Rams DT Ethan Westbrooks passed his physical and was removed from the Non-Football Injury list Thursday.

Westbrooks is a rookie that will attempt to crack the Rams' 53-man roster. It is more likely that he will fill a practice squad role.

Giants DE Robert Ayers suffered an ankle injury in practice Thursday.

Ayers did limp off the field under his own power, so that is one positive to take away from this news. At this point, he will likely miss a few days, but his injury isn't thought to be serious.

Jaguars WR Allen Robinson did not practice Thursday as he deals with a hamstring injury.

This isn't thought to be a serious issue and this should only be viewed as a precautionary measure. The rookie wideout is expected to have a relatively big role with Jacksonville this year and they will want him healthy for the start of the season.

Chiefs CB Sanders Commings will undergo surgery for a broken ankle.

This will likely keep Commings out of action for some time. Commings would have seen plenty of action in the Chiefs' secondary.

Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said WR Stephen Hill has been "outstanding" in training camp.

It's great to hear this, but having an outstanding camp and translating that into the regular season are two different things. The third-year wideout could impress this season if he becomes a favorite of Geno Smith, who is likely to win the starting quarterback job.

Steelers TE Rob Blanchflower is expected to miss at least one week because of a high ankle sprain.

This injury opens up a spot for undrafted free agent tight end Eric Waters to impress the Steelers brass. Blanchflower can't afford to miss too much time, but he will most certainly be on the shelf for the next week.

The Indianapolis Colts re-signed T Eric Pike.

Pike is a undrafted free agent that was previously signed with the Colts earlier this season before being released. Pike has a shot to make the team because of the injury to Donald Thomas, but the odds are against him.

Prosecutors dropped a misdemeanor case against Ravens rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro, who was charged with destruction of property and being drunk in public.

It is nice to have high-priced attorneys. While Taliaferro was able to escape any type of charges, he was still arrested and that is a big problem in the NFL. Let's hope this is a one time thing and Taliaferro has learned his lesson.

Pat Angerer suffered a head injury during practice Tuesday and has yet to be cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Concussions are a serious matter in this day and age and the Falcons won't risk Angerer's health. Once cleared, Angerer will be a solid contributor on the field, but he return date at this point is anyone's guess.

Giants CB Bennett Jackson suffered a left leg injury during practice Thursday.

Jackson rolled his ankle and was immediately taken for X-Rays. It is unknown at this time the extent of his injuries, but the Giants are certainly concerned. We should have a clearer outlook on Friday.
