Many teams will have the bulk of their roster decisions made Friday -- at least in regards to their initial 53-man rosters. And then a host of other moves will follow Sunday and Monday as players are claimed, practice squads are set and more trades occur.

Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson (hamstring) won't play Thursday against the Falcons, reports the Florida Times-Union. By the time the season opener rolls around, the second-round pick will have had more than five weeks to recover from his injury, the paper said.
Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley closed his postgame press conference by noting that injured kicker Josh Scobeeshould be back for the season opener against the Eagles in Philadelphia Sept. 7, per the team's official website. Scobee suffered a quad injury on Aug. 22 against the Lions in preseason and wasn't able to play Thursday against Atlanta.
