9/4/2015 Sio Moore, Oak, LB
The Indianapolis Colts acquired Moore from the Oakland Raiders on Friday for a late-round draft pick next year.

Analysis: Moore had 140 tackles and 7 1/2 sacks in 26 games in two seasons with Oakland. Last season, he started all 11 games he played and had 90 tackles and three sacks.
9/4/2015 T.J. Yates, Atl, QB
The Atlanta Falcons have released Yates.

Analysis: Yates was Matt Ryan's top backup in 2014.
9/3/2015 Kyle Brindza, TB, K
Brindza, acquired from Detroit in a trade this week, may have clinched a job by making field goals of 57 and 55 yards for Tampa Bay. Connor Barth had a 50-yard try blocked.

Analysis: Brindza has the stronger leg of the two.
9/3/2015 Corey Grant, Jax, RB
Grant, a rookie out of Auburn, carried five times for 74 yards. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder appeared to lock up a job as a reserve back for Jacksonville on the strength of a dazzling 40-yard touchdown run in the second quarter Thursday.

Analysis: "You saw his speed right there: legit fast," coach Gus Bradley said.
9/3/2015 Dan Carpenter, Buf, K
Carpenter's leg has become somewhat of a concern for the Bills.

Analysis: He made 90-plus percent of his field goals the previous two years with Buffalo, but the veteran of seven NFL seasons is struggling to find his form this preseason. Carpenter hit the right upright on a 40-yard field goal with a chance to break a 10-all tie in the third quarter Thursday.
9/3/2015 Zach Zenner, Det, RB
Zenner, fighting for a roster spot, ran for a go-ahead, 3-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter and the Detroit Lions held on to beat the Buffalo Bills 17-10 Thursday night.

Analysis: One of the better stories of the preseason, Zenner might have a chance to stick with the Lions but wouldn't have any immediate fantasy value if he does.
9/3/2015 Jason Myers, Jax, K
Myers kicked a 47-yard field goal with 3:32 left in his debut as Jacksonville's starter, and the Jaguars beat the Washington Redskins 17-16 on Thursday night.

Analysis: Myers replaced Josh Scobee, who was traded to Pittsburgh on Monday. Myers - a former Arena League player who has never kicked in an NFL game - also missed a 56-yarder.
9/3/2015 Vick Ballard, Ind, RB
Ballard appeared to hurt his right hamstring Thursday.

Analysis: The former starter currently has not fantasy value.
9/3/2015 Daniel Herron, Ind, RB
Herron headed to the locker room midway through the second quarter Thursday with an undisclosed shoulder injury.

Analysis: Depending on his health, Herron could be a solid handcuff option to Frank Gore. Continue to monitor his progress.
9/3/2015 Tom Obarski, Cin, K
The rookie from Concordia-St. Paul, a small school in Minnesota, made a 28-yard field goal with 2:49 to go Thursday night, and the Bengals defense kept Indianapolis out of the end zone to hold on for a 9-6 victory in the preseason finale.

Analysis: Now he'll wait anxiously to see if he's done enough to give veteran Mike Nugent the boot.
9/3/2015 Brett Hundley, GB, QB
Hundley threw for four scores in a 38-10 win Thursday night over winless New Orleans.

Analysis: A fifth-round draft pick out of UCLA, Hundley flashed promise for a second straight game in showing zip on his passes while moving the offense effectively. He was 16 of 23 for 236 yards. Hundley appears ticketed to be the third-string quarterback in Green Bay behind NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and Scott Tolzien.
9/3/2015 Tevin Coleman, Atl, RB
Coleman ran for 56 yards on eight carries in Thursday's preseason finale.

Analysis: The rookie could open the season as the starter. He would have some solid fantasy value if that's the case.
9/3/2015 Tim Tebow, Phi, QB
Tebow threw two touchdown passes and an interception in his final opportunity to make Philadelphia's roster, and the Eagles fell to the New York Jets 24-18 on Thursday night.

Analysis: Tebow, competing with Matt Barkley for the No. 3 quarterback job, flashed some of the playmaking and inconsistency that have made him so polarizing. He finished 11 of 17 for 189 yards, and added 32 yards on four rushes.
9/3/2015 Sean Renfree, Atl, QB
Renfree threw a touchdown pass and led another scoring drive to overshadow the preseason debut of Rex Grossman as the Atlanta Falcons held off the Baltimore Ravens 20-19 on Thursday night in their final preseason game.

Analysis: Renfree made the most of his final bid to open the season as Matt Ryan's backup. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 75 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Carlton Mitchell.
9/3/2015 Tom Brady, NE, QB
Brady is not in uniform for the New England Patriots' final preseason game, against the New York Giants.

Analysis: Hours after a federal judge's decision to overturn Brady's four-game suspension handed down by the NFL in the "Deflategate" scandal, Brady is not on the sideline for the game. Several fans chanted "BRADY, BRADY," when the team came out of the locker room into the bowl of the stadium, but the quarterback was nowhere to be seen.
9/3/2015 Jamison Crowder, Was, WR
The NFL says it has concluded its investigation into Crowder in connection to a domestic violence episode, and he will not face discipline from the league.

Analysis: Crowder was a fourth-round draft pick out of Duke. In June, Crowder's Instagram feed briefly included photographs of a woman who said she was abused, and the Redskins and NFL said then that they were looking into the matter.
9/3/2015 DeVante Parker, Mia, WR
Parker made his exhibition season debut after recovering from foot surgery. He played briefly, was targeted three times and caught one pass for 11 yards for Miami (1-3).

Analysis: The receiver from Louisville took part in practice Monday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left foot in June, and it had been uncertain whether he would be available for the season opener next week.
9/3/2015 Jason Pierre-Paul, NYG, DE
It has been confirmed that the embattled Pierre-Paul will re-join the Giants next week by owner John Mara.

Analysis: Pierre-Paul foolishly hurt his right index finger during some July 4 fireworks tomfoolery. He has yet to meet with the club, though Mara said before the Giants' win over the Super Bowl champion Patriots on Thursday that the star defensive end will report to the Giants next week.
9/3/2015 Trindon Holliday, Oak, WR
Holliday was cut by Oakland.

Analysis: Holliday was signed by the Raiders in June.
9/3/2015 T.J. Ward, Den, S
Ward has been suspended for the first game of the 2015 regular season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Analysis: The Broncos say that Ward's suspension stems from misdemeanor charges dating back to an incident from May 2014. Those charges were later dropped.
