Buffalo Bills starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore will not return after hurting his right shoulder in a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday. The Bills also announced that tests revealed Gilmore did not sustain a concussion. The Steelers are down another kicker after Garrett Hartley hurt his right hamstring during a kickoff.
Peyton Manning hasn't had his pair of Pro Bowl receivers on the field with him since the playoffs. Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) is sitting this one out and Demaryius Thomas is still working his way into ''football shape'' after missing the entire offseason program in a contract dispute. In his debut last week, Manning's four drives all ended in punts thanks to drops and flags.
Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle R.J. Dill has been suspended for the first four games of the season due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Dill, 25, was undrafted out of Rutgers in 2013 and had short stints with the Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams. - - Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter, initially charged with felony malicious wounding for his involvement in a bar fight in July, has had the charge reduced to misdemeanor assault and battery.
The folks at StubHub have cross-referenced their NFL ticket sales with people in those various cities purchasing concert tickets and, wham bam, we have a pretty fun list. Yes, these musical acts are the ones that NFL fans are most flocking to in each of the 32 areas. Here they are: Arizona Cardinals — U2 Larry Mullen Jr. is huge in the desert, apparently. Atlanta Falcons — The Rolling Stones What, no Widespread Panic? Baltimore Ravens — Florida-Georgia Line Geographically confused fans. Buffalo Bills — Garth Brooks Guessing Rex named-dropped him in his opening press conference or something. (Saving "Friends In Low Places" joke for later.)

She's like the Panthers: You don't want to give them respect, but at some point you just relent.
LAS VEGAS — It's fantasy football draft season, so I begged until they sent me to I'm in Vegas for the Yahoo Fantasy Football National Draft Day celebration at the Hard Rock. It's on Saturday, so there's still a chance for you to jump on an airplane and get here for it. Meet me at the craps table. (As an aside I'll have either Andrew Luck or Calvin Johnson in the second round of all my fantasy leagues this year, and you should too if you'd like to win). [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league todayl ] Anyway, it's also NFL futures betting season. After going 135-127-3 against the spread in all NFL games last season I'm back to try to correctly predict at least 51.5 percent of these futures bets posted here at the Hard Rock by Cantor Gaming. As alwaysm a reminder: I'm not a professional gambler and I'm fairly terrible at picking games and whatnot so you can probably find someone a little better at predicting the NFL future. But hey, my picks are free! So, for recreational purposes, here are the best futures bets for the NFL season: Pittsburgh Steelers over 8.5 wins, minus-135 (meaning one has to bet $135 to win $100) I liked this pick better before the Martavis Bryant four-game suspension news. And before Maurkice Pouncey's ankle surgery. But I still just don't see this as a .500 team or worse. The offense is too good, the front seven is too fast and the secondary ... well, you got me there. But they were 11-5 last season, and do you think they're three games worse? Even with a tougher schedule, I'm taking them to be above .500. New York Jets under 7 wins, plus-122 ($100 to win $122) This line rose to 7.5 wins before quarterback Geno Smith got his jaw broken by a teammate. I wonder, is Ryan Fitzpatrick really that much worse to justify that line move? Probably not. But I thought the line was crazy at 7.5 and I'm still good with it at 7. I don't think this team reaches 8-8 with that offense and a tough AFC East to contend with. I think they're the worst team in the division, and even if it's not a winner the worst-case scenario seems to be 7-9 and a push. NFC minus-3 over the AFC in the Super Bowl Just because this is a ridiculous and pick to make blind more than five months before Super Bowl 50. Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the NFC South, 5-to-1
Graham Barfield checks in on Martavis Bryant, Arian Foster, Breshad Perriman and more.
Willie Colon walked out of the New York Jets' facility eight months ago uncertain if he'd ever be back. ''The business side, you can never control,'' Colon said after the Jets held their final training camp practice Thursday. Many fans and media assumed the Jets would let the veteran offensive lineman leave as a free agent.
The No. 16 jersey and what it ultimately signifies for Tyler Murphy fits just fine and all. Given a choice, the Pittsburgh Steelers rookie would rather have a lower number, maybe one with a single digit. ''I still consider myself a quarterback,'' Murphy said.
In this week's Fantasy Roundtable, the Rotoworld Football crew discusses which players have stood out during the preseason.
After spending much of the previous two weeks working with the Bills' second- and third-stringers, Manuel will get his turn to start in Buffalo's third preseason game against Pittsburgh on Saturday. Coach Rex Ryan made the announcement following practice Thursday, when the team returned to Orchard Park after breaking camp in suburban Rochester. Acknowledging he didn't have an exact plan on who would start in the Bills' third preseason game when training camp started, Ryan said Manuel ''earned the shot at this.'' Ryan based that assessment on how Manuel went a combined 13 of 22 for 188 yards and two touchdowns in the second half of each of Buffalo's first two preseason games.
