Cowboys released CB Terence Newman.

The oft-injured 33-year-old didn't stand a chance of seeing his scheduled $6 million salary after being toasted routinely throughout the final two months of the season. The Cowboys will use the cap savings to target free agents Cortland Finnegan and Brandon Carr. Newman may have to take an incentive-laden deal on the open market.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is expected to be fine for Week 4.

Sanu missed the second half of Monday's win, but appears to have avoided major injury. Sanu was been a big part of the Falcons' offense through three games, but at less than full health against the Panthers' stout defense, he'll be a low-upside WR4 if he indeed suits up Sunday.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said to expect "a lot" of Le'Veon Bell against the Chiefs in Week 4.

Rather than easing him in, it looks like Bell will be full throttle in his return from a three-game suspension. "Rest assured, you're going to see Le'Veon Bell and a lot of him Sunday," said Tomlin when asked about Bell's workload. DeAngelo Williams enjoyed a strong opener but fizzled out over the last two weeks. Bell is going to be heavily involved in every facet of the Pittsburgh offense and makes for a no-brainer RB1 in all formats.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Patriots are "hopeful" Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) will both be available for Week 4 against the Bills.

Garoppolo almost played against Houston last week and has reportedly made steady progress in his recovery from a sprained AC joint. Meanwhile Brissett wasn't wearing any protective covering on his sprained thumb during the Patriots' media availability on Tuesday. The Pats only need to cobble together one more week of Garoppolo and Brissett before Tom Brady makes his return in Week 5.

Eli Rogers (toe) is wearing a boot on his left foot.

Rogers injured himself about halfway through Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. Coach Mike Tomlin is calling him "very questionable" for Week 4 against Kansas City. That will be the Sunday night game this week. If Rogers can't go, Sammie Coates would start in three-wide sets along with Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Tyler Eifert (ankle) is expected to miss Week 4 against the Dolphins.

Eifert has hinted at a return this week but with Cincinnati playing on Thursday night, time is not on his side. He hasn't gone through a full practice yet and has yet to make an appearance in 11-on-11 drills. The Bengals are still calling him a game-time decision, but he's looking closer to doubtful than probable. Even if Eifert played this week, he would have been on a snap count. Look for Eifert to return in Week 5 against Dallas.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said first-round WR Laquon Treadwell needs "to do better in practice."

"He's working, just biding his time until he gets an opportunity like how [Stefon] Diggs was last year," Zimmer continued. "I still think he's thinking about the number of steps to take on each route and things like that, being at the right depth." The Vikings have brought their rookies along slowly in recent years, but Treadwell is a different situation. Charles Johnson has offered nothing opposite Diggs, and the Vikings need more from their passing game if they are going to keep winning. Minnesota needs to get Treadwell involved soon.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said fifth-round RB Paul Perkins "is ready to step up."

With Shane Vereen lost for at least a couple months with a torn triceps, McAdoo has promised a "committee" in the backfield. Perkins has been limited to special teams work so far, but it sounds like he has a shot to carve out a role. Orleans Darkwa is still the favorite to start while Rashad Jennings (thumb) is sidelined and see work once Jennings gets back, but Perkins is an interesting speculative add in deeper leagues.

Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he is "still working through some things."

Eifert added he is trying to patient and trust the process. The tight end returned to practice last week and coach Marvin Lewis has said he is "close" to returning, but these comments make it seem like he is still a week away. That would make sense with the Bengals playing on Thursday night. Even if Eifert suits up, he is expected to be on a snap count.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reports Dez Bryant (knee) is expected to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Owner Jerry Jones said on the radio Tuesday morning Bryant had not undergone an MRI, but he did leave open the possibility he would have one later in the day. It looks like the test will happen, but the fact they have waited suggests there is not much concern. At this point, Bryant should still be expected to play.

Matt Ryan said his thumb is "fine."

Ryan appeared to suffer a thumb injury on his non-throwing hand against the Saints Monday night. He did not miss any snaps, but he did play the rest of the game with a glove on his left hand. "I took a hit on it in the game, but I'm fine," Ryan said. "Put a glove on just to make sure I'd get a good grip afterwards. But I'm fine. I feel pretty good." He should be good to go for a tough matchup with the Panthers this week.

Sporting News' Alex Marvez reports the 49ers are sticking with Blaine Gabbert in part because he is better in practice than Colin Kaepernick.

Coach Chip Kelly insinuated Kaepernick could be given a shot to start when he is "100 percent." He was almost certainly talking about health, but Kaepernick could also still be behind with the playbook after sitting out most of the offseason. Neither of these quarterbacks is the answer, but the 49ers should at least give Kap a shot before the end of the season.
