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.

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.

Lions acquire TE Tim Wright from Buccaneers
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
The calf injury that has slowed the comeback of
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.
