Player News
Aaron Dobson indicates Thursday he's on right path
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:55 am ET) Patriots second-year wideout Aaron Dobson felt encouraged by his 2014 preseason debut Thursday night against the Giants.

Dobson caught three passes for 57 yards and a 33-yard touchdown in the second quarter that provided his team's first score. Not bad considering he's coming off March surgery on his left foot.

"I feel like everything is coming," Dobson told the Boston Herald. "I can't say everything is back. It's my first game back, so I've still got to feel everything out. I'm still getting my confidence, just building my confidence and growing as much as I can."

Dobson missed all of the offseason workouts and didn't begin his training camp until Aug. 11.


Charles Clay seeking to run with momentum in 2014
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:43 am ET) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay emerged as one of the premier pass-catchers at his position in the NFL a year ago. He caught 69 passes for 759 yards and six touchdowns. He snagged at least five passes in seven of 16 games.

But Clay is far from satisfied. He yearns to improve his blocking, reading of coverages and reliability.

"I had drops last year that were unacceptable," Clay told the Miami Sun-Sentinel. "My standard is higher than anybody could ever have for me.

"After last year people came to me and said, 'Hey, you had this good year.' I don't look at it that way. I look at all the things I could have done better. I think about all the plays I left on the field."

Clay caught just one pass for 18 yards in the preseason after missing time with a knee injury. He has proclaimed himself ready for the regular season.


Denarius Moore scores twice in preseason finale
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 am ET) Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore pretty much maximized his four targets Thursday night against Seattle.

Moore caught a 36-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and added an 11-yard score in the second. He finished with three catches for 58 yards. Moore has snagged nine passes for 140 yards in the preseason.


Johnny Manziel runs better than he throws Thursday night
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:24 am ET) Browns ballyhooed rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel struggled with his arm, but made up for it with his legs Thursday night in the preseason finale against Chicago.

Manziel completed just 6 of 17 for 83 yards and a 1-yard touchdown to tight end Jim Dray off a bootleg. Several of his passes, particularly the deeper ones, fluttered or were wildly inaccurate.

But Manziel also rushed for 55 yards on four attempts for a 13.8 average. He eluded several Chicago defenders on one scramble before firing a game-long 27-yard completion to Nate Burleson.


Santonio Holmes scores touchdown in loss to Browns
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:19 am ET) Bears veteran wide receiver Santonio Holmes snagged just one pass Thursday night in Cleveland, but he certainly made the most of it.

Holmes took a 32-yarder to the house two minutes into the second quarter. He was also utilized as a punt returner and ran 30 yards with his only opportunity.


Blake Bortles continues to impress with strong effort Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:15 am ET) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles didn't chuck the ball often enough to make too many judgments, but he didn't do anything Thursday night against Atlanta to alter the impression that he's had a strong preseason.

Bortles completed 4 of 6 for 86 yards and a 57-yard touchdowns strike eight seconds into the second quarter to Marqise Lee. He has hit on 14 of 22 for 244 yards in exhibition play.


Derek Carr fires three touchdown passes in preseason finale
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:23 am ET) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr made a pretty strong case for himself to win the starting job during Thursday's preseason finale against the Seahawks.

Carr led the team to four touchdown drives, most of which came against Seattle's first unit. He hooked up with Denarius Moore for scores of 36 and 11 yards. He also fired a 20-yard touchdown pass to Mychal Rivera.

Carr completed 11 of 14 passes for 143 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions, finishing with a 152.1 passer rating. This preseason, the rookie signal-caller compiled 326 yards through the air while completing 30 of 45 passes. He added four touchdowns and one interception.

Andrew Hawkins, Miles Austin to start Week 1
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:07 am ET) As expected, Browns head coach Mike Pettine told reporters after the final preseason game that wide receivers Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin will start Week 1 at Pittsburgh, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Both wideouts moved up a spot on the depth chart after the league suspended Josh Gordon for the entire 2014 season.

X-rays come back negative for Blaine Gabbert
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:04 am ET) 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters that quarterback Blaine Gabbert had X-rays on his right shoulder, which came back negative.

Gabbert worked five drives in the first half before leaving the game. He is competing with Josh Johnson for the No. 2 job behind Colin Kaepernick. Harbaugh indicated that he would like three quarterbacks on the 53-man active roster.


Buster Skrine ditches hard cast for soft cast Thursday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:00 am ET) Browns cornerback Buster Skrine is no longer wearing a hard cast on his right arm and hand, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. Skrine is just 10 days removed from thumb surgery and is wearing a soft cast. He is listed as week to week, leaving his status up in the air for Week 1 against Pittsburgh.
