by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Free agent linebacker James Harrison is scheduled to take a physical for the Cardinals Friday, the Arizona Republic reports.

While it appears the sides are working towards a deal, it "isn't a foregone conclusion" Harrison signs with Arizona. He visited the Cardinals Wednesday.


Wes Welker cleared to travel with team
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has been cleared to travel with the team for Thursday's preseason finale against the Cowboys, the Denver Post reports.

Welker is recovering from a concussion and has yet to be cleared to engage in contact. He was wearing a more-padded helmet when he took the hit that led to his third concussion in the last 10 months. The receiver's status for Week 1 is still up in the air.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey signed a four-year contract extension worth $36 million, including $20.5 million guaranteed, his agent told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Casey had 10.5 sacks and 55 tackles last year.

Morris Claiborne expected to miss entire preseason again
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne probably won't play in Thursday's preseason finale, marking the second straight preseason in which he has not played a down, reports ESPN.com. Claiborne missed this year's preseason opener with knee tendinitis and the past two games due to a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

Claiborne returned to practice this week, but likely will be held out against the Broncos. "Just not worth the risk to go backwards," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said.

Mark Ingram 'healthy, fit and decisive'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram, a 2011 first-round pick, "is ready to put together his best NFL season," reports the team's website. "Ingram is healthy, fit and decisive as a runner."

Ingram has rushed for 148 yards on 21 carries (7.0 ypc) this preseason while catching two passes for 27 yards and scoring two touchdowns. "We saw a snapshot of the player Ingram could be at the end of last season," the website said. "He looks even better than he did then."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Pete Carroll: Paul Richardson is 'very consistent'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said rookie wideout Paul Richardson has "done really good stuff" and been "very consistent on the practice field," reports the Seattle Times.

"He shows that he understands the offense and can make adjustments to the routes and can read things and all that," Carroll added. "It’s always hard for all those young guys to be exactly right all the time. They’re going to miss some things, which he’s done in really typical fashion. But he has shown toughness, he’s shown route running ability, he’s caught tough balls underneath, he’s got open deep. We really think he’s got a chance to help us, so we’re real excited about his progress."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
