J.J. Watt Headshot

J.J. Watt (back) expects to participate in practice next week.

This would fall right on time with his 6-to-10 week timeline as next week marks the sixth week since Watt had surgery on his back. If he does participate, it'll be at half speed or off to the side. The Texans won't do anything to risk the best defensive player in football in an August practice.

Jeremy Langford Headshot

Jeremy Langford (foot) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

After getting stepped on, Langford was seen wearing a walking boot but was able to shed it a day later. Now, just a few days later, he's practicing in full. The boot was precautionary as the Bears are heading into the all important third preseason game. Langford still projects as the starting tailback, but he did nothing last season that screams "game changer." Fortunately for Langford, he doesn't have a whole lot of competition behind him, so his job is fairly safe. He should be considered a middle of the pack RB2 heading into the season.

Zach Miller Headshot

Zach Miller (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice. He was also wearing a red jersey.

The good thing is, he's cleared to partake in practice. He'll be fine in the long run as the Bears brass are easing him into playing shape. Miller, as he was in 2015, heads into '16 as one of the teams best pass catching options. Miller got into the end zone five times last season and he was the second TE on the depth chart. This season he's the number one option in Chicago and is poised to double that total. Miller could end up being a top-five fantasy TE by seasons end if he stays healthy. The position is weak so it's not that big of a stretch.

Victor Cruz Headshot

Giants are very optimistic Victor Cruz plays against the Jets Saturday.

Cruz's injury issues over the past couple of years have been well documented, but he appears to be on the verge of seeing his first game action since October 2014. Cruz averaged 80 receptions, 1,209 yards and eight touchdowns per season from 2011-'13. He is looking for a big comeback in 2016, but only time will tell if he can be successful in that endeavor.

Dorial Green-Beckham Headshot

Doug Pederson says Dorial Green-Beckham has shown "special" things in practice during the week.

Green-Beckham is expected to line up with the Eagles' first-team offense for this weekend's preseason game against the Colts. The second-year wide receiver is beginning to appear more and more like a potential sleeper headed into fantasy drafts.

De'Anthony Thomas Headshot

De'Anthony Thomas may not make the Chiefs' 53-man roster.

Thomas has yet to make much of an impact for the Chiefs on offense since the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2014 Draft. The 23-year-old speedster has nice abilities in the return game, but has not yet moved up the Chiefs' wide receiver ranks.

Marco Hernandez Headshot

Marco Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

With Andrew Benintendi (ankle) hitting the DL, Hernandez is being called up to fill the void. Hernandez, who has posted a .295/.367/.386 slash line across 49 plate appearances in the bigs this season, will most likely fill a bench role for the Red Sox.

Joe Reitz Headshot

Joe Reitz is questionable for Saturday's preseason game.

Reitz is dealing with some back soreness and his status is up in the air for Saturday's game against the Eagles. Reitz started 14-of-16 games for the Colts last season, manning various spots on the offensive line.

Dwayne Allen Headshot

Dwayne Allen is not practicing Thursday.

Allen is just simply getting a day of rest. as he is expected to be a full go for the Colts' third preseason game against the Eagles later this week.
