8/27/2015 Maurkice Pouncey, Pit, C
Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said there's a chance the All-Pro center Pouncey will return later this season.

Analysis: Pouncey is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his left ankle Monday.
8/27/2015 Josh Johnson, NYJ, QB
The New York Jets have signed Johnson, adding another veteran to the mix of their quarterback competition.

Analysis: Ryan Fitzpatrick is the starting QB with Geno Smith sidelined several more weeks with a broken jaw. Fourth-round draft pick Bryce Petty is currently Fitzpatrick's backup. The Jets also signed veteran Matt Flynn last week. Johnson - a fifth-round pick of Tampa Bay in 2008 - was released by the Bengals Tuesday after A.J. McCarron won the backup job.
8/27/2015 Ra'Shede Hageman, Atl, DT
Hageman has been cleared to play in Miami on Saturday after going through the concussion protocol.

Analysis: The Atlanta defensive tackle suffered the injury in practice last week and missed the team's second preseason game against the Jets. Hageman, a second-round pick in 2014, could win a starting job with a strong training camp and preseason.
8/27/2015 Robert Griffin III, Was, QB
The Washington Redskins said Thursday an independent neurologist has cleared Griffin to participate in Saturday's preseason game against Baltimore.

Analysis: Griffin was reportedly hurt in last week's game against Detroit but evaded questions on when or if he suffered a concussion.
8/26/2015 Brandon McManus, Den, K
Connor Barth's release Wednesday means McManus has won Denver's kicking and kickoff jobs.

Analysis: McManus was 9 for 13 before being cut last season. He was quickly re-signed as a kickoff specialist and spent the offseason eliminating his jab-step and inconsistency.
8/26/2015 Connor Barth, TB, K
The Denver Broncos have released Barth to make room for Pro Bowl left guard Evan Mathis. Barth made 15 of 16 field goals over the final five weeks last season but was doomed by his poor kickoffs this preseason, one of which was returned 103 yards for a touchdown.

Analysis: A career 85 percent field goal kicker in seven NFL seasons, Barth was chosen the AFC's special teams player of the month last December after going 5-for-5 against Kansas City and San Diego. Connor's release means Brandon McManus has won the Broncos' kicking and kickoff jobs. He was 9-for-13 before Denver cut him last year.
8/26/2015 Osi Umenyiora, Atl, DE
Umenyiora is retiring as a member of the New York Giants. Umenyiora, who won two Super Bowls with the Giants, signed a one-day contract Wednesday and announced his retirement after 12 NFL seasons, the first 10 with New York and last two in Atlanta.

Analysis: Umenyiora had 75 of his 85 sacks with the Giants, fourth on the franchise's list, trailing only Hall of Famers Michael Strahan (141 1/2) and Lawrence Taylor (132 1/2) and Leonard Marshall (79 1/2). The 2003 second-round draft choice set the team's one-game record, recording six against Philadelphia in September 2007.
8/26/2015 Todd Gurley, StL, RB
Gurley didn't get a lot of reps during Tuesday's practice, but the No. 10 overall pick in the 2015 Draft took another step forward in his return from knee surgery.

Analysis: Rams coach Jeff Fisher announced Monday that Gurley had been cleared to ramp up his work in practice. He had previously been limited to individual and rehab work and held out of 7-on-7 and team drills. He took part in those on Tuesday, but still didn't get a lot of reps.
8/26/2015 Orlando Scandrick, Dal, CB
Scandrick's season is over before it started after the Dallas cornerback tore two ligaments in his right knee in practice at training camp Tuesday.

Analysis: A person with knowledge of the injury told The Associated Press that an MRI exam revealed tears to the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the injury.
8/26/2015 Bruce Gradkowski, Pit, QB
Gradkowski is done for the season with a hand injury.

Analysis: Though the veteran has never been worthy of fantasy consideration, he's enjoyed a nice NFL career as a backup.
