Player News
Report: Bills name Tyrod Taylor starting QB
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:34 am ET) After a wide-open quarterback competition, the results are apparently in for Bills coach Rex Ryan. According to FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer, the Bills are prepared to name Tyrod Taylor their starter for Week 1. 

Taylor has performed well in the preseason, earning the edge over EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel, perhaps due to his threat as a runner in addition to his passing ability. 

Taylor has yet to make an NFL start, appearing in 14 games in four seasons as a backup with the Ravens. 


Bengals release WR Denarius Moore
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:08 am ET) The Bengals have waived receiver Denarius Moore, whom they picked up in the offseason in an attempt to add more speed to their receiving corps, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. 

Moore was expected to click with Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, his former coach with the Raiders, under whom he caught 97 passes for 1,436 yards in 2012-13. But Moore struggled in camp and caught just one pass in the preseason. 

The move puts veterans Greg Little and Brandon Tate in a better position to hang on to a roster spot. 


Report: Texans acquire OL Chris Clark from Broncos
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:00 am ET) The Texans made a move to shore up their offensive line, reportedly acquiring veteran tackle Chris Clark from the Broncos in exchange for a seventh-round pick, per the Denver Post

Clark has been in the league for eight seasons, the last five of which were with Denver. His addition helps a Houston offensive line in need of depth. 


Report: Jaguars trade K Josh Scobee to Steelers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:29 am ET) Kicker has been a trouble spot for the Steelers this preseason, and with their second player going down at the position, the team has reportedly reached a deal with the Jaguars to acquire veteran Josh Scobee, per The Florida Times-Union

The Steelers lost incumbent Shaun Suisham to a torn ACL in the Hall of Fame game, and Saturday, replacement Garrett Hartley injured his hamstring on a kickoff, putting Pittsburgh in desperation mode. 

Scobee had been with the Jags since 2004, and was 20 of 26 on field goals last season. 


Bills release veteran RB Fred Jackson
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:22 am ET) In a somewhat surprising move, the Bills released running back Fred Jackson as part of their roster trimming on Monday, just days after the veteran returned from a hamstring injury and looked sharp, per the Buffalo News

Jackson was scheduled to make $2.35 million this season. Jackson had been with the Bills since 2006, and although he only had one 1,000-yard rushing season (in 2009), he was always a valuable resource out of the backfield. 

Jackson figures to draw attention from several running-back needy squads in the next few days. 


Lions release injury-prone WR Ryan Broyles
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:03 am ET) The Lions are finally cutting ties with receiver Ryan Broyles, whose three-year stint with the team was marred by injury, per MLive.com.

Broyles had asked for his release two days ago after playing sparingly during the preseason. A second-round pick in 2012, Broyles tore his ACL in his rookie season and then ruptured his Achilles' tendon in 2013. 

Last season, Broyles had just two catches for 34 yards, playing in just 34 snaps all year. 


Redskins name Kirk Cousins Week 1 starter
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:57 am ET) The drama never stops in D.C. and according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, the Redskins have informed players that they are planning to have Kirk Cousins start their Week 1 contest against the Dolphins and not Robert Griffin III, who is apparently battling a concussion problem. 

There are reports of a rift between the football operations and ownership regarding Griffin, who has struggled this preseason before getting injured in the team's second preseason contest against Detroit. Griffin was cleared to play in the team's third preseason game before an independent neurologist reversed course, saying Griffin was still dealing with concussion-related symptoms.

Cousins has played well during the preseason, going 40-for-53 for 435 yards. 


Colts cut 14, including OL Donald Thomas
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:39 am ET) The Colts made their first wave of cuts Monday, trimming 14 to get to 76 players on the roster. Included in those moves was the release of guard Donald Thomas, once thought to be a key figure on the offensive line, whose effectiveness was cut short by injury, per the Indianapolis Star

The guard last played in a game in September of 2013, and he had just been activated from the physically unable to perform list Friday. In addition, cutting Thomas saves the Colts $3.75 million against the salary cap. 


Lions acquire TE Tim Wright from Buccaneers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:28 am ET) The Lions have reportedly made a deal with the Buccaneers to acquire tight end Timothy Wright, in exchange for rookie kicker Kyle Brindza according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport and confirmed by both teams. 

Wright had re-joined the Bucs after a season in New England in which he caught 26 passes and six touchdowns. Now, he will join a crowded tight end field in Detroit, where Joseph Fauria, Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew are in the mix. 


Giants WR Victor Cruz still struggling with calf ailment
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) The calf injury that has slowed the comeback of Giants standout wideout Victor Cruz has become a major concern, according to the New York Daily News.

Cruz, who is coming off knee surgery, has not been cleared to practice this week. It remains to be seen if his availability for the start of the regular season is threatened.

He has been sidelined since Aug. 17 and has yet to play in a preseason game. He appears unlikely to participate in the exhibition finale Thursday night at New England.
