Blaine Gabbert left Thursday night's game against the Colts in the fourth quarter due to an aggravation to his left (non-throwing) shoulder injury.

Gabbert was shaken up after an Antoine Bethea sack. The quarterback was sacked three times on the night and threw a brutal pick-six en route to completing just 18-of-31 passes for 209 yards. Gabbert didn't go to the locker room, so it doesn't appear to be too serious, but he did miss a half in Oakland with the same injury in Week 7. Chad Henne is under center.

Panthers agreed to terms with S Thomas DeCoud, formerly of the Falcons, on a two-year contract.

The deal is worth up to $3.75 million, and includes a $500,000 signing bonus. DeCoud will start out as the Panthers' No. 3 safety behind Roman Harper and Charles Godfrey, but will see plenty of snaps regardless of his depth-chart position. Godfrey is coming off a torn Achilles' tendon, and expected to spend time in the slot. Now 29, DeCoud graded out as one of the worst safeties in the league in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season, and was similarly ineffective in 2012. The Panthers' front seven has a way of making defensive backs look better, however.

According to the Delaware County Times, the Eagles "made an offer" for Dolphins DE/OLB Dion Jordan earlier this offseason.

Reporter Bob Grotz's report is via a "respected NFL source." Per Grotz, the Eagles were "said to have included" Brandon Graham and a second-round pick. It's not surprising that wasn't enough for a player who was the No. 3 overall pick of last year's draft. It's also not surprising Chip Kelly is (reportedly) interested in reuniting with a player he coached at Oregon. Jordan would be a strong fit for Kelly's attacking 3-4 defense, but he'll almost certainly remain in Miami.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports transition-tagged C Alex Mack's five-year offer sheet with the Jaguars is worth $42 million, and includes a player opt-out clause after 2015.

The deal includes $18 million guaranteed over the first two seasons. The $8.4 million average annual value will make Mack the highest-paid center in the league. Mack can void the deal after 2015, and cannot be franchise tagged if he does so. However, if Mack chooses not to opt out, he'll be guaranteed $8 million for 2016. It's a creative clause, but hardly a roadblock to the Browns matching. Mack is expected to officially sign on Friday, while Cleveland is expected to match.

Miami Police will only confirm they are investigating Colin Kaepernick for a "suspicious incident," and have not classified the matter as a sexual assault.

TMZ came out of the gate claiming Kaepernick was being investigated for sexual assault, but the Miami PD is cautiously avoiding that language for the time being. That could change, but is not a minor detail. As previously reported, Kaepernick's current/former teammates Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette are also a part of the investigation. The incident in question took place at Lockette's Miami apartment.

Eli Manning is undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Thursday.

Manning suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 17. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation," Manning said in a statement. "The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks." It's unideal for a quarterback learning a new system, but Manning should be back to 100 percent well ahead of training camp. A 10-year veteran who's started every game since 2005, Manning should have little issue absorbing OC Ben McAdoo's offense.

Panthers agreed to terms with TE Ed Dickson on a one-year, $730,000 contract.

Although Dickson is coming off another disappointing season in Baltimore, he'll be in the driver's seat for No. 2 duties in Carolina. Given an opportunity to finally break out in the absence of Dennis Pitta last season, Dickson responded by catching only 25 passes in 16 games. He'll be called on to block, but has typically been a liability as a blocker. Despite the Panthers' dearth of pass catchers, Dickson should remain off the fantasy radar in 2014.

Sources tell CSN Bay Area that the 49ers are in talks with free agent WR Brandon Lloyd.

The 49ers struck out in their pursuit of free agents such as Julian Edelman, Emmanuel Sanders and Hakeem Nicks. Now they turn their attention to a 32-year-old Lloyd that was out of the NFL last year. It's yet another sign that they don't want to head into the season with Quinton Patton as the No. 3 receiver behind Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree. Lloyd began his career as a fourth-round pick of the Niners in 2003.

Reggie Bush said he's fine with a potentially reduced workload this season.

Bush sees the writing on the wall. Instead of letting Joique Bell play on a one-year RFA tender, the Lions gave him a $9.3 million contract with $4.3 million guaranteed. Furthermore, the new Jim Caldwell regime is installing fewer pass-happy shotgun formations and more traditional sets that include a fullback. We're expecting Bell to lead the team in carries while Bush (now 29 years old) operates as more of a passing back.

A source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Browns figure to match Jacksonville's five-year offer sheet to transition-tagged C Alex Mack "in no time at all."

The offer is designed to make it as difficult as possible for the Browns to match and Mack prefers to flee to the Jaguars. But Cleveland has the most cap space in the entire league and is going to use it to retain one of the game's most consistently excellent centers. They'll worry about extensions for Joe Haden, Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron down the line. Mack is going to cost the Browns at least $18 million fully guaranteed over the next two seasons, making him the game's highest-paid center.

The Detroit Free Press passes along a "growing sense in league circles" that the Lions may be willing to trade up for Clemson WR Sammy Watkins.

Sitting at No. 10 overall, the Lions are currently positioned too low for Watkins, and are even likely out of range for Texas A&M WR Mike Evans, who doesn't figure to get by the Bucs at No. 7. Beat writer Dave Birkett calls the Lions "a team desperate to reverse its downtrodden luck." Lions brass dined with Watkins before his March Pro Day, and quizzed college teammate Martavis Bryant on Watkins during Bryant's pre-draft visit to Lions headquarters. "They just asked about how we got along and stuff like that," Bryant revealed. Detroit would almost certainly have to leapfrog Oakland (No. 5) to have a serious shot at Watkins.

Ryan Broyles (Achilles') has been cleared to participate in offseason workouts.

If nothing else, Broyles has proven to be an extremely quick healer. He tore his Achilles' in late October. Broyles probably won't do much in voluntary workouts this week or at OTAs but could be ready to roll for training camp. The Lions can't rely on Broyles, but he'll have a shot to earn the No. 4 or 5 receiver job.
