Alex Smith picking apart Titans

The Chiefs' signal-caller is only the No. 22-ranked QB in ESPN Fantasy Football, but he's looking like a star tonight, going 16-for-18 for 171 yards and 2 TDs as the Chiefs lead the Titans 17-0 early in the second quarter. Fantasy QB rankings

Washington Redskins president Bruce Allen said Friday night, before news broke about Robert Griffin III not being available Saturday, that coach Jay Gruden could change quarterbacks if he wanted. "That's coach Gruden's decision," Allen said. Griffin missing time could pave the way for that change if Kirk Cousins plays well in his absence.

Brady shines in 2-minute drill

Tom Brady had completed as many passes to the Panthers (2) as to his own team before the latest Patriots' drive -- on which he went 5-for-6 and tossed an 18-yard TD to Scott Chandler. Follow live

Mariota struggling vs. Chiefs

No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota is 0-for-3 so far passing the ball tonight, but does have 21 yards rushing, as the Titans trail the Chiefs 9-0 early in the second quarter. Follow live

RG III not cleared for return

After initially being cleared to play, Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) will not play Saturday against the Ravens. John Clayton says: "For RG III, the Redskins, this is a big setback that really adds confusion to what's going on in Washington."

Jaguars lose DE Andre Branch with knee injury for rest of game. RG Brandon Linder questionable with a tor injury.

Albert Wilson has shoulder injury. Return is questionable. Opens playing time for Conley and Hammond

Maclin puts Chiefs on top

For the second consecutive game, Jeremy Maclin has scored a touchdown, giving the Chiefs a 6-0 lead over the Titans (extra point was no good). Alex Smith -- who didn't complete a TD pass to a wide receiver in the regular season in 2014 -- is 6-for-7 for 71 yards so far. Follow live

The Carolina Panthers continued to start slow offensively. With a field goal on four drives to start Friday night's game against New England the first unit has 10 points on 11 series. Drops continue to be an issue.

Tom Brady, playing w/o several receivers, throws 2nd INT in 1st q at Carolina. Maybe his mind is elsewhere, in a Manhattan court room.

Brady picked off again

If this is a regular-season dress rehearsal, Tom Brady may want to re-write the script. The Pats QB is 2-for-6 passing and just threw his second interception of the first quarter. The Panthers lead the Patriots 3-0. Follow live

Reggie Wayne snap tracker: Through three drives, he's played 7 of 10 snaps. No targets yet. Officially signed Tuesday. Right into the mix.

Tom Brady picked off! Charles Tillman with an incredible play to take the ball away from Aaron Dobson for the interception.

A surprise man on the run

Your leading rusher so far in this Panthers-Patriots game is not a running back, nor is it Cam Newton but it is Tom Brady with 18 yards. That's the preseason for you. Follow live

Mike DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars rookie safety James Sample (forearm) will not play tonight. Was hoping to get a look at the 4th-round pick, who was challenging starter Sergio Brown before he got hurt.

Slow start for Brady

Tom Brady is just 1-for-3 passing for 7 yards on New England's first two possessions of the game. The Pats and Panthers are scoreless in the first quarter of the third preseason game for each team. Follow live
