Shaun Hill will open the season as the Vikings' starting quarterback.

He should be grabbed in two-quarterback leagues, but nowhere else. 36 1/2 years old, Hill will spend much of his time under center executing handoffs to Adrian Peterson. Hill appeared in nine games (eight starts) with the 2014 Rams, completing 63.3 percent of his throws with an 8:7 TD-to-INT ratio and 7.2 YPA. The Vikings should be willing to take those rate stats and run with them if Hill can repeat. We wouldn't bet on Hill lasting 16 starts this year.

Vikings re-signed QB Brad Sorensen.

Sorensen was just cut on Monday, but the Vikings need his arm again after Teddy Bridgewater suffered a torn ACL and dislocated knee in Tuesday's practice. Minnesota will surely look for an upgrade on Sorensen in the coming days. For now, it's Shaun Hill, Sorensen, and UDFA Joel Stave.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports Jamaal Charles "hasn’t regained the role -- full-time featured back -- he had before last season’s torn ACL."

Teicher reports Spencer Ware is handling most of Kansas City's first-team running back reps in practice. Specifically, Teicher wrote that Ware "generally gets a lot of the starter’s snaps in practice. Charcandrick West gets some. Sometimes there are a few left for Charles, too." On Tuesday, coach Andy Reid said Tamba Hali (knee) is "a little further along than what Jamaal is right now," in their respective recoveries. At this point, it's unclear what Charles' role will be in Week 1 against the Chargers. An early-year RBBC appears likely. Due to their backfield depth, Teicher suggests the Chiefs "can afford to take the longer view with Charles."

The Vikings announced Teddy Bridgewater suffered a completely torn ACL and dislocated knee at Tuesday's practice.

This was the fear. Bridgewater also suffered "other structural damage," and he's obviously done for the season. The Vikings expect Bridgewater to make a full recovery, but when exactly he'll be healed is anybody's guess. It's going to be a long, lonely rehab for the 24-year-old (in November). Minnesota's playoff chances take a big hit, even if Bridgewater isn't scaring many defenses with his arm. He showed tangible signs of progress the past year. Veteran backup Shaun Hill is a big downgrade. Adrian Peterson will be relied on even more.

Profootballtalk reports Peyton Manning has zero plans to play in 2016.

Manning has been casually linked to the Vikings following Teddy Bridgewater's Tuesday injury, but it's not going to happen for a million different reasons. There's a 100 percent chance Manning has played his final NFL snap.
Aug 30 - 7:46 PM

Free agent QB Austin Davis is visiting the Cowboys on Wednesday.

The Cowboys need a new No. 2 behind Dak Prescott, but Davis is unlikely to be the answer. The Cowboys probably want/need an extra arm for Thursday's preseason finale.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Teddy Bridgewater's knee injury was "gruesome," and that his teammates were "noticeably affected."

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 at a Vikings training camp practice. Bridgewater isn't going to play this season. The question is fast becoming if he'll be ready for 2017.

Saints placed DE Hau'oli Kikaha (knee) on the reserve/PUP list.

The oft-injured 2015 second-rounder is expected to miss the entire season. Kikaha has torn his ACL three different times, clouding his future.
