Team: 

Date Player
8/26/2016 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
A video that appeared to show Elliott inside a marijuana dispensary in Seattle has been posted on social media, drawing a negative response from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Analysis: "Well, I think that in and of itself the reason we are talking about is in a way part of the learning process," said Jones of the video posted by celebrity website TMZ.com. "But it's not good. It's just not good." Elliott did not appear to be making any purchases and isn't expected to draw any discipline from the NFL. The rookie running back is coming off an impressive preseason debut, rushing for 48 yards on seven carries in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks.
8/26/2016 Keanu Neal, Atl, S
Neal will miss the start of the season with a knee injury.

Analysis: The team says Neal will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Monday and will miss three to four weeks. Neal, the team's first-round pick from Florida and a projected starter, hurt his knee in the first quarter of the Falcons' 17-6 preseason loss to the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. He had to be helped off the field.
8/26/2016 Eric Berry, KC, S
Berry is expected to end his holdout and report to the Chiefs by Sunday. Multiple reports indicated Berry would be with the team by Sunday but miss the all-important third preseason game against the Bears.

Analysis: Berry was not required to report to training camp and cannot be fined for missing time because he was designated a franchise player. The 2015 Comeback Player of the Year can become a free agent at the end of this season. Berry has a salary of $10.806 million for the 2016 season as the franchise player but was unhappy the team was unable to work out a long-term deal, while others - namely Vikings Pro Bowl safety Harrison Smith, who got a $51 million deal in Minnesota.
8/26/2016 Tom Brady, NE, QB
Brady is expected to make his preseason debut Friday night against the Panthers.

Analysis: Brady is making the trip to Carolina with the team but it is not known whether Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo will start or how many series either will play, according to CSNNE.com. Brady confirmed Tuesday that he was supposed to start last week's second preseason game against the Chicago Bears but didn't end up playing after cutting his thumb in an accident with scissors just before the contest.
8/26/2016 Dak Prescott, Dal, QB
Prescott completed 17 of 23 passes for 116 yards for Dallas against Seattle on Thursday.

Analysis: Prescott is doing all he can to secure the No. 2 QB spot behind Tony Romo, who was injured in this contest but seems OK.
8/26/2016 Russell Wilson, Sea, QB
Wilson finished 16-of-21 passing for 192 yards against the Cowboys on Thursday.

Analysis: Wilson is a no-doubt QB1 and a top 5 selection among the position.
8/26/2016 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Elliott debuted for the Cowboys on Thursday against the Seahawks.

Analysis: Elliott carried seven times for 48 yards, leaving Dallas fans to feel good about their top pick.
8/25/2016 Tony Romo, Dal, QB
Romo lasted just three plays in Thursday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks after getting pulled down from behind by Cliff Avril.

Analysis: Turned out it was all just a scare. Romo walked off the field without assistance, threw passes on the sideline and lobbied for a return to the game. Dallas coach Jason Garrett opted to play it safe and Romo donned a baseball hat as a spectator the rest of the night.
8/25/2016 Ndamukong Suh, Mia, DT
Suh left Thursday's game with an ankle injury.

Analysis: His status going forward is uncertain, but this could be an issue for those in IDP leagues.
8/25/2016 Arian Foster, Mia, RB
Foster had a 2-yard touchdown run in the Miami Dolphins' 17-6 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.

Analysis: Foster, who joined the Dolphins during the offseason and is coming off an Achilles injury, had his most extensive playing time with his new team in the third preseason game that was played at Orlando's Camping World Stadium. With Foster expected to challenge second-year running back Jay Ajayi in the Dolphins backfield this season, coach Adam Case came into Thursday night's game wanting a little more to evaluate Foster on.
8/25/2016 Julio Jones, Atl, WR
Jones left Thursday's game with a monor ankle injury after making one catch for 17 yards.

Analysis: Keep posted of Jones' status because he is a top 20 fantasy selection and among the top 3 receivers in the game.
8/25/2016 Ryan Tannehill, Mia, QB
Tannehill engineered a first-half touchdown drive to help the Miami Dolphins beat the Atlanta Falcons 17-6 in a preseason game Thursday night at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. Tannehill guided the Dolphins to the end zone early in the second quarter, completing several short passes to give Miami a first-and-goal situation at Atlanta's 1-yard line.

Analysis: Perhaps Tannehill is in for a breakout season under first-year coach Adam Gase. Tannehill, though, is still not a QB to bank on as a starter in standard fantasy formats.
8/25/2016 Victor Cruz, NYG, WR
Barring an injury, Cruz is going to play Saturday against the Jets.

Analysis: Cruz, who has not played since injuring a knee in his sixth game in 2014, got through a week of practice without aggravating a groin injury that kept him out of preseason games against Miami and Buffalo.
8/25/2016 Barkevious Mingo, NE, LB
The Patriots have acquired Mingo from the Browns in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported the pick is a 2017 fifth-rounder.

Analysis: Mingo was the sixth overall pick of the 2013 draft but made little impact in three seasons with Cleveland, recording seven sacks and zero forced fumbles in 46 games (16 starts). The 25-year-old will be a free agent at season's end after the Browns declined the fifth-year option on his rookie contract in May.
8/25/2016 Nick Martin, Hou, C
Martin has undergone ankle surgery and is expected to be placed on injured reserve.

Analysis: The rookie badly injured his ankle during a joint practice with the Saints last week. Martin, Houston's second-round pick in this year's draft, had been working as the starting center during preseason.
8/25/2016 Stevan Ridley, Det, RB
The Lions have cut Ridley.

Analysis: Detroit signed Ridley in April, hoping he would bolster its depth in the backfield after releasing Joique Bell. Ridley started in one game and played in eight more for the New York Jets last season and ran for just 90 yards. He had 1,263 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns in 2012 with the New England Patriots. Ridley has run for 2,907 yards and 22 touchdowns over his five-year career.
8/24/2016 Damion Square, SD, DT
Square has been suspended four games without pay for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Chargers announced Wednesday.

Analysis: He appeared in six games with San Diego last season and made six tackles.
8/24/2016 Joey Bosa, SD, DE
The Chargers have withdrawn their contract offer to Bosa and will restructure a new deal that takes into account his absence from the team.

Analysis: The Chargers' statement Wednesday said they believe "Joey will be unable to contribute for the full 16-game season without the adequate time on the practice field, in the classroom, and in preseason games." They characterized their previous offers to the Ohio state defensive end as fair and structurally consistent with the contracts of every other Chargers player." Bosa is the only first-rounder who has not signed with his team.
8/24/2016 Teddy Bridgewater, Min, QB
Bridgewater is on track to play this weekend in the first game at the team's new stadium. "Of course," was Bridgewater's answer, with a big smile, when asked if he's expecting to take the field on Sunday for the opener at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Analysis: The minor shoulder injury, reported by ESPN.com as the reason Bridgewater sat out as a surprise scratch last week at Seattle, has abated enough for him to resume throwing in practice. He was eased back in Tuesday and started heaving long passes again Wednesday. "I feel good. I feel very good," Bridgewater said, staying otherwise coy about his status as coach Mike Zimmer has instructed him. Zimmer said he thought Bridgewater threw the ball well in practice Wednesday.
8/24/2016 Colin Kaepernick, SF, QB
Kaepernick is on track to make his first appearance of the preseason Friday night against the Packers after his tired shoulder made it through a full week of practice without any limitations.

Analysis: "Everything has been going great," Kaepernick said Wednesday. "Everything has been going as planned. I'm excited to get back out there Friday." Coach Chip Kelly said Kaepernick looked good in practice this week and is expected to play barring any setbacks before the game.
