Player News
Bengals waive two players Monday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:32 pm ET) The Bengals waived wide receiver Tevin Reese on Monday. They also waived/injured fullback Mark Weisman, who will revert to injured reserve if he is not claimed on waivers.

Colts waive/injured cornerback Deveron Carr
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:29 pm ET) The Colts waived/injured cornerback Deveron Carr on Monday. If he clears waivers, then he will revert to season-ending injured reserve.

Carr was signed by the Colts on March 23. He spent time with the Bucs in each of the last two seasons.


Steelers place K Garrett Hartely on IR among Monday's moves
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) The Steelers made a slew of roster moves Monday, including placing offensive tackle Mike Adams on the PUP list to begin the season.

Pittsburgh also placed cornerback Senquez Golson and kicker Garrett Hartley on injured reserve, which means both players will miss the 2015 season.

Tight end Cameron Clear, defensive end Niko Davis and tight end Ray Hamilton were all waived/injured.

The Steelers also released G Miles Dieffenbach, WR Kenzel Doe, WR C.J. Goodwin, RB Braylon Heard, DE Joe Kruger, DT Joe Okafor, OL Collin Rahrig, CB Jordan Sullen, OT Kevin Whimpey and S Ian Wild.


Seahawks trade WR Kevin Norwood to Panthers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4:00 pm ET) The Seahawks traded wide receiver Kevin Norwood to the Panthers on Monday in exchange for an undisclosed 2017 draft pick.

Norwood caught nine passes for 102 yards as a rookie last season. 


NFL upholds four-game suspension for Steelers WR Martavis Bryant
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3:29 pm ET) Martavis Bryant will be suspended for the first four games of the season, as the player's appeal was denied Monday, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Bryant violated the NFL's substance-abuse policy, and his absence will leave the Steelers short-handed as they open the season next Thursday without Bryant and star running back Le'Veon Bell, who will also be serving a substance-abuse suspension. 

"We are disappointed in Martavis’ actions that has led to his four-game suspension," Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said. "It is a disappointment to our entire organization as well as our fans, but we will continue to support Martavis during his suspension. It is very unfortunate his actions have put our team in this situation to begin the year, but we are confident he will learn from his mistake and return in excellent shape in Week 5."

Bryant had a breakout campaign in the second half of last season, grabbing 26 catches for 549 yards and eight touchdowns. 


Bills coach Rex Ryan officially tabs Tyrod Taylor as QB
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3:19 pm ET) Bills coach Rex Ryan made the news official at a press conference Monday, naming Tyrod Taylor the team's starting quarterback, citing his "explosiveness" at the position, per The Buffalo News

Taylor has put up impressive numbers during the preseason, going 24-for-31 for 236 yards, but has not started a game since the 2011 Orange Bowl when he was the signal-caller for Virginia Tech. He has played in 14 games as a backup with the Ravens.

Ryan said that Taylor is "on top of what we are doing," and that with a team built to win now, Taylor gives them the best chance over fellow quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel. 

Taylor is scheduled to make $833,333 this season, but that figure could increase to $2 million with performance- and playing-time bonuses. 


Lions activate RB Joique Bell, DT Haloti Ngata
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3:08 pm ET) The Lions activated two of their most important players Monday, removing running back Joique Bell from the physically unable to perform list and removing defensive tackle Haloti Ngata from the non-football injury list, per the team's website. 

Bell was recovering from knee and Achilles surgeries, while Ngata was dealing with hamstring issues. Both players practiced Monday and are expected to be ready for the team's season opener. 


Browns LB Barkevious Mingo (knee) returns to practice
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(2:48 pm ET) Less than a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo returned to practice Monday, per Ohio.com.

Mingo participated in drills, but is not expected to play in the team's final preseason game. Browns coach Mike Pettie was optimistic, however, that Mingo could play in the regular season opener on Sept. 13. 

"I think that target is still up in the air, but it could be for the opener," he said. 


Colts WR T.Y. Hilton suffers concussion
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(2:01 pm ET) Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton suffered a concussion in Saturday's preseason contest and is currently in the league's protocol, per ProFootballTalk.com. 

Hilton reported symptoms of a concussion during the games, and he was evaluated by team doctors. The league will have the clear the Colts' No. 1 receiver in order for him to take the field in Week 1. 


Giants bring back S Stevie Brown
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:43 pm ET) The Giants announced Monday they have signed safety Stevie Brown, who was a member of the team from 2012-14 but was signed by the Texans in the offseason before being released. 

Brown had eight interceptions for the Giants in 2012 but missed the entire 2013 season and struggled to regain his form in 2014. Still, with the Giants' defensive backfield in flux, bringing back a familiar face was an easy decision. 

"Pretty exciting just being able to come back here," he said. "[It] seems like a position of need and it is a good fit [so] definitely exciting to come back."
