Bengals also waived RB Stanley Williams and WR Karel Hamilton. Neither had a realistic shot at making the team. Marvin Lewis said the team would not stay at 90 until final cuts. Releasing these players now gives them a chance to find another team.

Bengals released DT Brandon Thompson, who spent all last season rehabbing from a torn ACL. Thompson was a reserve DT for the Bengals from 2012-2015 but never found a bigger role. Lots of tough decisions to make, especially on the defensive line.

This is no surprise after he threw two touchdown passes on Saturday night against the Bengals, but rookie Patrick Mahomes II will remain as the Chiefs No. 2 quarterback at least for another week. The Chiefs continue their preseason against the Seahawks on Friday night in Seattle. The Chiefs were hopeful but not certain that Mahomes, their first-round draft pick, would be able to handle everything being thrown at him after playing in a spread offensive system in college at Texas Tech. "You're not sure until they get here," coach Andy Reid said. "You hear about the work ethic and all that but it's just different at this level… It's a matter of that effort and that's kind of the unknown. I've been very pleased with that part of it. He's a relentless worker. He wants to be the best. All those intangible things you kind of hear about but you really don't know until you have them, he's kind of answered that part. It's important he stays on top of it. Every day is a new experience for him. He hasn't been through this before."

Andy Reid said safety Eric Berry would probably get some work in practice this week and perhaps play on Friday night against the Seahawks depending on how he fares. "I'm being a little bit conservative in that area," Reid said. "I think we know what he can do. But at the same time I want to make sure he's comfortable going into our first game against New England." Berry hasn't practiced or played for a couple weeks because of what the Chiefs are calling a heel injury. "He's a determined guy," Reid said. "We might have to put the clamps on him a little bit because he's full throttle when he's out there."

Through 15 practices and two games, this is the unofficial tally for the Jets' quarterbacks: Christian Hackenberg 365 snaps, Josh McCown 332 and Bryce Petty 227. All things considered, that's about as even as could be expected.

Coach Andy Reid said there was a possibility the Chiefs might keep their top four running backs. "If we only keep three, then somebody's going to get a heck of a player," Reid said. Spencer Ware is the starter and rookie Kareem Hunt is the top reserve. C.J. Spiller and Charcandrick West are competing to be the No. 3 back. West had runs of 50, 27 and 25 yards in Saturday night's win over the Bengals. "if we can keep all four, then that's great," Reid said.

We'll see if he pans out, but last night reinforced how much better of a position to succeed Jared Goff is in now. Coaching, system, roster.

The Broncos are not expected to have an on-field practice Monday, but are expected to bring the players in for meetings, treatment and weight-room work. The team's usual practice time would have been during the solar eclipse.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer

Defensive end Adam Gotsis led all players on defense with 32 snaps as linebacker Kasim Edebali and defensive end Zach Kerr each finished with 29.

Bills starting right tackle Jordan Mills will be limited in practice Sunday with an ankle contusion. With left tackle Cordy Glenn (foot) and backup Michael Ola not practicing, Bills are dealing with some injuries at tackle.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Sunday the Bills are "cautiously optimistic" about LT Cordy Glenn (foot), but that rookie Dion Dawkins will see more time in practice on the left side as a contingency plan.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Sunday that WR Jordan Matthews (sternum) and LT Cordy Glenn (foot) are both improving. They are listed as week-to-week. McDermott said the Bills are still evaluating WR Rod Streater, who injured his toe in last week's preseason game.

Ravens running back Danny Woodhead got "banged up" in last preseason game, coach John Harbaugh said. He hasn't practiced the past two days. "We're holding him out right now," Harbaugh said.
