN (6) 2 hours ago
Hill may begin the season as Minnesota's starting quarterback with Teddy Bridgewater suffering a significant knee injury in Wednesday's practice.
It sounds like Bridgewater will miss significant playing time if not the season, which would put Hill in line to start Week 1 against Tennessee. Minnesota's offense would likely be even more conservative with Hill, but Hill has looked good during the preseason and shouldn't be rattled by the assignment with 34 career starts. The Vikings will likely need to sign a veteran backup quarterback before the regular season.

QReggie DiggsWR WAS (9) 2 hours ago
Diggs (knee) was released by Washington on Tuesday.
Diggs failed to play in any preseason games as he nursed a lingering knee injury. With more depth at receiver than in past years, Washington decided to part ways with the undrafted rookie as they trim their roster down to 75.
Lerentee McCrayLB GB (4) 2 hours ago
McCray was traded from the Packers to the Bills on Tuesday in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice in 2018, BuffaloBills.com reports.

QJohn BrownWR ARI (9) 2 hours ago
Head coach Bruce Arians said Brown (concussion) has been medically cleared to play, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports.
While Brown has reportedly gotten the go-ahead from team doctors, head coach Bruce Arians said the wideout's availability is still to be determined. If Brown did indeed clear the NFL's concussion protocol, it must have happened at some point Tuesday, as Arians said Monday that Brown was still bothered by headaches. Barring any late setbacks, Brown should plenty of have time to prepare for Week 1 against the Patriots, despite missing the entire preseason. If he isn't back at practice next week, then it will be time for owners to worry.
