Perkins recorded one reception on two targets for five yards in Thursday's 26-15 loss to Baltimore.
Analysis: The fact that Perkins played Thursday is good news, as he left the practice field Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury. It certainly would've been an unfortunate time to go down with an injury, as the 26-year-old sits on the roster bubble as Philadelphia's fourth tight end and obviously needs to see the field to make his case.
Brate (undisclosed) won't play in Friday's preseason matchup with the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Analysis: As was the case with Brate's recent practice absence, it's ambiguous whether he's injured or simply being held out for rest purposes. Either way, he's locked into the No. 2 tight end role for the Bucs behind O.J. Howard.
Croom (hamstring) is slated to sit out Friday's preseason game against the Lions, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Analysis: Croom continues to battle a hamstring issue as roster cuts begin to loom. However, considering he hauled in 22 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown last season and Tyler Kroft's status for the opener remains unclear, Croom may still be in decent shape to earn a 53-man roster spot.
Mayfield will start Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers, Ken Carman of 923 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Head coach Freddie Kitchens confirmed Mayfield's status and said he'll feel out from there how much the quarterback plays.
Executive VP Stephen Jones expressed Friday that he is confident Elliott and the Cowboys will agree to terms on a new contract prior to Week 1, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.
Analysis: While appearing on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Friday, Jones was asked about Elliott's status, and he noted that "things happen real quick" in contract negotiations. "Sometimes in hours," Jones added. While Jones expressed optimism a deal would get reached, he also added, "I don't think we're close because there's not a lot of activity." As such, it seems both sides have a number in mind at the moment, but neither is willing to budge. All in all, Jones' comments indicate it shouldn't take long to come to an agreement once one side is willing to give a little, but for now, the impasse continues, and Elliott's availability for Week 1 hangs in the balance.
Burkhead logged seven snaps on offense in Thursday's 10-3 preseason win over the Panthers. In the process, he ran twice for three yards and caught one pass for six yards
Analysis: The numbers are much less important than the fact that Burkhead is healthy, considering that he dealt with a knee issue leading up to Week 1 of the 2018 season. As roster cut-downs approach, Burkhead looks like a roster lock along with Sony Michel, James White, Damien Harris and Brandon Bolden. Though that's obviously a deep group, Burkhead remains a useful cog in the New England offense, thanks to his versatility. Volume figures to be an issue for him, however, as long as Michel (the starter) and White, the top change-of-pace back, are available.
Ford had six carries for 11 yards and one reception for eight yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the Raiders.
Analysis: Ford finished third among Packers running backs that suited up in both touches and carries, which essentially slots him in fifth on the depth chart heading into next week's preseason finale.
Harris (Lower leg) didn't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers, Nick O'Malley of Masslive.com reports.
Analysis: Harris had his moments early on in training camp, but his injury, as well as the return to the field of Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) have combined to dampen the notion that he could be an early-season fantasy sleeper. Additionally, Harris is not a roster lock at this point, with N'Keal Harry also on hand and both Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers making strong cases to secure spots.
