  • Bridgewater's injury described as 'gruesome'
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Teddy Bridgewater's knee injury was "gruesome," and that his teammates were "disturbed and horrified," with some even throwing up.

    Advice: It sounds like we're dealing with a Kevin Ware/Paul George-type situation. An ambulance and paramedics were summoned when Bridgewater went down, with the paramedics being something longtime observers had never seen before. Bridgewater isn't going to play this season. The question is fast becoming if he'll be ready for 2017. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago

  • Vikes admit 'significant' Bridgewater injury
    Speaking Tuesday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Teddy Bridgewater's knee injury is "significant."

    Advice: Zimmer refused to formally announce that Bridgewater is out for the season, but seemed resigned to the fact. The Vikes will get official word after more testing. Anything from a torn ACL to torn patellar tendon is a possibility. Shaun Hill is now the starter, though the Vikings will be searching for more depth. Colin Kaepernick is the biggest name available, but his collapsed play, off-the-field distractions and salary are all significant hurdles to an acquisition. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:11 pm

  • Kellen Moore (broken ankle) heads to I.R.
    Cowboys placed QB Kellen Moore on injured reserve with a broken ankle, ending his season.

    Advice: With Tony Romo out months with a back injury, the Cowboys need a new No. 2 quarterback behind rookie starter Dak Prescott. It's a major concern for a team with its usual playoff designs. Now 27, Moore will head into 2017 with 104 career attempts, all of which came last season. He's unlikely to ever get another chance at No. 2 duties. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm

  • Bridgewater suffers non-contact knee injury
    Teddy Bridgewater suffered a potentially serious non-contact left knee injury in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Bridgewater went down in a heap, and his teammates immediately called for the trainer. According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, players were cursing and throwing their helmets. They gathered around Bridgewater in prayer. The scene was described as "complete shock." The Vikings canceled practice and an ambulance was summoned. Obviously, it has the looks of a potentially season-ending injury, which would be a devastating blow even considering Bridgewater's game-managing ways. Journeyman veteran Shaun Hill is the next man up on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:02 pm

The Bengals and Giants could also be options after both put in claims when Mettenberger was waived in May. Despite a somewhat promising showing as a rookie, Mettenberger has not proven to be even a capable backup, losing his spot to undrafted rookie Mike Bercovici this preseason.

    Advice: It is a surprising decision considering Brees has not played in a preseason finale since 2006, but Payton obviously believes his offense needs more work. Considering how poorly the offensive line has played this preseason, it could be a decision he comes to regret.

A return after the team's Week 7 bye has been floated as the most likely scenario, but Jones said the team is still discussing whether or not to place Romo on injured reserve, which would keep him out at least the first eight weeks.

Dallas' skill players seem to trust the rookie more than they did Brandon Weeden or Matt Cassel, last year's fill-ins, and they have good reason to after a dynamic preseason.

"It's fun to get out there and get up to the line, get our guys in the right spots and keep the pressure on the defense." Famously not allowed to audible in the last offensive system in Miami, Tannehill is obviously relishing the opportunity to actually play quarterback.

  • 49ers could 'put Kaepernick on ice' for 2016?
    MMQB's Albert Breer believes there's a "realistic possibility" the 49ers put Colin Kaepernick "on ice" for all of the 2016 season.

    Advice: In doing so, the 49ers would protect themselves from Kaepernick potentially injuring himself, which would then result in Kap unlocking more guaranteed money in his contract if he suffers a severe injury. It would also mean Kaepernick wouldn't dress on game days, which wouldn't allow him to visibly protest anymore National Anthems. The Niners can save $16.9 million against the cap next offseason by designating Kap as a post-June 1 cut. In the "icing" scenario, rookie Jeff Driskel would likely serve as Blaine Gabbert's backup to open the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:01 pm

    Advice: That's much different than the Cowboys contacting the Broncos.

    Broncos officially announced Trevor Siemian as their starting quarterback.

    Advice: #AsExpected. Despite entering the offseason as the heavy underdog to Mark Sanchez, the 2015 seventh-rounder simply outplayed the veteran throughout training camp and the preseason. Showing a good understanding of the offense and a willingness to push the ball downfield, it is not crazy to think Siemian could perform as well as Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler did for the Broncos last season. With the starting job now set, the focus turns to the battle between first-rounder Paxton Lynch and Sanchez for the No. 2 job.

    Advice: They also sent RB Glenn Winston (shoulder) and DL Nile Lawrence-Stample (shoulder) to injured reserve. Cleveland has one more move to make before tomorrow's deadline.

    Even though Colin Kaepernick's $11.9 million salary is fully guaranteed, the 49ers could save salary cap space by releasing him if Kaepernick signed with another team.

    Advice: As Profootballtalk's Mike Florio notes, the salary which Kaepernick would receive from the signing team would come off of San Francisco's cap. This at least gives them some incentive and excuse for parting ways with Kaepernick that isn't related to his sitting during the National Anthem.

    Advice: This assumes Kaepernick is on an NFL roster this season, and attending games at all. While it is certainly within his rights to sit when the National Anthem is played, it has caused a P.R. nightmare in San Francisco and will remain one for as long as Kaepernick is showing up on Sundays. Other teams likely now view him as toxic. It's no secret Kaepernick is disliked by teammates, even prior to the National Anthem thing.

The second-round pick got hot for a stretch with four straight completions on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive but was a non-factor the rest of the night. He threw an ugly interception in his own end zone late in the fourth quarter to set up the Giants' game-winning drive and also took an inexcusable delay of game penalty.

Sanchez is a known commodity to anyone who has watched NFL football since 2009. The Broncos needed to see as much of Siemian and Paxton Lynch as possible.

    Advice: He recorded one yard on four rushing attempts, though two were kneel-downs. It was a tepid effort for Lynch, who missed an opportunity to put distance between himself and Mark Sanchez, who is on the bubble. Lynch got off to a nice start by completing his first four passes but limped to the finish with seven misses over his last nine throws. To be fair, Lynch was playing with backups and the Broncos used a run-heavy approach featuring Devontae Booker and Ronnie Hillman. Lynch's longest completion came on a 17-yard screen to Booker.

    Advice: If you're scoring at home, the No. 1 overall pick of the draft has now gotten "shaken up" in 2-of-3 preseason games. Goff is a featherweight who has looked like one thus far through exhibition action. It's clear now why the Rams seem madly intent on starting Keenum Week 1.

    Advice: It wasn’t a perfect outing for Siemian, but it was enough to keep him ahead of Paxton Lynch and Mark Sanchez. Denver got off to a bit of a sluggish start with three-and-outs on its first two drives but things started clicking for Siemian in the second quarter when he threw a one-yard touchdown to Virgil Green on a well-executed play-action pass. Siemian also connected with Demaryius Thomas on a gorgeous 42-yard strike down the right sideline. He did turn the ball over once but Cody Latimer made a minimal effort on a pass that was intercepted by Rams S Cody Davis.

Kap has seemed checked out of San Francisco since last season, and has seen his on-field performance deteriorate at an alarming rate. All he's really accomplished this summer is setting off constitutional debates on Twitter. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:37 pm

  • Tony Romo's best case for return is Week 8
    Updating previous items, the Dallas Morning News says Tony Romo's (back) "best case" return would be after the Cowboys' Week 7 bye.

    Advice: That would entail Romo missing six games, and eight weeks altogether. In all likelihood, preseason star Dak Prescott is going to make at least six starts to open the season. He is a QB2 with upside in a talented Dallas offense. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:31 pm

  • Romo has compression fracture in back
    ESPN Dallas reports Tony Romo's specific injury is a "compression fracture of his L1 vertebrae."

    Advice: Romo will not require surgery, meaning he'll need rest and rehab to heal. 6-10 weeks continues to be the most common timetable discussed, while NFL Network reported Romo won't return until midseason in a "best case scenario." Romo is 36 years old with a long history of back injuries. If Dak Prescott plays well early in the season, the Cowboys may be forced to ride the rookie. That makes Prescott worth grabbing in all two-quarterback leagues. The Cowboys also have a very favorable schedule. Prescott will be in play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:23 pm

    Dak Prescott will open the year as the Cowboys' starter.

    Advice: With Tony Romo (back) out 6-10 weeks, Prescott should start at least the first month. Prescott has blown up the preseason, throwing for 454 yards and a 5:0 TD/INT ratio through three games. He's obviously a good bet to regress against more complex schemes, but his rushing ability gives him some early-season value. Prescott is worth a late-round flyer. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:56 am

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Grant Cohn has made a convincing case on Twitter that Kaepernick's release may be inevitable, but it would be a costly move for the 49ers.

That is good news for Jameis Winston, who put up QB1 numbers less than a third of the time as a rookie despite finishing as the QB13.

    Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem before Friday night's preseason game.

    Advice: This is a non-story, but it is something the 49ers could use against Kap if they decide to move on. "The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony," the team said in a statement to Pro Football Talk. "In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem." In response to the "controversy," Kaepernick told NFL Network's Steve Wyche he is "not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color." The real story is Kaepernick was dreadful on the field Friday night, almost guaranteeing he will open the season as a backup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:46 am

    Advice: Kaepernick was downright dreadful in Friday night's preseason game, looking entirely uncomfortable in new coach Chip Kelly's offense. If the 49ers aren't going to start Kaepernick, they have three options -- trade him, pay him $12 million not to play, or grant Kaepernick his release. If the 49ers opt to keep Kap around, that $12 million figure will be an awfully large bullet to bite. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:42 pm

    Colin Kaepernick completed 2-of-6 passes for 14 yards and rushed four times for 18 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

    Advice: Playing behind Blaine Gabbert, Kaepernick failed to assert himself as a legit contender for the Week 1 starting job. While he made a few innocuous plays with his legs, Kaepernick looked uncomfortable in the pocket and failed to generate a single first down. Kaepernick remains likely to make starts at some point this year, but Gabbert will be the starter on Opening Day. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:15 pm

  • Winston shreds Browns for 259 yards and 2 TDs
    Jameis Winston completed 16-of-25 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' third preseason game against the Browns.

    Advice: He added two carries for nine yards. The Bucs opened the night in no-huddle, and Winston looked extremely comfortable in the hurry-up offense. Coach Dirk Koetter got him on the move on rollouts and bootlegs, letting Winston find open space to hit Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans for numerous chunk gains. Jackson posted a 4-78 line, and Evans exploded for 5-115-1, catching a bomb behind Justin Gilbert on a 49-yard gain, then leaping over the smaller Jamar Taylor for a 34-yard touchdown to finish the same drive. Winston's other score went to Charles Sims. The Browns didn't put up much of a fight, but Winston was flawless on Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:10 pm

  • RG3 pummeled in regular season tune-up vs. TB
    Robert Griffin III completed 8-of-14 passes for 119 yards and one touchdown in the Browns' third preseason game Friday night.

    Advice: The Bucs field one of the least-inspiring pass-rush groups in the league, but they recorded five sacks on RGIII in the first half, while knocking him down a number of other times. They especially got after the quarterback on third down, as coach Hue Jackson dialed up a lot of long-developing plays only to see his offensive line not hold its blocks. RGIII finished on a high note, however, hitting Josh Gordon deep for a 43-yard touchdown. Gordon did all the work, manhandling pint-sized CB Brent Grimes and adjusting to the ball in the air. Last week, RGIII looked phenomenal. Tonight, he was pummeled. The inconsistency is what keeps him a boom-or-bust QB2. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:45 pm

  • Dak Prescott's preseason: 7 TDs, 0 turnovers
    Dak Prescott completed 17-of-23 passes for 116 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding two rushes for 12 yards.

    Advice: Through three exhibition contests, Prescott is 39-of-50 passing (78.0 percent) for 454 yards (9.08 YPA) and a 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio with 53 yards and two more scores on seven carries. That makes seven all-purpose touchdowns for Dak, compared to zero turnovers. The sample size remains small and Prescott has been put in consistently favorable situations by Dallas' coaching staff, but he also warrants recognition as one of the NFL's best preseason stories. He particularly excelled under pressure in Thursday night's game at Seattle, keeping the offense on the move despite the absence of Dez Bryant (concussion). Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:21 pm

He shook it off on the sideline and pleaded with coach Jason Garrett to reenter, but the Cowboys understandably didn't think it was worth it. Later, the Cowboys' broadcast said Romo's back was "tight" and he could have went back in, but was held out on a "coaches' decision."

    Advice: He added two carries for 22 yards. They're mediocre stats, but the Dolphins' coaching staff probably liked what it saw from its quarterback. Tannehill appeared more in command than he's been in years past, going so far as to — gasp — audible. His decision-making still wasn't the best — the pick was a tipped ball thrown directly at a lineman — but he showed his usual nice connection with Jarvis Landry in addition to Kenny Stills. Tannehill closes the book on the exhibition season 34-of-53 for 325 yards (6.13 YPA), two touchdowns and a pick. He's a mid-range QB2 under quarterback whisperer Adam Gase.

More accurately, Mark Sanchez outright lost the starting job with three turnovers in Denver's first two exhibitions, and Paxton Lynch isn't quite ready yet.

It would have been easy to move on from Petty but his emergence means the Jets may end up keeping four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster.

It was a better effort than Goff's exhibition debut, though he was lucky not to get himself killed on a second quarter hit where he pump faked three times before taking a vicious hit.
