Bill O'Brien continues to be clear: "Tom [Savage] is the starter." "Tom is playing well this camp. Tom has really had a good camp. He's only thrown three incompletions in two games. He's really got good command of our offense. "Like I've said, Deshaun [Watson] is a very, very good young player who has a great future in this league, let's put the cards on the table. That's what it is. But Tom has been here for four years. The way we want to play, the style we need to play relative to getting guys lined up, relative to cadence, relative to protection points and route reads and putting guys in the right spot, Tom is ahead of Deshaun on that."

El entrenador de los Dallas Cowboys Jason Garrett asegura que aún no deciden si Zeke Elliott jugará el próximo sábado contra los Oakland Raiders en su cuarto y penúltimo juego de pretemporada. El que está fuera para enfrentar a los Raiders es el ala cerrada Rico Gathers porque aún está en el protocolo de conmociones cerebrales por golpe que sufrió la semana pasada en entrenamiento. Tampoco jugará el sábado el esquinero novato Jourdan Lewis, seleccionado en la tercera ronda del draft; aún convalece del tirón muscular en la corva.

Jets RB Matt Forte, who hasn't participated in team drills since July 31 because of a pulled hamstring, is running routes in positional drills. The sense I get is that he'll be ready for Week 1.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor reacts to the retirement of WR Anquan Boldin and whether he is being set up to fail by lack of receivers around him.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn plans to take it through the week with Julio Jones before deciding if he'll play vs. Cardinals on Saturday. Jones hasn't play in the first two exhibitions after March foot surgery.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cardinals activated linebacker Deone Bucannon (ankle) from the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday. He was placed on PUP on July 21. Coach Bruce Arians said on Monday that when Bucannon is activated it'll be so he can go through walk throughs. It's likely he'll start practicing next week.

Cardinals activated LB Deone Bucannon from PUP, and Patriots did same with LB Dont'a Hightower. Two LBs back.

"If you're talking about draft day passion, we probably don't see that every day," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said playfully about first round draft pick Takkarist McKinley.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Devonta Freeman is at the end of the concussion protocol but won't be back to practice today. Rookie Damontae Kazee is out this week with an ankle injury

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Don't look for tight end Rico Gathers to play Saturday against the Oakland Raiders. He remains in the concussion protocol.

Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

Jason Garrett says he has not made a decision yet on whether Ezekiel Elliott will play in this Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

New Chargers DE Whitney Richardson is wearing No. 65.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions HC Jim Caldwell said the joint walk through with the Patriots is off because of how a joint practice would be classified.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions HC Jim Caldwell on run game: Mentions at least 100 yards a game as a barometer. Said they don't need 150 yards a game but need to be "respectable" there. Lions have not had a strong run game since his arrival.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers offensive depth chart for Colts game...Le'Veon Bell and Maurkice Pouncey labeled as out as of today. Fitz Toussaint holding onto No. 1 RB job. His chances to make the team are good regardless of whether James Conner moves up depth chart.
