Aug 22 2014 - Michael Egnew (Dolphins), TE Michael Egnew, the 2012 third-round pick out of Missouri who managed just seven catches for 69 yards and no touchdowns during his first two NFL seasons, was waived by Miami.
Egnew, 24, appeared in just two games as a rookie, struggling to pick up the offense and create separation downfield. He managed seven catches last season, but was fighting for a roster spot throughout training camp with Arthur Lynch, Gator Hoskins, Brett Brackett and Evan Wilson, only one of whom is likely to be kept on the depth chart behind Charles Clay and Dion Sims.
Egnew is the highest draft pick to be cut loose by the Dolphins since 2009 second-round pick Pat White, the former West Virginia quarterback who failed to make his mark in a "Wildcat" role.
Aug 22 2014 - Donald Stephenson (Chiefs), T Donald Stephenson has been suspended for the first four games of the 2014 season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The Chiefs were informed of the league's decision on Friday morning.
"Obviously losing Donald is disappointing, but we are in full compliance with the league's policy. We will have no further comment on the situation," the team said in a statement.
Stephenson, 25, has played in every game since being a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He started seven games in both 2012 and 2013.
"I'm extremely sorry that I failed to check with the NFL, NFLPA or Chiefs medical team before I took a medication that requires a therapeutic use exemption," Stephenson said via a statement. "The rules are strict and without a therapeutic use exemption, the consequence is a four-game suspension. ... It is not a mistake I will ever make again."
He is permitted to play in the Chiefs' final two preseason games and will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 30. Stephenson is the team's starter at right tackle.
Aug 22 2014 - Jeremy Maclin (Eagles), WR Jeremy Maclin crumpled to the turf without being hit early in the second quarter Thursday and grabbed his knee. But he eventually walked off under his own power and later returned to the game.
"It was obviously an awkward fall," he said. "It was similar to what I did last year (when he tore his ACL), with the knee going straight into the ground like that. Luckily, my quad is strong enough and the leg is intact."
Aug 22 2014 - LeSean McCoy (Eagles), RB LeSean McCoy suffered a thumb injury and went to the locker room during the first quarter of Thursday night's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but coach Chip Kelly called the injury "no big deal."
X-rays were negative and McCoy came back to the sideline and had his right hand taped.
During a first-quarter series, McCoy took a hard hit from Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons on a play that resulted in a 5-yard loss. McCoy came off the field and requested a trainer.
On the Eagles' next offensive series, McCoy went back into the game and scored a touchdown on a 22-yard screen pass from quarterback Nick Foles.
McCoy acknowledged after the game that his thumb was sore.
"A helmet hit it," McCoy said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. "It definitely hurts. But there have been times I've been banged up and it turns out fine. We'll see what happens."
Aug 21 2014 - Sammy Watkins (Bills), WR Sammy Watkins sat out two days of padded practices after injuring his ribs last week at Pittsburgh, but he was a full participant in Thursday's no-pads workout. It's not known whether the Bills will hold him out of Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.
