The NFL preseason is officially underway with the Hall of Fame Game in the books and the first full week of the preseason kicking off tonight. That means the NFL rumor mill is starting to really pick up with various roster moves, holdouts, extensions, injuries and possible trades. Here are all the latest NFL rumors you need to know:

Broncos not pursuing a trade for A.J. McCarron
The Denver Broncos had been linked to Cincinnati Bengals backup quarterback A.J. McCarron in trade rumors, but those reports are "150% false" according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.

General manager John Elway took to Twitter to clarify things himself, calling reports linking them to McCarron "fake news."

Trevor Siemian, who currently leads the starting quarterback battle over 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch, will start Thursday in Denver's preseason opener against the Chicago Bears. Lynch will start the season preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Siemian passed for 3,401 yards with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 14 starts last season, while Lynch passed for 497 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in three appearances, including two starts.

Tyrone Crawford out several weeks with ankle injury
Dallas Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford was carted out of practice on Tuesday with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury, but it turned out to be a sprain, according to Rob Phillips of the team's website.

The sprain will keep him out for a few weeks, but the Cowboys are hopeful that he will be able to return for the team's regular season opener against the New York Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Crawford had 28 tackles with 4.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 14 games last season.
