      McCown completed 17 of 23 passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns, adding three carries for 20 yards, in Saturday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

      Analysis: McCown played into the third quarter before giving way to Thaddeus Lewis. The highlight was a 16-play, 80-yard drive in the first quarter that featured a pair of McCown scrambles for first downs. Likely done for the preseason, McCown should enjoy working behind a strong offensive line, but he arguably has the league's worst supporting cast at the skill positions.

      Steward left Saturday's game against the Steelers with a knee injury and did not return, reports.

      Analysis: The Bills have a very good defense, but suddenly they could find themselves quite thin with linebacker depth, as Steward has recently been tabbed to potentially fill a key backup role after Ty Powell was lost for the season.

      Wootton collected two sacks in the Lions' preseason win over Jacksonville on Friday.

      Analysis: After starting his career in Chicago and then Minnesota, Wootton is continuing his tour of the NFC North this summer with Detroit, but may not be around for much longer. Despite his strong performance on Friday, Wootton looks to be on the outside looking in just based off of the number of teammates he's competing with. With Ziggy Ansah, Jason Jones, Devin Taylor and Darryl Tapp all all but guaranteed a roster spot, Wootton finds himself competing with Larry Webster and Phillip Hunt for the fifth defensive end spot - presuming Detroit carries five defensive ends.

      Ryan completed three of seven passes for 49 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

      Analysis: Julio Jones was held out of the game after agreeing to a five-year extension, and fellow wide receiver Roddy White (knee) remains sidelined. Fortunately for Ryan, the 33-year-old White is expected back for Week 1, though his age and recent injury history remain major causes of concern. Between White, the running back situation, the No. 3 WR job and the offensive line, Atlanta's offense has no shortage of question marks. Of course, the prolific Ryan-Jones combo can hide a lot of weaknesses.

      Johnson sustained a concussion during Saturday's game at Tampa Bay.

      Analysis: After such a diagnosis, Johnson will enter the NFL's concussion protocol, which could wipe away any chance for the rookie to have at least a modest workload in Week 1. Expect Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West to pick up the slack, or at least act as the Browns' top running back options, in Johnson's absence.
