Appearing on Sports Center, ESPN's Ed Werder said he's been told it's "doubtful" that DeMarco Murray (foot) will play versus the Giants in Week 8.

Werder is the one national writer with the most access to Cowboys sources, so he's a trustworthy voice. The results of Murray's Monday tests have yet to be revealed, but it seems the ligament damage still needs time to heal. "Fragile" Felix Jones suffered a bruised knee last week, though we've yet to see concern that the injury will keep him out versus the Giants. Phillip Tanner would be the next man up if Jones does miss time.

Falcons waived/released QB Sean Renfree, S Sergio Brown, OL Michael Huey, RB Gus Johnson, WR Jordan Leslie, TE Arthur Lynch, LB Ivan McLennan, CB Ryan White, and DL Brandon Williams.

There are no surprises on this list. A onetime favorite of the draftnik community, Renfree was a seventh-round pick out of Duke in the 2013 draft. Renfree was outlasted by Matt Schaub and Matt Simms at Falcons training camp.

ESPN's Jenna Laine believes the Bucs will utilize "a LOT more no-huddle" this season.

The Bucs were almost dead average in offensive pace last season, but it sounds like they plan to up the tempo this year. That is good news for Jameis Winston, who put up QB1 numbers less than a third of the time as a rookie despite finishing as the QB13. Winston might be slightly overvalued in fantasy drafts, but he is a solid upside pick.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Nelson Agholor "really stood out" this week in practice.

The comments were unprompted, suggesting Agholor's performance was good enough to be at the front of Pederson's mind. A good week of practice is certainly a positive sign, but Agholor needs to build on it with a strong showing Saturday against the Colts.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco believes Marqise Lee will be the team's "breakout star" this season.

It is unlikely Lee gets enough work to truly breakout as long as Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are healthy, but this is still a positive sign. Limited by injuries his first two seasons, Lee has finally had a healthy training camp, and he looks locked into the No. 3 job. He has also earned praise from coach Gus Bradley, who said he has shown more "maturity" this offseason. As long as he stays healthy, Lee should start to turn his career around this season.

Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem before Friday night's preseason game.

This is a non-story, but it is something the 49ers could use against Kap if they decide to move on. "The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony," the team said in a statement to Pro Football Talk. "In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem." In response to the "controversy," Kaepernick told NFL Network's Steve Wyche he is "not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color." The real story is Kaepernick was dreadful on the field Friday night, almost guaranteeing he will open the season as a backup.

According to the Sacramento Bee, "all signs" point to Blaine Gabbert getting the Week 1 start versus Los Angeles.

It's going to be a tough road for Blaine Train, who starts off versus the Rams, at the Panthers, and at the Seahawks. The 49ers then host the Cowboys and Cardinals in Weeks 4-5. Gabbert has done nothing to win the starting quarterback job this preseason, but no superior alternatives have stepped forward. Gabbert starting could be good news for the fantasy value of safety valve TE Vance McDonald.

Carlos Hyde suffered a concussion in the first half of the 49ers' preseason game Friday night.

Hyde didn't get to play much with Colin Kaepernick because he left early with the brain injury. Hyde will now be placed into the NFL's concussion protocol. He has 15 days to receive clearance in time for Week 1 against the Rams.

Asked Friday night if the 49ers have considered releasing Colin Kaepernick, coach Chip Kelly replied, "There's never been a conversation about cutting Colin Kaepernick."

Kaepernick was downright dreadful in Friday night's preseason game, looking entirely uncomfortable in new coach Chip Kelly's offense. If the 49ers aren't going to start Kaepernick, they have three options -- trade him, pay him $12 million not to play, or grant Kaepernick his release. If the 49ers opt to keep Kap around, that $12 million figure will be an awfully large bullet to bite.

Torrey Smith was not targeted in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Smith is a part of the 49ers' starting offense, but you wouldn't know it if you based your takes solely on preseason games. He's seen exactly one target through three exhibition affairs, and has a goose egg to show for it. Smith revealed this week that his 2015 effort sagged because he felt like Colin Kaepernick "wasn't looking for him." Blaine Gabbert isn't looking at Smith, either.

Jared Cook caught 4-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Packers' third preseason game Friday night.

Cook was a terrifying weapon for the 49ers' defense, shredding them down the seam between the twenties. Most importantly, Cook dominated first-team snaps, seeing 19-of-26 reps compared to just two for Richard Rodgers with the Aaron Rodgers group. Cook has always possessed a tantalizing size-speed combination, and has long been an inconsistent producer with technical flaws. He's late-round flyer material in hopes the light flipping on with Rodgers is real.

Carlos Hyde rushed four times for 30 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

If the Niners put Hyde on ice for the preseason finale, he'll finish August with 85 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries (5.67 YPC). Hyde ripped off a 27-yard run on Friday night, setting up Quinton Patton's three-yard TD. Hyde managed three yards on his other four runs. Hyde is locked in as San Francisco's bellcow back. We'll be interested to see whether the 49ers' ineptitude cuts into Hyde's fantasy production. He's got plenty of ability in his own right.
