He has not practiced or played since early August due to a concussion, and he is very unlikely to play in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 30, against the New Orleans Saints. The team might waive him with an injury settlement; put him on Injured Reserve; or hold a place for him on the roster in hopes that he re-gains his health soon.
