Player Notes

  • Significant downturn in Week 3 loss
    Jones completed 22 of 32 passes for 137 yards with no touchdowns and one interception and added two rushes for five yards in the Giants' 30-12 loss to the 49ers on Thursday night.

    Advice: Jones was only sacked twice and picked off once, but he was hit an additional four times unofficially and also limited to a microscopic 4.3 yards per attempt. The veteran signal-caller spread the ball around to seven different players, yet no Giants pass catcher managed to total more than 32 receiving yards. Jones has now put together a worrisome body of work in essentially 10 of his first 12 quarters of the season, particularly concerning when factoring in the financial commitment made to him by the franchise this offseason. Jones and his teammates will be trying to stave off a 1-3 start when they tangle with the Seahawks in a Week 4 home matchup on Monday night, Oct. 2. Today, 4:01 am

  • Eclipses 300-yard mark in win
    Purdy completed 25 of 37 passes for 310 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while rushing four times for minus-1 yard in the 49ers' 30-12 win over the Giants on Thursday night. He also fumbled once but recovered.

    Advice: Purdy turned in a third impressive performance in as many games to open the season, connecting with six different targets and putting together his best yardage total yet despite playing without Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder). Purdy connected with Ronnie Bell (nine yards) and Deebo Samuel (27 yards) for his two touchdown passes on his way to his second multi-TD effort over the first three games. Purdy has looked every bit as effective as hoped after last season's Cinderella rookie run, and he'll now have extra time to prepare for a Week 4 home date with the Cardinals a week from Sunday that could feature Aiyuk's return to action.

  • Plans to sign with New England
    The Patriots are expected to sign Grier to their 53-man roster Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Once the move becomes official, Grier -- who had been a member of the Bengals' practice squad -- will provide the Patriots with added quarterback depth behind Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. Meanwhile, the Bengals would be left with Joe Burrow (calf) and Jake Browning as their only options at quarterback between the 53-man roster and practice squad. Yesterday, 10:43 pm

  • Logs full practice Thursday
    Stroud (shoulder) was a full practice participant Thursday.

    Advice: Stroud was listed as a limited participant Wednesday, but his full participation a day later sets the stage for him to start Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle relays that Stroud, who dealt with shoulder soreness last week, feels almost "100 percent," and barring any setbacks, the rookie shouldn't face any limitations Week 3. Two games into the season, Stroud has thrown for 626 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions to go along with seven carries for 21 yards. Yesterday, 9:08 pm

  • Doesn't practice Thursday
    Burrow (calf) was listed as a non-participant in practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Advice: Head coach Zac Taylor previously relayed that the Bengals plan to take it "day-to-day" with Burrow and "assess [him] each day," per Hobson, For his part, Burrow was non-committal about his availability for Monday's game against the Rams, according to Hobson. Burrow now has two more chances to practice before the Bengals determine whether or not he'll approach the contest with an injury designation. Yesterday, 8:25 pm
