Jahvid Best To PUP Rounds Out Lions' Roster Moves

The Detroit Lions placed running back Jahvid Best on the physically unable to perform list Monday, as the team made its final roster moves to adhere to the NFL's 75-player roster deadline. Best, who's still recovering from a major concussion suffered last season, can return after the first six games of the season.

To get to the 75 players, the Lions also put rookie conerback Chris Greenwood on the PUP list, placed offensive linemen Bill Nagy and Jonathan Scott on injured reserve and released wide receiver Dominique Curray and safety Isaac Madison.

Greenwood missed all of training camp after having abdominal surgery, while Nagy was recovering from an ankle injury. Scott was placed on IR after hurting his knee early in training camp.

Jets Roster Cuts: Josh Brown Highlights New York Cut List

For the second straight season, Nick Folk has earned the job as the New York Jets place kicker. The depth chart news was made official Monday when the team cut Josh Brown. Head coach Rex Ryan and special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff made the decision on Brown, who was released by the St. Louis Rams this winter and will now need to find another team.

For most of training camp, Brown pushed Folk hard but just like last season, when Nick Novak was given a chance to earn a Jets' roster spot, the former Arizona Wildcats outperformed his opponent. Folk cemented his starting role after making all three of his attempts in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Brown went 1-for-2.

NFL Roster Cuts: Colts Make Moves Ahead Of Deadline

The Indianapolis Colts made a handful of roster moves Monday, as wide receiver Griff Whalen, tackle George Foster and cornerback Brandon McKinney were placed on injured reserve, and nose tackle Josh Chapman and guard Justin Anderson were put on the physically unable to perform list.

The Colts also announced the following players have been waived: CB Cameron Chism, CB Antonio Fenelus, CB Terrence Johnson, CB Chris Rucker, S Matt Merletti, S David Caldwell, LB Mike Balogun, WR Quan Cosby, RB Alvester Alexander, G Jason Foster and P Brian Stahovich.

The moves came before the NFL's 4 p.m. roster cut deadline, which forces all teams to be down to 75 players.

On Saturday, McKinney suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Colts' 30-17 preseason loss to the Washington Redskins. Whalen was also injured in the loss, as he re-injured a foot that caused him to miss a majority of training camp.

Meanwhile, Chapman and Anderson were both Colts' selections in the 2012 NFL Draft. Chapman, a University of Alabama product, was the Colts fifth-round selection, while Anderson, from the University of Georgia, was taken in the seventh round.

Bears Roster Cuts: Chicago Releases 10

The deadline for NFL teams to trim their rosters down to 75 players is fast approaching, and the Chicago Bears cut 10 players Monday to help reach that number, Larry Mayer of reports.

In addition to the 10 cuts, Chicago also placed Brandon Hardin on injured reserve and Johnny Knox on the physically unable to perform list. Hardin was a third-round pick out of Oregon State in April's NFL Draft. He was lost for the season with a neck injury sustained in a preseason game against the Washington Redskins. Knox is still recovering from a spinal injury suffered last December.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune says the reported cuts bring the roster down to 76, but there may be another one on the way:

Terrell Owens Released By Seattle Seahawks

Wide receiver Terrell Owens has been released by the Seattle Seahawks after the team gave the 38-year-old veteran a chance to make the squad in 2012, according to Owens.

Owens, who was signed with Seattle at the beginning of August, said he was no longer a member of the team on his Twitter feed.

Owens did have two receptions for 41 yards in Seattle's third preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but was unable to impress coach Pete Carroll and the Seahawks management enough to overcome a reported deficit in performance in practice against fellow wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

In the Seahawks' second preseason game, quarterback Matt Flynn targeted Owens five times, but completed none of them. Many of the incompletions were a result of Owens dropping the ball, including a bomb that should have gone for a 46-yard touchdown toss. Instead, the ball went through Owens' hands.
