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

Gordon is still in 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.

Carson Wentz (knee) has been cleared for 11-on-11 team drills.

Coach Doug Pederson said Wentz would need at least a week of team drills to be ready for the start of the season. It's an encouraging step for Wentz, though he did some limited team work early in training camp. With Nick Foles sidelined the rest of the preseason, the Eagles are ramping up Wentz's activity. Wentz looks on track for Week 1.

Dalvin Cook (knee) won't play in the Vikings' second preseason game.

Cook was also held out of the preseason opener. The Vikings are avoiding setback risks with Cook 10 months removed from ACL surgery. Cook went through pre-game warmups and has reportedly "looked great" in practice. He should be cleared for the Vikings' dress rehearsal next week.

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said Christian Kirk has "created some separation" for the No. 2 receiver job.

Chad Williams also drew praise after struggling with training camp drops. Brice Butler's injury was an opportunity for Kirk to do some depth-chart climbing, and he responded by leading the Cardinals in receiving against the Saints. Kirk played with the first-team offense, but scored his touchdown on a highlight from Josh Rosen. The Cardinals are making Kirk compete with middling wideouts behind Larry Fitzgerald, but his starting chances are trending up going into the third preseason game.

Jonathan Williams saw reps with the first-team offense in the Saints' second preseason game.

Williams ran for 37 yards on eight carries but missed a first-half blitz pickup. There's been some buzz on Williams over the last week, and he looks to have jumped Terrance West on the depth chart. Williams has a chance for an early-season role until Mark Ingram (suspension) returns.

Mike Gesicki was held without a catch in the Dolphins' second preseason game.

Gesicki started for the second straight week but wasn't targeted. Miami's first-team offense has been a mess under Ryan Tannehill, failing to score a touchdown in both preseason games. With Kenny Stills banged up and DeVante Parker struggling, the Dolphins need to get Gesicki more involved.

Chad Williams caught 3-of-4 targets for 44 yards in the Cardinals' second preseason game.

Williams got more run with the first-team offense with Brice Butler sidelined. He was outplayed by Christian Kirk, but this was a step in the right direction. There should be some clarity on the Cardinals' depth chart behind Larry Fitzgerald after the third preseason game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Bills DT Kyle Williams (knee) has avoided an ACL injury.

Williams will have an MRI to confirm, but it's good news after he left the stadium in a full-length brace. The injury will likely still sideline Williams into the regular season. Adolphus Washington and Star Lotulelei are going to open the year as Buffalo's starting tackles.

ESPN's Mike Rodak believes it's too early to consider Josh Allen a "lock" to start Week 1.

Allen crushed his first two preseason appearances, completing 18-of-32 passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns. He hasn't had many first-team training camp reps but is in the driver seat to start with A.J. McCarron (collarbone) out. Allen still needs to hold off Nathan Peterman — a favorite of coach Sean McDermott. Allen looks likely to start next week's dress rehearsal but both quarterbacks should see time with the top offense.
Aug 18 - 10:17 AM

Nathan Peterman completed 8-of-10 passes for 113 yards and a touchown in Buffalo's second preseason game.

Peterman did all of his damage against third-stringers. A.J. McCarron started, but Josh Allen stole the show again this week — leading the Bills to scoring drives on all three of his series. With McCarron sidelined, Buffalo's quarterback battle is down to Allen and Peterman. Allen is in line to start the third preseason game.

Antonio Callaway was held without a catch in Cleveland's second preseason game.

It's a step back after Callaway went off for 87 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener. Callaway has a chance for a big role with Josh Gordon's status up in the air, but his outlook is clouded by Cleveland's interest in Dez Bryant and a potential suspension. The Browns have stood behind Callaway and believed he's stayed clean despite his latest off-field setback.
Aug 18 - 9:49 AM

Corey Coleman caught one pass for seven yards in his Bills preseason debut.

Coleman was a non-factor playing with the second-team offense. He's reportedly struggled with the playbook since coming over from Cleveland but should have an inside track to a roster spot . Andre Holmes and Zay Jones were also held to just one catch against the Browns.
Aug 18 - 9:31 AM

Bills DT Kyle Williams left Friday's preseason game against the Browns with a right knee injury.

He left the stadium wearing a full-length brace on his right leg. Friday was a brutal injury night for the Bills, who also lost quarterback A.J. McCarron to a broken collarbone. The 35-year-old registered one tackle prior to exiting.
Aug 17 - 11:22 PM

Chiefs CB Steven Nelson left Friday's preseason game against the Falcons with a concussion.

He exited in the first quarter after getting kicked in the head by Austin Hooper. It's hard to put a timeline on brain injuries, though Nelson should have a chance to be ready for the start of the regular season in three weeks. When healthy, Nelson will likely start opposite David Amerson with Kendall Fuller manning the slot.
