The Eagles released wide receiver Arrelious Benn with an injury settlement, according to ESPN on Saturday. Benn suffered a concussion in the third week of preseason, but it was a back injury that caused him to land on the injury reserve to start the season before he was officially waived by Philadelphia.
Bennett (hip) was sidelined for Saturday's preseason affair with the Buccaneers, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports.
The Ohio State product has been underwhelming in the early going. Although he appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars last season, Bennett was only able to tally 10 combined tackles. The revamped Jaguars defense is hoping that a healthy Bennett could be a solid return on investment during the regular season.
Walters left Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Walters is in his second year with the Jaguars, after compiling 32 receptions for 368 yards and touchdown last season. He's currently battling for a roster spot with the team, so it's an untimely injury for the 28-year-old wide receiver. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but his status for Thursday's practice is up in the air.
The Jaguars selected Day in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 103rd overall.
Day fell this far for a reason -- he's a small tackle at 6-foot-1, 293 pounds and doesn't boast standout athleticism to make up for it -- but there's reason to believe he has the skill set to overachieve despite his modest athletic attributes. Day was a four-year contributor at Notre Dame and one of the team's best defenders over the last two years, and he should provide Jacksonville with a high-energy, disruptive rotational piece on the defensive line.
Marshall (ankle) did not practice Saturday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.
The severity of Marshall's ankle injury is a bit unclear at this point, but he was held out of the Jaguars practice Saturday as a precaution. He's buried on the team's depth chart at cornerback, so he'll have to battle throughout the rest of training camp for a more prominent role.
Sample is questionable to return to Thursday's preseason opener against Jets due to an arm stinger, John Oehser of Jaguar.com reports.
Sample headed into Thursday's matchup competing for a roster spot. He currently projects as the third strong safety on the team's depth chart. The 24-year-old played in four games from the Jaguars in 2015, and posted eight tackles in the process.
Jackson dropped 12 pounds between OTA's and the start of training camp, Jacksonville.com reports.
Jackson, who signed a six-year deal with the Jaguars this offseason worth up to $85.5 million, said he spoke with coaches during OTA's and took their advice to heart. "The two things they talked to me about before we left for our break was losing weight and my cardio," Jackson said. "Coach Wash pulled me aside and said that's what I needed to work on." The 26-year-old played at around 308 pounds in 2015, when he recorded 5.0 sacks and 45 combined tackles, helping to lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl victory. As the headliner of a seven-man Jags free agent class, expectations will be high for Jackson, but head coach Gus Bradley is pleased with what he's seen thus far. "He has done a good job," Bradley said Friday. "I'll tell you what, he does a good job working on the edge. You know when you see him on a guard. Good technique and conditioning, he plays on the edge a little bit more and he shows some rushing."
Blackmon (suspension) was handed a one-year suspended sentence and probation Wednesday, stemming from a misdemeanor DUI, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
Colvin (suspension) returned to practice Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Colvin was dealing with an ankle injury and had been sidelined since the team's preseason opener. He was back on the field Wednesday and should be available for Saturday's matchup with the Buccaneers. Colvin is suspended for the first four games of the regular season for taking performance enhancing substances, but he should be back to full strength by then.
Smith (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
The 2014 fifth-rounder finishes up his 2015 season with a fantasy-friendly 128 tackles, to go along with 2.5 sacks and a pick in 14 games. He's on track to reprise his starting outside linebacker role for the Jags in 2016, an assignment that will make Smith -- whose shoulder issue will not require offseason surgery -- worthy of continued IDP utility next year.
Marks (triceps) returned to practice on Friday for the Jaguars' final day of OTAs, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Marks was a participant during individual drills for the first time this offseason after suffering torn triceps during November of the 2015 campaign, leading to an injured reserve designation. "It felt good just getting back, trusting the process, going out and not having any hiccups," Marks said Friday regarding his return to the practice field. The 6-foot-2, 294-pound veteran also believes he'll be a full participant for training camp, which begins in late July. He's expected to receive a lighter snap load throughout the 2016 regular season regardless, one reason being the addition of Malik Jackson in free agency.
Coach Jack Del Rio said that there is a "good chance" that Nelson (knee) won't play in Saturday's preseason affair with Tennessee, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN reports.
Nelson has missed the entire Raiders' offseason program nursing his knee and hasn't practiced at all this week. The road to recovery has been a bumpy one for Oakland's starting free safety, but his absence could be more of a result of the Raiders' wanting to see him at full strength before he suits up again. Veteran safety Nate Allen is expected to see an increased amount of reps while Nelson remains sidelined.
Edwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.
Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.
Joseph did not practice on Thursday for undisclosed reasons, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Joseph missed time in the offseason while he recovered from an ACL tear suffered back in October, but he hasn't missed any time in camp due to the injury. It's unclear if he's been given the day off for rest or if he's dealing with another injury of sorts. He should be considered day-to-day until more information is available. TJ Carrie figures to get some reps with the first team while Joseph is sidelined.
Reece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.
Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.
Smith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.
Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.
Walford (knee) failed to receive a single target during Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.
Walford was the first tight end off the bench with Lee Smith getting the start. Walford remains the better fantasy option despite being listed No. 2 on the depth chart due to Smith's role as a blocker. If Walford earns more snaps than just obvious passing downs throughout the regular season, he could become a productive factor in the team's aerial attack.
