Bears released TE Matthew Mulligan.
A veteran blocker, Mulligan could be brought back at a later date.
Bears waived RB Shaun Draughn.
It's a bit surprising, as Draughn outplayed rookie Ka'Deem Carey, while undrafted free agent Senorise Perry is the only other running back on the Bears' roster. Carey was already Matt Forte's handcuff, but there's now zero doubt about it. Going on 27, Draughn has averaged 3.7 yards on his 63 career carries.
49ers LCB Tramaine Brock (toe) is expected to miss his second-consecutive game in Week 3.
Brock is week to week. Perrish Cox is starting in his absence.
The Miami Herald reports DE Dion Jordan will not be immediately reinstated once the NFL and NFLPA agree to a new drug policy.
Currently two games through a four-game suspension, Jordan had been reported as a player who would have his ban reduced. It suggests that, unlike Wes Welker and Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick, Jordan's positive PED test was not triggered by an amphetamine. Barring reinstatement, Jordan will be eligible to return in Week 6.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are "kicking around idea of new kicker," and have worked out free agents Rob Bironas, Alex Henery and Garrett Hartley.
Seventh-round rookie Nate Freese is just two for his first five on field goals, and on extremely thin ice. Arguably any of the three veterans the Lions worked out would be an improvement.
Bears released WR Chris Williams.
WR Rashad Ross has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move.
Falcons LT Jake Matthews (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.
Matthews is now on track to return for Thursday's game against the Bucs. It would be a huge relief for a Falcons team that sported arguably the worst tackle duo in the league (Gabe Carimi and Lamar Holmes) for Sunday's loss to the Bengals. It's possible Carimi will take over for Holmes on the right side.
Colts waived RB Dion Lewis.
DT Kelcy Quarles has been plucked off the Patriots' practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Lewis looked like he might get some playing time when the Colts signed him on September 9, but they're apparently satisfied with Boom Herron behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. Under-sized at 5-foot-8, 195 pounds, Lewis owns a career 4.8 YPC through 36 carries.
