Cordy Glenn Headshot

Glenn, who has missed a good chunk of training camp and the preseason due to a foot injury, is back practicing Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

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.

E.J. Gaines Headshot

Gaines, who missed practice time earlier in the week due to a hamstring injury, is back practicing Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

Gaines will now get back to competing with Shareece Wright and Kevon Seymour for a starting corner spot across from first-round rookie Tre'Davious White.
11:32 am (EST)
Jonathan Williams Headshot

Williams, who missed Tuesday's practice due to a minor knee injury, is back practicing Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

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.
11:29 am (EST)
Demarcus Lawrence Headshot

Lawrence was one of the top performers in Tuesday's practice sessions, beating Tyron Smith in one-on-one drills and also getting the best of La'el Collins and Chaz Green, DallasCowboys.com reports.

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.

Breshad Perriman Headshot

Perriman (hamstring) still isn't practicing, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

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.
11:21 am (EST)
Allen Hurns Headshot

Hurns may be on the trade block, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

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.
11:16 am (EST)
Devontae Booker Headshot

Booker (wrist) should return somewhere near the start of the season and still figures to have a place in Denver's running back rotation, Nick Kosmider of The Denver Post reports.

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.
11:09 am (EST)
Brock Osweiler Headshot

Osweiler isn't expected to play at all in Saturday's preseason game against Tampa Bay, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Browns coach Hue Jackson named DeShone Kizer as the starter for the team's dress rehearsal, seemingly setting the rookie up for the Week 1 starting gig if he can avoid falling flat on his face Saturday night. It's unclear why Osweiler is being held out completely, but it may just be that the team wants to get another look at Cody Kessler and/or Kevin Hogan after Kizer is removed from the game. Given that his $16 million base salary is guaranteed, Osweiler doesn't seem likely to be released or traded before the season.
10:55 am (EST)
Emmanuel Sanders Headshot

Sanders (shoulder) returned to practice Tuesday as a full participant, Erin Powell of 9 News Denver reports.

Sanders was absent from practice for less than a week and only missed one preseason game. He was actually involved in a minor car accident on his way to the team's facility Tuesday morning, but it didn't stop him from participating in all activities in his first practice since last Wednesday. Sanders will open the season catching passes from Trevor Siemian, who recently was declared the winner of Denver's quarterback battle. Sanders actually had slightly better production with Paxton Lynch under center last season, averaging six catches for 65.3 yards on 10.3 targets in the three games the rookie played, compared to 4.7 catches for 64.3 yards on 8.3 targets in the other 13 games. That said, Siemian's victory in the QB competition seems like good news for both Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
10:47 am (EST)
Michael Bowie Headshot

The Giants waived Bowie on Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Star-Ledger reports.

The transaction comes just days after Bowie was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Giants general manager Jerry Reese noted that the NFL is still gathering more information regarding the incident that prompted Bowie's arrest, so if the offensive tackle is ultimately cleared of any discipline from the league, New York wouldn't necessarily close the door on re-signing him.
