Free agent DE Julius Peppers is recovering from right shoulder surgery.

The operation was to repair a torn labrum, which can come with a fairly-lengthy recovery timeline. Peppers dealt with the issue during the season but didn't miss any time. Stunningly, Peppers has missed just two games with injury in 16 NFL seasons. Now 38, Peppers is undecided if he will return for 2018.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said there's "a chance" Josh Gordon will be ready for the team's season opener against the Steelers on September 9.

He reported to the Browns facility on Saturday after missing the first few weeks of camp while tending to his "overall health." Gordon trained on his own in Florida during his time off, though he still needs to get back into playing shape. "His focus is going to be on meetings and conditioning and then we'll just kind of go from there," said Jackson. "Hopefully, we can get him up and running by the first game." The 27-year-old likely won't suit up versus the Eagles on Thursday, though he could see some action in Cleveland's preseason finale the week after against Detroit. Now that he's back, Gordon is safe to draft as a borderline WR2 in all leagues.

Chiefs signed CB Orlando Scandrick, formerly of the Redskins, to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Scandrick was let go by Washington last week. He fills a need for the Chiefs, who are looking thin in the secondary following the offseason departures of Marcus Peters (traded to the Rams) and Terrence Mitchell (signed with Cleveland). Steven Nelson's concussion Friday night likely created an even greater sense of urgency. In KC, Scandrick will likely back up Kendall Fuller at slot corner.

Trey Burton caught 4-of-5 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' third preseason game Saturday night.

Burton got all of his production in barely over a quarter. Built more like a wide receiver than tight end, Burton projects to play a major role in Chicago's revamped passing game, where Mitchell Trubisky excelled targeting the middle of the field as a rookie. Burton will run roughly half of his routes in the slot. He looked like Trubisky's go-to guy in Saturday night's exhibition.

Taywan Taylor caught 4-of-4 targets for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans' second preseason game Saturday night.

Taylor's highlight-reel play was a 47-yard touchdown on a screen pass where he outraced everyone on the field to the house. His second TD came deep in the red zone from three yards out. Taylor has played more first-team reps than any Titans receiver so far in training camp and is a recommended late-round flyer.

Royce Freeman had six carries for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' second preseason game.

Freeman played in a first-team timeshare with Devontae Booker. He outgained Booker and looked to be the preferred red-zone option, converting a goal-line carry for his second touchdown of the preseason. Freeman isn't going to play much on pass downs, but he has workhorse traits. It won't be surprising if the Broncos give Freeman the start in their third preseason game.

Cowboys RG Zack Martin (knee) will have an MRI on Sunday.

Martin limped off after a helmet-to-knee hit in the first half. It's not a good sign he needs an MRI, but Martin was reportedly walking fine on the sidelines. With Travis Frederick sidelined, losing Martin would be another blow to the Cowboys' offensive line.

Bears TE Adam Shaheen was carted off the field with a right ankle injury in Saturday night's preseason game.

Shaheen made a short catch, then drew a helmet to the leg. He came off hobbling and was eventually carted to the locker room. Shaheen has been having a solid camp and preseason after turning in an underrated rookie campaign.

Free agent RB Orleans Darkwa will work out for the Redskins on Sunday.

The Redskins are desperate for running backs with Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall going down last week. Coming off a career 2017, there hasn't been much interest in Darkwa due to May leg surgery but he's fully healthy. He would give Washington a veteran to push Rob Kelley.

Bucs RB Charles Sims exited Saturday's preseason game with a left knee injury and will not return.

He was immediately ruled out, which isn't a good sign. Sims got injured on the game's opening kickoff. Sims is the Bucs' third-down back. If he misses extended time, Peyton Barber could take on a bigger role in the passing game.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy reports Josh Gordon hasn't been cleared to practice.

Gordon is still in Stage 3 of the league's substance abuse program and needs to pass certain conditions before practicing. It's possible not meeting the conditions are why Gordon delayed reporting to training camp. The league "doesn't have a timetable" on Gordon's next step. Gordon can attend meetings and do off-field work, but he's not out of the woods yet.

Josh Gordon has reported to the Browns' training camp.

Gordon is expected to attend practice Sunday after skipping the first three weeks of camp for health reasons. The Browns have supported Gordon throughout the process and are welcoming him back. It's a strange situation that Gordon didn't get help before the preseason, but there's been nothing to suggest he's in trouble with the league. Gordon will be moved slowly but has enough time to be on the field for Week 1. Gordon's return should end Cleveland's pursuit of Dez Bryant.
