The Philadelphia Inquirer confirms the Eagles have made no quarterback change as of Monday evening.

Citing sources close to both Michael Vick and rookie Nick Foles, beat writer Jeff McLane confirms neither quarterback has been informed of a switch. McLane notes that the Eagles won't resume practicing until Thursday this week -- due to their Week 9 Monday nighter -- so coach Andy Reid has an extra day to continue "evaluating" and decide on a starter for the Saints game. McLane also points out that the last time Reid changed quarterbacks, he did it on a Tuesday in September of 2010, benching Kevin Kolb for Vick.

Jeremy Langford rushed six times for 17 yards in the Bears' third preseason game.

The entire offense struggled in the first half, but as has been the case all preseason, Langford worked as the clear three-down starter, playing every snap on the Bears' first three possessions. Langford might not be a special talent, but he has a great shot to top 250 touches. He is worth a look in the fourth round.

Updating previous items, the Dallas Morning News says Tony Romo's (back) "best case" return would be after the Cowboys' Week 7 bye.

That would entail Romo missing six games, and eight weeks altogether. In all likelihood, preseason star Dak Prescott is going to make at least six starts to open the season. He is a QB2 with upside in a talented Dallas offense.

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.
