Chicago Bears back at it after an off day. Big storyline this week is whether rookie Mitchell Trubisky takes any first team reps in practice or in Sunday's preseason game at Tennessee.

The Saints have agreed to terms with veteran special teams standout Bryan Braman, according to his agent, Sean Stellato. And they signed undrafted rookie cornerback/kick returner Elijah Mitchell from Nevada while waiving second-year center Jack Allen with an injury designation, according to Sean Payton. Braman, 30, spent the past three years with the Eagles and three years with the Texans before that. The 6-5, 241-pounder, who is listed as a DE/OLB, was a core special teams player in both spots.

Coach Jay Gruden praised defensive lineman Terrell McClain, saying he "loves" what he's doing. Gruden said he'll be a "major part of our rotation."

Redskins linebacker Junior Galette also returned, having missed the first two preseason games because of a hamstring injury. If all goes well this week he'd finally make his Redskins debut Sunday --after two years.

Coach Jay Gruden said he'd like to see tight end Jordan Reed play vs, Cincinnati on Sunday. It's not imperative but Gruden said they'd like him to "get some involvement in games before you play a (real) game."

Safety Eric Berry is scheduled to play for the Chiefs for the first time in the preseason on Friday night against the Seahawks in Seattle. Berry returned to practice only this week after missing a couple of weeks because of a sore heel but had three full days of work. Others scheduled to play for the Chiefs for the first time in the preseason: defensive linemen Chris Jones and Roy Miller.

Since fantasy owners seem concerned and have asked, no, I'm not adjusting the top-5 ranking overall or by position for Giants WR Odell Beckham because his sprained ankle could cost him a week or two of the regular season. Beckham has never produced much in past Septembers anyway. Still has had dominant seasons. Elite fantasy option.

For the second straight day, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty received the majority of the Jets' QB reps, ahead of Josh McCown. The breakdown: Hackenberg 19, Petty 15 and McCown nine. They did a two-minute drill walk through at the end, and McCown took those reps. This is a strange competition.

Kyle Murphy -- not Jason Spriggs -- in for Bryan Bulaga at right tackle. Bulaga has not returned to the field after limping off.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Cardinals defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche has a strained calf and will be day-to-day, coach Bruce Arians said. Nkemdiche will be in a walking boot for the time being and will not play Saturday in Atlanta. Arians doesn't think the injury will set Nkemdiche back.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Devonta Freeman will not play Saturday vs. Cardinals coming off concussion protocol.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

No setbacks for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton after two days of throwing, according to the team. The 2015 NFL MVP will make his preseason debut on Thursday night against Jacksonville. Wide receiver Curtis Samuel, a second-round pick out of Ohio State, also is expected to suit up for the first time this preseason.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Notable No. 2 at practice: Brett Jones snuck in a few first-team snaps at right guard. Interesting. John Jerry remained the primary starting RG.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Bryan Bulaga just limped off the practice field. Taken inside with an apparent lower leg issue.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Ben McAdoo didn't have much to add on Odell Beckham Jr. He has an ankle injury and is day to day.

An up close look at the 1-on-1 pass rush/pass block drill.
