    Giants' Jerell Adams: Should have a role
    9m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jerell Adams , who should carve out a roster spot as a core special teams player, could see some time on offense due to his blocking ability, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Will Tye and Larry Donnell are ahead of him on the depth chart, but both are weak blockers, and if the New York Giants offensive line continues to struggle, Adams could see snaps on offense. Adams is a good athlete, but is still raw as a receiver, however.

    Buccaneers' Evan Spencer: Still in play for one of final receiver spots
    9m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Evan Spencer (knee) remains a contender for one of the Bucs' final receiver spots, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 23-year-old missed last Friday's game against the Browns with a knee injury suffered against the Jaguars the previous week, but has been back on the practice field this week. Spencer figures to receive plenty of reps in Wednesday night's preseason finale as the Bucs attempt to finalize the back end of their wide receiver corps. The former Buckeye has had a quiet showing through the two exhibition contests he has participated in, securing just two of six targets for 27 yards.

    Buccaneers' Mike Glennon: Likely to remain with Bucs through 2016 season
    21m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Mike Glennon is a main reason that head coach Dirk Koetter expresses optimism about the team's depth at quarterback, and is thus unlikely to be dealt heading into his contract year this season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The four-year veteran appears destined for another season of holding the clipboard behind Jameis Winston, unless a quarterback-needy team comes calling with an offer the Bucs can't refuse. One such squad could conceivably be the Vikings, whose fans voted for Glennon as their top choice to replace the fallen Teddy Bridgewater (knee) in an online poll late Tuesday as reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. However, Koetter appears to value the insurance policy of having a backup in Glennon who started 18 games in 2013-14, particularly with likely third-string signal-caller Ryan Griffin having yet to take a regular-season snap in the NFL. With Glennon likely on the move next offseason to a potential starting opportunity elsewhere, his presence on the roster in 2016 would provide the Bucs with the luxury of grooming Griffin for one additional season.

    Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Prospects not looking good heading into preseason finale
    39m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jonathan Krause 's chances to claim one of the Bucs' final receiver spots appear dim heading into the preseason finale versus Washington, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 24-year-old had impressed early in camp and amassed three catches for 56 yards over the first two exhibition games, but his participation was notably reduced in last Friday's victory over the Browns. Krause received only nine snaps in that contest and was not targeted, while also being shut out of the punt return rotation. He figures to have some extended opportunity to showcase his skills in Wednesday night's finale versus the Redskins with the top receiving trio of Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries expected to play sparingly, if at all.

    The fourth-year back was once again toiling away Tuesday in his quest to secure the third running back spot, a battle that figures to come down to Wednesday night's preseason finale against the Redskins. James will likely get a solid amount of work in a game that both Doug Martin and Charles Sims may take a seat for, leaving the former Miami Hurricane to display his wares alongside fellow candidates Peyton Barber and Russell Hansbrough. James does have the edge on that pair of candidates with respect to experience in head coach Dirk Koetter's system, having been on the Bucs' roster and practice squad for two separate stints last season, despite not receiving any carries.

    Vincent Jackson (undisclosed) was held out of practice Tuesday for a second straight day, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The veteran receiver was also held out of practice Monday, yet no details as to why have been provided by the team and there is no sign that the absence is related to anything serious. In fact, Jackson may simply have received back-to-back days off for rest, as there appeared to be no indication of injury while he amassed a team-high nine targets in last Friday's victory over the Browns. Jackson is unlikely to play in the preseason finale against the Redskins on Wednesday, but that is more than likely due to the fact that the majority of the team's starters will also take a seat. At present, his status for Week 1 against the Falcons does not appear to be in jeopardy.

    Texans' Tom Savage: Starting Thursday in preseason finale
    3h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tom Savage will be the starting quarterback Thursday night when the Houston Texans face the Cowboys in their final preseason game, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Savage has been sharp during the preseason in relief of starting quarterback Brock Osweiler, earning the backup role ahead of Brandon Weeden. Through three games, the Pitt product has completed 25-of-47 passes for 318 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions for a rating of 95.9. His 53.9 percent completion percentage is not too impressive, but he's dealt with uneven circumstances, playing mostly with the twos and threes. "I think he's improved," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "I'd just like to see steady improvement from him. I think one of the things that we have to do at that position on Thursday is take care of the football, manage the game properly, move the sticks on third down, execute in the red area, get us into the right plays."

    Shaun Hill is not expected to play in the Minnesota Vikings ' preseason finale versus the Rams on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

    After Teddy Bridgewater suffered a season-ending ACL tear on Tuesday, the Vikings decided they'll hold their veteran quarterback out to avoid an injury. Hill is currently the projected favorite to open up the season as the starting quarterback, but is still expected to sit out Thursday. With that being said, undrafted rookie Joel Stave is slated to see the majority of the reps against the Rams, although the Vikings will likely bring in another free agent quarterback to split reps with him.

    Teddy Bridgewater has officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL, a dislocated knee, and other structural damage, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

    Bridgewater went down at practice earlier Tuesday with a non-contact injury. Just as the Minnesota Vikings ' brass feared, a torn ACL means he's expected to miss the entire season. The good news for Bridgewater is there's no nerve or arterial damage and he's expected to make a full recovery, so the injury isn't career threatening. Shaun Hill is the current favorite to move into the starting lineup in his place, although it wouldn't be surprising if the Vikings added another veteran quarterback prior to the regular season.

    Shaw suffered a broken leg during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Chiefs, but no timetable has been provided for his return. It's still possible he could return this year, though, since NFL teams are each allowed to activate any one player per season off IR following Week 6. However, it's likely that Shaw's 2016 campaign has ended before it even began.

    Spencer Ware has been getting the most snaps with the first-team offense as Jamaal Charles is behind schedule in his recovery from last year's torn ACL and has not yet regained the role of featured back, ESPN reports.

    It looks like Ware could get the most carries in Week 1 or early in the season with Charles working in a reserve role or as part of a committee. Charcandrick West could also be part of the committee. What was thought to be a backfield with Charles as the main back now looks to be in flux with this report.

    Jamaal Charles is behind schedule in his recovery from last year's torn ACL and has not yet regained the role of featured back, ESPN reports. "For Jamaal, it's [a matter of] getting trust in the leg,'' head coach Andy Reid said. "Every day he does a little but more and a little bit more and his cuts are a little bit sharper. It's just a matter of time and we're OK there. We're OK with that.''

    Spencer Ware has been getting the most snaps with the starters in practice along with Charcandrick West, with few left for Charles, the report adds. This report would make it appear that Charles may begin the season in a reserve role or as part of a committee at running back. Watch his progress closely as Week 1 of the regular season approaches.

    Keith Marshall (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Marshall is only expected to be sidelined for three weeks, but by placing him on IR the Washington Redskins don't have to face the option of releasing him. The rookie was 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 preseason. Many believed Kelley had the edge heading into this week, 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 midseason as each team is allowed to remove a player from injured reserve after Week 6.

    Lasco suffered a concussion in last Friday's third preseason affair with Pittsburgh. Prior to the injury, various reports surfaced that the 23-year-old rookie would likely make the 53-man roster. Although nothing is certain, Lasco was cleared by the league's concussion protocol fairly quickly, which could help his chances of surviving the final cuts.

    Buccaneers' Kenny Bell: Hoping to get second look at kickoff returner in preseason finale

    Kenny Bell is likely to receive some work at kickoff returner in Wednesday's preseason finale following the release of Donteea Dye, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I hope so. I do believe I will," Bell said of the opening for a kickoff returner with Donteea Dye waived this week after sustaining a hamstring injury. "Anything I can do in a positive manner is a good way to get on the team, whether it's gunning, covering kicks or returning them. ... Obviously I would love a second chance. I haven't gotten one yet, but definitely ready for that opportunity."

    The second-year receiver is in search of redemption following his fumble on the opening runback of preseason against the Eagles, a miscue that apparently cost him any further opportunities in that capacity over the following two games. With the release of Donteea Dye (hamstring) on Monday, Bell is hopeful of having a chance to put the mistake behind him in Wednesday's preseason finale against the Redskins. A strong showing on special teams could well be pivotal to the former Cornhusker's bid for a roster spot, considering that there are still numerous candidates vying for what is likely two open slots at most. Bell and his fellow competitors should all see extensive time against Washington, as Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries are all expected to play sparingly, if at all.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
