Nyheim Hines rushed five times for 12 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in the Colts' second preseason game Monday night.

Hines' biggest error was a lost fumble on the opening kickoff of the second half; he's now fumbled four times through two preseason games, which is a large concern for the rookie. He's never going to see the field if he can't hang onto the ball, and Hines was working behind all three of Christine Michael, Jordan Wilkins, and Josh Ferguson at running back this evening. He's lightyears away from fantasy relevance as a rookie. The coaches simply can't trust him at the moment.

Panthers LT Matt Kalil (knee) will visit Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday.

Dr. Andrews is a renowned knee surgeon who handles most ACL operations in sports. He scoped both of Kalil's knees in 2015. The Panthers are counting on Kalil to bounce back this season, especially after the team already lost RT Daryl Williams to a dislocated kneecap and torn MCL earlier this summer. Carolina's offensive line is in complete shambles right now.

Andrew Luck completed just 6-of-13 passes for 50 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Colts' second preseason game against the Ravens on Monday.

It was big step back for Luck after he was 6-of-9 for 64 yards in his preseason debut last week. Luck threw a brutal red-zone interception on the Colts' first series this evening on a third-down pass he tried to force to Jack Doyle. He later gathered himself, completing a pair of third-down throws, but that drive fizzled out before Adam Vinatieri came on for a 57-yard field goal. Luck is now 12-of-22 for 114 yards, no touchdowns, and one pick this exhibition season.

Joe Flacco completed 7-of-9 passes for 72 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' third preseason game against the Colts on Monday.

By all accounts, Flacco has been having the best summer of his career, and the Ravens using a first-rounder on Lamar Jackson has lit a fire under 33-year-old Flacco. Through two preseason games, he's 12-of-16 for 143 yards and two scores with no picks. On Monday against the Colts, Flacco hit Michael Crabtree in a tight window down the sideline for a 29-yard pickup before finishing off the drive with a seven-yard touchdown to John Brown. Flacco's rekindled fire along with the Ravens' much improved pass-game weaponry may make Flacco a useful QB2 at times.

Rams ILB Mark Barron (shoulder) returned to practice Monday.

Barron underwent offseason shoulder surgery and had been sidelined most of training camp. The goal is for Barron to be ready for the Week 1 opener.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens "are bracing for" a multi-week suspension for CB Jimmy Smith.

Apparently, the team is already aware of the ban, and Smith is currently appealing it with the league. It stems from a violation of the personal conduct policy. Smith has been involved in a custody battle, and his ex accused him of illegal drug use and domestic violence last year, though no criminal charges have been handed down in the matter. Smith has missed 17 games over the past four years and was suspended four games last year for a PEDs violation.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets want a "significant" return if they're going to trade Teddy Bridgewater.

Per Rapsheet, no team is viewing Bridgewater as a starter in trade talks at the moment. There just haven't been any significant injuries at the position around the league to open up one of the 32 jobs for Bridgewater. With demand low, the Jets may be wise to sit on Bridgewater into the regular season.

Isaiah Crowell has cleared the league's concussion protocol and practiced Monday.

He missed the Jets' second preseason game with the injury. Crowell should be in the lineup for the third preseason tilt where the Jets will attempt to solidify a Week 1 plan for their backfield. Crowell is attempting to win the lead job.

Updating a previous report, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports A.J. McCarron did not suffer a broken collarbone in the Bills' second preseason and will return to practice "soon."

Okay then. It was reported Friday night that McCarron suffered the broken collarbone earlier that evening after getting hit from behind and driven into the ground by Myles Garrett. But tests were inconclusive, according to coach Sean McDermott, and it sounds like McCarron will not miss nearly the 2-3 months a broken collarbone would have cost him. We still doubt McCarron plays in the Bills' third preseason game, and it has already been announced Josh Allen will start that one.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports first-rounder Josh Allen will start the Bills' third preseason game against the Bengals.

So, Allen gets the nod in the Bills' dress rehearsal, signaling he's firmly in charge atop the depth chart following the shoulder injury suffered by A.J. McCarron over the weekend. Allen has had a mostly-solid preseason thus far, completing better than 56% of his passes at a 5.5 YPA clip with two touchdowns. Allen is the heavy favorite to start Week 1 on the road against the Ravens. Nathan Peterman would be the No. 2. The Ravens' D/ST will be a top streaming option.

Cowboys signed DL Caraun Reid.

The 26-year-old was let go by Indianapolis on Saturday. He'll replace DL Richard Ash, who is headed to I.R. with a knee injury. A fourth-round pick out of Princeton (Jason Garrett's alma mater) in 2014, Reid has now been on six teams including three last year alone.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is hopeful seventh-round RB Bo Scarbrough (hip) will be able to do "something" at Monday's practice.

The Alabama alum exited Saturday's preseason game with a hip injury, though it was never thought to be serious. It would probably take an injury to Ezekiel Elliott for Scarbrough to get on the fantasy radar.
Aug 20 - 5:55 PM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett expects Cole Beasley (groin) to resume practicing "some time" this week.

Garrett also expects to see Tavon Austin (hamstring) back at practice this week. A groin injury cost Beasley the Cowboys' first two preseason games, though he's hoping to see work in Sunday's dress rehearsal against the Cardinals. Even with little competition for targets in Dallas, Beasley is unlikely to emerge as a fantasy factor this year.
Aug 20 - 5:53 PM

According to Mike Kaye of the First Coast News, Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole have received the "majority" of starter reps throughout training camp.

Dede Westbrook and second-round rookie D.J. Chark have also been "standouts" while free-agent signing Donte Moncrief has struggled with inconsistency. Lee, who returned to the Jags on a four-year deal this offseason, led the team in both targets (96) and catches (56) last season, though Cole excelled down the stretch, totaling 475 yards with three touchdowns over his final five regular season games. In a crowded Jaguars receiving corps, Lee and Cole would seem to be the best bets for fantasy success.
Aug 20 - 5:28 PM

Raiders UDFA K Eddy Pineiro is out with a groin injury.

The injury kept him out of Saturday's preseason game against the Rams. Pineiro and Mike Nugent are competing for kicking responsibilities in Oakland.
