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.
Day (back) participated in practice Tuesday for the first time since earlier in August, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.
Day has been injured for the past few weeks, but could still make the final roster given he performs well throughout the rest of the preaseason and gets back to full health. He won't have much IDP value, as he's buried on the defensive line depth chart.
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.
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.
Williams (toe) did not take part in on-field work Wednesday, Brian Dulik of The Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Williams suffered the toe injury during practice last week Wednesday's practice and has been working through it since. It's unclear what the specifics of the injury are and he's currently without a timetable for recovery. He's not expected to miss any regular season time, though it wouldn't be surprising if he sits the Browns' final preseason game, on Thursday against the Bears.
Mostert (hamstring) is unlikely to play Friday against Tampa Bay, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The speedster out of Purdue has been slowed by a hamstring injury of late and will not take the field for Friday's contest in all likelihood. His absence will be primarily felt on special teams Friday, but reserves such as Glenn Winston, Rajion Neal, and Jahwan Edwards could all see some carries in the second half as well with Mostert sitting.
The Bears claimed Williams of waivers after he was released by the Browns, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
With the Bears struggling with depth ar cornerback, they added a player who has been a starting nickel back, appearing in 26 games over the last two seasons. During that time, he recorded 60 tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defended and three forced fumbles. He's in the last year of his contract, and will be a restricted free agent after this season. For now, he'll provide depth, but it's conceivable that he can compete for a regular role with the defense.
Caldwell suffered a hamstring injury during the onset of training camp, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
It's currently unclear whether the hamstring was merely tweaked or if Caldwell has suffered something worse. Either way, there has been no timeline provided for his return. When healthy, the Browns' fifth-round pick will compete for a role out of the slot.
Bryant (suspension) pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug charges on Wednesday and could have his four-game suspension prolonged, Scott Petra of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Bryant was indicted in February on felony drug charges and originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his stance on Wednesday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges. As a result, the outside linebacker will receive 68 days probation which will expire on Oct. 3, the same day he is schedule to return from his original four-game suspension. However, now that Bryant has changed his plea, his case will yet again be reviewed under the league's policies, which could potentially lead to a lengthier suspension. Bryant recorded 5.5 sacks in 14 games in 2015.
Gordon (suspension) caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown (two targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.
According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal, Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman (hamstring) technically got the start, with Gordon then replacing the rookie for the second offensive snap. All three wideouts, along with Andrew Hawkins, ended up getting plenty of first-team work, but it was Gordon who clearly left the best impression. The 25-year-old snuck behind Brent Grimes on a double move to pick up 44 yards on the opening drive, then later outleapt Grimes for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. Gordon's lack of involvement in the time between might normally seem a bit concerning, but the Cleveland offense simply couldn't get anything going, with Robert Griffin ultimately taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. Whatever issues the Browns offense might still need to work out, Gordon's first on-field appearance since 2014 left little doubt that his elite athleticism is in tact. He should emerge as Griffin's favorite target upon completion of his four-game suspension, though it is possible the Browns quarterback will develop chemistry with Coleman, Pryor and TE Gary Barnidge in the meantime.
Bryant (chest) has been placed on the injured reserve list and will sit out the entire season, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Entering his eighth NFL season and fourth with the Browns, Bryant was a lock to start at defensive end after a 2015 campaign which saw him record a career-high and team-leading six sacks. The torn pectoral muscle he suffered earlier this month was originally thought to keep him out 4-to-6 months, making November the soonest possible return date. Rather than push his recovery in the hopes of a return the team decided it best to shut him down for the season. Carl Nassib appears first in line to replace Bryant, but John Hughes and Dylan Wynn could see some extra snaps as well.
