      Bell was close to agreement on a long-term contract prior to last month's deadline for franchise-tag players to sign extensions, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

      Analysis: Bell was reportedly on the verge of a five-year contract worth over $12 million annually, but the deadline obviously passed without him signing, thus forcing the Steelers and his representatives to have to revisit negotiations after this season. While Bell is believed to be holding out for a salary of $15 million in any extension, the tailback still hasn't inked his $12.1 million tender for this season, allowing him to remain away from the team to this point without penalty. It remains to be seen when Bell will sign his contract, but fantasy owners should be relieved by his stated intention to play a full campaign, meaning he'll be back in the fold sometime before Week 1.

      Miller (ankle) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Analysis: Miller has been sidelined this week with a sprained ankle suffered in the Texans' exhibition opener. Along with him missing out Saturday, top wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Will Fuller (collarbone) are also banged up, which figures to open opportunities for Jaelen Strong, Dres Anderson, Wendell Williams and others to get more snaps.

      According to coach Sean McDermott, Taylor is anticipated to start Week 1 of the regular season, Joe Buscaglia of ABC 7 Buffalo reports.

      Analysis: Taylor is coming off a poor, two-interception outing in Buffalo's preseason loss to the Eagles on Thursday, which raised some concerns going into this season. Although the Bills have been reluctant to embrace Taylor as their starting quarterback long-term, McDermott revealed he'll take the entirety of the first-team snaps in next weekend's dress rehearsal, when he'll ideally play a series into the third quarter. With that support, Taylor shouldn't be worried about his standing, yet he'll be focused on sharpening his performance to avoid any further questioning.

      Walden (groin) has returned to practice, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reports.

      Analysis: Walden was listed as day-to-day just over a week ago with a groin injury, but has since returned to practice and doesn't appear to be limited in any capacity. Walden is expected to back up Derrick Morgan at left outside linebacker this season.

      Cyprien (ankle) started at strong safety in the Titans' preseason opener against the Jets.

      Analysis: Cyprien suffered from a leg injury during Titans minicamp back in June, but it appears he is since over the minor injury and is set to take his spot as the team's starting strong safety this season.
