Date Player
9/4/2015 Paul Janus, Det, C
Janus had a touchdown catch Thursday.

Analysis: He's among the young players vying to help fill the void left by the season-ending knee injury to top wideout Jordy Nelson.
9/4/2015 Cody Parkey, Phi, K
Parkey was in uniform, but is dealing with a groin injury and didn't play Thursday.

Analysis: Continue to monitor Parkey's situation because he's a solid fantasy option.
9/4/2015 TJ Jones, Det, WR
Jones boosted his chances of staying in Detroit, turning a short pass into a 64-yard touchdown to help the Lions beat the Buffalo Bills 17-10 Thursday night.

Analysis: Jones - who missed all of his rookie season last year because of a shoulder injury - played extensively in part because after another wide receiver was injured.
9/4/2015 Thaddeus Lewis, Cle, QB
Lewis had a difficult night filling in at QB for Josh McCown and the injured Johnny Manziel on Thursday at Chicago.

Analysis: He got sacked six times and had an interception returned 25 yards for a touchdown by Chicago's Sherrod Martin in the third quarter.
9/4/2015 Montee Ball, Den, RB
Ball ran 16 times for just 27 yards Thursday.

Analysis: Ball slid down the depth chart this summer and was trying to convince coach Gary Kubiak he should keep four running backs. His poor performance might not matter, though.
9/4/2015 Tyler Lockett, Sea, WR
Lockett scored his third touchdown of the preseason on a 63-yard reception from Russell Wilson on Thursday.

Analysis: Lockett was drafted by Seattle for his ability as a returner on special teams, but will likely be in the wide receiver rotation when the season begins.
9/4/2015 Jarryd Hayne, SF, RB
On Thursday, Hayne carried 10 times for 58 yards, caught a pair of passes for 17 yards, and returned three punts for 43 yards.

Analysis: The former Australian rugby league star once again made his case for a spot on the 53-man roster. Coach Jim Tomsula said Sunday on the heels of a loss at Denver that he had seen everything he needed to evaluate Hayne, who emerged through a strong training camp as a contender to make the 53-man roster, which will be announced Saturday.
9/3/2015 Daniel Herron, Ind, RB
Herron headed to the locker room midway through the second quarter Thursday with an undisclosed shoulder injury.

Analysis: Depending on his health, Herron could be a solid handcuff option to Frank Gore. Continue to monitor his progress.
9/3/2015 Tom Obarski, Cin, K
The rookie from Concordia-St. Paul, a small school in Minnesota, made a 28-yard field goal with 2:49 to go Thursday night, and the Bengals defense kept Indianapolis out of the end zone to hold on for a 9-6 victory in the preseason finale.

Analysis: Now he'll wait anxiously to see if he's done enough to give veteran Mike Nugent the boot.
9/3/2015 Brett Hundley, GB, QB
Hundley threw for four scores in a 38-10 win Thursday night over winless New Orleans.

Analysis: A fifth-round draft pick out of UCLA, Hundley flashed promise for a second straight game in showing zip on his passes while moving the offense effectively. He was 16 of 23 for 236 yards. Hundley appears ticketed to be the third-string quarterback in Green Bay behind NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and Scott Tolzien.
9/3/2015 Tevin Coleman, Atl, RB
Coleman ran for 56 yards on eight carries in Thursday's preseason finale.

Analysis: The rookie could open the season as the starter. He would have some solid fantasy value if that's the case.
9/3/2015 Tim Tebow, Phi, QB
Tebow threw two touchdown passes and an interception in his final opportunity to make Philadelphia's roster, and the Eagles fell to the New York Jets 24-18 on Thursday night.

Analysis: Tebow, competing with Matt Barkley for the No. 3 quarterback job, flashed some of the playmaking and inconsistency that have made him so polarizing. He finished 11 of 17 for 189 yards, and added 32 yards on four rushes.
9/3/2015 Sean Renfree, Atl, QB
Renfree threw a touchdown pass and led another scoring drive to overshadow the preseason debut of Rex Grossman as the Atlanta Falcons held off the Baltimore Ravens 20-19 on Thursday night in their final preseason game.

Analysis: Renfree made the most of his final bid to open the season as Matt Ryan's backup. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 75 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Carlton Mitchell.
9/3/2015 Tom Brady, NE, QB
Brady is not in uniform for the New England Patriots' final preseason game, against the New York Giants.

Analysis: Hours after a federal judge's decision to overturn Brady's four-game suspension handed down by the NFL in the "Deflategate" scandal, Brady is not on the sideline for the game. Several fans chanted "BRADY, BRADY," when the team came out of the locker room into the bowl of the stadium, but the quarterback was nowhere to be seen.
9/3/2015 Jamison Crowder, Was, WR
The NFL says it has concluded its investigation into Crowder in connection to a domestic violence episode, and he will not face discipline from the league.

Analysis: Crowder was a fourth-round draft pick out of Duke. In June, Crowder's Instagram feed briefly included photographs of a woman who said she was abused, and the Redskins and NFL said then that they were looking into the matter.
9/3/2015 DeVante Parker, Mia, WR
Parker made his exhibition season debut after recovering from foot surgery. He played briefly, was targeted three times and caught one pass for 11 yards for Miami (1-3).

Analysis: The receiver from Louisville took part in practice Monday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left foot in June, and it had been uncertain whether he would be available for the season opener next week.
9/3/2015 Jason Pierre-Paul, NYG, DE
Reports are surfacing that the embattled Pierre-Paul could re-join the Giants next week.

Analysis: Pierre-Paul foolishly hurt his right index finger during some July 4 fireworks tomfoolery. He has yet to meet with the club.
9/3/2015 Trindon Holliday, Oak, WR
Holliday was cut by Oakland.

Analysis: Holliday was signed by the Raiders in June.
9/3/2015 T.J. Ward, Den, S
Ward has been suspended for the first game of the 2015 regular season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Analysis: The Broncos say that Ward's suspension stems from misdemeanor charges dating back to an incident from May 2014. Those charges were later dropped.
9/3/2015 Davonte Wallace, Car, T
