8/18/2017 George Fant, Sea, T
Fant has been taken off the field on the cart after appearing to suffer a significant right knee injury against Minnesota. Fant, the presumptive starter going into the regular season, was hurt midway through the second quarter of Friday's game against the Vikings. Fant was rolled into by teammate Justin Britt on a pass play and immediately fell to the turf in pain. The team training staff attended to Fant on the field and placed an air saround his leg.

Analysis: Fant took over at left tackle midway through last season and spent the offseason reshaping his body to be stronger going into this season. Earlier this week offensive line coach Tom Cable said Seattle was set on the left side of the offensive line with Fant at tackle and Luke Joeckel at guard.
8/17/2017 Rod Streater, Buf, WR
Streater was carted off the field with a foot injury with 14:08 remaining in regulation of Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Analysis: There was no immediate word on his condition.
8/17/2017 DeAndre Hopkins, Hou, WR
The Texans are maintaining a cautious approach with Hopkins, who hasn't practiced since getting hurting his hand during the Texans' preseason opener against the Panthers.

Analysis: The injury is not regarded as serious, but the Texans don't want to take any chances with the former Pro Bowler as they prepare for the season opener Sept. 10 vs. the Jags. "Look, the biggest thing with him is making sure that he feels 100 percent when he practices, making sure that when the season starts he's ready to go," coach Bill O'Brien said. "There's nothing really wrong with him. It's just more 'Hey, let's make sure this guy's ready to go on September 10."
8/17/2017 A.J. Green, Cin, WR
Some observers, including Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, believe Green is having the best training camp of his career.

Analysis: Green missed the final six games last season with a hamstring injury, but he's back to 100 percent and looking especially sharp in camp. "He's looked as good as he's ever looked to me," receivers coach James Urban told "He's in great shape physically. He's in a great spot mentally. He's lean, fast, strong. He works his tail off."
8/17/2017 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Newton didn't take part in the scrimmage situations during the first day of joint workouts with the Titans, but he was involved in some 7-and-7 drills when the teams gathered for the second of those workouts Thursday.

Analysis: While there has been progress shown as he comes back following offseason shoulder surgery, there continues to be an incomplete sample. The Panthers play their second preseason game Saturday when they take on the Titans in Nashville. The status of Newton remains unclear, but the odds of him playing appear slim.
8/17/2017 Josh Gordon, Cle, WR
The reinstatement of suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon is not on the immediate agenda of Roger Goodell, the commissioner announced Thursday.

Analysis: "(It's) not under active consideration to my knowledge, at least it hasn't gotten to my desk yet," Goodell said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The league denied Gordon's reinstatement petition on May 11, two months after the embattled 26-year-old wideout filed papers to have his indefinite suspension lifted. Goodell reinstated Gordon on a conditional basis last season, but the Pro Bowl receiver checked into the rehab facility in September and put his career on hold.
8/17/2017 Justin Britt, Sea, C
Britt agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension, multiple outlets reported on Thursday.

Analysis: The deal is worth $27 million with Britt collecting $13.25 million in the first year, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Britt started 16 games as a rookie at right tackle after being selected with a second-round pick in the 2014 draft. The 26-year-old was later shuffled to guard and then center, where he started 15 games a season ago.
8/17/2017 Thomas Rawls, Sea, RB
Rawls will sit out Friday's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Eddie Lacy was named the team's starter for Friday after Rawls was given the nod ahead of Lacy for last week's preseason opener against the Chargers. Rawls rushed two times for five yards while Lacy carried four times for 10 yards. It remains very unclear which back will get the bulk of the carries during the regular season, but Rawls appears to be a risk considering his injury history.
8/17/2017 Ryan Kelly, Ind, C
Kelly is expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery on a bone defect in his foot.

Analysis: Kelly started all 16 games last season, so this is another obstacle Andrew Luck and the offense will have to overcome early in 2017.
8/16/2017 Kenbrell Thompkins, NYJ, WR
The receiver-needy Jets have signed Thompkins.

Analysis: Thompkins returns to the Jets after playing seven games with them during the 2015 season. He was waived/injured by New York last September after a groin injury. With 70 career catches in stops with New England, Oakland and New York, Thompkins steps in as the Jets' most experienced wide receiver. The team lost projected No. 1 receiver Quincy Enunwa to a neck injury on Aug. 5.
8/16/2017 Tramaine Brock, Sea, CB
The Seahawks have signed Brock.

Analysis: Brock started 31 of 32 games over the past two seasons for the 49ers, but was released during the offseason after he was arrested and accused of hitting a woman he was dating. Brock was charged with felony domestic violence in June, but those charges were dismissed last week by the Santa Clara County district attorney's office after the office said there was insufficient evidence to proceed with the case because the accuser declined to cooperate.
8/16/2017 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell appointed Harold Henderson to hear Elliott's appeal, and the hearing is scheduled to take place on Aug. 29, according to NFL Network.

Analysis: The NFLPA on Tuesday officially appealed the six-game ban handed to Elliott, who was suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy after multiple domestic violence incidents. Henderson was the arbiter for the appeal hearings of Greg Hardy and Adrian Peterson. Henderson reduced Hardy's suspension for alleged domestic violence from 10 games to four in 2015 and upheld Peterson's indefinite suspension for child abuse in 2014.
8/15/2017 Laquon Treadwell, Min, WR
Treadwell returned to practice Tuesday after missing two weeks with a hamstring injury.

Analysis: The second-year receiver told reporters he hopes to play in the Vikings' second exhibition game at Seattle on Friday. Either way, Treadwell's availability for the regular season isn't in jeopardy unless he incurs a setback.
8/15/2017 Thomas Davis, Car, LB
The Carolina Panthers signed veteran linebacker Thomas Davis to a one-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

Analysis: The deal for Davis, a first-round draft pick of the Panthers in 2006, runs through the 2018 season. The Charlotte Observer, citing a source, said the one-year is worth $6.75 million, with $3 million of it guaranteed over the next two seasons. Davis, 34, registered a team-high 132 tackles in 2016 and became the franchise's all-time leader in that category with 1,086 tackles while earning his second straight Pro Bowl appearance.
8/15/2017 Mike James, Det, RB
James has been placed on season-ending injured reserve due to a concussion.

Analysis: Already being listed as out for the year with a concussion is certainly alarming, so it seems James' playing days could be over.
8/15/2017 Ryan Mathews, Phi, RB
Mathews was given a clean bill of health and medically cleared by the Eagles, coach Doug Pederson said on Tuesday.

Analysis: Mathews has missed the entire offseason while recovering from neck surgery. He sustained a herniated disk in his neck during a 24-19 win over the Giants on Dec. 22. However, it's possible the Eagles won't keep him because would be owed $4 million if he stayed on the team this season. He rushed 155 times for 661 yards and eight touchdowns in 13 games in 2016 for the Eagles, who signed LeGarrette Blount in the offseason.
8/15/2017 Tony Lippett, Mia, CB
Lippett tore his Achilles and will have season-ending surgery, coach Adam Gase said on Tuesday.

Analysis: Lippett, who sustained the injury during Monday's practice, made 13 starts last season and collected 67 tackles and a team-high four interceptions. The 25-year-old played in 75 percent of Miami's defensive snaps in 2016 and was expected to be a backup this season behind starters Byron Maxwell and Xavien Howard.
8/14/2017 Kenny Golladay, Det, WR
Golladay came into Sunday's preseason game against the Colts as a backup to starter Golden Tate, but finished with three catches for 53 yards and two touchdowns in his first debut.

Analysis: Golladay has done nothing but impress in camp so far and could be worth a late-round flyer if his play continues to flourish.
8/14/2017 Kasen Williams, Sea, WR
Williams had four catches for 119 yards in the Seahawks' preseason win over the Chargers on Sunday.

Analysis: Williams - whose NFL regular-season resume consists of one carry and one reception in 2015 - may be a long shot at making the roster, but with more efforts like this, he'll certainly make Pete Carroll think about it.
8/14/2017 Jordan Matthews, Buf, WR
Matthews has a chip fracture in his sternum and is listed as week to week.

Analysis: Matthews hurt his upper chest Sunday in his first practice since joining the team in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. Matthews finished practice before being escorted off the field to be evaluated. The Bills were looking for Mathews to play alongside Anquan Boldin, who was signed last week, and rookie second-round draft pick Zay Jones.
