Mike Williams caught a 25-yard touchdown in the Chargers' second preseason game.

Williams high-pointed a third-quarter fade for his touchdown. He started the Chargers' first preseason game, but played deep into the second half this week. Williams' target share is a concern behind Keenan Allen, but there's potential for him to make a red-zone impact.

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.

Ronald Jones had four carries for two yards in the Bucs' second preseason game.

It's another rough game from Jones, who has more carries than yards this preseason. Peyton Barber played ahead of Jones, and the Bucs used Jacquizz Rodgers over Jones in pass situations. Jones is trending down going into the third preseason game. He's going to open the year as a high-upside backup.

The Cowboys fear S Jameill Showers tore his ACL in Saturday night's preseason game.

He'll have an MRI on Monday to confirm. A college quarterback, Showers has carved out a career as a special teamer and doesn't see time on offense or defense.

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 TE Rico Gathers caught 2-of-3 passes for 32 yards in the Cowboys' second preseason game.

He led Dallas in receiving. Gathers had a highlight catch but was playing deep into the fourth quarter. It's still a positive step for a player on the roster bubble. Gathers could draw waiver interest if he doesn't make final cuts.

John Ross caught one pass for 29 yards in the Bengals' second preseason game.

Ross hasn't done much through the first two preseason games. He's been highly ineffective when targeted, catching 2-of-8 passes. Ross still looks like a project entering his second season, but he only has to hold off Tyler Boyd and Josh Malone to open the year opposite A.J. Green.

Texans WR Sammie Coates was concussed on Saturday night.

This will hurt his chances of making the team. A former third-round pick of the Steelers, Coates is shaping up as a journeyman backup-caliber deep threat.

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.

Bo Scarbrough suffered a hip injury in the Cowboys' second preseason game.

Scarbrough was getting an extended look with Ezekiel Elliott sitting out. He was having a solid preseason before going down, rushing for 31 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys may stash Scarbrough on IR if it's more than a day to day injury.
Aug 18 - 9:12 PM

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.

Texans CB Kevin Johnson suffered a concussion in Saturday night's preseason game.

Johnson has struggled with a variety of injuries since the Texans took him in the first round of the 2015 draft. Johnson is slated to start at right corner this year with Johnathan Joseph at LCB and Aaron Colvin in the slot.
Aug 18 - 8:24 PM

Cowboys RG Zack Martin suffered a knee injury in Saturday's preseason game.

Martin took a helmet to the knee and had to be helped to the locker room. It's another hit to the Cowboys offensive line with Travis Frederick already sidelined. There should be an update on Martin's status after the game.
