Redskins running back Samaje Perine sprained his ankle in Washington's second preseason game.
With Derrius Guice out for the season, Perine was in line to pick up a bigger load carrying the football. That may already be out the window depending on the severity of this injury. Rob Kelley will likely be the Redskins' early-down running back until further notice.
They referred to him as an RB but Cordarrelle Patterson's main contributions have come on special teams as a returner. It will be interesting to see how Atlanta plans to use the 30-year old this season. He's not currently on the fantasy radar aside from leagues with return points.
The @AZCardinals continued to pick up veteran free agents as they have signed former Steelers RB @JamesConner_ one day after he flew in for a visit.
This signing certainly takes some of the wind out of Chase Edmonds' sails. Conner has missed 12 games over the last three seasons, but when he's been healthy, he's been effective, averaging 4.0-4.5 YPC and averaging at least 71.5 total yards per game in each of the last three seasons. He's a dual-threat, soon-to-be 26-year-old back who is still in his prime. We'll see if he'll have a shot at the starting job, but at a minimum, he's going to be a headache for Edmonds' owners.
The #Patriots have terminated the contract of WR Julian Edelman, per the wire. He’s listed as a failed physical.
The Edelman era is over in New England. This is probably good news for the plethora of new pass-catchers that the Patriots acquired in free agency, including Nelson Agholor, Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith and Kendrick Bourne. As a free agent, Edelman probably doesn't have much gas left in the tank if he's failing physicals, but we'll see where he lands.
