NFL Rumors: Khalil Mack Could Miss Regular Season Games; Dez Bryant Might Wait Until Season to Sign

Get up to date on the latest rumors and news around the NFL as the start of the regular season creeps closer.

The start of the NFL season is just more than a week away and there are still All-Pro players waiting to decide on what they will be doing in 2018.

The Raiders, Rams and Seahawks are all waiting to see what will happen with Khalil Mack, Aaron Donald and Earl Thomas, respectively. The Steelers have gone without Le'Veon Bell for all of training camp. Dez Bryant is still without a team after visiting the Browns recently.

The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles have not decided whether or not Carson Wentz will be healthy enough to go in Week 1, and the Jets have not yet named a starter among the three quarterbacks they have under contract.

On Thursday, all 32 teams will take the field for their final preseason game, and on Saturday, all teams will have their rosters trimmed from 90 players down to 53.
