It's the moment we've all been waiting for -- Week 3 of the NFL preseason. We'll see more established stars and potential starters than any other week of the preseason. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

FALCONS at DOLPHINS (8 p.m., NBC)

» The Dolphins reportedly will be testing new running back Arian Foster to his limits in prime time. Coach Adam Gase will essentially give him the chance to top the depth chart against a Falcons defense that has been anything but impressive so far this preseason.

» Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins is about to bow out for four games thanks to a performance-enhancing drug suspension, which means he'll continue to get a significant amount of reps. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Collins played more than any other defensive player (23 snaps) in a game against the Browns last week. Will he flash improvement before a long break?

» Dolphins fans wondering where tight end Jordan Cameron has gone can take solace: Ryan Tannehill is taking great measures to find him on Thursday against the Falcons. Per the Palm Beach Post, Tannehill has been overly encouraging to the former free-agent prize in an attempt to bring him around before the regular-season opener.
