Latest Player News

Nate Allen (groin) was absent from Wednesday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

Allen has now been nursing a groin injury for about a week and a half, but the severity or an exact timetable is yet to be determined. Allen was in line to start the season at free safety for the Dolphins, but they may be on hold, pending how his recovery goes.

Craig Mager (undisclosed) could be ready to make his 2017 preseason debut Sunday against the Saints, The Orange County Register reports.

Impact

Mager has been held out of training camp action the past several weeks. He finished the 2016 season on IR with a shoulder injury, but It's unclear if this recent absence is due to his previous issue.

Josh Gordon

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell indicated Thursday that at this time, the potential reinstatement of Josh Gordon (suspension) "is not under active consideration," Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Impact

Per the report, Gordon, whose petition for reinstatement was denied in May, is eligible to re-apply in September. To date at least, Gordon's current status is not a matter that has "made it to (Goodell's) desk yet." Though productive when he's been able to suit up, Gordon – whose NFL rights are retained by the Browns – hasn't played in an NFL game since December of 2014.

DeSean Jackson (W, TB)

DeSean Jackson (ankle) could be sidelined for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Roy Cummings of WFLA News Channel 8 reports.

Impact

Jackson has been nursing a sore ankle throughout practice this week. As a result, the Buccaneers may elect to proceed cautiously and keep their speedy wideout on the sideline Thursday, with an eye toward ensuring that Jackson and fellow starter Mike Evans remain healthy in advance of Week 1.

Francis Owusu (undisclosed) was reverted back to the Dolphins' injured reserved after being waived/injured by the team.

Impact

Owusu managed to clear waivers and will spend the 2017 season on the Dolphins' injured reserve as a result. Owusu was unlikely to land on the team's final roster before the injury occurred.

Donavon Clark (knee) played 14 snaps in Sunday's preseason opener against the Seahawks.

Impact

Clark suffered some misfortune in last year's preseason opener, tearing his ACL and landing on injured reserve. He was projected to serve as D.J. Fluker's backup last season and the 2016 seventh-round pick will likely battle for that spot again this season.

Tre Boston (knee) notched two tackles (one solo) in Sunday's preseason opener against the Seahawks.

Impact

Boston inked a contract with the Chargers in the offseason after totaling a career-high 53 tackles and two interceptions as a member of the Panthers' secondary in 2017. However, a knee injury forced him to injured reserve to close out the campaign. Now healthy, the 24-year-old safety will have to prove his worth as a reserve with his new club in Los Angeles.

Charmeachealle Moore (undisclosed) was reverted back to injured reserve after being waived/injured by the Chargers.

Impact

The details surrounding Moore's injury were not released, but the linebacker will be forced to sit out the 2017 season on the Chargers' IR as a result.

Joey Bosa (finger) took the field for the team's first preseason game Friday against the Seahawks, recording two tackles (both solo).

Impact

Bosa dislocated his finger early in training camp, but the issue seems to be a thing of the past. He's avoided surgery on the finger and enters his second campaign looking to build off a 10.5-sack rookie campaign.

Luke Willson (W, Sea)

Luke Willson (groin) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Vikings, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Impact

Willson's minor groin injury shouldn't linger for much longer, as the Seahawks expect to have him back on the field next week against the Chiefs. During his absence Friday, Nick Vannett figures to see additional work behind Jimmy Graham at tight end.

Dalton Crossan (undisclosed) reverted back to the Colts' injured reserve after clearing waivers.

Impact

The nature of Crossan's injury has yet to be specified, but he's now in line to spend the 2017 season on injured reserve in Indianapolis.

Paul Richardson (W, Sea)

Paul Richardson (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Friday's preseason contest against the Vikings, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Impact

Richardson's Week 1 availability doesn't appear to be in jeopardy after suffering an AC sprain in his shoulder during the Seahawks' preseason debut, but the team may elect to keep him sidelined or limited Friday as a precaution. Fellow receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) is also a game-time call, so Jermaine Kearse and Tanner McEvoy could see first-team reps alongside Doug Baldwin.

Connor Hamlett (leg) was reverted to the Cowboys' injured reserve after clearing waivers.

Impact

Hamlett was waived/injured by the Cowboys on Tuesday after breaking his fibula, but he now will be placed on the team's injured reserve and be unable to play this season.

Tanoh Kpassagnon (shin) led all Chiefs defensive linemen with 49 snaps in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Impact

Kpassagnon had been dealing with shin splints, so a return to health and preseason game action bodes well as he competes for meaningful snaps.

The Seahawks waived Jamel Johnson on Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

Impact

Johnson was vying for a spot on the bottom of the wide receiver depth chart, but faced an uphill battle to earn it. He'll now attempt to latch on with another club.

Tyler Lockett (W, Sea)

Tyler Lockett (leg) will be a game-time decision for Friday's preseason contest against the Vikings, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Impact

Lockett plans to test his injured leg in pregame warmups in order to assess if he'll be able to play or not. His priority is Week 1 availability, however, so don't expect the Seahawks to rush him back into action. Paul Richardson (shoulder) is also questionable for Friday, so Tanner McEvoy could end up seeing reps with the first team if both of the aforementioned receivers are ruled out.

Cairo Santos (K, KC)

Cairo Santos (groin) did not participate in Tuesday's practice session, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.

Impact

Santos continues to deal with a nagging groin issue but there's no indication to this point that he will miss any regular-season action because of it. When healthy, he should resume his role as the team's placekicker.

David King (ankle) recorded three tackles and one sack in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Impact

King had been dealing with an ankle injury but appears to be healthy based on his latest game performance. The former Oklahoma Sooner is competing with Maurice Swain and Tanoh Kpassagnon (shin) to back up starter Allen Bailey.

McQuay (neck) has returned to practice with the team at training camp, David Eulitt of The Kansas City Star reports.

Impact

McQuay suffered the neck injury earlier in camp, but his pass breakup during practice proves he's returned to the gridiron. The rookie sixth-round pick out of USC needs plenty of reps in training camp to prove he's worthy of a 53-man roster spot and he'll rejoin the competition in Kansas City's secondary now that he's healthy.

Kelechi Osemele (hand) was dressed for practice Wednesday but participated in a limited fashion, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

Osemele is still nursing a sore hand, but it appears as though the Raiders are easing the left guard back into training camp. Expect the team to reaming cautious with the All-Pro lineman through the next couple of weeks of training camp.
