      Wheaton caught two passes for 40 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

      Analysis: Wheaton and Antonio Brown operated as the outside receivers on the first-team offense, with 2015 UDFA Eli Rogers working out of the slot. Wheaton could get more time in the slot if Sammie Coates overtakes Rogers for the No. 3 job, but for now, it appears the 25-year-old Wheaton will mostly play outside while serving as the clear No. 2 wide receiver. With Le'Veon Bell suspended and Ladarius Green (ankle) looking increasingly doubtful, Wheaton may be heavily targeted early in the season.

      Toussaint gained eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two catches (two targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

      Analysis: Toussaint didn't get any touches until the fourth quarter, after Daryl Richardson dominated the third-quarter workload. Richardson failed to pull away in the battle for the No. 3 running back job, gaining just 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one reception. It's still unclear which player will serve as the top backup to DeAngelo Williams while Le'Veon Bell serves a three-game suspension to start the season. Bell's impending absence does mean that both Toussaint and Richardson could make the final roster.

      Richardson gained 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one catch (one target) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

      Analysis: After Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams played the first half, Richardson handled the third quarter and then split work with Fitzgerald Toussaint in the fourth quarter. No clear winner emerged in the battle for the No. 3 running back spot, as Toussaint was also ineffective on the ground, gaining eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two receptions (two targets). With Bell suspended for the first three games, the Steelers may keep both Toussaint and Richardson on the final roster, extending the audition period through Week 3.

      Herron gained 17 yards on five carries and 49 yards on five receptions (five targets) in Friday's preseason loss to Washington.

      Analysis: With LeSean McCoy (coach's decision) and Mike Gillislee (concussion) unavailable, Herron worked behind Reggie Bush and Jonathan Williams but ahead of James Wilder. Despite showing off his prowess as a receiver, Herron seemingly has little shot to make the final roster, as McCoy and Bush are perfectly adept pass-catchers. Herron could eventually draw interest from a team that loses its passing-down back to an injury.

      Romo (back) is unlikely to return before mid-season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

      Analysis: Romo played through two broken bones in his back during the 2014 season, which may explain why head coach Jason Garrett has yet to rule his starting quarterback out for Week 1. Despite Garrett's hesitance to do so, every report suggests Romo is facing an extended absence, as his current injury is different from the back issues he dealt with in previous seasons. More specifically, Romo has been diagnosed with a compression fracture of his L1 vertebrae, which typically requires 6-to-10 weeks of recovery, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. With Kellen Moore (broken ankle) already expected to miss most of the season, rookie fourth-round selection Dak Prescott is the favorite to start Week 1 against the Giants. The rookie has been phenomenal through the first three weeks of the preseason, completing 39 of 50 passes for 454 yards and five touchdowns, with another two touchdowns on the ground and no fumbles or interceptions. According to Sirius XM Sports Medical Analyst David J. Chao, Romo will be out for a minimum of six weeks, but he won't need surgery and shouldn't have any long-term complications.
