49ers released RT Erik Pears.

They also cut tight end Rory "Busta" Anderson. Pears started all 16 games for the Niners last season but couldn't hold off Trent Brown in camp. The 34-year-old should land a backup gig in relatively short order despite his struggles last year.

Chargers RB Branden Oliver was carted off the field in Sunday's preseason game with a right foot/ankle injury.

We're not doctors, but you could practically see Oliver's Achilles' tendon pop in slow motion. The Chargers have since confirmed. Oliver will be done for the season. Oliver is a jack-of-all-trades backup behind Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon. It leaves the Bolts with little room for error if Woodhead gets hurt or Gordon doesn't take a step forward.

Lions acquired OG Brandon Thomas from the 49ers in exchange for WR Jeremy Kerley.

One of the 49ers' ACL rehab picks, Thomas missed his entire rookie year before playing 106 competent snaps last season. He was no longer needed in San Fran with an un-retired Anthony Davis shifting to guard. Thomas will provide depth behind the questionable duo of LG Laken Tomlinson and RG Larry Warford.

49ers acquired WR Jeremy Kerley from the Lions in exchange for OG Brandon Thomas.

Kerley, whose career has been in gradual, consistent decline, will provide some depth in the slot and feature on special teams. He'll likely crack the 53-man roster considering how little talent GM Trent Baalke has assembled.

Bills RB Jonathan Williams (ribs) will not play in the team's preseason finale.

NFL Network previously reported Williams was "fine," but he's not fine enough to practice or play in his final exhibition opportunity. When the season starts, Williams will be behind Shady McCoy, Reggie Bush, and Mike Gillislee.

Bucs released/waived S Major Wright, DT Travis Britz, CB Daniel Davie, WR Andre Davis, OT Taylor Fallin, LB Jeremiah George, DE Martin Ifedi, RB Storm Johnson, DT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, S Kimario McFadden, P Jacob Schum and TE Tevin Westbrook.

A favorite of former coach Lovie Smith, Wright was re-upped with an incentive-laden contract in March, but ended up not even making it to final cuts. Still only 28, it's possible Wright is brought back later at a cheaper price. Schum's removal means Bryan Anger of Russell Wilson fame has won punting duties.
Aug 28 - 1:38 PM

Colts waived RB Chase Price, WR Justin Berger, S Alden Darby, G Eric Herman, DT Ricky Lumpkin, TE Mike Miller, CB Winston Rose, DE Delvon Simmons, WR Josh Stangby, and ILB Junior Sylvestre.

There are no real surprises here. Price was a UDFA out of San Diego State.
Aug 28 - 1:33 PM

Panthers waived/released WR Stephen Hill, LB Jared Barber, WR Avius Capers, TE Braxton Deave, G Reese Dismukes, DT Ray Drew, OT David Foucault, DE Tom Lally, C Matt Masifilo, WR Miles Shuler and OT Willie Smith.

That brings the roster to 79, meaning the Panthers will have to make four more cuts before Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline. Hill failed to stand out this preseason, hauling in just two of four targets for 18 yards in three appearances. The former second-round pick will hope to latch on elsewhere, though teams could be hesitant to sign him given his off-field struggles and history of knee injuries.
