8/28/2015 Da'Norris Searcy, Ten, S
Searcy hurt his knee in the first quarter of Friday's preseason game against Kansas City.

Analysis: Searcy is questionable to return.
8/28/2015 Albert Wilson, KC, WR
Wilson hurt his shoulder on the first drive of Friday's preseason game against Tennessee.

Analysis: There are few details on the severity of the injury.
8/28/2015 R.J. Dill, Dal, T
The NFL has suspended Dill for four games for performance-enhancing drugs.

Analysis: The Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman said he failed a drug test in May after undergoing testosterone replacement therapy while still a free agent. He added that the league denied his request for a therapeutic use exemption. The Cowboys signed Dill in January, and he has never appeared in an NFL game.
8/28/2015 Donald Thomas, Ind, G
The Colts activated Thomas from the active/physically unable to perform list.

Analysis: Thomas is making his way back from twice tearing his quadriceps. The 29-year-old last played in an NFL game Week 2 of the 2013 season.
8/28/2015 Justin Hunter, Ten, WR
Hunter's felony charge of malicious wounding has been reduced to a misdemeanor count of assault and battery by a Virginia court.

Analysis: Hunter was arrested July 3 following an altercation at a nightclub in Virginia Beach. The 2013 second-round pick will have his case go to trial on the lesser charge Tuesday.
8/28/2015 Solomon Patton, Den, WR
Patton was waived by the Broncos Friday.

Analysis: The second-year wideout hurt his chances of making the team as a return specialist by fumbling a punt in the preseason opener. The Broncos claimed Patton off waivers from Tampa Bay in May.
8/27/2015 Connor Barth, TB, K
Barth is back with Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Barth set a Buccaneers mark for accuracy by making 84.3 percent of his field goal attempts from 2009-12. He sat out the 2013 season with a torn Achilles and lost his job. Barth was released by Denver this week and quickly agreed to a two-year, $2.75 million deal with Tampa. He'll compete with Patrick Murray for the rest of the preseason.
8/27/2015 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Bryant has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, according to multiple reports.

Analysis: If the suspension is upheld, Bryant will miss key games against New England and division-rival Baltimore before being eligible to return Week 5. Rookie Sammie Coates and Markus Wheaton should receive more targets in the absence of Bryant, who had eight touchdowns on only 26 catches as a rookie last season.
8/27/2015 Landon Collins, NYG, S
Collins is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the New York Jets.

Analysis: The New York Giants safety sat out last weekend's game against Jacksonville after spraining his knee in the preseason opener.
8/27/2015 Weston Richburg, NYG, G
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the tendinitis in Richburg's left knee is showing improvement.

Analysis: It's unclear if the center will play in Saturday's preseason game against the New York Jets after missing two days of practice. Richburg's backup, Dallas Reynolds, could also sit out.
8/27/2015 Marshall Newhouse, NYG, T
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Newhouse did not injure his left ankle in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: The starting right tackle is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the New York Jets.
8/27/2015 Letroy Guion, GB, DT
The NFL has suspended Guion for three games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Analysis: The Green Bay defensive tackle was arrested in Florida on Feb. 3 on felony charges of drug and firearm possession. Police found three-quarters of a pound of marijuana, a bag containing around $190,000 and a handgun during a traffic stop. Guion started every game for the first time last season, logging a career-best 32 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks. He's eligible to return Sept. 29.
8/27/2015 Eugene Monroe, Bal, T
Monroe will not play in Saturday's preseason game against Washington due to a bruised forearm.

Analysis: Monroe is expected to be fine for the Sept. 13 season opener at Denver.
8/27/2015 Russell Wilson, Sea, QB
Wilson said Thursday he did not suffer a concussion in last season's NFC championship game.

Analysis: An article in Rolling Stone seemed to indicate Wilson suffered an injury in the first half following a vicious hit from Green Bay's Clay Matthews. He stayed in the game and led Seattle to a 28-22 overtime win. In the article, Wilson raves about a product called Reliant Recovery Water of which he is an investor. "I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine. It was the water."
8/27/2015 Will Hill III, Bal, S
Hill has signed a two-year extension with the Ravens.

Analysis: The impending free agent started Baltimore's final eight games last season and recorded 42 tackles and an interception over 10 contests in 2014. Hill was suspended the first six games for a substance abuse infraction that prompted his release from the Giants.
8/27/2015 Ahmad Brooks, SF, LB
San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said Brooks has been excused from the team but is staying on the roster for now. Baalke called the situation "day to day."

Analysis: Brooks was sent home from Denver on Thursday after a grand jury in Santa Clara County charged him with misdemeanor sexual battery. The 49ers are holding a joint practice with the Broncos before Saturday night's preseason game.
8/27/2015 EJ Manuel, Buf, QB
Manuel will start Saturday's preseason game against Pittsburgh.

Analysis: A surprising call by Rex Ryan, as Manuel had been the third quarterback in each of the first two games. It appears the competition between Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor for the starting job is far from being decided.
8/27/2015 Ryan Mallett, Hou, QB
Mallett did not attend Thursday's practice for what coach Bill O'Brien termed a personal issue.

Analysis: O'Brien did not further elaborate on Mallett's absence but did say he expects him to return Friday. Mallett was vocal with his unhappiness over being named the backup to Brian Hoyer earlier in the week.
8/27/2015 Ryan Seymour, Cle, T
Seymour was waived by the Browns Thursday.

Analysis: The reserve center was recently suspended for the season's first four games for a PED violation.
8/27/2015 Pat Devlin, Cle, QB
The Browns signed Devlin Thursday.

Analysis: Cleveland needed another healthy arm at quarterback with Johnny Manziel currently shut down with a sore elbow. Devlin spent 2011-13 with Miami but never got into a game and was waived by Chicago in June.
