There's a chance Glenn is limited and remains that way, while the Bills have continued confidence their starting left tackle will be ready for Week 1. Glenn's presence is quite important toward any offensive success the team hopes to have.
As expected, this was just a minor ailment and the second-year player will get right back to it. Williams remains the handcuff to LeSean McCoy, and given McCoy's age and perhaps a plan for the Bills to keep his body away from goal-line scrums, a decent fantasy sleeper in what looks to be a run-based offense.
The Cowboys took it easy on Lawrence through the early part of camp as he made his recovery from January back surgery, and their patience seems to be paying off as the fourth-year DE looks more and more dangerous on the rush. He led the team in sacks in 2015, and if he can stay healthy this season Lawrence should be able to give the Cowboys a much-needed boost to their defensive line.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said last Tuesday that the wideout was on schedule in his recovery and could make an appearance at some point during the preseason. It seems that appearance would have to come in the preseason finale, as Perriman still hasn't returned to practice with just three days remaining until Saturday's exhibition against the Bills. At this point, it's fair to wonder if Perriman is in danger of missing Week 1 against the Bengals. He should still be locked in as the team's No. 3 wide receiver whenever he's available.
Signed to a four-year, $40 million contract last offseason, Hurns was ineffective and plagued by injuries throughout a 2016 season in which Marqise Lee (ankle) enjoyed a breakout. With the Jags now aiming for a run-heavy approach and also adding wideout Dede Westbrook in the fourth round of the draft, it's easy to see how Hurns has so quickly become expendable. Of course, the team probably won't just give him away for a late-round pick -- particularly not while Lee is sidelined with a high-ankle sprain. The Jags might consider moving Hurns for a middle-round pick or offensive line help.
After tossing 64 pitches in his second rehab start with Toledo on Monday, Norris could have his pitch count bumped up to the 80-to-85 range Saturday in what's expected to be his final outing in the minors before he's activated from the 10-day disabled list. Norris exhibited control issues his last time out with Toledo, but if he's able to make progress in that regard while working deeper into the start, he should be in line to reenter the Tigers' rotation Sept. 1 for one half of their doubleheader that day with the Indians. Norris has compiled a 5.29 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over 85 innings with the big club this season.
C.J. Anderson appears locked in as the Week 1 starter, with Booker tentatively expected to fill the No. 2 role once he's available. Sixth-round rookie De'Angelo Henderson has made a case this preseason for some kind of involvement, and veteran Jamaal Charles hopes to do the same Saturday against the Packers in what will be his lone appearance of the exhibition schedule. Given his rookie-year struggles and the depth of competition, Booker may have serious competition for backup work upon rejoining the team. His Week 1 status remains up in the air, but it doesn't sound like he's in danger of missing more than a couple games.
Harvey's statistical results over his three minor-league rehab appearances have been acceptable (3.86 ERA, 6:2 K:BB over seven innings), but his fastball velocity has hovered around the high 80s and low 90s in those outings, well below the 93-to-94 mile-per-hour range he had been hitting prior to landing on the DL. In addition to having Harvey work deeper into games, the Mets likely want to see him gain a couple ticks before turning his loose against major-league hitters. He'll look to toss 80 to 85 pitches in his next rehab outing, which should come over the weekend with Double-A Binghamton or Triple-A Las Vegas.
Shoulder issues have kept Ogando on the disabled list all season, with the right-hander having been limited to four rehab appearances in the minors as hie lone game action. After pitching three times in six days with the Reds' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate, Ogando will test himself against higher-quality competition as he looks to prove to the organization that he's back to full strength. Ogando was a fringe candidate to land a bullpen job with the Reds out of spring training even if health had prevailed, so once he's activated from the 60-day DL, there's a good chance he'll immediately be optioned to Triple-A Louisville.
