Saints coach Sean Payton said Drew Brees and the starters will play the first quarter Thursday night.

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. Even if the starters see extensive snaps, it would not be surprising if Brees plays just one series or is held out altogether.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said his starters will play in the preseason finale Thursday.

Teams usually rest their starters in the final preseason game, but several coaches have decided to break that mold this year. "I feel comfortable that we need to play our starters on both sides of the ball," Jackson said. "We need to get better as a football team as we continue to move forward." It is unlikely a quarter of football against backups will spark a bottom-five roster to a winning season, but it is worth a shot.

Eli Apple worked as a boundary corner in the Giants' first-team nickel package Monday.

With Leon Hall (concussion) sidelined, Apple worked opposite Janoris Jenkins on the outside with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie manning the slot. Considering Hall's struggles even before his injury, it could be the lineup the Giants trot out against the Cowboys Week 1. Despite a slow start this offseason, it looks like Apple will play a big rookie role.

Lions placed TE Brandon Pettigrew (ACL) on the reserve/PUP.

The veteran is attempting to come back from a December ACL tear. The move will cost Pettigrew at least the first six weeks of the season. With Eric Ebron (ankle) questionable for Week 1, the Lions are extremely thin at tight end. Detroit also cut CB Brandon McGee to reach the 75-man roster limit.

Bengals released WR/KR Brandon Tate.

This is a bit surprising considering how important Tate is on special teams and the fact he worked at times with the first-team offense in the preseason, but the Bengals are clearly trying to get younger at receiver. Tate should be able to find a new home.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chiefs have made QB Aaron Murray available for trade.

After signing Nick Foles to backup Alex Smith, the Chiefs were never going to keep both Murray and Tyler Bray. A 2014 fifth-rounder, Murray could be interesting to a team desperate for a low-cost backup. Murray will likely be waived if the Chiefs cannot work out a deal.

In a radio interview, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is not sure when Tony Romo (back) will return.

"I don't know and don't know that anybody does," Jones said. "But it's quite a range there, four to six, six to eight, eight to (10)." 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. Dak Prescott will open the season as the starter.

Jaguars waived DE Bjoern Werner and TE Nic Jacobs.

They also placed S James Sample (shoulder) on injured reserve to reach the 75-man roster limit. A first-round mega-bust of the Colts in 2013, Werner has recorded 6.5 sacks in 38 career games. His pedigree will likely earn him another shot, but he is running out of chances. Once thought to be a roster lock, Jacobs' release is somewhat surprising.
