Profootballtalk reports Peyton Manning has zero plans to play in 2016.
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. 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.
Saints released DT C.J. Wilson.
TE RaShaun Allen, CB Brandon Dixon, OG Kaleb Eulls and LB Tony Steward have been waived. Smith signed as depth in June. A sixth-year pro, Wilson made 12 appearances between the Raiders and Lions last season. He'll troll for end-of-roster work.
Packers released P Tim Masthay.
Masthay has been the Pack's punter since 2010, but they'll move forward with Jake Schum, who was claimed off waivers on Tuesday. Masthay was due $1.2 million after coming in 14th in net-punting average last season. He'll get calls whenever someone needs a punter.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said DeVante Parker (hamstring) needs to do "the little things" off the field to stay healthy.
Parker tweaked his left hamstring in Monday's practice after missing several weeks of camp with a similar injury. "I feel like I’ve been through this with Demaryius [Thomas] in Denver," Gase said. "Sometimes it takes some guys more time to learn more than others. Eventually ... he will know how to push through certain kinds of pain." Gase is clearly frustrated with the sophomore, who has fallen behind Kenny Stills on the depth chart. Parker still has more fantasy upside than Stills, but he is a risky pick in the eighth round.
Bucs placed WR Louis Murphy (ACL) on the reserve/PUP list.
Murphy was the Bucs' No. 3 receiver before tearing his ACL last season. The Bucs are low on bodies behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, but there's no guarantee Murphy carves out a role if he's able to return in 2016.
